info House Linen Cotton from £495 £0
This excellent fabric is made from 50% cotton and 50% linen. It looks great in any environment, is hardwearing, and will last for years. It also has the advantage of being fantastic value. Most importantly it's a very beautiful fabric that has real understated style. Available in Cookie or herringbone.
  • cookie house linen cotton

  • herringbone house linen cotton

info House Viscose Linen from £495 £0
This is a most clever fabric. A fabulous blend of viscose and linen, which is both lustrous and soft (the viscose bit) as well as lovely and lineny (the linen bit). The yarn has been dyed in such a way so as to create a beautifully contrasted, asymmetrical and subtle pattern..
  • Rock house viscose linen

  • Rose house viscose linen

  • Denim house viscose linen

  • Savory house viscose linen

info Nomad Stripes from £525 £0
Bursting on to the scene with some bright, summery stripes, this fabric is a guaranteed hit for any dedicated followers of fashion. Indigo is 2013's top interiors trend, whilst clashing pink and orange are a match made in colour-block heaven. These stripes are a combination of linen and viscose, making them softer than a nomad's saddle and damn smart when upholstered.
  • Indigo nomad stripes

  • Summer nomad stripes

info Brushed Linen Cotton from £525 £0
We chose this fabric for a very simple reason: it's one of the most beautiful upholstery fabrics that money can buy. The fabric has a wonderful soft feel, and is genuinely luxurious. When sold on the high street this fabric commands a price of £32 per metre (and you usually need 16metres of fabric for a three seat sofa) which will give you some idea of how reasonable our prices are.

info Coloured Herringbone from £525 £0
We developed these fabrics with our mill in Belgium because we love linen and we love Herringbone, and the best linen herringboners on the planet are our mussel munching chums from Belgium. We love the colours – they work brilliantly together and they represent idiotically good value. What natural fabrics give you is personality – slight slubs and tiny inconsistencies that add a depth and make every piece that tiny bit different. Pretentious but true!
  • Cardinal coloured herringbone

  • Egret coloured herringbone

  • Gull coloured herringbone

  • Pigeon coloured herringbone

  • Starling coloured herringbone

info Crushed Florentine Velvet from £555 £0
Crushed Florentine velvet: need we say more? Well why not. It is woven in what we consider to be Italy's best velvet mill, just outside Florence. This velvet is luxurious, has a wonderful crushed texture and is phenomenally hard wearing and durable,
  • truffle crushed florentine velvet

  • azure crushed florentine velvet

  • Cloud crushed florentine velvet

  • Storm crushed florentine velvet

  • Honeycomb crushed florentine velvet

info Soft Textured Linen from £555 £0
This soft textured linen is exactly that. It has a wonderful feel and softness to it, and it has been dyed in such a way as to create a subtle and very attractive mottled colour effect. It is different from our other fabrics in as much as whilst it is still a "plain" is has more depth and texture to it. We love it.
  • hemp soft textured linen

  • chestnut soft textured linen

  • teal soft textured linen

info Pure Belgian Linen from £555 £0
They may not be they most fashionable nation on earth, but the Belgians do make the finest linen. We are seriously proud to sell this linen, it is made and finished to the very highest standard possible, and we can testify to that having traipsed around a large number of linen mills. The colours are beautifully subtle, the fabric soft and elegant - top linen!
  • duck egg pure belgian linen

  • natural flax pure belgian linen

  • peppercorn pure belgian linen

  • thistle pure belgian linen

  • white sand pure belgian linen

info Broad Weave Linen from £555 £0
We found this fabric in a Belgian mill, and knew straight off that it had made the cut onto the sofa.com list. It is sold only in one other place in the UK and there sells for over £100 per metre; ridiculous obviously, but nevertheless it gives a good idea of how highly they prize the fabric. It has texture, weight, softness and subtlety, and really is a fine fabric with which to cover your sofa.
  • moccha broad weave linen

  • undyed broad weave linen

info Corduroy from £555 £0
Corduroy seems so impossibly English doesn't it, so it is a surprise to note that it originates from those stylish Frenchies, originally as Cord Du Roi (the king's cloth). We have this one made in Italy though - it is embarrassingly soft and luxurious.
  • mouse corduroy

info Soft Wool from £555 £0
Soft wool. Or put another way Felt. This fabric is devastatingly cool and chic, but don't be shy - you can do it - you're up to it - you can pull it off. The truth is that, in contrast to most wools, it is beautifully soft and an absolute pleasure to live with. Unlike all our other fabrics this has not been woven, but has been created by ingeniously pressing dyed wool.
  • Granite soft wool

  • Ash soft wool

  • Turf soft wool

  • Pebble soft wool

  • Sky soft wool

info Highland Tweed from £555 £0
The Highlands we refer to here are those renowned Highlands of Northern Belgium, where we have worked for many years with one of the oldest and most civilised mills. Woven from linen, viscose and cotton this “tweed” has real depth, character, and a subtlety of contrast, that made us immediately think of the other Highlands, where the boys wear skirts.
  • Heath highland tweed

  • Slate highland tweed

  • Radish highland tweed

  • Hyacinth highland tweed

  • Grey Marl highland tweed

info Recycled Wools from £555 £0
This is a fabric with a conscience. 50% of it is recycled wool from Prato in Italy, where 22,000 tonnes of textiles are recycled every year in a bid to put Giorgio's old jumpers to good use and become certified carbon neutral (which it is). We've just added in a bit of man-made softness to make it comfy, and long-lasting. The overall effect is a beautifully rich-textured fabric, that is wonderfully versatile - it's available in plains, plaids, stripes and herringbone.

info Pure Cotton Matt Velvet from £585 £0
The world of velvet has many impostors, but this is not one. This velvet, made from 100% cotton, has a matt finish, and is soft and luxurious. Elsewhere this fabric costs about £52 per metre (you usually need 16 metres of fabric for a three seat sofa) so if you've got a penchant for velvet (like us) there's really no sane alternative to buying a sofa.com velvet sofa.

info Dexter's Linen from £585 £0
TinTin? Dull. Dexter? Now here you have an all Belgian superhero: suave, debonair, fifth generation maker of the world’s most luxurious linens, and our new best friend. Dexter’s linens are a cut above – heavyweight, stonewashed and thickly woven from the very best flax. You’ll pay more for this linen but you'll be not be disappointed. We've gone to town on it and it is quite exceptional.

  • Almond dexter's linen

  • Walnut dexter's linen

  • Pistachio dexter's linen

  • Nougat dexter's linen

  • Hazelnut dexter's linen

  • Amarena dexter's linen

info Roosevelt Velvet from £640 £0
Teddy Roosevelt - nice cuddly soft teddy bears - yes, the name is a bit tenuous and silly, but you get the message - this exceptionally deep pile, decadent velvet is comforting like a mother's warm embrace...or perhaps your old teddy. Not for everybody, we accept, this blingtastic fabric is our most expensive - it would cost well in excess of £120 retail, but we buy in considerable bulk to make it affordable.
  • Hudson roosevelt velvet

  • Ganges roosevelt velvet

  • Baltic roosevelt velvet

info Navajo Stripes from £630 £0
Despite its name, this beautiful fabric is not woven in the mid-west of America, but the mid-west of Italy – Florence. The fabric has serious weight and depth behind the stripes, which’ let’s face it, are a bold statement. A very decadent, sophisticated fabric this one.
  • coyote navajo stripes

  • lizard navajo stripes

info Mohawk from £640 £0
Woven in a mill that overlooks the domes of Florence, as opposed to the cactii of Nevada, as its name might suggest. A big, brazen, strong zig-zag stripe, on a completely natural, super soft fabric, this fabric has a real subtlety and depth. Works brilliantly on smaller sofas and chairs; needs a braver heart for the bigger stuff. We love it.

    the armchair

    Jethou is small, neat and very cosy, much like the beautiful island after which it is named. Sometimes a chair just gives an indefinable sense of loveliness. You feel good in it, it makes your life a better one, problems slip away, storms abate, world peace resumes (that’ll do), it just clicks. Jethou is one of these rare numbers. Well worth embracing.

    Reviews Questions & Answers
    Jethou armchair in Cookie 4.8 5 18 19
    Jethou Armchair in Cookie Our only problem was that it was delivered with the legs on - we had been told the legs were removable and they seem not to be - so we have not been able to get the chair upstairs - we are waiting for some strong friends to come round and help us hoist it through an upstairs window... otherwise it seems great! beautiful and soft fabric. 09 June 2012
    Love it! My feature sofa! I am delighted! I love the colour, the fabric, the legs, the height of the back, the fact there are no loose cushions to plump or throw around, love the vibrancy of my lovely velvet scatter cushions. It is fully upholstered so it is a firm seat and therefore it is not as comfortable as a feather filled sofa but I this is precisely what I wanted. Yes, I was nervous about ordering on-line and never even sitting on the sofa first - but I was reassured about the returns policy and I have now ordered my second sofa. 20 March 2014
    Comfy chair, perfect for the nursery and those early morning feeds with a newborn Great chair, like the fabric, had wanted a very bright purple so was disappointed with the shade of 'sloe' when it arrived in my sample pack, but this grey was an ideal back up. Service was good, although 2 small things, 1) the systems never seemed to have the most up to date info on them, so I had to check twice the order details were correct. (Paperwork was wrong, system right), and 2) when someone rang to take final payment, they confirmed the delivery times, but for the wrong hour. All my paperwork, and the actual delivery was for 3pm, she was adamant it was showing as 2pm....These are only small things, otherwise I would highly recommend sofa.com 10 March 2014
    We love this armchair! We bought this chair for the nursery and it is fantastic! One comment would be that the choice of blue/green/duck egg type colours was limited, however, the Lagoon Blue has worked well. 05 March 2014
    I am very happy with my purchase and the customer service from Sofa.com is second to none! Buying from Sofa.com is a really good experience. I would recommend visiting their lovely store at Chelsea Wharf where you can wander around with no pressure from sales people and the free refreshments were just what was needed on a cold December day. The after sales service is excellent, being kept informed of the progress of my purchase via e-mail was easy and my chair was delivered right on time. I will definitely return to buy again. 09 January 2014
    Excellent from showroom to living room From fantastic service at the London showroom, great communication about order and delivery through to great service when delivered including all the packaging removed our purchase from sofa.com was superb. We would definitely recommend sofa.com 15 October 2013
    I rarely rate things as excellent but.... I had a particular armchair in mind that had to be made in custom fabric. It was a big decision because white expensive but Rhys was really patient and easy to work with both in store and over email. The whole process was really straight forward and we're really pleased with the finished product. So far so good! 19 August 2013
    Highly recommended Terrific service, wide range of choice and overall a company that is hugely enjoyable to deal with. 05 August 2013
    Brilliant chair! It fulfills admirably the criteria my husband set for it; that he could fall asleep in it. 23 May 2013
    Fits in perfectly with my decor Thank for a pleasant shopping experience with your company 03 April 2013
    The poduct is high quality Good fabric, very comfortable, briliant delivery service. 05 March 2013
    very comfortable and stylish chair I really like my new chair, it's very comfortable and looks quite stylish. Service was very good and delivery prompt within the hour, and knowledgeable (they managed to maneuver the chair through 2 quite narrow doors in my entryway). The only thing I'd say is that the seams in some places are not completely straight / neat, but it's really minor. 25 February 2013
    Overall mostly excellent but a couple of niggles The chair is fantastically comfortable to sit in for hours at a time, and we were able to choose just the right fabric for us and our home. The style is not too old fashioned and not too modern, so just right for most homes. One or two of the legs were a little squint but we were able to straighten them up so that you can't notice. Other than this we are very happy 11 February 2013
    Jethou Armchair in Flint Delivered on time, beautifully packed, service in store excellent including great coffee. Our only comment is that the upholstery finish needs attention at the head of the chair - slightly clumsy looking pleating, but we are otherwise extremely happy with the items. 13 December 2012
