The best sofas are more than just pieces of furniture. As the place you’ll spend most of your time relaxing, unwinding and socialising, your sofa is the centrepiece for making lasting memories with the people who are most important to you. Snuggling in front of the fire with your other half, watching a movie with friends or playing games with the little ones, your sofa is a huge part of your life, so deciding which sofa is right for you is an important choice.

Everything from the look and feel of the sofa, to its comfort and practicality is a consideration you’ll make, even if subconsciously. And every one of those choices says something about who you are. Your sofa reflects your personality, even if you don’t know it.

Whether you love stretching out and reading a book, hosting friends and family, or you’re seeking out a sofa at the forefront of design trends, at Sofology you’ll always find the right sofa for you and your personality.

From super-comfortable recliners to eye-catching vintage models, we have something for everyone in our extensive collection. And every one tells the story of who you are.

The best sofas for you

For the romantic at heart

Whether you’re settling in for a Netflix marathon or having a romantic night with wine and a good film, there’s nothing like cuddling up with your partner if you’re a romantic at heart. And there’s no choice quite like a loveseat to facilitate that perfect night; compact, cosy and primed for comfort, loveseats are designed for sharing. Try the Liberte loveseat, one of our most comfortable sofas, for the ultimate in romantic relaxation. Featuring super deep seats and wrapping you in luxurious Italian velvet, this is the perfect place to spend an evening together.

For the social butterfly

For some people, the sofa is their personal haven, the chance to shut out the world and enjoy some well earned me time. But for others, when the working day ends, the chance to host is only just beginning. Whether it’s a family gathering on a Sunday afternoon or a film night with friends, your house is packed with the people you love more often than not. If this sounds like you, then you need a sofa that’s primed for hosting. A corner sofa is the best way to make use of your space, giving you more seating options and keeping your guests as comfortable as possible. Choose the ultimate luxury of our best corner sofas, like the Edgware, soft and extremely comfortable. You can even use the matching footstool to turn the corner into a double bed for those times when a party turns into a sleepover.

For the classic taste

We’re not all trend setters. While some of us are constantly on the lookout for the latest fashions, there are those of us who long for the stylings of days gone by. You love to stand out, to show off your style, and the perfect way to do so is with a vintage centrepiece, your ideal sofa. To make a statement, choose the timeless elegance of the Matera range. Sporting a stunning Aztec pattern on the back and sides and a vintage studded leather front, this is a sofa that screams out style and class, and it’ll perfectly complement the design of any throwback living room.


For the comfort lover

Not everyone puts design at the heart of their sofa choice. For many people, the number one priority when choosing a sofa is comfort. At the end of the day, your sofa is for relaxing on, so you need to make a choice that you know will help you chill out, whether you’ve been busy at work, away on holiday or on a whistle-stop business trip. There’s no place like home. If you believe that comfort comes first, a recliner sofa might well be the perfect choice. Sofas such as the Laurence are built for comfort. Let the power headrests and recliner seats work together to find your perfect position for relaxation and melt into the warm, natural quilted leather or soft fabric for that perfect way to switch off after a hard day.


Find your true colour

Choosing the right sofa style is important when matching to your personality, but so is choosing the right colour. Whatever your hue of choice, it can say a lot about who you are and how you like to relax. Whether you’re an intense red, a hopeful green or a calming blue, we have the right sofa shade for you. Sofas such as the Candi range come in a fabulous array of nine colours, from a stand out Tangerine to a deep Azure.

Your identity and personality is an important part of who you are, and you want your living room to reflect that wherever possible. Make sure your sofa choice is an extension of your passions, and feel at home on a sofa you love with Sofology. Still unsure about your perfect colour? Check out our colour article.
