Purchasing a new sofa can be quite a stressful task: it’s an investment piece and there are so many styles to choose from! Keep these 3 rules in mind when on the hunt for your new sofa:
- Style: if you have a cosy, traditional space, a Chesterfield style looks amazing. But if your living room is all crisp lines and monochrome colour palette, opt for a sofa that is super-contemporary in design.
- Size: a small room with an oversized sofa is a recipe for disaster. Like it or not, if you have a small space, you’re going to need to invest in a more modestly sized piece of furniture. Take a look at our funky 2-seater styles here.
- Space: the final consideration is where the sofa will be placed in your room. If you know that it’s going to be pushed against a wall, you can opt for a cosy corner sofa – a large space can benefit from sofas pushed forwards away from the walls, creating a cosy living space.
Take a look at our (current!) favourite sofas:
We are going crazy over the divine plum shade of this 3 seater sofa. If you want to inject a feminine vibe into your lounge without an onslaught of floral prints and excessively girly shades, this sophisticated piece is perfect for you. Team with deep mahogany shades and orchids – the simplest way to ensure a truly elegant, but contemporary feel.
The warm chocolatey shade of this 3 seater evokes images of cuddly night with hot chocolate and furry throws – we already want to get into our pyjamas just thinking about it. With this colour, make sure that you invest in soft, warm lighting (the last thing you want is for the space to look drab). This sofa was made to be placed on a creamy beige carpet, at pride of place in the focal point of the room.
This elegant sofa will look great in an otherwise monochrome-hued room, using the grey to offer a little respite from the boldness of black and white. We also adore the arm rests: they look perfect for a cheeky afternoon nap on a Sunday. Accessorise with oodles of cosy cushions and a textured throw. You can also opt for the floral print shown above if you prefer a more girly approach.
