7 on-trend sofa styles – revealed

It’s very rare you go into somebody else’s house and they have exactly the same sofa; in the same colour, fabric, size and everything, as you. While this type of thing may happen in the outfit stakes, it’s virtually unheard of within the sofa world.



That’s because there are so many different types of sofa out there – there are literally hundreds-upon-hundreds of sofa shapes and sofa styles to choose from! 



Intrigued about what some of those different types of sofa are? We thought you might be, so we’ve listed 7 of them for you to take a look at down below:



Sofa style 1: Scatter back sofas


You can’t beat a good scatter back sofa with its voluptuous cushions that can be plumped up as much or as little as you like! This sofa style is easy to spot, thanks to the several large cushions that run along the back, looking as comfy as ever. Let yourself sink into the cushions and prepare to be all snuggled up in no time at all.

Sofa style 2: Recliner sofas


Ahhh, recliner sofas, the ultimate luxury provider. A quick flick of your legs or a switch is all it takes to be in full relaxing mode. While most of us are familiar with recliner armchairs, not everybody realises you can get recliner sofas too. Chilling in front of the TV doesn’t get much better than this, the trick is making sure you don’t nod off (unless you want to, that is!)

Sofa style 5: Chesterfield sofas


As classic as they are grand, the Chesterfield is a timeless sofa style that’ll never go out of fashion. These days, you’ll find that leather Chesterfield sofas are most commonly associated with this iconic sofa design, but it’s also possible to get fabric variations too. Either way, you’ll still have that deep button detailing and low seat base and arms statue to admire and enjoy.

Sofa style 6: Leather sofas 


Highly functional and equally stylish, leather sofas aren’t pet hair magnets and are really easy to wipe down if you spill something on them. But the best thing about them is they’re a statement piece of furniture, that are easy to maintain, thanks to special leather care cover and cleaning kits that we can provide you with.
