Shopping for a sofa? We pick our favourites... 

BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL
The compact design of the retro 'Pendel' sofa by designer Russell Pinch makes it an ideal choice for smaller rooms but its eye-catching pattern means it won't fade into the background. Get this great statement piece for £1,980.

LUXURIOUS LEATHER
The chocolate brown art deco style ‘Romeo’ sofa from John Lewis is perfect for those who want the glamour and vintage-feel of a leather sofa but have limited space. It’s also a bit of a steal at £599.

THING OF THE PAST
Be the proud owner of a piece of British history with this reupholstered Victorian sofa from Blighty Antiques. We love the low back and intricate carvings on the mahogany frame. It costs £1,850.00.

OH SO VERSATILE 
‘Patchwork’ is a natty piece of furniture: each part can be detached and moved to create more or less space – perfect for sprawling out or cuddling up. It costs upwards of £3,155.
