The Importance of a Comfortable Sofa


I offer people decorating advice on a daily basis - I tell them what colours to paint their walls - what tiles they should use in their bathroom - what fabric to cover their chairs - sometimes they listen, quite often they don't!  But the one piece of advice I almost shove down their throats with religious fervour, is to choose the most comfortable sofa they can possibly afford.  Looks are obviously a consideration too, but life is simply far too short to have a sofa that is all sharp edges and slim tailored perfection when your rear end is craving a fat, juicy feather cushion.

I have sat on sofas that could double as a rock formation.  I have literally bounced off sofas that have been so over-stuffed with cheap foam they look like they've had a trip to the plastic surgeon.  I have sunk deep into the recesses of poor construction like I'm being sucked into a bed of quicksand.  However you manage it (stop eating for a month - recycle teabags - wash your hair in laundry detergent) promise me, PROMISE ME, that you will save up and buy a beautiful, shloompy, squishy, divine sofa in a gorgeous fabric that calls your name every time you walk through the door!

Your bottom will thank me, of that I am sure x

Oh Gorgeous! Any tips? I'd gladly entertain them. Our navy Freedom Carnaby sofa is the sacrificial version on Planet Baby with the pixies about. One day we will upgrade! J x
