Are you really sure you don’t feel comfortable because of sofa or the cushion? Some time replacing the cushion on your sofa is better than replacing the sofa itself. Replacement of sofa cushions can transform your living experience by providing renewed comfort, the perfect style to fit your decor and most important, a lasting performance. The comfort you achieve from a sofa is completely given by its cushions, so why replace sofa? Instead buy new comfy cushions.
