Top 10 sofas
They’re stylish, they’re contemporary and they’re outrageously comfortable. They’re our carefully curated top 10 sofas.
Read on to browse our most coveted designs, including simple Scandi styles, Italian masterpieces and more.
Fritz Hansen Lune Sofa
Kicking off our impressive line-up is the Lune modular sofa designed by Spanish designer Jaime Hayon for Danish brand Fritz Hansen. Available in several configurations including a two-seater, three-seater and three-seater with a chaise longue, Lune is designed to look attractive from every angle.
It has a curved frame that gives the sofa a sculptural presence and rounded pillows for a tidy finish. But be warned, take a seat on one of its plump feather-filled cushions that mould around your body, and you might never want to get up again.
HAY Mags Sofa
Next on our list is the trusty HAY Mags, which we think is one of the best all-round modern sofa designs. It has a simple shape that works with a wide range of interior styles, and luxuriously deep, comfy seats.
But not only that, but it’s also available in a variety of configurations, so you can choose the one that best meets your needs. There’s a compact 2½-seater, a generous 3-seater, and a flexible modular design, which also comes in a softer version.
Zanotta 1330 William Sofa
It might be hard to believe, but Zanotta’s William Sofa launched less than 10 years ago. In that short space of time, it has gained a huge following and become somewhat of a contemporary design classic.
Created by British designer Damian Williamson, and handmade in Italy, it combines innovative design with quality craftsmanship, resulting in one of the most comfortable sofas we have ever sat on.
HAY Can Sofa
The HAY Can Sofa from the Bouroullec brothers makes its way into our top 10 for its forward-thinking approach. It comes flat-packed for speedy delivery and is exceptionally flexible. In fact, the sofa’s bottom cushion can double as a mattress, providing additional sleeping space for guests.
If you love the look of this design but you’re worried your home-assembly skills aren’t quite up to scratch, then you might find some inspiration in the sofa’s name. Yes, you CAN.
Muuto Outline Sofa
Living room a tad on the small side? Then take a look at the Outline Sofa from Anderssen & Voll. It has a petite frame and tall legs, which create the illusion of weightlessness, and slender back cushions that maximise sitting space. It’s available as a 2-seater or 3-seater and comes in either fabric or leather.
Cassina 675 Maralunga Sofa
However you prefer to relax, Vico Magistretti’s classic Maralunga sofa has got you covered. Each individual backrest can be folded over to create a casual seating experience or kept straight for increased head, neck and back support. It has a playful and inviting appearance and is as stylish today as it was back in the 1970s.
&Tradition FLY Sofa SC2
It’s easy to see why the FLY Sofa from &Tradition made it into our top 10: it’s simply stunning. It has an elegant wooden backrest made from a single piece of curved oak, irresistibly soft upholstery and scatter cushions that move wherever you do. But the best thing about this design is that it’ll age gracefully, becoming even more beautiful as times goes on. A true investment piece.
STUA Costura Sofa
Designer Jon Gasca was inspired by the clothing ateliers of San Sebastian when creating the sophisticated Costura sofa for STUA. The sofa’s upholstery was intended to cover the inner like a suit and was executed accordingly with impeccable stitching and tailored edges. We adore its distinct angular shape and splayed legs, which set it apart from the other designs on our list.
Softline Nova 3-P Sofa Bed
City dwellers are sure to fall for this stylish sofa bed. Not only does it provide additional sleeping space for guests, but it has a relaxed, urban feel that looks right at home in contemporary lofts and apartments. The covers are removable, for easy washing, and you could even purchase additional sets for when you want to change your décor.
Vitra Polder Sofa
The final sofa in our round-up is Hella Jongerius’ Polder. A favourite of many here at Nest, this playful design has all bases covered when it comes to lounging. The compact version’s armrests are positioned at different heights so you can get comfy whether you’re sitting or lying down, and the standard version has a fully-integrated ottoman which can move to meet your needs. And if that wasn’t enough, the Polder is also upholstered in a delightful mix of fabric, and accentuated with oversized buttons, for a first-class finish.
