When cared for and maintained properly, sofas will last for many years. Many people select sofas in neutral tones so that as their decor changes, they do not have to switch out their sofas. In some cases a sofa will graduate to another room when it has outlived its decorating usefulness in a room. By selecting sofas with fabrics that are durable, moving them to a part of the home with more traffic will not damage the sofa.
Consumer demand, technology, and function have turned the sofas that were once unused pieces of home art into durable, functional, furniture that often is seen as large comfortable chairs. While appearance was the catch word in the 18th century, today sofas are about comfort, durability, and sturdiness. Selecting sofas for a home requires that one consider the location, space, and use of the sofa. It is important to take into consideration the type of use it will receive on a daily basis. Many designers and artists are utilized on a regular basis by sofa manufacturers to design sofas which meet the aesthetic desires of a market that is constantly changing decor. Incorporating sofas into the decor of a home often involves a major investment in a piece that will enhance or highlight the decor of a home. The correct sofa will add to the decor or create the focal point for the decor of a room.

The sofa must be able to withstand spills, jumping, and general abuse from children who will find the sofa a haven for play.

The styles and designs of sofas are infinite. One can have a sofa designed to match a specific decor if they choose a design that is unique.

Central to the appeal of this London sofa style is the emphasis placed on human comfort achieved through significant padding and stuffing around the frame or body of the sofa design. In many cases, traditional materials such as feather and down are used with a protective foam wrapping to ensure that the sofa maintains its shape with minimal maintenance required. As with many sofas designed in London during this period, innovative new stitching and stuffing techniques were required to achieve this result, which have since become standard practice within the upholstery profession.
