Our upholstery buyer, Mark Reynolds, is dedicated to finding stylish, comfortable sofas and chairs at the best prices, from here in the UK and all over the world. As Mark started as a sales consultant on the shop floor, he knows exactly what our customers are looking for.
From cushioned snuggler chairs to the most comfortable sofa bed in the world, here are Mark’s top summer picks.
Upholstered armchairs make great statement pieces for the living room, a large kitchen and even the bedroom. You can see why I’ve chosen the Millport fabric Snuggler chair. It has stylish traditional roll arms, turned front legs and T-shaped cushions, while the seat’s wide enough to sit two. You can have it in linen with velvet scatter cushions or in velvet with floral accents – and you can create that popular Bloomsbury look if you pair it with the Floral Burst wall art and the Zahlia table lamp.
If you like plenty of choices, you’ll appreciate the Seasons collection. The sofas and chairs have clean modern lines and come with classic or pillow backs – and the Foamflex seat interiors have a 5 year guarantee. For all that this range offers, the price is absolutely fantastic. The corner sofa looks good with the Elmari coffee table, part of the very stylish modern designer range from Content by Conran.
As far as fantastic value for money is concerned, I think our customers will love the Alex three seater classic back sofa. It’s roomy, stylish and incredibly luxurious with foam with fibre wrap cushions and sprung seats. If you choose Alex in a neutral shade you can add a splash of colour to your scheme with the Inaluxe Shipping news rug, with its funky abstract pattern. The Earth coffee table is simple and structured with a wooden top and contrasting metal U-shaped legs, and you can even add the coordinating lamp table and sideboard. Add an elegant accent with the star shaped Jax 1 Light pendant ceiling light.
But what I’m most excited about this summer is the Delight sofa bed, because it could quite possibly be the most comfortable sofa bed in the world. Let’s face it – how many sofa beds have a pocket sprung king size Hypnos Kingsclere mattress inside?
You could sleep on it all year round if you wanted, as its comfier than most beds. It can be styled to suit different looks, but I like it with contemporary accessories such as the Mara wool rug and Antique Metal wall clock in a gold finish. And the Velodrome round lamp table can double as a bedside table at night.
