We decided to go for a large sofa, big enough for 3/4 people and a small sofa, which comfortably seats two.
After much deliberation we plumped for leather again, as its easier to keep clean with a preschooler. I say this whilst hiding felt tips from the little minx!
I purchased them from Sofa Sofa. A friend, had recommended the company to me, as being great value for money, but fantastic quality. I was really, very impressed with the company as a whole. They communicated with me via email, and even gave me a courtesy call, to let me know they had my order. Very impressive. They arrived exactly at the date we had prearranged. I had asked them to delay the delivery slightly as I wasn’t ready for them.
The delivery men were friendly but professional unpacking the sofas, which were wrapped in cloth as well as plastic to protect them, and taking this away with them. They asked me to take my time and check the sofas were to my satisfaction. Such a fantastic experience, I would wholeheartedly recommend them. This is not in any way a sponsored post, as I paid the full retail price for them, I just wanted to share my experience.
I love the sofas, as the are quite vintage looking, with the low slung arms, but classic in shape. They are extremely comfortable (which I was worried about, as I was buying them online) and in a warm but light colour.
I have bought new cushions too. A very subdued collection for me, in golds and teal. The gold cushions were both from Debenhams. The cushion behind, is by Betty Jackson and has a gold thread running through the woven fabric. The second is from John Rocha and is described as gold foil velour.
I have included two teal cushions, a spotty one, that can been seen on the above photograph, of the two seater, from John Lewis. Finally, I have the cushion below, which I actually won in a competition. It’s from Liberty, and is hand painted, and made of slub silk. I love it, I don’t think it is made any longer, but I love that it doesn’t match anything else, makes it even more special.
I do have throws, that we use too for when it gets a little chilly in the evening, but I would love to have some teal ones. They are on my wish list at the moment, I’m open to suggestions, if you happen to see any snuggly ones, please let me know.
So there you have my two new Sofas and cushions. My next post on my living room makeover will be about an piece of funiture, that I have been lucky enough to review from a fantastic company called Fashion for Home. I have included them in a recent I Love Mondays feature.
