Ready to pick your favourite from our extensive two-seater sofa collection? Just take a seat.
Choosing the right 2-seater sofa
Size is only half the story when it comes to choosing a new 2-seater sofa. We promise that all our 2-seater sofas will comfortably fit at least two adults so with that in mind it's now time to focus on some of the more important details like the style.
When you’re choosing a 2-seater sofa you may have a good idea of the style direction you want to go in, perhaps based on the current look of your living space or an idea of how you want your living room to look. If you prefer modern contemporary style with its clean lines, well-finished furniture and understated approach to home accessories, you’ll enjoy browsing our collection of modern two seater sofas. Many of the two-seater sofas in this part of our collection combine modern style motifs with comfort features – high backs, wide arms and deep cushioning – to give you the best of both worlds.
Love the look of a traditional sofa? Even a small sofa can offer authentic traditional style. Our traditional 2-seater sofas feature details like scroll arms, buttoning and luxurious fabric upholstery. You’ll even find small sofas in our Chesterfield sofa collection, a must if you love the look of this very British style of sofa.
If exceptional comfort comes high on your list of two seater sofa requirements, then we recommend you spend some time browsing our list of 2-seater sofas with recliners. Whether you choose power recliners or manual recliners, you’ll be guaranteed an extra-comfortable experience – simply sit back, put your feet up and relax. Our 2-seater sofas with recliners are unbeatable and make it easy for you to find your perfect movie-watching position or treat yourself to a well-earned nap.
And for the ultimate in versatility, we’re proud to introduce our 2-seater sofa bed collection. If you have room for only one sofa in your home, a sofa bed is an excellent choice. Family relaxation by day, handy guest bed by night, our sofa beds are the original multifunctional furniture item. Today’s sofa beds are easy to operate, and feature superior construction and high-end mattresses. They’re a far cry from the old-fashioned uncomfortable sofa beds of yesteryear. In fact, most modern sofa beds don’t look like sofa beds at all – just stunningly stylish sofas.
As there’s so many 2-seater sofas to choose from, we’re here to help as you wrestle with your decision. Our handy sofa and armchair buying guide offers lots of points to consider so you can be sure you’re weighing every factor as you make your 2-seater sofa decision.
Choosing the right material for your two-seater sofa
If you’ve already started browsing our 2-seater sofa collection you’ve probably realised that most small sofas come in one of two types of upholstery material – two seater fabric sofas and two seater leather sofas. Our fabric sofa collection offers many different fabric options from velvet to cotton, chenille to microfibre and more. What’s right for you largely depends on personal preference as well as practicality.
For example, if you have young children or pets at home, we recommend a more hardwearing fabric like a heavy cotton or something with a woven texture for your 2-seater sofa. You may also want to seek out fabrics that are labelled “family friendly” or “easy care”. Velvets and linens are lovely to look at and comfortable to sit on but may need more everyday care and cleaning than you can reasonably commit too.
Leather sofas can be a great choice for busy families and households. While leather is often considered to be a luxury upholstery, certain grades of leather are particularly hardwearing and easy to care for. And the fabulous thing about leather is that it tends to look better with age.
The finishing touches
Thanks to their compact size, two-seater sofas tend to fit neatly into any design scheme. Understated and elegant, they look fabulous in both classic and contemporary interiors. If you’re building a whole new living room look around your new 2-seater sofa, however, know that you can create something fabulous with only a few well-chosen extra pieces.
If you love traditional style, choose a wood coffee table or end tables from a brand like Old Charm, famous for its authentic reworkings of traditional Tudor and Elizabethan oak furniture. Prefer clean contemporary style? Pair your new two seater sofa with a high-gloss display cabinet from a brand like ALF or a pale oak sideboard from iconic British brand Ercol. (Our occasional tables buying guide has lots of useful advice if you’re looking at end tables and lamp tables).
If you have all the furniture you need, a new two seater sofa is a good enough excuse to treat you and your living room to some new finishing touches like a super soft rug, a couple of new cushions and a stylish table lamp. Our lighting collection has a wide choice of overhead lighting and lamps so you're sure to find something that looks great in your living space.
Need extra seating in addition to your new 2-seater sofa? Our armchair collection offers plenty of very stylish options. In a more compact room, an accent chair or two provides extra seating without taking up too much room, or go for a storage footstool – useful extra storage space for living room bits and pieces plus an impromptu extra seat for whenever the occasion (or the guests) demands.
