Understanding the space

Make the most of your visit and come prepared. Take photos and a short video clip of your room, as well as total room measurements, to really give us a sense of your space. The doors, windows, TV etc in a room can be a big factor in choosing the right spot for your sofa.

The trade-off between the function of a sofa bed and the comfort of a sofa has thankfully been left in the past. We have a much better solution — Italian leather or family-friendly fabric on a deeply comfortable sofa that can open into a practical mattress. Our sofa beds feature adjustable headrests that offer soothing head support, and they have a storage area for pillows and duvets. The sofa bed can be easily opened by one person in moments — so you’ve more time to relax!

Materials

Natural leather showcases all the typical imperfections of the hide, such as blemishes, scarring, marks and wrinkles. It's supple, elegant, and ages beautifully.

This 100% protected leather sofa helps correct the imperfections of natural leather products and guard against daily family stains. It can be maintained by wiping down with a warm, clean damp cloth.

Fabric sofas are really comfortable, and feel soft, warm and cosy — perfect to curl up on, especially in winter! And there’s a vast range of colours and materials to choose from.

Thanks to innovative upholstery technologies such as Aquaclean, we have a huge choice of brightly coloured sofas that are much easier to keep clean. Small stains such as wine, coffee, food and even most marker pens are no longer a disaster!

Plush velvet is a wonderfully soft material with a super delicate texture. The rub rate of the fabric is over 100,000, which means it exceeds the requirements for both domestic and contract upholstery. It repels liquid, making it super easy to clean — so our wide range of available colours stay vibrant.
