How do you use your Living Room?

Everyone's Living Rooms are hives of activity.

The Living Room – A space with many names.  

Whether you call it your lounge, sitting room, drawing room or reception, this space - at its heart – is a room for living. Whether you’re flying solo, spending time with loved ones or playing host to a large group of friends; it’s a place where lasting memories are made. That’s why the living room needs to be a space fit for wine drinking, coffee slurping, game playing, binge-watching and sofa snuggling, amongst so many other things. So, planning you're living room the right way is hugely important and what better place to start than with the main attraction?

The Sofa.

By far the most important element of any living space.

When styling your living room, we recommend choosing your sofa first and planning your room around it, eg. wall colour, soft furnishings and accessories. A sofa is one of the most expensive items you’ll place in your lounge, it’s also the main point of all interaction within the space. 

Now, when it comes to choosing a sofa it can get a little overwhelming because let’s face it everyone wants a sofa that looks good, but we also need to think about versatility. There has to be enough room for everyone, will it be covered in the dogs (or cats) hair in under 60 seconds and what happens if there are sticky fingers?!

With this in mind, it’s time to browse all the different sofa varieties we have to offer, from spacious corners to pet-friendly upholstery, we’ll find something that fits your every need.

The Penthouse

A cool club style sofa with traditional hand tufted button detailing, slim modern arms and chic metallic feet, means this sofa is chock full of style! It’s comfy, cool and practical. With its all leather option, the fear of mucky fingerprints and dirty paws can be a distant memory, as most leather sofas can now be wiped down using a damp cloth. If you’re ever in need of more intensive cleaning methods, however, ask a member of our sales staff for further advice. For extra cosiness why not try the Penthouses’ fabric and leather option, you can add a touch of texture and warmth to your living space with tonal grey upholstery.

The Panache 

Named aptly due to its rich luxurious velvet upholstery, the Panache is available in midnight blue and bottle green velvet. Both colour options showcase a stunning fabric most people wouldn’t think particularly practical, but they’d be wrong. Velvet upholstery can be quite practical when it comes to pet hair, due to its manufacturing the velvet weave doesn’t allow for hairs to become stuck within it. Therefore, there’ll be no pesky wirehairs that just won’t brush off! Unfortunately, like any fabric sofa, stains & dirt is a little harder to remove, again we’d suggest discussing cleaning methods with our sales team.

The Beckton

With its plump pillow back design and large deep seats, this chaise sofa was made with comfort in mind. The Beckton is the ideal choice for someone who needs space but doesn’t want to compromise on style. Its super soft velvet grey upholstery paired with geometric patterns and silver scatters gives this sofa a chic, yet fun vibe. Perfect for family movie nights, snuggling with the other half or just putting your feet up with a glass of wine!
