A sofa frame is the index of the quality of the sofa as the frame makes the backbone of the sofa. Some common frame types are elaborated as under:

  • Hardwood – Hardwood is a commonly used frame material made after drying out the wood. The process is known as kiln-dring and the material thus obtained is referred to as kiln-dried hardwood. Hardwood prevents snapping and warping of the furniture due to which it is the top pick to make a solid, sturdy and durable sofa.

  • Engineered wood (particle board) – Although a particle board (commonly known as plywood) gives a feel of the same sturdy and strong build as hardwood, but it is much cheaper, lightweight, and cost-effective in comparison. Moreover, it is not as durable as hardwood.

  • Metal – It is also a very commonly used frame material. It will not snap but is prone to bending upon regular and vigorous usage.
