I love this article. Every now and then, a client refuses to fluff as necessary and complains about the look of their sofa as though it is a manufacturing defect! If you want a perfect looking sofa - you must work for it. Even "perfect" is not a term that should be used on people or furniture!

Jenny Baez Design Ah ---- the word "perfect" as you used it - I think what most people mean by perfect is that it is the best it can be for who/what they are or the situation, etc. Perfect=best it can be. I do realize, however, that some people insist on true perfection scenarios, but you'll notice too, that they're never quite happy. Just my two cents. But that said, I agree with what you say, maintenance is what it's all about to achieve that "perfection" - Look at a 1955 Chevrolet maintained well, then go to an auto graveyard.
