The comfiest furniture in the house, the sofa, is a gathering spot for TV watching, reading, sleeping and hosting. It’s the centrepiece of the living room that many will spend a lot of money on as they know it will last for a good while. What sofas do you like? Big floral prints, minimalist designs or maybe it doesn’t matter as long as you can put your feet up ? Here are the sofas we can’t take our eyes off.
Named after the horse only Alexander the Great could tame, The Bucefalo is a stunning sofa, which would fit well in an ardent minimalis’st home. Is it comfortable though?
Comfy is just the first word to describe this plush sofa. The Horatio Sofa is a fine 2 (or 3)- seater and if you opt for a classic colour it will last years and years.
Sometimes a sofa isn’t enough, you need a chaise too. Enter The Suzette, who we imagine will look very dainty in a corner. Perfect for reading the Sunday papers or a good book.
This is the opposite of The Bucelo. Squint makes quirky and colourful sofas that will make you happy just looking at them. Understated is not the word, but then where’s the fun in that?
Architect Zaha Hadid’s Moon System for B&B Italia is a sofa for fans of ergonomics and aesthetes. It’s easily the statement piece of a room and a design gem.
