5 things You Should Know About a Deep-Seated Sofa

One of the key factors people focus on when buying a sofa is comfort. Your sofa is not only a significant investment, but it’s also the place where you’ll spend your downtime, time with friends and family, a time when you can unwind after a hard day at work.


Taking comfort into consideration - if you’re also the type of person who likes to kick off your shoes and curl up on your sofa, or perhaps stretch out to watch a film, then a deep-seated sofa could be the sofa for you!

Here are 5 things you should know about a deep-seated sofa, which may help the decision-making process that little bit easier for you.


1.    Sofa Comfort


There are varying levels of comfort you can experience when sitting on a sofa but if you like the ‘I’m never getting up from this sofa again’ level of comfort, then a deep sofa is ideal!


The difference between a normal sofa and a deep-seated sofa is the depth measured from the front of the cushion to the back. Anything larger than 100cm is classed as a deep seat sofa and it’s the depth that allows you to sink in and fully revel in the roominess provided!

2.    Choice of Style


While you may deep-seated sofa limits you in terms of choice, happily this isn’t the case. There is a wide range of styles available, from traditional styles with a more classic shape and feature, to contemporary styles with cleaner lines.

You’ll also have plenty of materials to choose from, with deep leather sofas and deep velvet sofas available alongside the more traditional fabric sofas.


3.    Optional Sofa Sizes


While choosing a deep-seated sofa does mean you’re selecting a specific depth, it does still give you plenty of options when it comes to length and height!

From a deep two-seater sofa to a deep corner sofa, there is a lot of choice in terms of the size of your sofa, to ensure it fits in with both your living space and your lifestyle.


4.    Freedom to Customise


The additional benefits of a deep sofa are the space it gives you for more accessories! That extra depth means you can choose that bigger cushion or that extra chunky throw because you have room for it.

Depending on the fabric of your sofa, you can select numerous colours and textures to complement your room and the sofa, using scatter cushions to provide pops of colour.



5.    Our Top Picks

Here are three of our top picks available at Darlings of Chelsea.

·         If you like the idea of a deep leather sofa, the Duresta Connaught is a classic, traditional Chesterfield sofa with an incredible depth of 124cm, giving you the ability to truly sink in and luxuriate in the utmost comfort.

·         The Heartwood is a seamless blend of classic and modern styles, available in plush velvet, with traditional buttoning on the back and pleating to the arms. Comfort is at a maximum, with feather cushions and a foam core.

·         The Feather Extra Deep Modular Sofa has been designed to the most comfortable sofa ever made. Quite a reputation to live up to, until you try it and realise why this honour has been bestowed on it!

This extra deep sofa is an armless corner sofa, giving you numerous options in terms of how it sits in your home, while the luxuriously soft and fluffy seats are filled with 100% goose feather wrapped in down. The only downside to this sofa is that once you’ve sat in it, you’ll never want to get up!
