It’s a major investment, and one you’ll be spending a lot of your downtime on, so a sofa is one piece of furniture you just have to get right. If you’re considering updating yours, we’ve made a list of our favourite sofas to give you some inspiration.

HAY sofas

Velvet Crush

If you want to recline in sumptuous luxury, a velvet sofa should tick all your boxes. The deep emerald green will also create a focal point in your room. Hackney 3 seater sofa from €3075, Hay.

Feet Up

We love the option to stretch our feet out on this stylish curved sofa, yet the compact design means it’s still perfect for small spaces. Lottie Compact Chaise End Sofa around €566, Made.

 

Loaf sofa bed

Tangerine Twist

Inject some permanent zing into your room with this joyful orange sofa bed. Featuring feather-wrapped foam cushions, it also promises to be the comfiest sofa you’ve ever owned. Pudding Sofa Bed around €1812, Loaf.

Rose Tinted

Pink may be on-trend, but this sofa will be a relaxing retreat for years to come thanks to quality details like oak legs, oversized proportions, deep seats and foam-filled cushions. Muuto Compose 3 seat sofa €2990, Finnish Design Shop.

 

 

Ferm sofas

Flip It

Anything that gives you options is a plus in our eyes, and this sofa has a reversible seat cushion, allowing you to change things up should your room need a little refresh. Turn 3 seat wool sofa €2449, Ferm Living.

 

West Elm sofas

Natural Tones

A leather sofa is always a classic look, and the beautiful tone of this one is inspired by traditional horse saddles. A piece that will only get better with age, its top-grain leather will soften over the years, which will beautifully complement its burnished bronze legs. West Elm Axel 226cm Sofa €2899, Arnotts. 

 

Ikea sofas

Danish Design

The product of Ikea’s collaboration with Hay, this sofa oozes Scandi cool without the eye-watering price tag. Its clever design even conceals a pull-out bed, so you’ll always have room for an extra guest or two. Ypperlig 3 seat sofa bed €595, Ikea.
