The difference between Artificial Leather and Rexine

Let’s have a quick look at the different aspects of the leather sofa Buying a new sofa set is like getting a new gem. There are different types, styles, fabrics, and sizes options available.
The Frames -A high-quality sofa is known by its strong and sturdy frame.
Spring System – The technical term for this is ‘ergonomics’.It’s defined by the type of spring system.
Cushions Filling- It defines the rebound ability and wear of the exquisite sofa set.
Look for durable and solid frames which ensures the life span and shape of the sofa set. The solid wood structure also ensures the comforting feel and look of the sofa.
The good quality frame is made out of kiln-dried hardwood. Kilns are the large ovens with very strictly controlled humidity and temperatures. The process of kiln drying removes all moisture from the wood, enabling it to retain its shape and stability over an extended period.
Interlocked Corner Joints frame
In a good quality frame, the joints get extra attention. Each corner of the sofa should be interlocked with blocks to have an added strength. They should be glued and screwed into the frame.
Screws Instead of Staples frame
People don’t actually realize the strength of screws. But in truth, screwed joints are often stronger. They are applied on a dowelled and glued joint to get a solid and long -lasting frame.
Doweled and Affixed Joints frame
It is a traditional and time tested way of connecting the joints to get a good quality sofa set. Joints combined with a Dowell expands when glued to connect each piece together and it’s even stronger. Then they are screwed to get a solid and durable frame structure.
Coniferous Softwood Frame
Softwoods means from a coniferous tree. These type of woods are soft and brittle and therefore are not liable for making sofa frames. Hence you should be on the lookout for hardwood like Sheesham or Indian rosewood, Teak, Acacia and so on.
Locking Joint Mechanism Frame
Locking joints do provide support to the structure but are not considered as permanent support as they are a simple groove cut so that another piece of wood can sit on it.
Stapled Edges Frame
Using staples to fasten wood pieces together is just a temporary fastening method until glue in joint cures.
Poor-quality Plywood Frame
Although plywood and particle boards can be used in quality wood furniture. But it is not recommended for upholstered frames as the accent of the decking is placed on the joints between the layers of plywood.
Eight-way Hand Tied Springs
It is the hundred-year-old spring system. In this spring support, the manufacturer connects each spring to the adjoining one with a strong twine. The string passes front to back, side to side and then diagonally in both directions, thus tying each spring securely.
Denser the sitting foam, the longer the sofa will last and retain its comfort and shape.
Moulded foam cushion filling are a much solid option, and require occasional turning to keep them looking as good as new. They may lose some of their initial density but will keep their shape for years to come. These cushions give a streamlined appearance to the sofa set.

This fibre creates a plump cushion with a medium to firm feel, suitable for all cushions. They are cost effective and are suitable for all types of cushions whether bolster, suite or scatter cushion.
