Create the Ultimate Chill Out Area with a Sofa in a Box

Looking to create a stunning living room fit for ‘chilled out’ evenings and weekends with your family?

Say “hello” to our sofa in a box collection, a revolutionary range of sofas that come boxed up, ready to quickly assemble and enjoy.

Once you’ve chosen your dream sofa from our list below, it’s naturally time to accessorise – by adding soft ‘squishy’ throws and focal cushions as well as ‘lounge-worthy’ footstools.

We say “the more the merrier” here – so let’s see just how creative we can be by designing a living space that’ll make you want to kick back and relax. Starting with…

1. ‘Vote’ for Velvet!

Swyft Sofa in a Box Model 02 Velvet 3 Seater Sofa

You won’t want to move from this deluxe sofa in a box – and who could blame you given its plush velvet upholstery.

And it’s not just available in beguiling ‘Teal’ either – take your pick from five sophisticated shades.

Whoever you choose to share it with, the sustainable FSC solid wood frame, double filled foam core, two bolster cushions and back cushions (filled with feathers) can ease the day’s stress away – or make for one truly relaxed weekend!

2. Join ‘Team Relaxed’

Swyft Sofa in a Box Model 03 Modular Velvet Corner Sofa

This corner sofa is sure to encourage ‘chillaxed’ movie nights, gathered on its dense foam cushions – so no more evenings apart in the different rooms of your home.

Available in the same five shades as our first pick above, this second style increases how many people can gather together – or allows people more room to fully recline in style.

Yet, only one person is required for its assembly – should everyone disappear upon delivery.

Similarly, its modular design means each of the pieces are freestanding – so it’s easier to relocate or add on a cheeky ottoman or extra seating (sold separately).

3. Relax … Together

Swyft Sofa in a Box Model 05 Velvet Love Seat

Why not relax with your ‘special someone’ on this gorgeous velvet love seat.

The perfect space for snuggling up and reading – or watching rom-coms together – you’ll both feel ‘soothed’ by the plush velvet, available in four beautiful shades.

Its domed foam seat, relaxed curves and angled back mean you won’t have to compromise on comfort in favour of ‘good looks’ either!

Plus, there’ll be no arguments over assembly – the Swyft-lok technology means each panel will fit together in mere minutes – so you can get on with the ‘serious business’ of ‘chillaxing’.

4. Try a ‘Green’ Approach

Swyft Sofa in a Box Model 05 Linen 3 Seater Sofa

Refresh your living room with a linen-upholstered sofa – where the toughest decision you’ll have to make is narrowing down the trio of ultra-calming colourways (‘Blush’, ‘Turquoise’ or ‘Pumice’).

We love the attention to comfort here – with a fibre core, double-layered foam back cushions, foam seat and zig-zag springs, that’ll support your relaxation ambitions.

Another thing to love about Swyft is their eco values – from the FSC wood frame to the biodegradable plastic, and tree planting initiative – what’s more relaxing than knowing your purchase will be adding to a more sustainable future.

5. Choose a Sofa that ‘Cuddles’ You

Nordberg Bouclé 3 Seater Sofa in a Box

Wrapped in bouclé – this simply stunning three seater sofa resembles the teddy bear fabrics that are trending right now in fashion – sure to enhance your chill-out area for years to come!

Sloped arms ‘up’ the comfort factor – plus, you’ll stay relaxed prior to delivery, knowing that this ‘cuddly’ flatpack sofa requires no tools to assemble. It will fit through tight hallway spaces too.

Available in a chic ‘Dove Grey’ shade – the only dilemma you’ll face is deciding whether to share it with others or ‘lounge’ on this elegant Scandi design all by yourself.

6. Pair Your New Sofa with a Natural Throw

Himla Hannelin Linen Throw

Natural in ‘look’ and natural in nature – the machine washable Himla 100% linen throw is sure to encourage ‘chillaxed’ days – whichever colour you choose!

Drape it on your amazing new sofa – it’s sure to complement both linen and plush velvet styles with its ‘relaxed’ crinkle-look texture that whispers “relax … you’re home”.

Cosy and refined, we know you’ll love wrapping yourself or the kids up in this fun fringed throw.

7. ‘Throw’ on Another One

Bloomingville Linda Throw

Why not layer the previous Himla throw with this blanket from Bloomingville – after all, double the throws means double the comfort!

Made primarily from recycled cotton material with soft fringing, this deep navy woven blanket is sure to encourage a sense of ‘hygge’ all year round.

Suitable for a range of rooms in your home, we’d add a cheeky throw across the bottom of your bed for that boutique hotel look!

8. Bring Everything Together with a Statement Cushion Cover

Nkuku Mika Cushion Cover

Nothing says ‘relax here’ like a sofa filled with our cushions!

The Mika cushion cover (inner not included) will support your back and add an ever-so-cool vibe to any chill-out area.

Choose from the ‘Square’ or ‘Rectangle’ shape – or mix them for a luxurious layered look – there’s ‘no worries’ when you learn that each cushion cover is made from cotton and recycled plastic bottles!

Eco-conscious, its texture adds a ‘laid back’ yet chic look – perfect for ‘lazy days’ spent unwinding on the sofa.

9. Choose a Multi-Purpose ‘Relaxation Station’

Swyft Model 02 Velvet Ottoman

Whether you’re looking for additional seating for guests or a cheeky footstool – this velvet ottoman is one versatile piece.

Bound to exceed your relaxation needs, it would coordinate wonderfully with the Swyft Sofa in a Box Model 02 Velvet 3 Seater Sofa highlighted above – thanks to its matching high-end ‘quilted’ pulled seam detailing.

10. ‘Perch’ or Put your Feet Up!

Swyft Model 00 Linen Stool

This linen stool is the perfect addition to any chill-out area – enabling your family and visitors to ‘perch’ or put their feet up.

It’s the perfect complement to number four’s Swyft Sofa in a Box Model 05 Linen 3 Seater Sofa – with equally gorgeously (dark) solid turned wooden legs.

Or ‘go eclectic’ and place one or two of these beautiful footstools next to any of our sofas.

Available in three stunning shades – ‘Seaglass’, ‘Shadow’ or ‘Pumice’ – it’s sure to blend seamlessly into most decor schemes.

Combine our Luxurious Sofas in a Box with Tactile Soft Furnishings for a Comfort Zone You’ll Never Want to Leave
