Styling with L Shaped Sofas

hickory small l shaped sofa

L shaped sofas, corner sofas or sectional sofas, whatever you want to call them, they are the ultimate in comfort and practicality for families who like to spend time together, or for those who are looking for a bit of extra space to stretch out on.

L-shaped sofas don’t have to be huge, in fact, small l shaped sofas are perfect for creating extra seats in more bijoux homes without filling the room with furniture and making it feel even smaller. Our Hickory and Ashdown corner sofas are made up of lots of little modular sofa pieces so you can pick and choose which size is right for you. They also have the shallowest depths of any of our l shaped sofas – a real winner for cottages and city pads alike.

A chaise sofa is the perfect choice if you want to give the illusion of more space in a room but have the option to stretch out. The Alwinton chaise has all the style of our top selling sofa, with it’s beautiful ‘howard’ style bandaged arms but with a little more space. A chaise sofa sits perfectly between your classic 3-seater sofa and an l-shaped sofa in terms of comfort and style. We say pair this one with beautiful Belgian or British linen stripes for timeless, country elegance.

Equally, a large l-shaped sofa is the perfect way to divide up bigger rooms and create multi-functioning living spaces. You just try tearing those teenagers, or indeed any other members of the family, off of our Big Softie fabric corner sofa. It’s so feathery soft you’ll be forgiven for thinking your floating on a cloud.

The Hambledon large corner sofa is a dream for budding interior designers!
