x factor sutton leather sofas simply stylish sofas

We were asked recently by the Thames TV production team to supply sofas for the X Factor final show this year. It was our Sutton leather sofas which were chosen and were to be used in the judge’s dressing rooms. Our Sutton leather sofas feature contemporary chrome legs and clean box shape armrests and the production team saw this model in particular as having the ‘X’ factor.

The television show which has now just completed its 9th series was judged by Gary Barlow, Louie Walsh, and Nicole Scherzinger. We’re very happy in knowing that our sofas were used and hopefully the judges just like our customers found the sofas comfy to sit on.

Our fabric and leather sofas have been used for lots of different purposes and in lots of different environments. This is the first time our sofas will be appearing on a television programme and possibly seen on TV.

We’re very proud to have our sofas chosen for use on the X Factor and it’s very exciting to have helped out with one of the nation’s favourite shows.

Buying a Small Leather Sofa

Buying a small leather sofa may be the only choice for people with limited space and don’t have the option of purchasing a traditional 3 piece suite. Generally a small leather sofa will be in the form of a 2 seater. A compact sofa such as 2 seater leather sofa would be perfect for use in a small studio apartment or country cottage where a larger 3 seater sofa may be too bulky or be restrictive on space and movement around the living space, there are a few considerations to bear in mind when shopping around for a small leather sofa.

Will the sofa fit

If you are really restricted for space, carefully check all of the dimensions, in particular the width and the depth of the sofa. Not only should you ensure that the sofa will sit comfortably in the room without being overpowering, you should also make sure the sofa will actually fit through any doors and passageways. Returning sofas can be a hassle with costs for restocking and returning commonplace amongst sellers. Small leather sofas are often available with removable feet and backs rests, making them particularly suitable for tight deliveries and access ways.

Will the sofa be big enough

Even if you are specifically searching for a small sofa, you do not want to make a mistake of purchasing a model that is too small. If it is likely two people will be using the sofa at any one time there is no point in buying one on which you will feel cramped, if possible always try out a sofa beforehand with a friend to see ho it will feel when in use by two people. Failing this check the dimensions of the seating width and depth and then if possible compare to an existing sofa. The arm width on sofas does vary greatly between different models, if space is tight it would be worth considering a sofa that featured thinner arms therefore maximising the seating area. Sofas with big chunky arms are great if you have the space but if not they can limit the seating space on a smaller sofa. It may be an idea if you have the space to purchase a matching footstool, these can double up as an extra seat and can also feature an ottoman storage space, perfect for tidying away any clutter.

Will I be able to add matching sofas / Items at a later date?

If there is a chance you may like to add a further sofa or accessory such as a footstool to your existing sofa, it is worth checking at the point of sale the likelihood of matching items being available at a later date. Some outlets change their entire range every season whilst others keep the same range for a few years at a time. As  your lifestyle requirements change over time your furniture requirements may also change.

Buying a new sofa, even if it is a single two seater is a big investment so making sure you choose the right one for your home is crucial to avoid disappointment plan carefully by measuring up and shopping around and you can find the perfect small leather sofa.
