Iggy Two Seat Sofa in raspberry Brushed Linen Cotton by Anne on Saturday, 31st August 2013
I visited the showroom to try out the sofa before I bought. The showroom personnel were very friendly and helpful, especially regarding delivery times and waits. The order process was easy and flawless as was delivery. I am very happy and would use sofa.com again.

Bluebell Three Seat Sofa in Thyme by Dellamarie on Sunday, 21st July 2013
I bought the sofa ('thyme' was a guess- light green) and a red armchair. I love them both. Comfy, attractive, just properly squishy, they look 'lived in' enough to be approachable, yet not saggy. Couch is comfy enough to sleep on, perchance to dream. Workmanship splendid. Great linen/cotton fabric- spilled nacho cheese came right off. Only drawback is that I wish they came with those little matching arm covers. Maybe I'll buy fabric from you and make some. I love them, my son loves them, my visitors love them, and I recommend you to everybody.

tips on furniture arranging: living room

Arranging furniture may seem simple on the surface. But when it comes down to the point where you’ve moved your sofa from one side of the room to the other 10+ times, you come to realize that planning ahead would save you the time, energy, and stress of filling empty space.

Here are some of our go-to guidelines depending on which type of room you’re furnishing:

If it’s a: Long room

Pair armchairs, facing each other, with the sofa to balance the weight and provide extra seating. Place side tables on both sides on the sofa, and create a “landing” area towards the entrance of the room for coats, shoes, keys, etc.

If it’s a: Centered fireplace

Fireplaces, while cozy and charming, can cause an extra troubleshooting spot in the room. Place all seating (sofas and armchairs) in a “floating” position – meaning, not against the walls but rather, in front of the fireplace, facing at a 90 degree angle from it. Use a coffee table and rug centered in the middle of the seating area and fill the perimeter of the walls with storage cabinets and additional seating.

If it’s a: Small room

Focus on one key piece of furniture such as small sofa (like our Jethou Sofa) and “accessorize” liberally with plenty of pillows and a throw blanket. Use geometric textiles and clear, glass surfaces in the room to provide depth and reflection.

Give sofas breathing room. 

Placing larger furniture, like your sofa, even a couple of inches off the wall, will actually make the room feel more spacious or airy.

Keep it bright. 

Lighting is vital – spread different lighting sources out across the room evenly and keep it balanced by focusing on all corners of the room.

Mix and match

Don’t worry too much about symmetry and think instead about balance. Balance can mean one large sofa balanced by two armchairs across a coffee table or an incorporation of varied textures and fabrics.
