Small on space

Although corner sofas are designed to fit neatly in a corner, every room is different so it's important to choose your size carefully. Begin by measuring your floor space and consider how many seats you'll need, as well as how wide and deep you want the sofa. Our So Simple range is perfect for those who are short on space.
