Many people often use the new year as a time to redecorate or remodel a home. Some homes need a splash of paint while others need a complete renovation. One of the most luxurious purchases you can treat yourself too is a new sofa. The feeling of a comfortable new sofa is fantastic, whether it is for snuggling up at night or lazy Sundays watching your favourite TV. Here are the top ten stores for buying sofas in the UK in 2021
1. Furniture In Fashion
At the number one spot is Furniture In Fashion. They have such a vast range of sofas available including fabric sofas, leather sofas, and sofa beds that it feels impossible to not find one that would match your home’s decor and taste. They offer high quality well designed elegant looking furniture at affordable prices. Their website is easily navigated and many items can be purchased with the trusted Paypal Credit service offering 0% interest for four months after purchase.
2. Maker and Son
Maker and Son offer handmade sofas that are crafted using natural materials. They offer luxury and comfort, and some pieces can be ready in less than two weeks. The level of quality is high, but you do pay for the British made design with some pieces costing upwards of £8,000.
At the other end of the spectrum with affordable sofas and free delivery is Wayfair. Most of their sofas require partial assembly, but they do come with manufacturing guarantees of several years. There is a good selection of items, however, the quality is not near the standard of the stores that have grabbed the top two slots.
4. Sofas and Stuff
Sofa’s and Stuff’s tagline is Let’s design together. They live up to this tagline by offering you the chance to collaborate with their team on a range of options available on each of their models. You can create a statement piece that is bespoke for your room. They promise that they can upholster any of their sofas with any fabric in the world, which is brilliant if you have a clear idea in mind. However, if you are indecisive, this range of choices can feel a little daunting.
5. John Lewis
A dependable brand renowned for high-quality items. However, the store has been struggling recently, so it is worth keeping an eye out for any clearance sales that might happen during 2021. The John Lewis team has sold furniture for decades, and this experience has allowed them to curate a selection of high-quality well-designed products.
Swyft is all about creating affordable sofas for a hectic lifestyle. They promise a no-nonsense assembly process that requires no tools and can be assembled in 5 minutes. They have confidence in customer satisfaction too, offering a 100 day trial on any purchase and a 15-year guarantee on their frames. Bear in mind that the guarantee is on the fame only and that the same guarantee is not offered for the upholstery or cushioning.
7. Oak Furniture Superstore
If you need a new sofa quickly then Oak Furniture Superstore’s guarantee of next day delivery on all in-stock items is hard to beat. With 50 years of heritage, their homely and contemporary sofa ranges are designed by expert furniture makers with durability in mind. The wood is sourced from sustainable forests, and all purchases come with a 12-month warranty.
Sofas for loafers is what they promise and what they deliver. The sofas are ideal for those who want a squishy comfortable lounger that they can chill out on. Loaf knows the niche in the market that they want to fulfill and have stuck to it. However, this does mean the range is limited, and if you want a more practical stylish item then it is a good idea to shop elsewhere.
9. Cotswold Co.
Cotswold Co offers hardwood frames and comfortable sofas in a range of sizes and styles. Their items are pricey but of good quality, as they are handmade to order within the UK. Due to their handmade to order policy you might have to wait with the furniture taking six to eight weeks to be delivered.
Made.com offers contemporary designs at affordable prices. They offer a ten-year guarantee on frames and promise a hassle-free return for up to 14 days after arrival. However, many of the items do require a lot of assemblies, so be prepared to take time to make up any purchase before you get to relax.
While all of these stores deserve their slot on this carefully curated list, Furniture in Fashion remains at number one for the range of affordable choices and high-quality design.
