It’s hard to name one family television sitcom that doesn’t involve a living room with a couch in the middle of it all. From The Simpsons to Married with Children to Friends to Meathead’s favorite spot in Archie Bunker’s house, the sofa is front and center in everyone’s home. It makes perfect sense as the center of a lot of family activity. Some sofas double as recliners, futons, or convertible beds, adding to their utility. When considering a sofa for your home, think about the size of the couch as well as the room, the quality of its construction as well as the type of cushioning and upholstery that best reflects your needs.
