There is something heavenly about heading to your local coffee shop, ordering your favourite hot brew and running to reserve one of their comfortable seats and enjoying an afternoon of people watching. But if you don’t feel like braving the crowds, paying over the odds for a drink and wrestling a stranger just for a sit down, why not create that cosy coffee shop vibe at home with your choice of chairs and seating?
From sofas to armchairs, here at Cuckooland we’ve got all bases covered when it comes to comfortable. In a range of styles, fabric options and colours, there is a seat for every situation – whether that be enjoying a quick catch up with friends or taking a powernap because that flat white didn’t quite cut it.
Go and set up your coffee maker or pop the kettle on, get yourself settled and sample our top picks to recreate coffee shop chic.

Pair this sumptuous 3 seater with the coordinating Swyft armchairs, side tables and footstools and invite your friends over for book club/coffee catchups.
We know this is a sofa bed and generally coffee shops frown upon an afternoon snooze in their seats, but hear us out with this pick… The versatile and mutli-functional Model 04 Sofa Bed from Swyft offers the same cosy comfort as your favourite coffee shop hotspot, but would also be a practical addition to your home. When you’re not cosying it up on the tufted, buttoned cushions – invite friends over for catchups! If Irish coffees are on the agenda, simply transform the sofa into a bed and they’ll have a comfortable place to stay over!

If you’d call yourself a coffee addict, you’d probably admit to spilling a few espressos in your time! When you’re knocking over drinks in cafés it’s certainly embarrassing, but you can forget all about that stain you’ve just made on the seats! Not so much when you’re at home though… you’d think it would be time to call in the professionals, to get those tough to budge coffee stains out, but for the Swyft range it’s not an issue.
All made from stain-resistant fabrics, even the clumsiest of coffee drinkers couldn’t harm a Swyft Sofa! The latest to their range, the Model 05 Swyft Sofa has been designed with a deep, domed seat, angled back and double foam and fibre core for added comfort. Style in your choice of spill-resistant colourful velvets or neutral linens to create a quiet café-esque corner in your home.
Another sofa in a box, but with a totally different look – the Hadleigh Chesterfield Leather Sofa wouldn’t look out of place in a quiet Soho coffee shop. Handmade in the UK and arriving with an already lived-in look, the traditional buttoned Chesterfield sofa is effortlessly cool and super easy to assemble. Sink into the assortment of scatter cushions and savour every sip of your Frappuccino. Keeping the coffee theme going, the leather upholstery is coffee coloured too! You’ll be dreaming in the good stuff!
