We’re in the process of doing up our little house and love the idea of a corner sofa in our sitting room. I just wondered if there are any things that I should be aware of that I haven’t thought of? Any difficulties?
And a little furniture porn never goes astray if you have one!
Here’s the Bo Concept sofa I’m eyeing up:

I think when shopping for them, we found some just weren’t “deep”enough! I was a deep seating area (to ensure comfort!!!) and some were so shallow/narrow on the actual seat!

We have one. I love the color, kind of a light sage, but it’s not a good piece. Just not comfy enough. It does have two recliners, which is nice, but overall it feels like a bench to me.
I suggest investing in a quality piece that will hold up and be comfy as well as easy to clean. This thing shows every drop of anything.

We have one with a chaise on one side. We love it. The corner is the BEST place to curl up!

How do you know what’s going to be comfortable long-term? We’re planning to splash out a bit to turn our sitting room into a stylish and comfortable space.

Squee! I’m talking to my friend who’s an interior designer tomorrow and starting to sort something out. 😀

Yes we just got one a few months ago and love it! It’s perfect for the two of us to curl up on with lots of room for the pup too!
I’d be sure to take measurements before you buy though. You definitely need to have a big enough room for it.

I have an absolutely massive corner sofa and I love it. It’s great for snuggling up on. The only downsides I see are that mine can only sit one way in the room so I can’t move other furniture around and it can be quite awkward if you have lots of people over because you are all sitting side by side if you know what I mean. I actually feel in that situation it feels less sociable than if you were sitting on separate sofas across from each other.

We LOVE ours but since we rent our apt it is hard cuz we have to make sure it will fit in the new apartment when we move. Also it’s usually a certian corner so you have to put it a certain way and can’t be moved.
That said we’re still going to buy one when we change couches but we’re going to get a U shape one so we can both lay out watching TV.

I like to sleep on my sofa if I’m sick or can’t sleep, so I would make sure you have enough room to lay out flat on one side. Also, its a good place for guests to sleepif needed.

We just got one and we LOOOOOOOVE it. A couple tips we found—we went for the full arms, like in the picture you showed, so that the end cushions are the same shape as the others. This give us more versatility in rotating them/flipping them for even wear or if one gets damaged. We got an ‘L’ shape that is two pieces (like pushing two sofas together) instead of 3 pieces (2 sofas and a corner piece)–there’s less legs then; the extra legs on a corner piece can look wierd, but it depends on the sofa and weather you care!
Ours is a King Hickory, made in Hickory NC by a family business….but that won’t help you if you’re in Scotland!

DEFINITELY measure!!!! We have one and I love love love love love it! We got ours from Lay Z Boy so we could pick and choose the pieces that went into it….our house is long and narrow so we had to go this “custom” route…..but it was sooo worth it (it cost around $5000 including two stools that have a top that flips over into tables)….definitely worth the money though
they are warranteed for 7 years…any stains that don’t come out, rips, tears, etc they clean it or replace it…….worth it to us since we have a dog and are hard on our furniture

@ostara72: I agree with the versitility of having both ends the same. We move it for Christmas to make more room for the tree.
I’m at work so I’ll try to remember to attach a pic of ours when I get home. We love our sectional and like others have said, its perfect for curling up in, especially the corner. If its big enough it also serves for extra beds if needed.

Yeah the ends being the same is important. I have one end a chaise and the other regular arm so I can’t change it around but overall I love my piece and am so happy I made the investment.

We have wanted one for years but still have 2 normal sofas as they fit our space better. I really like the ones that pull out a bit into a bed. I have slept on 2 of these at freinds’ houses and it is the perfect guest accomodation.
