All about sofas and drop-arm sofas

Sofas and Drop-Arm Sofas advice banner

We put all the care and attention needed into creating our range of sofas to make sure they are as comfortable, practical and supportive as possible.

We use only the best quality fabrics and materials, and design our sofas to give you all the support and comfort you need to alleviate the pain from arthritis, backache and swollen joints. Our sofas are craftsmen-built, with stability, style and comfort in mind and some are available on castors to make them easier to move around.

Should you ever fancy putting your feet up for an afternoon snooze, then our drop-arm sofa range will be of interest to you. Both the arms simply drop down, allowing you to stretch out fully and comfortably without having to leave the warmth of your living room.

It is the little things that make all the difference

It is just as important to think of seat height and lumbar support when you are buying a sofa as when you are buying a chair. Our sofas are designed to match many of our chair designs, so to help you choose the one that is right for you, here are some handy tips:

Choose the correct height for easy sitting and rising

We ensure that sensible seat heights, easy-grip arm rests and strong stable designs make our sofas very easy to live with. To sit most comfortably, your body and thighs should be in an ‘L’ position with your feet touching the floor. This takes the pressure off your back and knees, allowing muscles to relax. In bare feet, measure from the back of your knee to the floor, then choose a sofa with a seat height of one inch more or less than this measurement.

Maximum chair height required

Top quality materials make all the difference

We only choose the best quality foams, webbing or springs to support you as you sit comfortably. Nothing is left to chance. Even the depth and width of the seat cushions is calculated for maximum comfort and support.

Essential lumbar support

Our specially designed backrests prevent unnecessary tension in your back, neck and shoulders. Plus all our sofas have lumbar supports that help you to sit correctly and therefore more comfortably.

Lumbar Support

Partial to an afternoon snooze?

Sofas with padded wings are great for supporting your head as you snooze and for keeping you out of draughts whilst you relax.
