In a way, we’re all Sheldon Cooper. We all have a ‘spot’ in the house that’s just perfect for all our needs – be it binging our favourite shows, settling in for a movie marathon, burning the midnight oil for a reading spree or sneaking in that afternoon power nap. We all feel sad when it gets worn out from constant use and abuse. But letting go is good – for your living room sofa. Just a quick replacement can turn your exiting living room into a brand new one. Here’s our fix of 10 sofas that can take your living room from drab to fab:
1. Diva from Borazalino
This velvet covered sofa from Borzalino is perfect to spoil yourself silly. The big, floral Herbaria print cover fits in with the spring season as welll. Pair with solid coloured cushions to complete the look.
2. Chesterfield sofa from Dialma Brown
We love the two-tone twist on this classic Chesterfield design. The capitonne leather top and tartan grey lower section are a sure shot way of giving your living room a fun twist. Bring in a tartan scheme throw and you’re all set for a cosy night in.
3. Romeo sectional sofa from Flexform
For large spaces, opt for a seater that also works as a divider. This Antonio Citterio design with tapered cast aluminium feet and goose down cushions can be customised with fabric options from Flexform. We prefer the grey though.
4. Charleston from Formitalia
This plush, round sofa is made of champagne coloured brushed metal and has a soft profile. The advantage of these soft colours is that it fits into any interior with ease. But, if you’re partial towards the odd pop of hue, throw in a bright fuchsia cushion.
5. Ray sofa from Fendi Casa
The clean-lined, statuesque Ray couch has a refined touch to it. A band of quilted leather with the FF logo runs over the backrest, lending it a regal touch. The surrounding metal can be customised to various shades including gun-metal, steel, bronze shadow, polished brass or palladium.
6. Sveva from Flexform
Small space? No problem! This suave love-seatesque seater by Carlo Colombo for Flexform is perfect to induce that touch of pizzazz to your living room. The sofa comprises a hard shell propped with goose-down cushions. If not living room, this would be a match for your broody study as well!
7. Ibiza from Tonina Lamborghini by Formitalia
Offered in options of two and three with a chaise longue, this sofa has a framework covered in leather. We love that it has a reclining back, this means no more neck sprains while watching re-runs of Game of Thrones. Plump it up with a multicoloured quilt or throw to up the cuddle quotient.
8. Taiki sofa from LEMA
Chiara Andreatti’s design in heat-treated, oak-tinted ashwood draws inspiration from the disciplinarian Oriental spirit. The reinterpretation of classic silhouettes in a more contemporary way allows it to have a more sinkable seat.
9. Orla from Cappellini
Designed by Jasper Morrison, this love-seat has a curved form, akin to a soft embrace. The polyurethane shell features poplar plywood and elastic belt inserts. The cushion are in multi-density polyurethane foam and fibre, and make for a cushy, comfy seat.
10. Clark from Tonino Lamborghini Casa by Formitalia
The seemingly broody Clark seater is ideal for a bachelor pad. The strong tan colour with black highlights in a brick pattern, is giving us strong Don Draper vibes.
