info House Linen Cotton from £480 £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 £480 £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 £500 £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 £500 £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 £500 £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 £580 £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 £580 £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 £580 £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 £580 £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 £580 £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 £580 £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 £580 £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 £580 £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.

  • Greenfinch Plaid recycled wools

  • Robin Plaid recycled wools

  • Peregrine Plaid recycled wools

info Pure Cotton Matt Velvet from £680 £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 £680 £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 £730 £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 £590 £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 £630 £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.

    Hello Umber,

    Thank you for getting in touch!

    The Long Island is available in leather but with leather it is no longer a loose cover on the frame but fixed.

    If you need any prices for the Long Island in leather, or anything else, please give us a buzz on 0845 400 2222 or e-mail at contact@sofa.com.

    Many thanks,

    Evan

    Hello! Of course - no problem at all.
    A corner unit in pebble is £890 and the large single is £700 so you would be looking at £3880.00!
