Furnishing a new flat can be time consuming and difficult. In particular, a new sofa can make or break the look and feel of a space. With such a plethora of sofa retailers, styles and prices, where do you begin?
If you want to avoid the high street and shop from the comfort of your own home, then made.com is a great place to do it. The brand is uncompromising on quality and retails designs straight from the manufacturers. Made.com is also dedicated to bringing designs to you at discounted prices of up to 70%.
If minimal design and clean lines are your thing, then look no further than Muji. Muji is a fantastic Japanese brand that cares about its products. It takes time to source the right materials and packaging, and ensures that all designs are utilitarian. Plus, Muji has some great affordable sofas.
You may have already come across Etsy. It’s a fantastic marketplace where people around the world connect to buy and sell unique handmade goods directly from a manufacturer. The prices are pretty impressive too.
Ok, we put our hands up. This was an easy suggestion. However, we stand by it. The Swedes know how to produce beautiful minimal designs that don’t cost the earth. Plus, you have the added value of choosing between hundreds of designs and colours.
Sofa Workshop has a surprisingly large number of stores dotted around the UK. Helpful, as it’s important to test your new sofa before purchasing. How else will it see you through Game of Thrones marathons, World Cup finals and the Eastenders omnibus?
If you’re looking for a sofa with heritage then look no further. Loaf sources products from independent, family-run businesses. The retailer is also renowned for its fuss-free delivery, assembly service and excellent customer service.

If budget is at the forefront of your mind, then Nabru is our recommended option. Nabru specialises in selling simple, affordable, self-assemble sofas. The beauty of a self-assemble sofa is that you can get it delivered to any location and it will fit through narrow doorframes.
