5 of the best… sofas
Kick those shoes off and settle in: it's the speed-round Muddy edit of the most important thing you'll ever buy — a sofa. Squashy, stylish, easy to clean...how do you like 'em?
Strictly speaking it’s a four-seater, but come Christmas you know there’ll be a good six whole bums squeezing onto this Duresta Vaughan II sofa from John Lewis. It’s a grand style, with brass-tipped wooden legs, duck feather cushions, and high sides (convenient to prevent anyone toppling off). We love the splendour of the turmeric velvet, too.
An appealing mix of 60s showbiz glamour and cushion-y comfort, this Vivienne Modular Sofa from Soho Home is inspired by the mid-century British television industry. It’s got a cool wrap-around back design, and is made out of textured boucle fabric, like one giant cushion. We like.
This 2-Seater Tan Leather sofa from Heal’s has a simple, stylish design that has the benefit of being wipe-clean (talking to all you Messy Bessies out there). Think vintage French club chic brought into the 21st century.
Just a real good, real comfy place to sit: this Banoffee sofa from Loaf is ultra-squishy and no-fuss, and handmade in Derbyshire.
A pared-back, contemporary look at an easy-on-the-bank-account price. This Monterosso sofa from MADE is trendy but subtle, so can fit effortlessly into your sitting room. Then, crucially, you can sit effortlessly on it.
