 Your home tells a story in many ways, from gallery walls of family photos, to treasures collected over the years, but did you know that your sofa is also part of the story telling in your home?

Couches are conversation pieces all on their own. Your sofa is the focal piece in your lounge. It attracts lots of attention – and plenty of traffic too. The right couch effortlessly tells a story about you.

Describe Your Personality

With an infinite number of sofa designs on the market, it’s difficult to decide on a style. Your lifestyle and interests should be reflected by the sofa you choose so, which one of these personality profiles describe you?

The Conservative

You have a profound appreciation for historic events. You admire architecture and can easily recall various time periods through observing decor. You prefer well-organized spaces complete with colour schemes that are primarily neutral.

Your Sofa Style: Stay away from trends and search for couches with clean lines instead. You’d prefer something timeless that blends with the traditional furniture you have.

Your Sofa Style: You need the most comfortable sofa you can find. After a tiring outdoor adventure, plush cushions are a treat to your whole body. Look for a sofa that will add a sense of relaxation to your living room with comfy cushions.
