10 Of The Best Sofas For Your Home

Best Sofa Picks

For a lot of us the sofa is one of the most used pieces of furniture in our homes, with only the bed seeing more use in a 24 hour time period. It's important then that we consider all the options before investing. With a wide range of sizes, upholstery options, leg/base types, colours, comfort and cost variations to consider, it's easy to understand why someone may get a little overwhelmed when searching for your ideal sofa.

We're helping narrow down the search by sharing 10 of our favourite sofas from across our collection below. Whether you call it a sofa, a settee or a couch - we're sure one of these great designs will hit the mark.


Hay Mags

The Hay Mags Sofa gives equally high priority to all the key components of a sofa design which can't be seen - suspension, composition of the foam and durability of the upholstery. Mags is available in a range of sizes and configurations, each of which feature high arm rests and deep seat make Mags ideal for relaxation.

Muuto Rest

Muuto's best selling sofa features a low, relaxed profile and timeless Danish design that make it equally at home in both modern and more traditional spaces. Pocket detailing on the arms and seat cushions adds character to what is for the most part a refined and elegant silhouette. Rest is avaialable in 3 size options, a range of wooden leg options and in a large selection of fabrics from Danish brand Kvadrat - reinforcing it's Scandinavian credentials and all round Nordic appeal.

Hay Can

The Can Sofa designed by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec for Hay aims to reinvigorate the whole idea of the sofa, from something inherently complicated, to something simple and relaxed. The Bouroulllec brothers have gone beyond the creation of a practical, elegant and comfortable design in an attempt to create something customisable and transportable, the idea "driven by internet situations where you can choose the textile, the structure, the size and receive it quite quickly".

Muuto Outline Studio

Outline is an elegant, inviting sofa series inspired by poetic elements of modern architecture - it offers great comfort in a generous seat, yet has a calm, slender appearance. Its discreet legs are tucked under the base to give it a hovering, almost weightless look that will compliment any interior setting.Outline is available as a two-seater or three seater in six colours and various hardwearing fabrics- samples are available on request

Fritz Hansen Lune

The Lune Sofa was designed by Jaime Hayon for Danish furniture giant Fritz Hansen. With the collection Jaime Hayon has taken the flexibility of a modular system and added an aesthetic layer to create a sofa built from several modules with the visual expression of one singular sofa. The soft curved lines of the sofa are very welcoming, and the wide fabric choice ensures that there’s a colour to suit every interior.

Normann Copenhagen Rope

Rope is a highly flexible, highly comfortable sofa that you'll want to relax on for hours at a time. Designed by Hans Hornemann for Normann Copenhagen, it's a welcome addition to the brand's expanding furniture collection, inspired by classic furniture design with minimalist detailing. Piping marks the sofa's edges in an understated and elegant way, whilst playful dimensions and curves lend character to the design. All other excess details have been removed to provide a beautifully simple and practical piece of furniture that emphasises flexibility and endless comfort.

Hay Mags Soft

The Hay Mags Soft gives equally high priority to all the key components of a sofa design which can't be seen - suspension, composition of the foam and durability of the upholstery. The sofa has a softer more rounded appeal than its compatriot, the Hay Mag with the inclusion of down padded covers making this version extra comfortable. With 18 modular elements to choose from Mags Soft allows you to create the perfect sofa solution for your interior space.

Vitra Polder

In Holland Polder refers to the artificial land reclaimed from the sea by means of dikes and drainage canals. The Polder Sofa from Vitra is just as low-lying, just as flat, and with just as much emphasis on the horizontal. It may look unconventional but it's extremely comfortable for both sitting and lying on. With its wide arms, high and low seat backs and additional arm for stretching out/reading over this is a sofa to suit just about any relaxing activity!

Knoll Barber Osgerby Asymmetric

The Asymmetric from the Barber Osgerby range of sofas from Knoll Studio offers up unparalled comfort. The series benefits from "Memory Foam" cushions that enhances the seating experience and limits plumping! The sofa itself features die cast aluminium feet that are available in 3 colour options, allowing you to best match them to the wide range of available fabric options.

Cassina 675 Maralunga

The instantly recognisable Maralunga 3 Seater was designed by Vico Magistretti in 1973. Te story goes that Cesare Cassina punched his fist into the original prototype by Magistretti complaining that it did not fit the brief for true comfort. It was only after the back had been broken that the Milanese architect hit on a better solution to replace traditional upholstery. Maralunga's unique design feature is the movable headrest which quickly converts from the low to the high positions, depending on sitting preference.
