Who says sofas are just for cosy winter nights? These versatile loungers are suitable from season to season, and with the launch of the Laura Ashley summer catalogue, classic British sofa designs are having a moment. Here are five favourites to put on your watch list that will bring any room to life this summer.
- Chaise Longue
Designed for comfort and relaxation, the chaise longue design is perfect for making a statement and ideal for relaxing on during summer evenings. Place by the window or garden door to enjoy a cool summer breeze while doing some afternoon reading.
Want a colour upgrade for your home without the effort of DIY? The Snuggler can be both an accessory and a room changer with bold beautiful patterns to spring your home into summer.
- Sofa Bed
If you are planning on hosting summer parties, it’s definitely worth investing in a sofa bed, or a longer, chaise-end model just like the Padstow style. You’ll be able to seat extra people and accommodate your guests.
Have an open-planned kitchen/living space? Unite it with an elegant Chesterfield sofa like the Hudson two-seater. Although many might associate a Chesterfield with leather, the name refers only to the design, so keep the fabric light and neutral for a summer look.
This design dates back to the 1920s and still works well today to compliment a traditional British cottage interior style. Opt for light green, neutral tones for the full summer British cottage effect.
