Second to buying a piece of property, sofa shopping is probably one of the most "adult" things you can do (or at least, it certainly feels that way considering how much money you're about to spend just to be able to comfortably sit down in your home). You go from store to store (or website to website), picking out your favorite look from the pack, but...then what? How do you know if that sofa is the right fit? And by "right fit" I don't mean, whether it will fit into your living room (though, that's certainly first and foremost!); rather I mean, will it be truly comfortable to you and your specific needs? To help you along in your sofa-buying journey, I put together this checklist of what to test to get as close as you can to the best couch for you.
