Spotlight on Sofas

March 17:03:21

Shape and size

Large, sprawling sofas are all well and good in theory, but do you actually have space for one to fit? A sofa that’s too big for the room will look cramped and make the actual room look smaller. For generous rooms or open-plan spaces, a corner or chaise is a great choice. Perfect for large
families that want space to spread out and can be tucked into corners and rearranged to suit your lounge. Most of our corner sofas are available as left or right hand facing for the ultimate in flexibility.

If space is tight choose a sofa with low arms as it will make your room look larger than it is and a design with a low back or taller legs will allow more light to flow around it. Be sure to choose a sofa size that won’t dominate the room; ensure you can fit your other furniture around and move around freely. Our small but perfectly formed sofas provide the perfect place to relax.

Fabric or Leather

Once you’ve decided on the shape and size of your sofa the next consideration is the fabric and colour. We have a fantastic range of both fabric and leather sofas and chairs; here’s a few key pointers on which might be right for you…

Fabric If you’re looking for a wide choice of colour options, fabric is the option for you. Many fabrics are durable and versatile; for everyday seating in a room you use a lot, you might prefer a hard-wearing flat weave fabric. Velvet is the on-trend fabric of the moment. Available in an assortment of stunning shades, velvet instantly adds a touch of luxury and warmth to your space.

Leather (and faux leather) is the perfect choice if you want a sofa that’s easy to look after, durable and long-lasting. A great buy if you’ve got children or pets, dust and light dirt can be cleaned away with a damp cloth. A natural product, a leather sofa will soften and relax, making it even more comfortable with time!

Choosing the right colour

Do you want your new sofa to coordinate with your existing interior scheme? Or are you looking to redecorate and create a totally new look? Whichever route you choose our sofa collections come in a range of colours to suit every taste. Looking for a modern neutral? Blues and greys are a fresh, contemporary option that work on almost all sofa shapes and sizes. Beige, caramel and cream tones are having a major resurgence and are the ultimate in tranquil living rooms. Want to make a statement with colour? We’ve got some stunning strong yet subdued shades,
perfect for adding some much-need positive vibes to your home. Greens continues to be a key trend; a versatile shade, inspired by nature, which creates an inviting and welcoming living room.

Whatever your style, budget or space, we’ve got the perfect sofa for you.
