Corner sofas are a brilliant invention because, for a start, they allow maximum stretching out by more than one person. There’s no rule to say a corner sofa needs to live in the corner – it can easily be featured in the middle of a room. But there’s something so cosy about being tucked away where two walls meet. Not sure of colour, size or style? Not to worry, read our corner sofas buying guide for some upholstery inspiration and advice on finding the best corner sofa for your space.SHOP CORNER SOFAS
Making the right choice
A corner sofa can be a real style statement but make sure that whichever one you choose can fit through your doors, down hallways and around corners into your living space. Read our sofa measuring guide for dimensions to ensure your chosen sofa will fit where you want it to go. Most of our corner sofas come pre-assembled, which means you only need to install the feet once it’s in the room. We understand that a sofa is a big purchase, so there’s also the option of trying it out before buying it. Feel free to pop in store to have a sit down and bombard our staff with questions.
Ideal for getting a luxurious seat in a tight corner, a corner unit can either be left on its own or added to single-seat units to create an L-shaped sofa.

These are great for creating modular sofas because they can be linked together to create the exact size sofa that you need (or, you can leave them on their own as an armchair).
The corner sofa bed is great for making the most of the space you have as it offers a large sofa and a guest bed in one.
Many of our sofas come with a reversible chaise, which allows for a ‘right arm’ or a ‘left arm’ sofa. You just need to move the chaise to the side where it’s most needed - great for people who might be moving home or re-organising their rooms. Combining a ‘left arm lounger’ with a ‘right arm lounger’ is a great way to create an L-shaped sofa. Or, you could just leave it on its own for a more compact solution.
What are the different fabric types?
Since all our sofas are made to order, you have the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of sizes, colours and fabrics to create something truly right for you.
Not only will leather give you a timeless look, it will stand the test of time too! Choose from a wide variety of prices and finishes to make sure you get the luxury look that suits your budget.

How to choose a corner sofa
The first consideration when choosing the best corner sofa is space; corner sofas are often deceptively big. It’s also worth remembering that shelves, radiators and other furniture can prevent the sofa from tucking neatly into the corners of your sitting room. Take time to measure carefully, and consider re-arranging the room, so you know your new corner sofa will be a snug fit.
Next, you’ll need to choose your style and fabric. A neutral colour tends to make rooms feel more spacious and can be accessorised with cushions and throws, while a daring, brightly coloured sofa draws the eye and lends a touch of drama to a space. Leather is a smart choice in a busy family home because it lasts and only gets better with a little wear and tear. But we always have a soft spot for velvet, which is, hands down, the most luxurious option.
How to style your sofa with accessories
Now it’s time to think about the rest of the room. Will you need a rug to make a wood floor cosy under your feet? How will this fit in the space, and what design will suit your style? Interiors are all about balance. Depending on what you’ve chosen for your sofa, you could opt for one or two textured rugs, printed cushions or throws. A neutral sofa matches harmoniously with bold prints, whereas soft fabrics and low-key colours can balance a bold sofa in just the right way.
Lighting is a great way to introduce a mood to your room. Floor lamps go especially well with corner sofas as they perch on one end and are perfect for reading under. If you prefer, opt for a statement floor lamp or pendant, or introduce subtle hints of colour with a desk or table lamp.
