Care Instructions

To keep your sofa looking fabulous, give its cushions a good squeeze regularly to restore their shape and rotate double-sided cushions so that they wear evenly. If your sofa is feather filled we recommend you plump and rotate once a week.

This sofa has been cleverly designed with a fastening tape on the underside of its removable covers, meaning you can easily adjust and tighten the covers to prevent a loss of shape or tightness.

Professional clean only.

Covers (both removable and fixed) should only be cleaned professionally by an upholstery cleaning specialist.

Colour variation may occur between cleaned and un-cleaned sections. When cleaning, please ensure all components are cleaned at the same time to avoid colour variation.

Vacuum or brush your upholstery weekly as accumulated dirt will accelerate wear and dull colours.

Avoid exposing your furniture to direct and prolonged periods of sunlight and heat sources as fading may occur.

Avoid sharp objects.

Spots and Spills; DO NOT RUB! Carefully soak up any spillage by gently blotting with a clean, dry absorbent cloth. Do not use a wet cloth.

Dark grey velvet 2 seater sofa is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I hoped for! I am so pleased with my 2Askem sofas. They are deep, luxurious and so comfortable. I was concerned they might be too dark for my lounge but the charcoal looks so elegant and fits in well with the decor and furniture. The delivery service was faultless and I was kept informed at every stage. Altogether an excellent service and product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, love it, love it!! The Askem sofa is amazing. It's a big chunky comfortable piece that I'm really enjoying curling up with my Chihuahua watching Netflix. I'm almost looking forward to winter its that kind of sofa!! I don't normally go for a traditional looking sofa but I'm so glad I did. It's really deep soft and perfect for lounging on. It also has a very distinctive look despite being quite traditional. Definitely blows anything I've seen on the high street out of the water! Make sure it fits through your door though...check the measurements. I've got a regular front door and it wouldn't fit. luckily I could take it through a neighbours garden round the back so I was okay...phew!!
