Such an execution will suit only those people who will never move up a soft furniture.
Another subspecies of “monolith” is assembled with the help of plates attached to the sidewalls. Different plates play the role of brackets and clinging the hooks. The assembly and dismantling of the design is relatively easy, if there is enough forces to raise parts of the sofa and hold them. If it does not work, the spinning of the bolts is sometimes even easier. For reliability and stability, two types of assembly almost do not differ.
But much more common Modular angular sofas. They often have 3 or more compound parts. Only one or two of them are on the corner, and others are put straight.

Consumers are also highly appreciated by Syntputs, which perfectly spring and easily holds heat. But you can meet it mostly inside the backs and armrests.

As for the upholstery of the angular sofa, it is selected in accordance with the conditions of operation and aesthetics of the room. Beautifully looking velvet and tapestry gradually come out of turnover. Flock, Scotchgard, Arpatek and Shenill are more popular (it is especially recommended for children’s models).
Most often in the late 2010th year sofas are painted in monophonic warm tones. At the peak of popularity Sand and beige colors. It helps the upholstery “Cold Fog” helps. Care for pure-white soft furniture is difficult.
