Introducing our Spring/Summer ’18 collection
There’s a subtle touch of spring in the air, which means winter is on its way out and we’re heading into the most uplifting time of the year! With fresh flowers, longer days and brighter skies ahead, there’s one more thing we’ve been overly excited about… the arrival of our brand new Spring/Summer 2018 collection! Created exclusively by our sofa.com team, we’re thrilled to be able to finally reveal the beautiful handcrafted pieces now available, including the work we have been doing with five extraordinary designers as part of our Design Lab series. Without further ado, may we introduce you to our Spring/Summer 2018 collection…
The focal point of the home, the place you run to after a long day and the area where your kid’s imagination’s can come alive – the sofa is one of the most important pieces of furniture in your home, so of course, our new collection had to feature a captivating collection of new styles. Meet the new sofas that made the cut this season:
Unique in style, but with plenty of practicality, our Jasper is suited for busy homes and interior lovers alike
Jasper is available as an armchair, two, two and a half, three seat sofa and as three different corner size sofas.
Jasper medium corner sofa in Cyan smart linen (new fabric for SS18!)
With a high, fixed back that would perfectly suit a bright or patterned fabric, Walter would make a striking statement in any room. Equally, its contemporary styled arms and optional castor legs, mean that Walter is just as appealing when upholstered in a more neutral palette for a pared-back look.
Walter is available as an armchair, loveseat, two, two and a half and three seat sofa.
Our Hendrik bed was looking a little lonely, so we’ve taken the same functional detail, including the slatted back and exposed wooden frame, to create a beautifully Scandi-inspired range of minimalistic seating.
Hendrik is available as an armchair, two, two and a half and three seat sofa and as a footstool.
An accent chair has the ability to add a touch of comfort and charm to a room in an instant. Whether you upholster in a bright hue to add a splash of colour, or you want to use it to complement your current decor and add further texture, our range of accent chairs may hold something you are looking for. Take a seat this season on our new occasional chairs:
Taking inspiration from the art deco era of British design, Harper oozes glamour and sophistication with its decadent fluting design.
What Jetson lacks in size, it makes up for with bundles of style and versatility! Ideal as an accent chair for the bedroom, pulled up at your desk in the study or even as a great addition to a hallway.

Parker is our blank canvas of accent chairs. Transform it into the chair that stops people in their tracks with an eye-catching leather or choose a more neutral hue and let the beautiful silhouette do all the talking.
Completely versatile and perfectly suited to both modern and mid-century homes, Minnie is ideal for those who want something generous to sit on and delightful to look at.

Is there a space in your home that’s crying out for something for you to perch on, but you’re not quite sure what kind of sofa should go there, or if it even needs one? Well, Maggie is our mini range, perfect for all those kinds of tricky spots!
Maggie is available as an armchair and as a loveseat.
Whether you’re looking for an armchair to complete your seating selection, something to match your current sofas or just a cosy piece to curl up on – our range of luxurious armchairs have been designed with your complete comfort in mind.
With its attractive high winged back, Duke has a touch of grandeur about it, but as always, it has your total comfort in mind with extra padding in the seat and wing, so an afternoon nap is always on the cards.
If armchairs had a family, our Louis would be the trendy grandson of Duke. With the same high winged back as his grandfather, we’ve given Louis some more refined features and a slightly mid-century twist, with a seat that makes you go ‘ahhh’ and smile as you sit down.
You won’t be losing any sleep in one of our beds, especially in our new French-inspired Emilia design.
The only addition to our bed range this season, but it’s a beautiful one! Emilia has a semi-upholstered, exposed beechwood frame which can be upholstered in over 150 fabrics, making it an elegant and stylish addition to any bedroom.
Emilia is available as single, double, king and as a super king size bed.
Enhancing the look of your home is all in the detail, so here’s a sneak peek at what has been added to the collection this season, with plenty more exciting additions to come soon.
Showcase your passion for pattern this season with a rug from our new collection.

Ola: We discovered Ola’s beautiful patterns and designs last year on some exquisite Christmas crackers and knew we just had to see the designs on our sofas! Created by founder Katy Goutefanga, the two upholstery designs, Victor and Squares, are taken from Ola’s collection and were inspired by a book of traditional Japanese pencil patterns dating back 400 years! Our collaboration with Ola is their first venture into turning their contemporary designs into fabrics, making these designs truly special! Ola’s designs are available as two upholstery designs, Victor and Squares and two cushion designs, Grid and Brushstroke in two colourways Oyster Pink and Waves.
