- Where to get sofas from?
We’ve just bought from Sofas and Stuff. Recommended to us because apparently they have the least amount of insurance claims for damage, breakages etc (or something).
Seem pretty good quality. The cushions have foam inners, with feather outers, so you get the best of both worlds in terms of comfort and holding its shape.Posted 6 months agoMarkoMember
Another vote for Sofa Sofa
Made in Wales and just up the road from Cwmcarn, so shopping and biking all in a day. Huge showroom and if you’re not happy they’ll replace them.
They even include a bit of greenwash as well:
‘Our British Made Sofas are made from non tropical hardwoods, sourced from sustainable European forests. As a British Manufacturer we comply with all European environmental legislation and actively recycle wherever possible. Oh, and our furniture doesn’t travel 5000 miles from China‘.Posted 6 months agoDrPMember
THis makes me chuckle as Chez P has just bought new sofas, and loads of my friends have asked “how did you buy a sofa so quickly”??!!
I didn’t realise sofa buying was a challenge!]
I explained; the situation was thus… “Our current sofa was covered in toddler pi$$ as she’s jsut finished potty training. I never really liked it anyway”… “we went to town, saw a sofa we liked on offer… gave them money…and 5 hours later it was delivered…”
The old urine stained beast was collected by some ‘people’ off a local facebook page…

If you are looking for decent with discount Darlings of Chelsea have an online clearance site. I have had 3 sofas from them recently and all are good.
Another option is the Tetrad outlet store near Preston if you are local. They refresh stock regularly but post it up on Facebook.Posted 6 months agomlbakerMember
Just bought this large armchair from IKEA:
Seems good value compared to DFS etc. And ready to go on the day. Comfortable tooPosted 6 months agoTiRedMember
I think with sofas you get what you pay for. Tetrad, Parker Knoll,John Lewis, and Laura Ashley; all decent established companies. Furniture Village isn’t a bad call for sitting on the things.
Don’t write-off old fashioned brands, they have contemporary designs that won’t data like a cheap leather L-shaped abomination 😉
And don’t get hung up on discounts either – buy quality at a reasonable price.Posted 6 months agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
These are good and you can watch them being made if you want.
They do fabric too.
Not cheap, but the kids are still using properly made sofas both me and Mrs S inherited from our parents.
You’d spend more on a bike and sit on it far less.
Nice people to deal with.Posted 6 months ago
