This is currently a personal favourite. The Grammercy Moon Grey Sofa features family friendly fabric in this Bennett Moon, or Matte Black. Clean simple lines makes this choice a flexible style. With the black Iron base it keeps it casual and chic!

Tips for buying a sofa

1. Hardwood construction is key. Ensure it’s made with kiln-dried oak, beech or ash are long lasting options.

2. Invest in good quality fillings. A common cushion filling is Polyurethane foam. It’s durable and easy to care for. Be selective with your choice: Foam that is too dense can feel hard and uncomfortable. and foam that is too soft can deteriorate quickly with everyday use. For the cream of the crop the best choice is high-resilient foam wrapped in a down feather combo. It’s long lasting and worth every penny.

3. Choose durable fabrics. Sofas in Cotton or Linen fabric, and Leather sofas are a popular upholstery materials that are worth investing in. Synthetic materials like microfibre are also a great choice and long lasting. A fabric with a small-scale pattern or woven texture are great for hiding dirt AKA kid friendly! Yay! Think about your lifestyle, do you have kids, pets? Then choose a fabric that will work for you.

4. Size matters! Make sure to measure twice! I always measure the doorways and hallways as well. This will be a big investment. Make sure not only it will get through the door but it will fit and look good in your space.

There you have it! Hope you enjoyed and this helps you choose what works for you and your lifestyle. I had a lot of fun hanging out and sourcing for you!
