Q: My new apartment is very small (500 square feet) and rather awkwardly laid out, which means the only good place for my couch seems to be near a wall with a large heater on it. I spaced it about two feet away, and place a blanket over it whenever the heater is on, which thankfully isn't often (yay Southern California!), but the couch still gets fairly warm. I'm pretty sure it isn't a fire hazard, but have to wonder if I'm slowly destroying my furniture. Did anyone have a couch end up discolored or warped in some way due to placing it near a heat source?
