Best Answer

A sofa frame is usually made from wood but other options include steel, plastic, and laminated boards or a combination of the above. Kiln-dried maple wood deemed free of knots, bark, and compromising defects is used under the upholstery. The show wood of the legs, arms, and back can also be maple, but sometimes mahogany, walnut, or fruitwoods are used for carved legs or moldings. Typical sofas have soft leather, corduroy or linen fabric coverings, thought the padding underneath is made some kind of synthetic padding.
