Whether you are a single mum of one of a larger family of six, a sofa is one of the key pieces in your home. I might go even further and say a corner sofa is even better.
I’ve been pondering a corner sofa for a while now. I love the classic look of the leather chesterfield we currently have, but we cant all sit on it comfortably together- its just not big enough. (see it here)
One of out favourite family activities is watching films and I’d love for us all to be stretched out together not with one person feeling squashed or sitting on the floor.
This West Elm one has got to be one of my current favourite corner sofas, the perfect shade of tan leather, almost like that classic cowboy boot tan brown. The space is designed for sitting and lounging, meaning the arms don’t take up masses of valuable sitting space- which is part of our current issue.
This one above, from Graham & Green looks soooo cosy! I could imagine stretching out like a cat and snatching an afternoon nap very easily on this corner sofa. I’d never want to get up. The great thing about this one is that there is a choice of fabrics too so you can personalise it to your space. I’d probably go for a emerald green velvet or a leather that would age well.
Laura Ashley– Bradford
I swear whenever we stay in a cottage there is always a Laura Ashley sofa in there. I’m guessing they are chosen because, apart from their good looks, they are well made and last a long time. This one above is very much a classic style and one that I don’t think would date. Again with Laura Ashley you can choose your fabric (all types of leather with this particular one). A real investment piece.
Yes its another brown leather corner sofa! This one has a mid century vibe with the slightly splayed legs, but the leather looks like it could take some real wear and tear. Always good when you’ve got kids or pets.
This John Lewis one is gorgeous and heavy on the vintage style with its mid century splayed legs and tufted back cushions. John Lewis do a HUGE number of fabrics that you can choose from too- probably anything you can think of.
The trick is, as I’ve found out, is to know your measurements.
Unless you’ve a large open plan living area, then you can probably go as big as you like.
I’ve sat on a few sofa’s in the shops recently that look like they’d be okay, but turn out to be huge things. Something to do with the relative size of the shop its in I suppose.
In our case we’ve a very specific area that would suit a corner sofa so it narrows the search down a bit.
Do you have a corner sofa? If so has it improved your living space, does it work for you? What did you go for?? How many more questions can I ask 😉
