What Makes for the Perfect Sofa?

When considering the purchase of a new sofa, what is it you actually look for? This can be a difficult question to answer as there is likely to be more than one thing you will look for, so to help you out with this, we at Tailor Made Sofas thought we’d run through the three main features we feel are a necessity in the make-up of any sofa. As a result of this, we hope it will be easier for you to get the basics in place before any additional requirements you would like can be considered. Read on to find out more;


After a long, stressful day at work, the one thing most of us look forward to is spending an evening sprawled across the sofa with the TV on and maybe even a glass of wine within easy reach. In order to achieve this and encourage rest and relaxation you will need a comfortable sofa, so this should certainly be one of the factors you make a priority of your new furniture.

With a tailor made sofa, you can have complete control over this important factor as most cushions can be filled with foam, fibre or feathers dependent on your preference whilst the length, depth and height can be adjusted to suit you. Furthermore, there are different back cushion styles available and the seat and arm height can be varied to offer the highest possible level of comfort to the user.


After comfort comes appearance as you will undoubtedly want your new sofa to compliment your current interior, reflecting your preferred tastes and ultimately adding a positive design element to the room. There are many different styles of sofa available to you, with different patterns and coloured fabric so you can choose something that suits the current decor of the room you plan to introduce the sofa in to or alternatively use your new sofa as a base for the redesign of the room and base the colours you add to the walls around it; the choice is completely up to you.


There is no secret surrounding the fact that a new sofa is an investment, so it is understandable that you will expect your investment to last. One of the best ways to ensure longevity is to follow the highest design and construction practices, something you can be assured of with a sofa from Tailor Made Sofas. Thanks to our team’s vast experience, we can create bespoke furniture that meets your needs perfectly and will continue to do so for a considerable number of years to follow.

With these three features at the forefront of your mind, you should be well on the way to purchasing the perfect sofa that will be comfortable to relax on, look great and be a long lasting feature of your home.
