Making custom easy.

     Custom can be a wonderful way to get exactly what you want. For some it may be a little overwhelming. The most efficient way to overcome this frustration is to keep in mind; that although there are many options, not all of these options are meant for your space. Every space has a different theme or use. The trick to custom is to keep an open mind, use a little imagination, and most importantly; don’t get held up on styles that are obviously not meant for you space. Although, you may have the mindset that you have to look at every single style and fabric; this can be recipe for disaster. A proficient way to go about custom, at least at the Sofa Outlet, is to find an inspiration. By using pieces of furniture, pillows, magazines, or even just your favorite colors can help you to bring your vision together. In doing this, it also helps you to learn how to hone in on fabrics and styles that work for you. Learning to disregard options that may be interesting and beautiful, but not for your space. At the Sofa Outlet our friendly and knowledgeable staff can help you in doing this. Being that our staff has  familiarity with our options, spacial awareness, and eye for color tones makes custom a quick and easy process.

Microfiber- A Parent's Best Friend!

As microfiber sofas are pretty easy to maintain, they are becoming a number one fabric preference in househoulds all around.  Not only are microfibers soft, lightweight, and easy to care for- but they are the perfect fabric choice for those who suffer from allergies as well, because the fibers leave no lint or dust.  Microfibers are inheritably CLEANABLE!! Now this is another reason families are going with this route in fabric selection for their new sofas.  There's no reason to worry anymore about your kids spilling their juice, or pets leaving traces of dirt, since cleaning will be a simple process on any true microfiber. 
Mostly all microfibers base content is polyester.  When using fabrics that consist of polyester, there is no need to get your sofa scotch guarded due to the fact that the fabric alone is stain resistant.  Generally, all you would need to do is mix a little bit of mild detergent (such as dish soap or laundry detergent) with some water, to wipe off any stain.  At Sofa Outlet we have a wide selection of microfibers to choose from, that are different colors and textures.  Come in today to pick out your new microfiber sofa!!!!

Just right!

When the typical sofa size is just too large for your space and the loveseat just doesn't cut it; it can be discouraging. Luckily, there is a solution for this predicament, and that is "apartment size” sofa. Apartment sofas are bigger than a loveseat but smaller than a sofa; so this for many is the perfect compromise! Three people can still fit comfortably on an apartment size sofa, and almost every style measures out to fit any type of home. Apartment sofas are actually not that easy to find when you are in the market to buy. At the Sofa Outlet we are able to make an apartment sofa in any style; unlike places such as Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel, Restoration Hardware, etc... Come in today and pick from any of our 800 styles and over 2,000 fabrics to custom make your perfect apartment sofa today! And remember, SITTING IS BELIEVING!

Just that easy

Sometimes you find inspiration in the most unsuspected places. I was flipping through a magazine today and a lightbulb went off in my head. I ran up stairs and grabbed a few items that were perfect for what I was about to create. Combining different textures and colors that were similar to the magazine photo gave it depth and a comfy feel. Who would have known that decorating was as easy as laying out your favorite outfit.

Upholstered Headboards

Upholstered headboards add a sophisticated elegance in a space. You can have it in a beach cottage, traditional home, or in any household. You can do it alone as a headboard or have the option of a foot board or platform. Upholstered headboards have the ability to give your room a soft welcoming feel. You can also dress it up with nail heads or tufting. If you are not able to do linens or cottons in your family room, this is the perfect opportunity to get what you want. The great thing about our upholstered headboards is the fact that you are able to customize anything; from the size and shape, to the style of the feet. You would think that in order to get a custom headboard you would have to break the bank; however that is not the case at the Sofa Outlet. You can compare our styles to high-end lines such as Ralph Lauren, Restoration Hardware, and William Sonoma for a third of the cost! It always amazes me that you are able to get exactly what you want, U.S. and custom made at such a fantastic price.
