Uniquely yours: 5 ways to customize a sofa

You already know that buying Canadian-made furniture is better for the local economy, better for the environment, and almost always means better quality. One other benefit of shopping local for your next sofa? Custom orders are completed quickly, and they’re not as expensive as you might think.

“We work with many Canadian manufacturers, like Elite Sofa Designs, Elran, and Décor-rest to bring our customers exactly what they want in a relatively quick timeline,” says Love Dodd from Dodd’s Furniture and Mattress.

If you’ve never shopped local before, you might be surprised at how easy it is to customize a sofa! Here are five ways to make that living room furniture uniquely yours:

  1. Size: Three seats or two? Left- or right-facing cuddler? Maybe a chaise? Armless? Recliner? Measure your space and customize your sofa or sectional to fit. You’ll be amazed at how much of the living room furniture at Dodd’s can be customized to your preferred size and shape.
  2. Fabric: Match your sofa to the rest of your decor, break out with a new style and even mix and match different fabrics. Elite Sofa Designs in Vancouver offers more than 400 fabrics to choose from (and new fabrics handpicked by Elite stylists added frequently too) so you’re sure to find something that hits the current trend or embodies a timeless style. “Colour is just one part of your fabric choice. Durability, softness and material can also be customized to match your lifestyle,” Dodd says.
  3. Cushion firmness: Plush, medium or firm? Comfort is subjective so some manufacturers will even let you choose the perfect support for your needs.

  4. Sofa bed: Expecting company? You can add a bed to many of the sofas at Dodd’s, adding versatility to your stylish new seating.
  5. Tufts: Prefer clean lines to buttons and patterned tufting? The choice is yours! Tufting first became popular in Victorian England, where it served a practical purpose keeping stuffing in place, and also was a sign of wealth. Modern sofas have embraced the tufting trend, with different patterns like diamond, channel and biscuit tufting.
