Interior designer Emma Cross tells us the importance of choosing the right sofa for your home
Given the amount of time you’ll spend sitting on a sofa throughout your lives, a good quality sofa is worth spending money on. It’s certainly not a purchase to make lightly, or in a rush. In fact, ask interior designers what the most important element in a room is and many will say that – after wall colour – it’s the sofa.
Size, practicality, longevity, style and comfort are all things you should pay careful attention to before investing in a new sofa. So how do you choose this crucial piece of furniture? Consulting an interior designer should be your first step. And at Emma Cross Interiors, clients come for many things but it often begins with the search for the perfect sofa. Tucked away in North Berwick’s Millwalk Business Park they provide an interior design service throughout Edinburgh and the Lothians and their bespoke furniture service provides made-to-order sofas and chairs. Whether it’s family and dog proof upholstery, or something that suits an exact space in an exact colour, buttons, piping, soft or firm seat pads – the options are many and furniture will be made to your specific requirements.
Made to order furniture has a lead time of approximately five to eight weeks and it might still be possible to have your new sofa for Christmas. Contact Emma Cross Interiors to make an appointment.
