Top tip : comfort and support

The third instalment of our Sofa Buying Guide helps you choose a sofa that offers the right amount of support. Having a beautiful sofa that perfectly complements your décor is important, but it should also offer you the best in comfort too.

The ultimate comfort for you

Some things to consider:

  • Take into account your height and whether you like to put your feet up.
  • Whether you prefer a firm or soft cushion.

How you like to relax. Do you prefer to sit up straight or sprawl out?

The right support for you

Some things to consider:

  • If you’re after support for your head and neck, we recommend lumbar support or a high-backed model.
  • We also offer a split-seat back for lower-back comfort.
  • Some sofas are available in a compact option like the Oakland, smaller in width and height dimensions.

Need that little bit more? Try our luxury armchairs and footstools that support you in a variety of positions, for maximum comfort.

We understand that people come in all shapes and sizes, so we offer a range of sofas with different fillings and posture characteristics. Make sure you visit a retailer to experience the sofas for yourself. Don’t be shy about taking off your shoes, putting your feet up and recreating the way you would use your sofa at home.
