Drop-arm Sofas Advice Guide

Drop-arm sofas

Your new sofa has been made from the best quality fabrics and materials, and designed to give you all the support and comfort you need.

Our sofas are built by expert craftsmen, with stability, style and comfort in mind and some are available on castors to make them easier to move around.

How to operate your Drop-arm sofa

To lower either arm

  1. Remove back cushions and seat cushions where necessary on your Drop-arm sofa
  2. Push the arm inwards (towards the centre of your sofa) as far as possible until you hear a click
  3. If you have pushed the arm in enough you should then be able to pull the arm back downwards to the flat position

To lift either arm

  1. Push the arm upwards (towards the centre of your sofa) to any of the positions you prefer

Should you ever fancy putting your feet up for an afternoon snooze simply drop down the arms, allowing you to stretch out fully and comfortably without having to leave the warmth of your living room.
