Bright Summer Sofas


We've done the spring clean and got rid of all our junk, and now our gardens and BBQ’S are getting their makeovers - but don’t forget about your sofa! After a long day at work (or better - at the beach), you’ll want somewhere cool and refreshing to relax.

To stay in the summer vibe you may want to choose something vibrant, so we've put together some of our bright coloured, summer sofas inspired by ice lollies and beach huts!


Which colour is right for me?

Don’t worry if you’re unsure how to add colour to your room - it can be tricky to get right. Judith Taylor from Houzz offers some advice,  ‘mix in an unexpected colour - Traditional rooms so often feature patterned textiles that just beg to be matched. A mismatched approach with a bold colour enlivens the mix’.

So a pop of colour can work just as well as a rainbow mix, and can make your sofa the centrepiece of the room.

With that in mind, our Lucca range in Polo Green is inspired by the mid-century retro modern designs of the 60’s and 70’s, and is a very stylish sofa indeed. Simple turned hardwood feet kick out from the base to complement the sofa lines perfectly. And that gorgeous green will make you feel like you still have your toes in the grass, even after you leave the park!

If you’re more inspired by sunrises and sunsets, then our Florence in Burnt Orange will definitely float your boat. Our popular Florence design has a classic cut back pleated arm, and a t-shaped foam and feather seat cushion. It's upholstered in a brushed cotton linen blend, with moulded foam seat inserts wrapped in feather casing.

If orange is a bit too bright for you then maybe a gentle lavender will brighten your room without being too overpowering. Think calm and restful, and you’ll soon be transported into a cornucopia of peace and tranquillity whilst still having an abundance of style! Our Hobbs range is fully upholstered in the Muirfield wool blend fabric, and available in 8 different colours. The Hobbs is one of our larger models, providing plenty of seating space.

If you have lots of space - and better yet, lots of people to entertain - then our Genoa modular unit is just the design for you. One of our newest additions, the Genoa has classic piped scroll arms and clean lines, and is both simple yet elegant. The simplicity of the design gives it a timelessness which, when upholstered in contemporary colours such as duck egg or turquoise, harmonizes perfectly within a modern setting.

If you prefer a more traditional style, our Grosvenor sofa may be just the ticket. A Chesterfield in all but its name, the Grosvenor combines a classic design with a modern linen mix fabric available in nine colours. Moulded foam seat cushions provide even support and are encased in a duck feather outer lining. Our Denim colour is bold without being ostentatious, and will remind you of the deep blue seas from your holidays.

If you don’t want to commit to a particular colour just for the summer, then it’s a great idea to choose a sofa with removable covers, as this allows you to change your décor to suit your mood (and the weather!). Our ever popular Madrid range has been our best-selling model for over 15 years, and comes in a choice of two fabrics – Capri,which is a plain cotton blend fabric, or Kingston which is 100% jacquard. With a choice of over 11 colours in each fabric there’s bound to be one that’s right for you - we just love this summery garden rose tone.

For a classic sofa look no further than our Austen range. With a fixed, fully sprung back for comfort and support, and antiqued hardwood legs in a mid-brown finish, this classic design will look fabulous for years to come. This raspberry shade is particularly delightful, and will certainly get your summer off of a fruity start.

If you’re not ready to commit to such a large piece just for the summer, you can always accessorisewith scatter cushions for a refreshing splash of colour. We can produce our scatters in any of the colours in our range, starting from as little as £10.00. These shades remind us of the sea and sand of a fun day at the beach!

We hope that you've discovered something new from this post that will brighten up your day, as well as your living room! DigsDigs have it spot on when they say that ‘it’s always a good idea to decorate your living room with colour. This room is the place where your family gathers and where you spend time with guests, so it’s great when it’s bright and happy. Such room will energize everyone with a good mood’.

And with Euro 2016, The Olympics and Wimbledon to look forward to this summer, there should be plenty of opportunities for you to sit down with a glass of vino and embrace your new colourful sofa!
