Inspiration Station - Sofas
Your sofa sits at the heart of your living room. Somewhere to put your feet up with your partner, watch your kids grow up, have a cuppa with an old friend or, simply, catch up with a bit of me-time. A contemporary home calls for a modern sofa: stylish, timeless and, most importantly, exceedingly comfortable. If you’re looking for a sofa that ticks all these boxes, your search ends here...

What is a modern sofa?
There are many of our sofas that fall under the modern umbrella thanks to their effortlessly chic nature and inherently comfortable build. Incarnations of modern sofas tend to include camelback, chesterfield, chaise and tuxedo styles, among others. You can find examples of this modern design edge in our Memphis and Evie ranges and beyond.
We understand that in a modern family home, there’s a need to have a personalised sofa that suits you and your space. That’s why we offer a range of modular sofas that allow you to style your own sofa arrangement, configured into a shape that works for your home. The boxy shape of our minimalist Morgan range displays stylish simplicity, and can be moulded to match your vision of a modern sofa.
Not all homes have the luxury of space, so maybe a couple of sophisticated loveseats are an option for you. Ideal for getting cosy on to watch a movie, loveseats like this one from our Cooper collection are compact yet don’t scrimp on style thanks to the clean lines which show a Scandi-inspired influence.
Does a modern sofa have to be a uniform block colour or can it be covered in patterns? Well, either! And you could even mix and match…
We love the bold statement of the royal blue upholstery of our Fraser sofa. It gives you a springboard to handpick a colour palette for your cushions, throws and other living room accessories.
Our jewel-toned Jasmine sofas come in a selection of vibrant colours that add a prismatic edge to any modern family home. They can be beautifully complemented with matching Jasmine accent chairs and footstools, covered in eclectic prints that marry patterns instead of causing an uncomfortable clash.
Best fabrics for modern sofas
Sofas are a piece of furniture that you and your family use every day so they need to be durable. This often comes down to your choice of fabric.
If your growing family includes young children and pets, our fabric sofas, which include our gorgeous Gainsborough range, are great for the whole family. If there are any accidents we have a fabric care kit to allow you to clean your sofa and remove many household stains.
Leather is also a winning choice for stain-prone homes as the sleekness of the material means you can easily wipe away mess. Settees made from this material are also best for allergy sufferers as leather is hypoallergenic. We love the sink-in shape of our Clayton sofas which really help update the comfortable leather sofa into a staple of modern style. Don’t forget your leather care kit.
Sofas with storage
Looking for a sofa with a little bit extra? Many of our ranges have matching storage footstools that not only complete the look by filling any empty floor space but also boost your comfort levels and provide you with more storage options – another clever hack for your family home.
When choosing a sofa, the number of people who will need to sit at it will need to be taken into account: this is why we have sofas to fit all homes. We offer modular sofas and loveseats, but you can also choose from two, three and four seater sofas throughout our modern collections. They need to be space-optimised, too so note down the measurements and get out your tape measure before you buy.
Modern sofa beds
If your home is often subject to the coming and going of guests – be it in-laws, your children’s sleepovers or friends from afar – you may want your sofa to do more than just let you sit. Our collection of sofa beds are optimised for ease of use, and the best part? They’ve been especially designed to match our most popular sofa ranges, just like the Jasmine sofa beds, so you don’t have to sacrifice style for practicality.
Contemporary recliner sofas
Sometimes, you just want to achieve ultimate relaxation with your sofa and a recliner will always whisk you away into a cloud-comforted paradise. Recliners from our retro-modern Dylan range are electric, doing all the hard work for you so you have enough time to kick back, relax and unwind from the day.
Budget and modern sofa costs
All of our modern sofas and settees have been designed to give you quality and comfort at great prices – and we promise not to break the bank by providing you with a sofa that will sit at the centre of your living room for years to come.
