Wide Range of Sofa Fabrics & Styles

Choosing the best type of sofa for your home can be a daunting task when there are so many different types, shapes, and sizes to choose from. But whether you're looking for an affordable linen loveseat or a designer sofa made with plush velvet, we've got the style for you.

At Home Detail, we offer a wide range of modern sofas and chairs in different styles, colours, and fabrics to suit different home decor tastes and aesthetics.

Velvet Sofas

Some of the best sellers in our modern couches range are made with velvet material.

Velvet is a hugely popular material when it comes to modern furniture upholstery because of how versatile and stylish it is and its ability to bring a sense of simple sophistication to your living space.

Our contemporary velvet sofas come in a number of different styles, shapes, and sizes. You will find a number of different colours from classic black to more daring shades like green and pink.

Faux Leather Sofas

Faux leather sofas are modern, stylish, and durable. Available in a range of colours, it suits just about every interior style and complements the furniture of any modern living room or bedroom.

Faux leather is made out of synthetic materials like vinyl, cotton fabric, and polyester fabrics. This means it is available in a colour range that real leather cannot compare with.

It is also easy to clean and maintain because it does not absorb stains or odours like real leather does. Over and above this, seat cushions covered in faux leather are not only stylish but also extremely comfortable to use over time because they become softer and more supple.

Faux leather furniture is also a popular choice because it is cheaper than real leather furniture.

Fabric Sofas

A contemporary sofa is not only practical and stylish but also available in a wide range of bold colours, fabrics, and styles that suits most interior design styles.

From the foam seat cushions and soft material and fabric options used for the upholstery, our fabric sofas are made from materials of a high standard that will last for years if cared for properly.

A modern fabric sofa is a perfect addition to any living room or bedroom that needs an update. Paired with scatter cushions, our fabric sofas can turn an otherwise dull room into a trendy space.

Sizes to Suit Every Need

Whether you're shopping for an armchair for a small room or three-seater sofas for a spacious one, our contemporary sofa collection includes sofas in all sizes.

Our couches for sale are available as single-seater, 1.5 seater, 2-seater, and 3-seater pieces.

We also stock chaise corner sofas, armchairs, and high back settees for sale. Even our 3 seater chaise corner sofas are designed to be more compact so you can still enjoy the versatility and comfort that corner sofas offer even if you have a fairly small space.

Luxury Designs at Reasonable Prices

Whether you prefer the traditional elegance of velvet material with a tufted design or the simplicity of soft fabrics in a bold style and colour paired with wood legs, our modern sofa designs offer something for everyone and won't come with a hefty price tag.

You can have contemporary sofas and chairs in a choice of size, style, colour, and fabric options with strong arms, durable foam cushions, and beautiful wood legs at a price that matches your budget.

What to Consider When Buying a Sofa

A modern sofa is the focal point of any modern living room.

It’s where you can relax, entertain, and spend time with your family and friends. But it's important to know what you're looking for in a sofa before you make your purchase.

There are a few factors to consider before you select your modern sofa.

Above all, your chosen sofa should fit the room it is going into and be comfortable enough for those who will be sitting on it. You should also ensure it is made from durable materials that can withstand the wear and tear of daily use (from the frame and foam cushions to the upholstery material).

Sturdy Construction

Construction is everything when it comes to a modern sofa (or any furniture for that matter), especially if you want to ensure years of use from it. Cheap sofas are made of less expensive materials, so they don't last as long. This is especially true if you have kids or pets at home.

Ultimately, even the best couch will eventually show signs of wear over time, but if you buy one that is made well, it will take far longer to show signs of ageing.

So what can you do to ensure that your sofa easily outlasts its cheaper counterparts? Some of the things to look out for if you want furniture with a sturdy construction are:

  • Give preference to hard-wood constructions over metal frames. Wood tends to last longer and isn't vulnerable to things like rust
  • Inspect the upholstery and material to make sure that it is free of loose stitches and seams that can unravel in time
  • When looking at the range of shapes and styles available in 1-seater, 2-seater, and 3-seater sofas, you will also find that some have high backs, high arms, or both. The arms and backs of these should be firm and not buckle under pressure
  • If you are buying a corner sofa with a chaise, the reclining mechanism should be made from durable materials that won't break with frequent use

We realise that it is not possible to check for these when buying a sofa online, which is why we have a 30-day return policy. If you aren't satisfied with the construction of your chosen sofa we will happily refund the purchase if you request a return within 30 days after buying the sofa.

Functional Fabrics

Along with a simple design, the secret to the perfect contemporary sofa is good quality fabric. The fabric of your new sofa should be soft and offer a high degree of functionality in terms of durability.

For example, if you have pets or children it might be best to go with an animal-friendly faux leather couch rather than a fabric sofa that would require regular cleaning to avoid stains caused by pet hair or food spills. Velvet sofas are also a good choice because most polyester velvet fabrics are hard wearing and stain resistant so marks caused by food and pets can easily be wiped off.

Another consideration might be how often you plan on using your modern sofas. Are they for everyday use or just for special occasions? This will influence the type of contemporary sofa that you buy as well as your budget.

Fabric choice is also important. Choosing the best fabric for your contemporary sofa is all about meeting your needs - both in comfort and in aesthetics - while staying within your budget. A good way to find the perfect fabric for you is to research the different types of fabric sofas that are available and determine what you're looking for in a sofa.

For example, if durability and stain resistance are important factors, then faux leather or velvet might be an ideal choice for you. If you want a more natural look with less chemical exposure, then linen may be right up your alley.

Modern sofas that have tightly woven fabric will generally hold up better to regular use and last for years. A modern sofa covered in the best fabrics will feel smooth and rich, while other sofas may not feel as soft or as great if they are made with sloppy stitching and cheap fabrics.

Velvet has a soft and luxurious texture that aligns with luxury furniture. This is perfect for someone who wants to make their living room look posh and contemporary without spending too much money. So if you want something that will make your sofa stand out amongst other items in the room, our velvet range will not disappoint. You could match this type of fabric with a plainer weave, such as cotton or linen, for a nice contrast that will help the velvet stand out and look even more luxurious.

At the end of the day, the best fabric sofa is the one that meets your needs and fits into your budget.

Pillows and Cushions

With extended use, sofas lose their firmness over time. Depending on how often you use your sofa and how long it retains its shape, you may need to replace the cushions or covers after a while. This is something to consider when looking at sofas with or without removable cushion covers.

You should go for sofas that have removable seat cushions made of foam wrapped in fibre batting or fibre-top seat cushions. These are more comfortable to sit on and easier to clean than those with fixed cushions, which can flatten out over time and become uncomfortable.
