Island furniture recommendations
I am ready to buy furniture and need advice. I am toying with buying a sleeper sofa but some people have told me that they tend to get very musty, buggy and just plain gross in this climate. Also - the one I am looking at is the traditional overstuffed style - not a rattan or wicker base. Again, I have heard to steer clear of this type of furniture. So .. let's hear all your opinions on what works ( and doesn't work) down here in paradise!
Some of really depends on your own house and its exposure to moisture and sunlight -- My traditional style sofa has always been fine -- I do vacuum it and spread the cushions out in the sun on occasion -- if you can't get light and fresh air into the room it takes a bit of effort to keep fabric dry - take it a piece at a time and some rooms may be better than other too.
I think that as long as you are able to air out the furniture on a regular basis you should be fine. On occasion you should open up the bed and give it a chance to breathe.
