Finding ‘The One’

When shopping for a new sofa it can feel a little daunting. Where do you start? What’s important to know? What size, fabric and colour should you choose? But fear not, I’m here to help break it down for you and I’m confident Sofology has exactly what you’re looking for.

I recently visited their Preston Showroom to check out five of their newest sofa ranges; Ambleside, Como, Cartmel, Oxford and Keswick. The staff were super helpful, offering a fountain of knowledge and I could have happily sat there all day with a brew in hand, sinking into all their gorgeous sofas like a warm hug!

What’s great about visiting the showrooms in person is that you have the opportunity to ‘try before you buy’, because we all know that everyone’s preferences are different when it comes to a sofa, whether you like a firm place to park your bottom or prefer something you can really sink into. It’s also great being able to see all the room sets, as they place their sofas into home settings so you can imagine how it would look in your living room, along with getting to feel and see all the stunning fabrics in person.

Something For Everyone

Sofology’s newest ranges offer something for everyone, whether you’ve got a huge room waiting to entertain the masses, or a small quaint space to make cosy and snug. The Ambleside, Como, Cartmel, Oxford and Keswick ranges all come with a range of chairs, sofas and footstools to suit any room, so there’s plenty of choice when you come to browse.

Sofology want you to feel at home on a sofa you love this Autumn/Winter, and they want you to feel safe in the knowledge that each sofa range is exclusively designed, expertly hand crafted and comes with a 20 year guarantee. 

As we head into the colder months, comfort is key, but so is knowing that you’ve made the right decision for you! With sofas starting at just £15 per month with 0% interest, you can build a home you love without breaking the bank. So let’s get down to the details, so that you can find your next dream sofa in confidence…

A closer look

The Cartmel loveseat was the first piece I tested on my visit to the store, and I could have happily stayed in that spot once I’d sat down.

It was presented in a gorgeous yellow velvet, but is available in a choice of woven mix, velvet or soft boucle fabrics.

It had a bold, contemporary shape, made to make a statement, whilst offering great support and comfort.

I love a bold colour in my home, so I was instantly drawn to this range and could imagine it adorned in patterned cushions and throws, or holding its own in a more minimal setting too.

Next up I headed to the Como range which is available in a chenille fabric with a selection of colours to choose from, and you can opt for a plain or contrast fabric on the sides to add interest.

The Como is a curvaceous sofa with high arms and back that’s perfect for relaxing and, with a choice of full back or pillow back options, you can really find the right fit for you.

The Keswick has a sleek design available in soft woven mix or luxurious velvet, ranging from graphite grey, to mustard yellow and navy blue, meaning this sofa can be customised to suit almost any interior style.

The piped edges and wooden feet give a stylish finish to the collection and sit great in spaces both big and small.

Then we have Ambleside, which really caught my attention with its gorgeous curves, range of fabrics and sleek silhouette.

It was a beautiful piece to sit on, offering support and comfort and the button detail on the back cushions gave great interest.

Finally, we have the Oxford, and what a show stopper this one is!

Available in a range of fabrics and colours, this timeless Chesterfield style will be the talking point of any room.

Sitting where modern meets traditional, this sofa is a statement piece that can hold its own. So kick up your feet and enjoy.

Create a relaxation haven

Buying your first sofa, or a new sofa, can sometimes feel like a big, daunting decision, but it doesn’t have to be! A sofa is the part of your home that gets used daily, it’s there to help you feel safe, it’s there to comfort you, it’s there whilst you laugh and make memories and it’s a big part of your life. Buying a new sofa should be fun and feel right for YOU, and with Sofology’s newest ranges, there really is something to suit all homes, spaces and personalities.

Visit a showroom, try them out for yourself and order some colour swatches so you can see and feel them in your space at home. And don’t worry if you’re not confident enough to choose a bold colour. Use cushions and throws to easily change up the look of your new sofa through the changing seasons. 

A new sofa is a new way for you to express yourself at home and Sofology have got you covered, whatever your needs might be!
