Main sofa in the living room (waits to get bashed by 'u' crowd) has gone. It needs changing.

I want a really big fabric one ideally no smaller than 230cm long and a good seat depth (at least 95cm). So prob billed as 3.5/4 seater

No vile DFS creations please. Budget around £1k (preferably less). Any brilliant websites please? I have tried...

Sofa.com (not enough fabric choices)
Sofaworkshop.com (favourite but £££)
Indigofurniture (love the big purple one)
DFS (gak)
SCS (double gak)
Furniture123 (triple gak with extra phlegm)
Harveys (quadrouple gak with... well you get the picture)
Nest (too modern)
Habitat (hmmm)
Ikea (too small)
sofasofa (ick)

Plus loads of random google 'sofa' sites.

All interesting links appreciated.

have I offended you all with my hatred of DFS or are you all so deathly bored by my sofa quest ?

Erm well you've kind of covered anywhere I could think of! Any independent stores near you? I've seen some nice big squashy ones in non chain stores...

Yes, but it is mainly Duresta stuff which is either eyeshocking fabrics or £2.5k+ (or both !)

I like the stockholm, ggirl. Nice shape and looks snuggly.

We're off to check out some sofas in RL tomorrow, my laptop web history is chock full of sofa porn and I am constantly walking around with a blardy tape mesure in my pocket.

DH has now agreed that we need to change both sofas but we are not fully agreed on the general style of their replacements. Not that it matters, I'll get the ones I want and he will agree that they look fab once they are in (as he does with pretty much all of my decor decisions).
