We don't use sofa any more although it's quite comfortable. We use wooden furniture today. It looks nice all the time and it won't change as time goes by. And even it may become to antique after a long time. Whereas the shape of the sofa looks worse and worse after some time. Besides, it's easy to clean the wooden furniture.

My Apartment Living And Dining Room - This is a photo of my apartment living and dining room
Hi attach is the furniture in my living room and the dining area. The dining table can be open up but since there's only my husband and me we have folded the dining table up into half. It's a foldable dining table. The sofa we have is very "cushiony" Therefore its nice to sit especially when watching movie/tv. My husband will always sit near the window where the extended sofa is. I agree with you that wooden furniture is nice and yes they won't go out of trend. There's also a study table in our living room made of teak wood. Its a very heavy study table. The cleaning of our sofa is done by using the vacuum cleaner. Wherelse the tv rack which is made of wood is wiped by me using a damped cloth. Dining table is also made of wood but I have put a table cloth over it. Cloth is washed every week.

In my lounge I have a three seater sofa, a blue play mat, a high chair, and Mexican style pine furniture. I have a book case, a display case, a cupboard, two coffee tables, a black dining table and wooden chairs. In my kitchen I have pine units, a washing machine, a dryer, a fridge, a micro wave, a cooker and a sink. In my hall I have a display case. In my bedroom I have a black metal bed and pine furniture. I have a cupboard and two chests of drawers. In my children's bedroom I have a bed, a cot, a chest of drawers and a cupboard. My bathroom suite is white and I have a toilet, a hand basin and a bath. I have a en suite shower in my bedroom. I really like wooden furniture.

If you had a cat at your home, I am afraid you have to change your sofa sooner. This is my experience

Hi youless! I do use wooden furniture although I do have cushions made for them to sit on. I really want to sit on something soft. haha..But I do agree with you that in time, the cushion will get worse and worse after a lot of sittings. lol Take care always..God Bless!

Hello youless. That is true indeed that it is easier to clean wooden furniture, especially wooden chairs. Well, when we moved into our apartment in 2003, we bought all of our new pieces of furniture from the biggest furniture market in Guangzhou. We hired a truck and my wife and brother-in-law went together with the truck to get all the furniture we need in our new apartment. I love what we bought, especially the king-size bed and other double-beds as well as the three comfortable green sofas in the living room. These three pieces are my favorite, though we have also some other nice pieces. . .

I do not like wooden furniture to be honest and I find it quite hard and uncomfortable, I like the soft furnishing and apart from the dining table that is the only thing that is wooden or made of wood in my house, everything else is fully furnished. Besides my dad is very very heavy and the wood wouldn't be able to support his body LOL! He collapsed through one before, very funny but not very economical.

My dad dislikes wooden furniture. The reason is he is very skinny. Sofa will be much more comfortable for him

I have a rottan settee at home. I have discarded my PVC sofa as it has worn out. My rottan settee has been there for more than 5 years now and it is more comfortable than my previous settee. Rottan last for ages and it improvise as it ages. So I think that's my last bit of furniture that I am going to keep. I don't intend to replace it anymore no matter what ever latest design comes up.
