When it comes to sofas you must have the right angle.

And right now with sofas the right angle is - the right angle. Yes, the corner sofa is the big news in lounge furnishings.


Let’s start with some basics. A corner sofa is a bit of a statement. It will define your living room, so making the right choice is important. Look at it as an investment, so if the one you really like doesn’t seem to ‘go’ with your current decor, don’t worry. You’ll be keeping the sofa longer than you will your colour scheme. Be brave. Be stylish.

Style should never compromise comfort, and one of the best things about corner sofas is that they are really comfortable. And flexible. You can stretch out alone - or the two of you; or you can easily have seating for a family get together.

We’re very keen on the entire concept and our buyers have been busy sourcing an exciting choice for you.

A great starting point is the Fantasia. It’s fabulously flexible. Left or right facing, it comes with a foot stool - which is even more seating as well as great for putting your feet up - and it has the option of a built in sofa bed.

Easily seating five people the Fantasia is UK manufactured, in a range of colours. Soft yet strong it has a tough covering. It’s great value too.

Key accessories with corner sofas are scatter cushions, and they come with the Fantasia. How good is that?

The Hampshire is a modular corner sofa, available in leather and fabrics. The modular design means you can tailor it to your room size. Another great option is the choice of manual or power recliner action. It’s a statement piece - but it’s very comfortable.


When it comes to statements The Henderson speaks volumes about finishing touches. The pillow topped arms and piped detail on the cushions add a real dash to the clean contemporary lines of this gorgeous corner sofa.

It’s UK manufactured, and it’s available in a super range of fabrics. High resilient cushions are a feature, as are the feather filled scatters that come as part of the package.

The Henderson range also features an armless section which means you can effectively extend your sofa when you choose. And it’s got a ten year guarantee on the frame. Outstanding!

It comes as no surprise that the people at Alexander and James have done something rather exciting (as they do) with the corner sofa.  Their Bailey 2 seater corner sofa is everything you’d expect from the brand. Hand crafted, and made to order from only the finest materials, which are sourced from all over the globe, this is something special.


The frames come from sustainable forests.  The leathers have been chosen to age beautifully. The fillings are super soft, mixing feather, foam and fibre which, together, make for a malleable seat that you can sink into. It’s furniture for seriously stylish, luxurious laid back living. 


Another top name we’ve chosen is Ercol. Their Trigginaorange is all about understated elegance. The smooth splayed curved arms and the solid oak detailing ooze Ercol signature style. Contemporary, and very comfortable, these pieces are a perfect blend of modern modular design and classic craftsmanship. Flexibility was written into the design brief at the outset and Ercol have really delivered. Check it out. You’ll find you can create the seating that exactly suits your room.

Others to see in store and online at Aldiss are the Nelson corner group, and the offering from legendary furniture makers La- z -boy.  Middleton, Albany, and Harper are all definitely worth a look too.


The corner sofa is a great idea. Think about that flexibility.  It’s not just the technical things like how many seats. It’s the actual living. There’s space enough to accessorise with cushions and throws to create a cohesive decor. You can do so many things with corner seating. Things like convivial conversation with a group of friends or family, or cuddling up as a couple to binge watch a box set. 


Be inspired. It’s a big and bold step, but it’s a great way to break out of some of the more traditional ways of furnishing your living room. It says you have a great eye for style, and a warm and welcoming home at the same time.


In fact, you could say that when it comes to interior furnishing it says you’ve got the right angle!
