The Brits are calling the shots this summer. From the spectacular Diamond Jubilee and the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremonies, to the Queen’s audacious acting gig with the dashing James Bond, to their overall posh personae, they are constantly finding ways to excel with creativity; home décor is no exception.
The recently launched sofa.com, a British import new to the US, aims to offer stylish, easily available, affordable solutions for New Yorkers battling with the tiny-apartment syndrome. The sassy loft-like Chelsea showroom they just opened in the heart of New York City, is a hip spot to not only shop for your perfect sofa with the help of a sofa concierge, but also a chance to sip a savory tea or cappuccino, enjoy kids’ entertainment or poke around their cool pillow bar.
In revolutionizing the way consumers purchase home furnishings on and offline, to entirely tailor their sofa to suit their lifestyle, the British brand offers custom-made sofas, sofa beds, armchairs, ottomans and pillows in a variety of styles and sizes to fit even the most impossible spaces (a total of 18 styles and configurations). Ranging from classic elegant to modern sleek to shabby chic, all furnishings are made-to-order from an outstanding selection of 69 fabrics (including eight types of leathers).
They are exceptionally well made using 100% natural fabrics from European mills, with sturdy beech frames that dismantle when needed. The comfort factor is achieved thanks to a thick layer of soft duck feathers and convenient washable covers, purposed to mold on one’s body.
“We look forward to introducing both urban apartment dwellers and suburban home owners to our enjoyable and easy approach to buying great sofas,” said Emma Drew, director of public relations and marketing for sofa.com. “Whether you have an appreciation for home décor, an eye for one-of-a-kind pieces, or just need a little help finding the perfect sofa for your needs, our ‘comfy team’ is on hand to guide you through our unparalleled shopping experience.”
Sofa.com’s unique approach to purchasing a sofa is evident from the fun easy-to-navigate website, www.sofa.com. You can also request a personalized “comfy pack” with eye-catching sofa cards and fabric samples sent directly to your home, allowing you to order online.
Another delicious perk is the speedy free delivery to those living within a 100-mile radius of Manhattan. In case you decide the sofa you ordered is not what you had envisioned, sofa.com will pick it up under a “no quibbles” two-week free return policy. No more hefty delivery charges and nightmarish return scenarios.
