SOFA BUYING GUIDE

Shop the perfect sofa

Sofas are often the most central piece in the living room, that’s why we’ve put together this sofa guide to help you choose the perfect style, size and colour for your room.

TOP TIP FROM OUR EXPERT

"When choosing your perfect sofa make sure you consider everything that is important to you and your lifestyle. If your main objective is creating a trend-led statement, perhaps go for one of our bold velvet sofas.

Don’t forget you can introduce colour and texture to neutral styles by adding scatter cushions in different colours and fabrics. You’re likely to be spending a lot of time with your sofa so choose wisely!"

Becka, Buyer at Cult Furniture

SIZE & DIMENSIONS

Whether you have a lot of room to play with or you’re working with a smaller space, the size of your sofa is so important. Find out which style is best for you with our size guide.

ARMCHAIRS

Made for one, armchairs offer the ideal companion to a larger sofa. They don’t take up too much space, so they’re perfect if you want to revive a small room.

LOVESEATS

These two-seaters ensure comfort and style without dominating the room. Also known as snugglers, their size makes them perfect for cuddling up with a loved one.

TWO-SEATER SOFA

Limited with space? A two-seater sofa is the same comfortable design we all want to relax on, just a little smaller. Perfect for couples or styled with a three-seater sofa.

THREE-SEATER SOFAS

The most traditional style of sofa, three-seaters will work for small flats and big living rooms due to the wide range of dimensions they come in. Pair alongside an armchair or a two-seater sofa if you have a large space to work with.

MODULAR SOFAS

Versatile and adjustable, modular sofas offer flexibility with their changeable nature. Adapt them to your needs and personalise how you lounge. This one’s for big families and sociable friends.

CHAISE CORNER SOFAS

Ideal for entertaining, corner sofas can be placed on one side of the room or used to divide an open plan space. They’re available as two and three-seater designs, so the whole family can relax together.

STORAGE SOFAS

The city dweller’s sofa. A smart way to save valuable floor space without sacrificing style or comfort. A storage sofa can make even the smallest of flats a breeze to live in.

SOFA BEDS

This functional option adds flexibility into your living space and offers a comfortable stay for overnight guests. They’re available in different dimensions for big and small rooms.

FOOTSTOOLS

Your sofa’s best friend. Pop at the end of a sofa or armchair and kick your feet up. Footstools add an extra dimension of style, and sometimes storage to your living room.

FABRIC & MATERIALS

When it comes to choosing the right fabric, consider the theme of your space and the conditions that will affect its longevity. Pick velvet for a striking look and leather where accidental spills are likely.

WOVEN FABRIC

Perfect during the cold winter months, as well as during the warmth of summer, a woven fabric sofa is a neutral option.

VELVET

It’s no secret that velvet makes a rather bold statement, so we suggest opting for this kind of sofa if your home is more eclectic than it is child-proof.

LEATHER

Always a classic, leather has a natural durability and it only looks better with age. What we love most about leather sofas? They’re easy to wipe clean.

IT'S ALL IN THE DETAILS

So, what about sofa legs and cushions? These little details can make a big impact on both your sofa and the room in which they occupy. Make sure they match your interior style and keep you cosy with help from our guide.

CUSHIONS

BENCH

Bench cushions mean more people can squeeze on the sofa, making it the perfect option if you’re always entertaining.

LOOSE

Loose cushions allow you to remove the various sections, tuft them up and flip them over, so you can keep them clean very easily.

LEGS

NATURAL WOOD

Natural wooden legs offer durability and work well with neutral sofas and soft tones.

METAL

Opt for metal legs when you want to add a touch of opulence to your sofa.

CARE & MAINTENANCE

We want to make sure you get the most out of your sofa, that’s why we’ve put together these handy tips on how to look after fabric, wood, and leather.
