Occasional Chairs & Sofas

Occasional Chairs & Sofa

 
 

We owe a lot to our occasional chairs and sofas. These pieces of furniture breathe life into our living rooms and office spaces, but even more importantly, they’re right there for us whenever we need to kick back and take a load off. Interior furniture first and foremost needs to look good, but it must also offer a cosy, prospective escape when time allows. When shopping for seats; comfort and design are right at top of the tick boxes. So-fa, so good, right? But what about Longevity? Suitability? Care? Construction? These elements need real consideration...

Occasional Chairs & Sofa FAQs 

Which is why we've take a short gander down FAQ lane:

  1. Which occasional chairs and sofas are best for my living room?

  2. You’ll need a piece of furniture that fits in finely with the surrounding décor (e.g. leather chair for a modern office, wicker chair for a breezy conservatory) but you’ll also have to think about size and proportion. You don’t want your chairs and sofa to be too big for the room, but it’s important they aren’t dwarfed by other objects either. Take that tape measure out before you start shopping and assess the amount of space you have to play with. Try to ensure there’s a sufficient gap between different chairs, and also between the settee and coffee table. You can read more about finding the ideal sofa in our ultimate sofa buyers guide.

  3. How do occasional chairs and sofas arrive?

  4. Occasional chairs and sofas often arrive fully assembled, although larger, longer items may be split into two parts initially so they can be manoeuvred into the room. It’s essential to take room measurements before you buy – including doorways and wall dimensions – so you can guarantee this furniture will fit inside without being scuffed on a corner en route.

  5. How do I care for this furniture?

  6. You’ll need to follow particular cleaning procedures for different types of upholstery (wicker vs leather, for example) and instructions will arrive alongside the furniture. Nonetheless, there are a few measures you can take to prolong the lifespan of your occasional chair or sofa, no matter what you buy. Refrain from sitting or resting heavy items on the arms, and consider floor protectors to prevent wooden boards from furniture foot marks. Keep liquids and sharp objects well away from the item, regardless of the material, and attempt to keep seats out of direct sunlight to avoid tone fading and damage over time.

Kids Teepee Cabin Bed

Fantastic bed! My daughter loves this as do I, it is really well made and heavy and was relatively easy to assemble. It gives my daughters room a really magical feel, would definitely recommend.

Uuni 3 Wood-Fired Pizza Oven

So easy to use and produces simply excellent pizzas. Wood fire oven pizzas taste so much better and in the UUNI they cook very quickly indeed, (you'll need to turn them every thirty seconds or so for the perfect pizza). Well made product and only took fifteen minutes to assemble - even the correct tools were provided so no digging around in my toolbox.

The Garden Igloo 360 Dome

I love our igloo. Not too hard to put up, it's lovely to sit inside as the nights are drawing in. It's like a conservatory. Spacious too. We've added some fairy lights and candles. There is a slight smell of pvc but the fragranced candles disguise it. Looking forward to using it in the summer too and will buy the canvas cover. I may even put some flooring down to make it even cosier!
