The Harriett Velvet - Make a statement with the velvet addition to the Harriett line. Royal blue and bottle green bring a touch of glamour to this cozy piece. While the pinch detail in the fixed back and seat cushions is reminiscent of Danish mid-century form, the Harriett 3 seater sofa’s shallower seat makes for a more ergonomic lounging experience.

6 tips for how to choose the right sofa for you...

1 – Think about your surroundings - Consider the colour of your existing floor, the colour of your walls and any other room furnishings before deciding on your sofas fabric. 

2 – What shape will work for your space – Do you need a modular sofa to fill a large space, 2 small sofas to create a zoned area, or one large sofa for a longer thinner space?

3 – Colour is key – If you want something that will stand the test of time and your changing tastes, always go neutral; this way you can change the decor items in the space to keep up the with current trends without spending thousands on a new couch each time you like a new look. However, if you are into a more vibrant look, go colourful and bring your personality into the space.

4 – What is your design style – Are you modern, beachy, traditional or eclectic? These are important questions to answer before you even start looking for a new couch… Modern, go clean lines and straight edges. Beachy, choose lighter and textured fabrics with lots of plush cushions in the same tone. Traditional go for a classy and structured sofa with some fine detailing. And if you are eclectic, try looking for bold colours, patterns or even re-covering a vintage find.

5 – Comfort is everything – As much we may love a certain look, for me comfort is #1, and if the sofa of my dreams is actually uncomfortable, I’m not buying it! You will spend a lot of time on this bad boy so remember comfort is super important!

6 – Price matters – with an investment piece such as a sofa remember you do get what you pay for. Quality is paramount with a piece that will stay in your home for usually a very long time and get used ALL the time.
