Almost anyone can pick out a sofa from a catalog, website or storefront, but is it constructed well? Is the fabric sturdy, resilient, stain proof, cleanable, prone to snags? What about the springs? Are they eight-way hand-tied? What is the frame made of? Is the dealer reputable? If there is a problem, will the dealer stand by the product? All these questions just for one sofa; this doesn’t even address where to place it or what to buy to complement the piece. A proficient interior designer will address all of these concerns for the products, materials and other items needed for the interior improvement project.
