Our Favourite: Sofas

When I moved into our house, a new sofa was one of the priorities on my list of furniture purchases, but it was also a purchase which filled me with some dread. Other than a bed, a sofa tends to be the most expensive items in your home and it’s so important to make sure you’ve made a worthwhile investment that you’re going to be happy with (and comfortable on) for some time to come.

I wanted something fairly neutral for our living room, so as not to clash with the upholstered 2-seater, but not of the beige lest it invite some kind of curry/red wine disaster. We narrowed it down to plain, dark grey linen.

Eventually we found what we were after in Sofas & Stuff, which had a showroom just north of us in Harrogate, so we could visit to actually see the sofas and fabrics (and bounce around on them). We opted for the Coniston 3 seater sofa in a dark grey linen-esque fabric called ‘Atlantic linen Grey Seal’ – you can see it here. If we’d have been flush with cash I’d have plumped for the real linen option, but it was nearly double the price, so difficult to justify on a budget.

Here are some other stylish but budget-conscious choices, and you can find many more on our Pinterest board.
