3 seater sofas offer the ultimate in comfort and luxury, allowing more space to stretch out in luxury comfort. As your sofa is one of the room’s main focal points, it’s important to choose one that’s comfy, stylish, and suited to your lifestyle.

From recliner sofas to sofa beds and stylish leather designs, we provide inspiration to help you find a sofa that’s sure to become your favourite place to spend your time!

Stretch out with an ultra-plush 3-seater sofa

Whether you regularly entertain, have a large family, or simply enjoy the luxury of extra space, a cosy fabric sofa could be the perfect addition to your living room. Available in a wide range of shapes and finishes, you can find an ultra-plush design that will bring a soft and cosy touch to your design scheme.

Look for models that feature plump cushions and curved arms, such as the Kirby 3 seater sofa in frisco fabric, which is both cosy and modern. Throw in some scatter cushions and an oversized throw and you have the ideal spot for lounging!

Maximise your space with a sofa bed

If your kids are hosting regular sleepovers or you need an extra bed for family during the holidays, a sofa bed can be a cost-effective and space-saving solution. Opting for a sofa bed doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style either, as there are plenty of attractive models that work just as well as an everyday sofa.

The Jasmine 3 seater fabric sofa bed cuts a modern silhouette with its soft, gently flared arms and ultra-comfy cushions, allowing it to blend into contemporary interior design schemes effortlessly.

Enjoy lazy lounging with a recliner

Take your relaxation to the next level with a recliner 3-seater sofa. Beyond providing serious comfort, you can benefit from extra features, such as USB ports that allow you to charge your mobile or tablet.

The Malmo 3 seater electric recliner sofa is made from 100% genuine leather and reclines at the touch of a button, making it the ultimate space for lazy lounging. If you’re looking for something a little more traditional, opt for a manual recliner instead – the Devon 3-seater recliner sofa is irresistibly plush, ideal for movie marathons and cosying up with loved ones.

Choose leather for long-lasting style

Leather has a timeless appeal, and its breathable quality allows it to remain cool in summer yet feel soft and warm in winter. It’s also incredibly versatile and can bring the wow-factor to both contemporary and classic living spaces.

The Brandon 3 seater leather sofa is a fine example of modern furniture, and features a distinctive, low design that evokes the image of contemporary loft living. For a vintage-inspired living room, the Savannah 3 seater leather sofa is more traditional in design with its high seating, rustic finish, and stud button detail.

Contrasting colour or neutral and cohesive?

You can find a 3 seater sofa in just about every shade imaginable. When deciding on a colour and finish that best suits your space, think about the sort of design scheme you want to create.

For an understated look, choose a design in a tone that will blend into the rest of the room. Shades like cream, grey, and white have a timelessly versatile quality, which you can style up to suit your personality with patterned cushions and throws.

If you want to make a statement, look for a 3 seater sofa in a bold, coloured finish and contrast it against neutral walls and flooring. The Monza 3 seater leather sofa has a rich, burgundy finish that looks great in both timeless and contemporary spaces.

A carefully chosen 3 seater sofa is certain to become a favourite spot for lounging out and relaxing. With so many designs, colours, and styles to pursue, there’s something for homes of all kinds.
