When you need a lot of seats but don’t have room for a long three or four-seat sofa, a corner sofa can come to the rescue. They are perfect for a family to gather together and sit in comfort, with plenty of space for everyone, plus some friends. Arranged around a stylish coffee table, they’re a brilliant way to use space efficiently and have maximum comfort.
Another feature of the corner sofa is that it lets you have a well-deserved lie-down, without taking up the whole piece of furniture. Some, like the chaise corner sofa, are designed to put your feet up and don’t have a backrest along the extension part, so do bear this in mind when you’re choosing a corner sofa.
Do you like to recline when you’re in relaxation mode? A good selection of our corner sofas also come with individual reclining seats, so you’re going to love them. Pull the lever and not only does your seat lean back, but a leg rest pops up from the front, for a whole world of comfort and relaxation.
Another option is a sofa bed corner sofa. If you’re the type of person who has guests staying over on a regular basis, this can be a ally nice touch. The natural dimensions of a corner sofa mean you’re already halfway to a sofa bed, but a folding out section makes it into a fantastic king-sized bed, perfect for a couple or family to sleep in.
The finish is an important factor when you’re getting a corner sofa, not least because their size means they will dominate almost any room they’re placed in. You can go for a real statement piece, a coloured sofa that really stands out, or tone it down a bit to give the room more balance and poise.
If leather is your perfect fabric, there are a wealth of leather corner sofas to choose from at Dunelm.
