Choose a sofa that cocoons you in comfort

The living room is the heart of the home, and your sofa is the most important piece of furniture in it. Are you sitting comfortably?

A sleek, clean lined modern sofa in leather or fabric with lift-up headrests could be the perfect choice if you love contemporary style – and the deep, foam filled interiors will pamper you too. Or, if you prefer relaxed country living, a classic or pillow back 3 seater sofa with pocket sprung seats and luxury fibre or feather filled cushions could be just what you’re looking for. If you need extra support, browse our high-back sofas with sumptuous arm rests and inbuilt lumbar cushioning.

A fabulously stylish corner sofa is perfect for snuggling up on to watch that box-set. Or, if you simply want to curl up with a cup of coffee or a good book, there’s a wide choice of armchairs and cuddle chairs to choose from – in every style, material and colour. Get ready to cosy up in style!

Find a dining set you’ll love to gather around

Dining tables are for so much more than mealtimes. They are where we meet to talk, make plans or help children with crafts or homework – so it’s important to find one that suits your lifestyle.

A modern dining table with a marble or glass top or a bright white glossy finish gives the illusion of more space and reflects the light and you’ll find it surprisingly easy to clean and care for too. Or, if you prefer the classic beauty of wood, a wooden dining table never goes out of style. If you want to seat a crowd, clever flip-top tables double in size – and some extending dining tables can seat up to ten.

Cluster Dining Chairs

Pamper your family with comfy, upholstered dining chairs that everybody will want to linger in – there are so many shapes, styles and colours you’ll feel spoilt for choice. The extra dining chairs used when a table is extended can find a happy second home in your hallway, office or spare room or even as an occasional chair in your bedroom.

Treat yourself to a better night’s sleep

In a recent ‘OnePoll’ survey by Furniture Village, 65% of 2000 homeowners said being able to sleep in their ‘own’ bed is the reason why their house felt like home. Since we spend over a third of our lives asleep, it’s important to find the right one.

From divan beds with stylish upholstered and cushioned headboards to simple, beautifully made wooden bed frames there are so many styles to choose from, in every size from super king to small single. A larger sized bed such as a king size allows you to stretch right out, and most mattresses come in a choice of comfort levels.

Your mattress is key to a comfortable, uninterrupted night’s sleep, if you’ve had yours for seven years or more then according to the Sleep Council it could be time for a replacement. We have something to suit everyone including all the big-name brands and the latest sleep technology, with our handy online mattress finder to help you decide. A mattress with zoned pocket springs and edge to edge support prevents ‘roll-together’, a memory foam mattress supports every contour of your body, and many mattresses now include innovative temperature regulating layers to keep you feeling fresh and cool, all night long.

Find your perfect place to retreat to after a long day. A deep and restful night’s sleep boosts your immunity, brainpower, energy and lowers your stress levels. So a comfy bed topped with luxurious bedding and pillows is not just a pleasure to sleep in, it’s life-enhancing too.

Office Chair & Desk

Opt for ergonomic desks and chairs

For healthy and productive home-working, it’s important to be as comfortable as possible. You don’t want to ruin your back perching at the kitchen table or slouching on the sofa with your laptop.

A properly designed, adjustable office chair will keep your spine straight and your back healthy as you work, as will a desk of the right height. Where possible, it’s a good idea to keep work and relaxing zones separate. If you can, create a dedicated work space in your spare room or in the corner of a multi-purpose room.


Keep calm with clever storage

It’s impossible to be truly comfortable at home if there’s a maddening amount of mess everywhere. Which is where clever storage comes in. With only treasured items on display, you can bring calm, order and a feeling of space to every room.

In the living room, a storage coffee table or ottoman footstool hides away the clutter beautifully. And, for the living room or dining room, we have a wide choice of stylish sideboards and display units in every style from Industrial to Scandi. Make your bedroom a calming space with semi-fitted wardrobes that hide everything away, or an ottoman bed with acres of hidden storage.
