You tell a friend that you’re looking for a new sofa and you can predict their reaction. That’s a big decision, he or she will say, with real sympathy. There might even be an eye roll or a rueful shake of the head involved. After all, they may have been through the same bewildering process. How on earth do you choose? Where on earth should you start? There are so many different styles out there to choose from, and buying a sofa – well – it’s such a big commitment.
Your sofa is the undisputed star of your living room, central to your family and social life. It goes without saying that you want it to be comfortable, but every bit as important is how it looks. You want your new sofa to reflect your lifestyle and who you are. That’s not asking much… is it?
If you’re a lover of minimalism you might prefer the Modern Simplicity style. Think straight lines and square corners, without a fussy detail in sight. This look particularly suits modern apartments, spacious annexes and first homes. The Skye sofa has a low back, slim arms and on trend metal feet, epitomising modern style. While the beautiful Pia has clean, gently curving lines, subtle buttoning and neat bolster cushions. The Dawn combines minimalist lines with box arms and tapered metal lets, and the Evolve sofa is elegantly simple, and comes in a wide choice of fabric upholstery. For a larger room, the Aria chaise end sofa makes a real impact, upholstered in luxurious velvet in a choice of rich, bold colours. We love its modern box arms and narrow, dark wooden legs.
Whatever look you prefer, the online exclusive sofas in our Now collection have been created for the style conscious who appreciate great value for money too. So, if you want to be sitting beautifully on a new sofa soon, without going over budget, it could be a great place to start looking.
