Looking for something a bit traditional

I need something that has support for my back, so I can sit up straight, so impossible to slouch on.

Love the pink chesterfield

Oh I love those Loaf sofas, but they’re too low on the ground.
Meant to put that requirement too, has to be high off the ground. So my legs and back can be at right angles iyswim?

I love that you're going bold in your interiors! I eyed this pink sofa the other week and am obsessed

Surest a have similar to the Loaf one, but i find they are best for taller people. Might suit you.

I think the first picture is the nicest of the two. I'd love a pink sofa, but my husband would have heart failure.

Wouldn’t you worry it would look a bit dated once the fashion for pink has passed? Look how dated navy and mustard seems now.

I didn't realise it was a fashion
I want pink to go with the very traditional William Morris wallpaper I've inherited

It's for a room that's just going to be mine Nogod!

familyofaliens I just want to say I manage a home decor store and navy is very much making a comeback this autumn. And mustard (or more specifically ochre really) is still very popular in my shop, especially for bedrooms, not so much downstairs rooms anymore.

Oh op how wonderful! Make it as pink as you like then 😍

We’ve gone for orchid clever velvet from
They had a 20% off sale a emcee weeks or so ago and we are now eagerly awaiting it to arrive! Can’t work out how to attach the photo that gave us courage to go for it

Should add I have a really bad back that needs support so we went for a sofa with an upright back

I sat on the chesterfield yesterday.
It's a bit too deep for my back, so a bit disappointing

I work in the furniture trade OP.

You need a higher backed sofa than a Chesterfield for back/neck support. Try a local upholsterer and get one made for you. We make bespoke and a lot of people add extra height to the back, less of a rake so sofa is more upright (adding height to back legs and not the front ones) and using lumbar support cushions on the back (they look like they are split into 2 horizontally). Getting the size from front to back (depth) is really important too for back support.

You'd get far better value for money and you can choose your fabric. Linwood has a fab range of velvet called Tango that is stain repellent; Wemyss and Romo are also very good for pinks.
