info House Linen Cotton from £845 £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 £845 £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 £945 £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 £945 £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 £945 £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 £1,045 £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 £1,045 £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 £1,045 £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 £1,045 £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 £1,045 £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 £1,045 £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 £1,045 £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 £1,045 £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 £1,095 £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 £1,095 £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 £1,340 £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 £1,250 £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 £1,340 £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.

    Maximus three seat sofa in Sloe 4.7 5 68 68
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in Sloe Lovely Sofa and extremely sturdy. Delivery service were on time and helpful. will use again! 16 April 2012
    Great service from start to finish Verh helpful staff in warehouse/showroom. Phone answered promptly, great having no menus, again helpful staff. Order processed on schedule and delivered promptly - at the promised time! Really appreciate having named delivery staff. 19 November 2013
    Nice fabric & great customer service! Happy with the service, delivery and quality of our sofa! Fabric matched our colours and it looks good in our lounge! Overall however not as comfy as I would have liked; much firmer than it looks in the picture/Internet, and for the price i guess i would have preferred something a bit softer -although hoping this will ease over time and with further use!! 23 October 2013
    Very comfy sofa Excellent sofa, really enjoying using it. It's perfect. However, our delivery was not. The sofa came in two pieces, but even so, the delivery guys seemed to have difficulty getting it in our living room. They damaged the paint work in our hallway doing so. They also scratched our newly sanded, stained and varnished floor when they were putting the sofa together. Very disappointing. It's a shame that such a good product is let down in this way. 07 May 2013
    Beautifully made and wonderfully comfortable! Extremely pleased with my Maximus sofa - I had been looking for a beautiful white sofa for my sitting room for a little while and no matter where I looked I always seemed to come back to the Maximus. I'm so glad I did, - I really adore it! 24 April 2013
    Super large comfy footstool This footstool is big! Brilliantly comfy, fits 2 sets of legs and the puppy can sprawl across it too. Quality is great, we already have sofas from Sofa.com so we knew the footstools we ordered would be perfect - and they are. 11 April 2013
    Very comfortable and the fabric great Excellent service from ordering to the delivery,very helpful and the delivery men were very polite, would recommend this company Many thanks to you all at sofa.com 02 April 2013
    Excellent product, impressive service From the moment we received the fabric swatches, we recognised that Sofa.com was a quality company and we were right. All aspects of the service were fantastic. The first delivery date didn't suit us and it was no trouble to change this. The delivery men arrived bang on time and were incredibly helpful and polite. The sofa itself is fabulous and the only reason for not writing sooner is that the room was not ready for the sofa and so we have only just unwrapped it - we love it. 22 March 2013
    Maximus Loveseat in Herringbone Excellent service. Really comfy sofa. Love it. Thanks 04 December 2012
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in Deep Moss Outstanding in EVERY WAY! Super easy to use website, simple online ordering, courteous follow up ordering personnel, excellent email & telephone communication to advise of delivery date, friendly, respectful delivery drivers who arrived on time & ensured we were completely happy prior to leaving. We felt 'looked after' at every stage. Website feedback by other happy customers entirely justified. I can only hope we have the requirement to deal with your company again in the near future. A joy! Thank you to ALL your team. 17 September 2012
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in Deep Moss I am very happy with the sofa. I also like my house coushions. 18 July 2012
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in Teal Great service and great product - very comfortable and the fabric (with protection treatment) is soft and feels so luxurious. 04 June 2012
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in Herringbone great customer service including very specific time of delivery and update on changes. Product excellent, swatch slightly different from product but was warned of that and happy with product. I will use again. 03 April 2012
    Maximus Large Footstool in Mouse Great footstool 26 March 2012
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in Birch Everything I'd read about Sofa.com in terms of delivery , service and the quality of the product came true, very good service throughout, I love the sofa, colour, size, shape the workmanship etc is wonderful. I did this all via internet as well without seeing it, so was very glad of the generous returns policy - which I've not intention of using! Many thanks Janine 26 March 2012
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in Cookie really helpful staff both in store and with delivery a pleasure to find such a brilliant company - and buying experience 18 March 2012
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in Raspberry Excellent delivery service, arrived within 5 minutes of given time - London to Devon! Drivers polite & helpful. Sofa really nice quality, feel & look. We took a gamble having not tried it first (too far to go to showroom - trusted reviews instead) but even though it is a little firmer than expected we have got used to it now and overall are really pleased with our purchase. Great service, (great chocolate...) & most importantly great sofa! 19 February 2012
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in Peppercorn This is my third sofa from sofa.com, and as always the service and the product were a pleasure. I was impressed by the pleasantness and efficiency of the person who took my order, and the way it was delivered on time. As it had to go through a narrow doorway, I was relieved the Maximus could be taken apart and reassembled. It's incredibly comfortable to lie on - a bit high, and a bit deep for small children to climb onto, which is why I've given it 4 stars not 5. The covers feel lovely. It's given my living room a real lift. 10 February 2012
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in Peppercorn Another great sofa - huge and snuggly! 29 January 2012
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in Charcoal only wish i could afford one of your mattresses.... 09 January 2012
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in White Sand Your delivery men were delightful and it all happened well within the time slot and was finished within 20minutes. Painless and I have ended up with a wonderful sofa. 20 December 2011
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in Natural Flax We travelled all the way down from Hampshire to the showroom, & as soon as we stepped in, I was in awe of the customer service; from the range of drinks we could have, making us feel at home, & primarily appreciative of the journey we had taken! After making payment, I never had to call/email to check on delivery, as the communication standard from Sofa.com was exceptionally high, & we always knew how our order was progressing. The delivery was brilliant - even called to say that they were running late, but still arrived on time! Delivery men were polite & very helpful. I am still SOO impressed with the exceptionally high level of customer service from Sofa.com - it made our sofa buying experience bliss! Thank you! Oh, & our sofa is lush, & SOO comfy! 20 December 2011
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in White Sand I work for the estate agent Douglas & Gordon and always recomend Sofa.com to clients and landlords 21 November 2011
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in Natural Flax Dear sir / madad The service was exceptional UNTIL the delivery guys delivered my bed adn before i could say anything they had taken the plastic covering off and tried to get it up the stairs. I had told them it wouldnt go and that we had to lift it up by ropes over the balcony and through the windows. they didnt listen then when they couldnt get it through the door they got a bit cross. Basically it went up alongside the house with no covers, and hence the sofa got a bit dirty. I have to say i was pretty disappointed. Having say that the rest of the service was very good. 07 October 2011
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in Peppercorn Thank you 18 September 2011
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in Natural Flax We love our maximus sofa and yanna chair and they look great together. After initial dithering over the generous proportions of the maximus we decided to keep it and now absolutely love it. Super comfy and stylish. Showroom staff were very patient about my to-ing and fro-ing over keeping it or changing it. We've definitely made the right choice though. 30 August 2011
    Maximus Three Seat Sofa in Natural Flax excellent products and service 30 August 2011
