Top tips for choosing a new sofa in 2017/18

Don't sacrifice comfort for luxury styling

Don't sacrifice comfort for luxury styling

Don't sacrifice the comfort of your new sofa for a piece that looks luxury but has no comfortable features. 2017 has seen a high increase in 'knock-off' designer furniture styles with Velvets being a top trend in fabrics. At Beaufort our sofa range offers our clients standard price sofas with a luxurious style and extreme comfort.  We only use top quality fillings and paddings that will provide long-lasting comfort, and use the highest quality soft fabrics including velvets. If you are working on a budget, our designers can work with you to accomplish this.

How much should you invest in a sofa?

If you are allowing your style to be open, this really comes down to preference and affordability. However, deciding whether to spend little bit more might save you money in the long term and give you the additional comfort you have been looking for. Low quality made sofas typically last between 2-4 years depending on use. Your sofa should reflect your lifestyle, and if you want a sofa that will last in quality and comfort we recommend spending little extra and your sofa will last you 10-15 years.†††††

Add Detail and Trim to make a statement to your sofa

Choosing that little extra detail can go a long way, the stud trim detail on the Chavannes compliments the shape and depth of the sofa and choice of legs for the sofa and chair collection are custom.

Choose Ever-lasting Design and Quality

If you decide to buy a sofa for your home that will last you more than 5 years and up to 15 years, then chances are you may re-decorate your room within this time. We believe this image of The Beaufort Collection is the perfect example to choosing a versatile product that can be designed to suit a classic and contemporary room setting. The soft neutral tones can look stunning with bold warm colours, or with soft pastels, so you never have to worry about changing your sofa again, even if your room changes.

How long your sofa lasts is based on the Frames

How long your sofa lasts is based on the Frames

How can you determine the quality of a sofa and how long it will last will actually come down to the frame itís built on and quality of fabric itís covered with. All wood-framed sofas [some of the Leolux sofas are metal-framed] at Beaufort Interiors are made from hardwood frames that are dowelled, glued and screwed providing a stable and robust foundation. When buying your sofa we recommend you check the quality by asking what type of wood the frame is constructed out of and lift the sofa by the side frame and back frame to determine if there are any wobbles or twists, we recommend you also check the weight of the sofa, high quality sofa frames are heavy and normally require two persons to lift. These handy tips can help you justify spending the money on a quality sofa versus a cheap sofa.  

How much importance should you place on cushion filling?

The cushions on your sofa determine the final comfort you require from relatively firm to the ultimate comfort of down. High density foam cushions will keep their shape retention and require less plumping. Cushions for the Beaufort Collection are manufactured only with top quality fillings meaning you can be sure of long lasting comfort.
