Let’s be honest, the sofa is where we spend a lot of our time. Whether we are reading a book, watching TV, or socializing on the patio, we do seem to enjoy our time with the sofa. If you have ever been to a furniture store, you probably noticed how much money a nice couch can be. With all that time we spend on the couch, we are sure to stain it, tear it, and wear it out.
