Looking for quick delivery sofas? Most sofa retailers stopped offering pre-Christmas delivery at the end of October, but you still have options if you need to get your seating sorted before the festivities kick off, if you know where to look.

We've rounded up the best of the fast delivery sofas, including sofas with next-day delivery on offer so you can be sitting pretty in just 24 hours. 

Disrupting the usual long 12-16 week lead times that accompany the traditional made-to-order sofa, these ready-made sofas prioritise ease and convenience, allowing you to opt for (almost) immediate delivery.

Of course, it's not all about express delivery when it comes to investment furniture. Our guides to choosing the best sofas and sofa beds for your home will give you some pointers on what to look out for when sofa shopping so you can nail style, comfort, and speed. 

But, if time is of the essence, here's our round-up of the sofas with the quickest delivery times.
