I’ve just namechanged for this, I need help please. My head is in a spin looking for a sofa. It has to be a true corner one, approx 250cm each way - not a left or right version. Sounds easy but they are thin on the ground. Has anyone bought one recently that they can recommend? I’ve looked at all the usual shops (I think). Would prefer one that I could try in real life. And although I love I don’t really want to spend more than £1500. I refuse to buy from M&S after the last sofa only lasted a few years.

Any thoughts anyone?

Ikea Vimle is on my shortlist at the moment

This is a bit over the budget you have set however, I have the large version and it is amazing.

Def for lounging on and not sitting, can be a bit of a task to get up from it as it hugs you.

This ikea one is great. It doesn't look like Ikea (depending on which fabric you get) and you can configure it in whatever variation you want.

We have it and get lots of compliments on it.

We have this. I said I wouldn’t buy from DFS but it’s very nice and comfortable. They don’t have it in store anywhere, only the two/three seater sofa. So we took a gamble but they have a return policy anyway. It looks more expensive than it is.

Hi paddington. We’ve been looking at the Aurora too. Has it lasted okay? I’m worried that it will start to look old really quickly

Look at I've been recommending them a lot recently, but that's because of how much I love ours! You can configure them any way you like, they're so comfy and a real bargain.

We’ve had it about two years, maybe a bit less. Looks great. We paid for it to be treated with the stain protector stuff (Guardsman). I spilled an entire bottle of red wine all over 3 of the seats cushions and back cushions on Xmas Day 2017. They couldn’t come out and look at if for two weeks but the man bought some special spray and it was as good as new. About a month later we spilled something else on it, didn’t claim that time as managed to get it out with the mini spray they gave us. It’s taken a bit of grief tbh and still looks good. I think it’s great for the price. We managed to get them to include a footstool in the price too

Try the Costco website. I think non members can order off the website.

We have an Ikea corner sofa the same size that you mention and it's fab. It's 10 years old and still going strong. I think it's been replaced by the Kivik now. I'd get another one from them in a heartbeat.

I think the dfs French Connection Zinc is about those measurements. My neighbour has it and it's lovely. Loaf also do a few but I thibk they'd be over budget.
