Know How: How to Choose a Sofa for Tricky Spaces


Tricky spaces, such as bay windows or low ceilings, needn’t be so complex. Take heed of our design team’s advice so you can truly realise the full potential of your living space.

Bay Windows
A bay window makes a beautiful feature space but can be tricky to make the most of when it comes to finding furniture to fit. We think it’s the perfect nook for a snuggler sofa like Elton – comfy, cosy and just big enough for two. To maximise seating space our large Denny sofa measures just shy of two metres, making it the perfect size for most bay windows.

High ceilings
If you’re lucky enough to live in a property that benefits from high ceilings then opting for high-backed furniture will set off the room perfectly. With elegant Edwardian influences choose our Helena sofa for a period-style look, or for a more modern scheme Iris will be right at home.

Low ceilings
In contrast, a room with a shallow ceiling height suits low-backed sofas and chairs. Our rounded wraparound back, 1960s-inspired Elton sofa makes a smart choice for retro-lovers, whilst Philo in a range of sizes is stunningly modern.
