If anyone here has managed to visit a showroom, has one of these or just wants to give an opinion, please do! Currently going around in circles with these three...
Debenhams
LOAF - think I want in brushed cotton as softer
MADE

Have one 4.5yr old dd so am debating if covers need to come off - debenhams is only one that does I think. Really love the LOAF one but it's double the price of all of the others I've seen. Is it really worth it?
TIA

I like the made one, the best.

Thank you - I was looking at depth of cushion/seat bit and wondered if it would be a bit short but that might be because the others are deep. I do like the simplicity. I also get 8% cashback on MADE grin

Want to order it by end of week so hoping to have a quick consensus!

Only one child!!! Possibly more???? Buy leather !!!

No thanks, was convinced to buy leather when pg with dd and hate it. Sticks to you in summer and cold and un-comforting in winter. It's had 4 years of life with us but I'm going back to fabric!

We got the Nevada from Multiyourk. We love it. Great corner sofa and they have a sale on.

Obviously you pick the fabric to suit. Link below:

Nice, thank you! Is it deep seated?

I'm having trouble with picking s couch too. I have two dd under 4 but like you, I do NOT want leather. Hate leather couches. I think the Debenhams one looks comfiest but the Made one looks really funky and functional too.

Jeffrey you can pick the cushion filling so if you want it deep seated one then yes. We opted for a fuller filling as I didn't want to have to keep fluffing them out.

Oh Darth - I like the expensive fabric! Takes it to 3.5k which is a little out of my budget if I am honest!

I do like the LOAF one as it looks the fullest/widest but it is expensive so was hoping someone on here might have one and could convince me it is worth it wink

I also like the MADE one but worry it might not last - again, has anyone bought one or tried one out?

I feel the Debenhams one is the middle ground - comfy looking, bit funky and cushions are removable... Colour is a bit dull though perhaps.

Hmmmmm. So torn!

OP I have the Made sofa but i have the modules straight. It's a 4 seater one. They are very comfortable and seems to be holding up against 2 dogs and 2 lazy adults jumping around on it. Would recommend!!

It's also deeper than it looks. You will need to plump the cushions occasionally (these are due) but you have to do that with most sofas

Debenhams says that though covers are removable they're also "professional clean only not dry cleaning", so not sure how helpful that actually is. But they do state reversible for wear as well, which is v. useful. Is the MADE one reversible? The Loaf one has "removable covers for easy cleaning", and it's linen which should wash up well - my linen removable covers going strong on a Habitat sofa 10 years & 2 kids later. Call Loaf and ask them the cleaning instructions?

Debenhams doesn't have arms on both ends, which could probably annoy me, whereas the others do? The MADE one looks the most customisable in terms of layout which could be useful, however?

Loaf one has a 5-year guarantee, and feather-and-foam cushions on both the seat as well as the backs (Debenhams just on the backs, MADE no feathers at all) so less plumping required...
I lean towards the Loaf one, even though it's eye-wateringly more than the others and the discount is a bit rubbish. Depends if you have £1500 to spend or £3000...

Loaf - we have one of theirs and am absolutely on love with it. Looks great and super comfortable.
