Brimming with curvaceous shapes, elegant detailing and sumptuous textures, sofa.com has just unveiled its new furniture collection - and with it the key pieces to snap up for a cool and comfortable space.
We love the collection’s sense of indulgence and luxury, which can be peppered throughout your home. Now, more than ever, the importance of home is undisputed. Somewhere to escape from the world and relax is top priority for most of us.
It’s not enough though for our homes to just look good - they need to feel good too. The furniture we choose has to provide style, comfort and flexibility.
That’s where this collection comes to the fore. It takes its lead from the top trends for cool cocooning, beguilingly curved shapes and tantalising textures, combined with those all-important hidden ergonomics and flexibility of form.
This is laid-back luxe for those who like their homes to be cool - and comfortable.
These key pieces allow you to elevate your interior for a home that encourages indulgent guilt-free me-time, whilst remaining on-trend and elegant.
There's an abundance of curvalicious silhouettes and snuggly fabrics - cool cocooning is hot right now. After all, who wants sharp edges and hard surfaces when you can have rounded, enveloping shapes and sink-into softness?
Stylish and sumptuous, Cohen is a modular sofa with curved lumbar support. Its feather seat cushions offer total indulgence, yet its different configurations provide maximum flexibility.
Two pieces will create a casual chaise, three pieces and it’s a family sofa; add a fourth and you have a luxurious corner unit complete with footstool that’s ideal for a movie night or entertaining a crowd.
Super-snug and trend-led, this voluptuous Ginger occasional chair hugs you as you sit, with its rounded design and soft, padded upholstery. So much so that you - or your guests - may not want to leave.
Make a style statement with this over-sized, dual-purpose pouffe that serves as a coffee table or a footstool. Designed to be used as a pair or apart, the Luna collection has curves in all the right places and is ideal for flexible living.
This decadent double storage bed will envelope you as you hunker down to sleep, with its soft and sumptuous silhouette. It’s not all curves and comfort though - the practicalities have been thoroughly thought through.
Sunday features four concealed drawers offering plenty of storage space, which have been cleverly designed to still allow for a bedside table on each side of the bed.
Slats, ridges, flutes, grooves, panels and inlays, anything but flat plain surfaces is in. Coupled with natural materials and the inherent beauty of timber, wool and glass and you've a match made in trend heaven.
Be tempted by Ravello or Florence. These beautiful wooden beds are a first for sofa.com and will bring boutique hotel luxe to your bedroom with their wooden headboards and asymmetric paneling detailing.
We love the oversized nature of Florence's headboard, which makes a suitably stylish backdrop to place your bedside tables either side. The textured finish is bang on trend too.
There’s even an adjustable headboard cushion, Verona, which can be draped over any headboard and positioned at the right height for you, to enjoy lazy lie-ins and breakfast in bed. Choose from a selection of 100 different fabrics to style things your way.
For smart and stylish storage, the Turin oak bedside table has a cutaway base that allows for maximum access to the shelves, while the smoky grey glass top and shelf, and rich black in-lay bring a touch of super-luxe seventies style to the elegant wood grain.
The multi-functional home is here to stay. Now we've seen that our homes can swiftly become work and study spaces, entertainment zones and more, there's a demand to continue to be able to adapt them easily, through choice rather than necessity.
Want the ease of being able to expand your dining table to seat more guests when you need to, without it taking up too much space when you don’t? The Aspen is a solid oak piece with the option to extend for larger gatherings.
Its asymmetric leg design gives it a sturdy yet stylish frame, while the metal-inlays on the table trim adds an elegant finish.
Whether you’re back to the office or working from home, a designated desk area has become essential for many. Even better if it can be disguised as a different piece of furniture at the end of the working day, such as Dickens.
This stylish oak desk has a concealed drawer at the front so laptops and office paraphernalia can be hidden away, allowing you to switch off and the desk to blend in with your living space.
The ultimate in flair and flexibility is the Astaire coffee table, with three individual pieces that can be configured to suit. Choose from a selection of wooden, leather or fabric finishes, or mix it up to create a personalised piece that can double up as a footstool.
