Furniture is manufactured all over the world; Over the past 25 years in the UK, flat pack furniture has grown in popularity with IKEA stores popping up all over the UK. Swedish flat design furniture was considered cool and modern and could be had at a fraction of the price or ready made furniture. The only difference is that you had to assemble the furniture yourself.

Although people have been buying “Swedish” furniture from Ikea, the supply chain is actually from more than 50 countries, many of which are developing countries so that Ikea can keep prices low. In fact, China accounts for two and a half times more supply than Sweden itself.

Recently, there has been a backlash in the purchase of goods manufactured in China; People were boycotting goods made in China due to the concerns of the Chinese worker. But also that the products and  Indonesia Furniture Manufacturer  in China are not considered to be of good quality.

So how do we judge whether a piece of furniture or a sofa is of good quality? Is it only in appearance, where was it made, what is it made of or something deeper? The secret is…what’s inside matters.

How long the sofa will last depends largely on the frame; The skeleton of the sofa. A high-quality sofa will have a strong and durable sofa. I don’t pretend to be an expert carpenter but I have good authority that the frame needs to be built of solid wood, which is where furniture made in China is often lacking in lower quality.

The sturdy frame provides a structure for good seating support; It should not sag, but provide good support in the seat and back. You can’t just sit on a sofa frame, so padding is another key to a quality sofa. If you want a really soft seat, consider lower cushions. This is a premium option, and as you might imagine it’s also among the most expensive.

Quality furniture is not cheap, quality furniture requires constant research and keeping up to date with the latest news in the world of furniture manufacturing but you have to buy the best quality you can afford.
