Main Considerations When Buying a Sofa

Choose a sofa style that you’re drawn to. Fancy yourself as a mid-century muse? Opt for The Rebel collection. Modern mooching more your thing? Take a seat on The Big Chill. Perhaps you're more into modern but with the ‘sink into me’ feeling, in which case the fully modular Cloud Sundae collection is calling your name. Have you got limited space? Looking for the same marshmallowy feel of The Cloud Sundae? Our new Small Biggie collection was designed for you. Need utimate flexibility to build and grow, with options to include side table instead of an arm? The life-sized Lego Maverick collection has your name on it.

 

Whatever your aesthetic, our sofas are modular and can fit into any corner of your life. What’s more, you can customise the size, configuration, orientation and even the types of legs or arms, so they really can fit into your ideal world and grow with you. Have we got you excited about the limitless layouts available? Keep on reading, there’s plenty more where that came from!

At Snug, we're all about comfort. The clue’s in the name, right? You should consider what kind of sofa you want in terms of how it feels. Do you prefer a sofa with a little bounce when you sit? Then you should opt for The Big Chill or The Rebel. Or do you prefer to sink into a couch? If so, you should discover a new realm of cosy with The Cloud Sundae or The Small Biggie. The perfect mid point is The Maverick, you'll get all of the Snug comfort and support.

Measure your space to get an idea for what you’re playing with and leave enough room to walk around comfortably – it can be snug, but no one wants it to be a squeeze!

 

Luckily for you though, you don’t need to lose any sleep worrying about measurements. We know that one size doesn’t fit all. That’s why our modular options will fit into any space, and with the flexibility of different configurations, you can find the perfect size sofa for your needs.
