When you’re on the hunt for a new sofa, it can be difficult to know where to start. When in doubt, I think it’s best to stick to the classics, so I’ve rounded up four traditional bestselling sofas below, all sure to transform your living room in seconds.
18th-century aristocrats loved this sofa shape, and it’s not hard to see why. Featuring rolled arms, a buttoned back and usually upholstered in either butter-soft leather or plush velvet, this beautiful British style is a true sofa classic. On my wishlist is the Darcy, a gorgeous plum style by Arlo & Jacob. I can’t think of anything better than snuggling up on this cosy companion with a cup of tea come colder days.
The Corner Sofa
Ideal for cosy corners, the L-shaped lines of a corner sofa makes it a savvy choice for many living rooms. Not only are these super comfy, they also provide enough space to comfortably cuddle up with one (or more) of your favourite people – the perfect spot to sit and watch a film or catch up with friends as the nights draw in.
The Cocktail Sofa
Undeniably glamorous, I would compliment my velvet cocktail sofa with a vintage drinks trolley and a cocktail of course! The perfect place to entertain friends, this utterly extravagant design features a pleated back and sleek wooden legs – slick on some red lipstick and recline in style on this retro beauty.
The Traditional Sofa
Nothing beats a truly traditional sofa when it comes to relaxing on lazy days. Choose wide seats, deep, feather-filled cushions and wooden legs and you can’t go wrong. Not only will a classic sofa shape look elegant in a number of different upholsteries and colours, it will also please everyone. Little ones and grown-ups alike can’t resist the comfy cushions and somewhere cosy to rest their head after a long day.
