Why You Need to Get this Custom Modular Sofa

An Allform modular sofa in a living room.

I’ve been meaning to update my furniture since I’m home most of the time. I feel like my old couch is too big for such a small space. I have been looking at sectional sofas or something with a chaise lounge but I was afraid the pieces were going to be too big.

Finding the perfect sofa is always a challenge, kind of like car shopping. I have been looking all over and couldn’t find anything in the price range I wanted or the style I wanted. Then I came across Allform. It is a modern furniture company that puts together stylish and sleek pieces that are very comfortable. The style is similar to Mid-Century Modern but without the hefty prices.

Allform produces modular sofas and some are even chaise sectionals. It has several options of deep vibrant colors using some environmentally friendly fabrics. Basically, you can customize your very own sofa in three easy steps:

  1. Choose the style you want: Loveseat, sofa, sectional, or even an armchair.
  2. Choose the fabric. You have seven fabric colors to choose from and two leather colors.
  3. Choose the leg color: Natural wood, walnut, or espresso.

That’s it! Of course, you can choose to add on options like throw pillows, lumbar pillows, an ottoman, and even various sized weighted blankets.

If you really have a large space, Allform offers modules all the way up to eight seats and various layouts like a double chaise or corner sectionals. The thing you would need to worry about is how many coffee tables you will need for your new seating arrangements.

The modular sofas use performance fabrics that are scratch-, and stain-resistant. Allform uses high-grade foam and fiber that are designed for a balance of cushiness and comfort. The hardwood frame is sturdily made and is kiln-dried and laminated. Allform sources its hardwoods from Sustainable Forest Initiative certified vendors. The fabric is treated with an eco-friendly stain-resistant product to protect against water, oil, and soiling. The leather tanning process uses a small amount of coloring for the richest color possible without disturbing the natural grain of the leather.

The three-seat sofa is the most popular and measures 90 inches wide by 38 inches deep by 34 inches tall and the leg height is 6 inches. To keep the sofa from sagging, the webbed Tempered Steel Flexolator Grid System uses 11-gauge helical spring coils and is all manufactured in North Carolina.

I really like the fact that Allform is committed to sustainability and eco-friendly products. Its facilities are mindful of water and energy usage, and it even converted its facility to LED lighting. Allform uses water-based glues, all of the material is 95% recycled material, and it uses 100% recycled packaging and padding.

Allform makes it super easy to change up your love seat or sofa. Say you want a sectional for the living room; all you have to do is order the module and it comes with all the hardware and the legs. The best part? You don’t need any tools to assemble the furniture! Which is great since I live in the city and don’t have any tools.

You’ll Never Have to Pivot a Sofa Again Thanks to Ikea’s Newest Collection

It’s been estimated that by 2050, 68% of the world’s population will be living in urban areas. That’s a whole lot of people trying to cram into areas that aren’t easily able to expand in order to accommodate this surge. The only solution is turning larger apartments into smaller studios, obliging people looking to move to the city to get creative with how they live. Luckily, tiny living has been trending for years now and there are endless tips on how to maximize space. However, there’s a dirty little secret they don’t tell you about the tiny living trend — it’s really hard to find furniture that fits. 

If you have ever tried squeezing into an urban apartment, you know what a challenge it is to turn those small spaces into cozy places to call home. Even “apartment-size” sofas are too big for a standard New York City studio. And if you do manage to get a sofa in there (after a lot of pivoting), the idea of moving it out is so daunting it’s easier to just leave that sofa behind when you leave for your next place. Furniture giant Ikea saw the struggle of small space dwellers and created an all new collection of modular, easy-to-move furniture.

Why You Really Should Make Your Bed Every Morning
why you should make your bed, messy tan bed sheets

When you’re heavy-eyed and coffee-less trying to stretch the last corner of your fitted sheet over your mattress, you’re bound to spend a few sleepy seconds wondering why you bother making your bed every morning just to muss them up every night. As tedious a chore as it may seem, making your bed is a valuable routine to adopt, with benefits that go beyond your bedroom. As National Make Your Bed Day (September 11) is here, there’s no better time to take a deeper look at this healthy habit.
The Why
The most obvious benefit of making your bed every day is pretty simple: it looks nice. Like most bedrooms, yours is probably decorated around the bed, making the area where you sleep the focal point of the room. You’re not likely to focus any other room of your house around a messy, chaotic center, so why do so in the room that should be most relaxing? Making your bed neat and tidy makes your whole bedroom an aesthetically pleasing space.
