My Favourite Place

You might be surprised that it's not my bed - it's actually my sofa!  I spend a large chunk of my free time lounging on it with my feet up on the foot stool.  Be it eating (most likely), online shopping, writing blog posts, watching tv or catching up on twitter it's most likely to be happening from my little corner of the sofa.  This is my sofa and I will only share if all other seats are full and I will go all Sheldon on you if you are sitting in my spot!

We bought this sofa, the footstool and matching chair from DFS sofas over three years ago and it still looks exactly the same as it did the day we bought it even though I have sat in it almost every day since.  I cannot fault the quality of their sofas and I love that many of their sofas are hand built in the UK and come with a 10 year guarantee.  That's a company that knows they make a quality product and are happy to put their money where their mouth is.

And this is our most recent purchase, aptly named Audrey.  I am sure you will agree she is just as sophisticated as her name sake.  We knew we wanted an orange sofa and I actually squealed when I found this beauty.  I've never been one for beige but we did get a few strange looks when we said we had ordered an orange sofa!  It does fit the room perfectly in my opinion though it nearly didn't make it into the room!  We didn't think about sizes and the fact that our living room is on the first floor when we placed our order, it was a tight squeeze but the expert installation team worked their magic and got it up the stairs without a millimetre to spare. I don't often sit on her as obviously I already have my own spot but I do love to glance over at her beauty!  haha. 

DFS have just collaborated with top British fashion designer Giles Deacon to create a limited edition designer sofa aptly named Lipgloss.  A very bold statement piece combining my love of monochrome with a splash of red, perfect!  It comes with two co-ordinating lip shaped scatter cushions.  Are you brave enough to make such a statement or do you like to play safe and stick to neutrals?


My current favourites from the DFS sofa range have to be the Orbit or the Carnaby Stripe.


Post in conjunction with brand.


  1. I love your orange sofa! It reminds me of the one in Friends :)


  2. What a brilliant collection. I really must check out DFS for sofas for our new house, we need so many!


  3. That orange sofa is gorgeous. There is a sofa on an advert at the moment which I am in love with, a really colourful patchwork one. I'm kind of hoping my sofa catches fire or something so that I have an excuse for a new one!
    My sofa is my favourite place and like you, no one else is allowed to sit on there! x
