info House Linen Cotton from £1,095 £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 £1,095 £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 £1,145 £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 £1,145 £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 £1,145 £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 £1,245 £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 £1,245 £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 £1,245 £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 £1,245 £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 £1,245 £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 £1,245 £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 £1,245 £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 £1,245 £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 £1,345 £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 £1,345 £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.

  • Pistachio dexter's linen

  • Amarena dexter's linen

info Roosevelt Velvet from £1,520 £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 £1,430 £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 £1,520 £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.
  • Boulder mohawk

info House Leather from £1,620 £0
In official terms, our house leather is semi-aniline and full grain; put simply, this means it's a real pleasure to live with. It's supple, beautiful and hardwearing - which is the whole point of leather. No, our leather sofas don't cost £500, but then again our leather isn't coarse, it doesn't stiffen up and crack and it doesn't leave nasty dye all over your clothes.
  • Chocolate house leather

  • Matt Black house leather

info Devon Leather from £2,100 £0
Our Devon leather is a natural beauty: as organic and undulating as the hills and fields of its namesake. A fully aniline leather made from the best bits of the hide, it is largely untreated and coloured only with dye, so that it keeps its unique surface characteristics. Consider this leather as you would a fine wine: it will get better with age and give you years of pleasure.
  • Lava devon leather

  • Parchment devon leather

info Rodeo Leather from £2,230 £0
Technically-speaking, our Rodeo is an aniline leather, which means it’s really natural and is made using the best bits of the hide. This leather is the cream of the crop: it has a waxy feel and is genuinely luxurious. Due to its natural characteristics and the fact that it hasn’t been mucked about with, this leather will be admired as a thing of beauty by everyone that sets eyes upon it.

    We think that the Salute is a really neat little design. The slim, clean piping lends an elegant and more traditional feel to what is ostensibly a contemporary shape. If the chrome legs don’t suit, it is also available with a range of wooden legs. And, as ever with sofa.com, it’s problematically comfy.

    Salute three seat in Sloe 4.9 5 22 23
    Amazing statement piece! Every aspect of our order...from customer service.. to the delivery team.. to the fabulous quality of our sofa was perfect.. All our friends love it...some are a little envious!! We have already ordered our new Kilkenny Chair as we were so impressed with our sofas.. Thank you sofa.com! 28 March 2013
    The feel good sofa! When I started looking at sofas I was looking at ones in DFS for £800 and thinking "That's a lot of money." In the end I've spent over twice that on my sofa.com sofa, but I'm very happy about it, and here's why: * You can choose your own fabric! For some reason all the other major sofa retailers only have 1 or 2 nice designs of sofa, and the only colours they're available in are "seaweed" and "dog vomit". Here you can choose what you like. * The sofa is nice. One of many contributing factors to my happiness. * The company has good moral values. The wood is FSC certified and they offset their carbon emissions. You have no idea how much better this makes you feel when you lie down on this thing. (Sitting isn't my style.) * The people are nice. From the very cute girl in the store who gave me a cup of tea to the 2 delivery men who brought it in and set it up. They were lovely, which always leads me to believe that they are looked after by the company. * If you don't like it you can send it back, at no cost to you. This made the whole buying process much more enjoyable. I looked forward to my sofa arriving, safe in the knowledge that if I had mis-measured my living room then I could just send it back. So overall this thing feels so much better to lie on because I feel good about where my money went. The bad bits... these are very minor, but worth mentioning. * The chrome legs have rather small feet. These mean that they are likely to destroy your wooden floorboards. I've put felts on the bottom of mine, but even that may not suffice. Sofa.com people, if you're reading, make the plastic feet bigger! * The fabric is quite difficult to brush marks out of. It's the kind of fabric where you can see where you've brushed it in different directions. I don't spend a lot of time brushing my sofa, but when things rub against it it can be quite hard to brush the marks out. I'm being picky here though. * The arm and back cushions are quite malleable, rather than bouncy. If you squash them then they kind of stay squashed. This doesn't detract from the comfort at all, and it fits the style of the sofa. I'm just not sure how they will fare over time. Will they become saggy? Overall I would definitely buy another one. If I had another house. 08 April 2014
    Sofa.com has got it right again! We love the chairs & the Long Island complete sofa which we ordered previously. The style, quality & service have all been excellent - even down to the most efficient delivery service that I have come across. The leather upholstery on the chairs is of the best quality & beautifully soft. They look better than products we have seen at considerably higher prices. I would unreservedly recommend Sofa.com as the supplier of choice of stylish, high-quality furniture. 18 March 2014
    Superb from start to finish! Buying process was great Delivery was great Sofa is great Genuinely impressed with the whole experience – did cost a bit more than sofas from the big chains, but the quality is streets ahead compared to other sofas we saw. 10 March 2014
    Wonderful Sofa We have quite a tight staircase in our apartment block, and we were left sofa-less when we ordered one from another company and it wouldn't fit up the stairs. Sofa.com was recommended by a friend, but we were so busy with work we couldn't make it to the showroom in London. We decided to take a gamble and ordered the salute, which looked like the best fit for our place. When the day of delivery came around we were a little apprehensive, having never tried it out,or seen it in real life, but we needn't have worried - it's fabulous. We really are in love with our new sofa! The quality is outstanding and the delivery guys were brilliant. The extra treats for ordering in January were a lovely touch too. Highly recommended! 07 March 2014
    Beautiful fabric Love my new sofa. We changed the metal legs on the sofa to wood and they look great. Excellent service all round from Sofa.com 08 January 2014
    Fantastic service and product! Thank you to everyone at Sofa.com for amazing service (showroom and delivery) and a product that is wonderful - I am a very happy customer. 08 January 2014
    Fantastic product, super comfy and looks great. Great process from start to finish. Really friendly and helpful sales staff at the showroom and a good opportunity to see all styles and fabrics. Have already recommended. The sofa looks good and is super comfy - big enough to seat three easily and perfect for two to cuddle up on. 16 December 2013
    Exactly what I was after I order the midnight blue sofa and was delighted with what was delivered. The sofa is large (3 seater) and has already become the centre of attention when I have guests. Cushions haven't slipped away from under us which is the one thing I hate. Really comfy and worth the money. 02 December 2013
    Sofa.com 10 out of 10 What a service! 10 out of 10 in all respects. No hard sell and it was a pleasure visiting the showrooms, so refreshing. The two sofas were just what we wanted and the quality is fantastic , they look great in our lounge. We had just had a delivery from an oak furniture company before our sofas were delivered, which was a nightmare (Heath & Safety gone mad) No such problems with our sofa delivery, it was a pleasure! 28 November 2013
    Excellent product and excellent service-I absolutely love your company-others could learn so much! The two sofas are very well made and excellent value for money. I also bought a Stella corner sofa some time ago and it has been a joy to sit on. Only tiny tiny complaint is that the two cushions which came as standard with the Margot are a bit floppy? They need stuffing a bit more. Th staff in the showroom were fabulous and the whole experience adds to a lovely day out in London. Your competitors in my book don't even come close and I will always buy future sofas from you! 08 October 2013
    Love the fabric and colour! Brilliant sofa, beautifully made and really comfortable. 08 October 2013
    Look good but not that successful. To be honest, not as successful as the Leon corner sofa we have in our kitchen which we love. We find the seats very deep and the bottom cushions constantly slip out and have to be shoved back in. We are considering velcro... On the plus side, they look good. Wooden feet work well - we didn't want the metal feet, we couldn't see any pictures with wooden feet so we were concerned how they would look but needn't have been. Chocolate smeared on the cream linen within days also came off easily (notwithstanding minor panic attack). 26 June 2013
    Brilliant! We have lots of new stuff but the sofa is my favourite... Our sofa.com experience was brilliant from start to finish! 05 June 2013
    The salute in herringbone house linen 2 and half seater and chair Easy to order, very helpful customer service came in the time frame stated, delivery men polite and on time. I spent along time looking for the perfect sofa and always came back to sofa.com for insperation. I had no time to travel down to the showroom so was a bit nervous buying on line but decided to give them a go, I am pleased to say im very happy i did as amazing product and will defo order again. 30 May 2013
    Great sofa I ordered the Salute and I'm really happy with it. Its very comfortable and feel even more comfortable with the price paid - its real value for money and would certainly buy from them again. 12 March 2013
    Best sofa I have ever owned I recently received my sofa and it really is the most comfortable thing I own. There is nothing nicer than being able to fit three humans and two cats on it and still have space. I chose to have it upholstered in a light coloured wool, which feels extremely luxurious. I would recommend it. 05 March 2013
    Quality Sofa, feels like it will last years really great sofa, looks and feels like it was twice the price. 05 March 2013
    Excellent! I visited the showroom twice and the staff were very helpful and I liked the overall feel of the place, being offered water etc. I thought the little thank you for the business touch of chocolate and brandy was very nice - seems like a personally run business rather than a chain. 27 February 2013
    brilliant - from start to sitting! 2nd sofa we have purchased from these guys - very happy. quality throughout the service and the sofa itself is excellent. Thank you 24 February 2013
    Excellent service from start to comfy finish I jusam delighted to say just how impressed we have been with the service received from ‘The Comfy team’. From the very first visit to your showroom, to ordering on line (great website tools to allow you to see and instantly change/compare the actual colour and size of your choice), to being kept updated throughout the build of the sofa and right through to the prompt delivery at the specified time! It really has been a master class in how to achieve the highest customer satisfaction rating. Needless to say we are delighted with the Sofa and would have no hesitation in recommending your company. 11 February 2013
    This sofa is my pride and joy We have the sofa since 2 weeks. It is a little bigger than I expected, and it is quite high too with the wooden legs we chose but ok for us tall people. However, a choise in hights might be something to consider? I.e. 2 inch or 4 inch block legs. The fabric is lovely, a nice and very soft feel and beautiful colour, I am just not sure how it will keep in the future. The cussions need puffing up weekly which ends in a punching session, good for a little arm workout! The overall quality is outstanding and the service from Sofa.com was absolutely spot on. A really enjoyable experience that other companies could use as a good example of fab customer service. 11 February 2013
