Microfiber is probably one of the most opportune inventions in terms of advanced upholstery. Fancy materials such as Italian leather and cashmere certainly look and feel great, but we all know that they are not the easiest to clean or care for, and the same can be said about all other natural fibers. At SofaDreams, some of our most luxurious sofas and sectionals are available in commercial grade leather that can withstand heavy use; an example in this regard would be a sofa placed in the lobby of a busy office, but once we start talking about households where pets are allowed to plump down on the furniture, we need to start talking about microfiber.
The use of synthetic fabric dates back to the middle of the 20th century, but things got really interesting in the 1970s with the introduction of Ultrasuede, a microfiber that offered a vast improvement over vinyl. Modern microfiber upholstery is made with nylon and polyester fabrics that are incredibly thin; we are talking about filaments that are hundreds of times finer than the cotton thread normally used for sewing, and they are woven into synthetic fibers that feel great to the touch. For many pet owners, microfiber is the way to go; this advanced fabric is not only durable but also very easy to clean. Let's take a look at some of our most popular microfiber sofas:
As one of our most striking furniture pieces, this sofa-couch concept looks as if it belongs in a futuristic space station. The half-circle form of this sectional sofa provides all the comfort of a couch, and it can comfortably sit more than five people. The microfiber version of this piece would be perfect in a trendy nightclub.
At our furniture design studio, we like to think of everything when creating a new piece. The Aurelio sectional sofa includes a recliner function that does not let walls in the way of comfort, which means that you can set this microfiber sofa against the wall and it will still be able to recline.
Many of our most stylish sofas are large sectionals, but this one is an exception. The Manhattan microfiber sectional has been designed with smaller spaces in mind, which means that you will be able to arrange it in an apartment.
Microfiber is just one of the various upholstery materials we use to design sofas, couches, and sectionals that feature the best in style, comfort, and durability.

You’ll normally find that people use the casual terms sofa and couch interchangeably, but there’s actually supposed to be a difference between them. At times you might also hear people refer to sitting on a Davenport, which is closer to a dedicated sofa bed. While there’s plenty of overlap in the way the two terms are used, it’s fortunately really easy to specify exactly the type of furniture you’re looking for in a living space.
Trends come and go in the world of interior design, but they tend to take longer to cycle when it comes to furniture. An interesting trend that has been developing over the last few years is centered on the living room; whereas furniture sets with traditional designs were predominant from about 1990 through the first decade of the 21st century, we are seeing a stronger focus on larger couches and sectional sofas that combine comfort with functionality and lots of styles.
The look of the moment is inspired by the Futurism movement that originated in Italy during the early 20th century and spread through Europe and the Americas with certain variants such as Atomic Age. Here are three sofas that adhere to this aesthetic:
In 2018, the film ?Solo: A Star Wars Story? gave us a look at how the Millennium Falcon looked when it was still a gleaming new spacecraft. The Hollywood 3-2-1 Couch Set looks like it belongs in one of the Falcon?s lounges, and it can be equipped with features such as a wireless charger, USB connectors, and even a cup holder to keep your drinks frosty.
The living room design of the 1980s featured sleek furniture in primary colors with a streamlined look, and this is exactly what you get with our Los Angeles sectional. This U-shaped sofa includes storage spaces and LED mood lighting that you can adjust with remote control. The three color schemes of this sofa are white, red, and black. Pairing this gorgeous piece of furniture with a smoked glass matching coffee table is the ultimate homage to smart 1980s design. The fabric and leather mix of this sofa means that you get the best of both worlds in terms of texture.
This is the favorite furniture piece in the home of Kimbella, star of the reality television series ?Love & Hip-Hop.? The fine leather of this U-shaped sofa features a Noble Chesterfield quilting pattern that makes it very attractive. This is one of our most traditional models in terms of design, but you can always make it futuristic by adding premium top grain leather with orange coloring.
