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.
HAY Mags Sofa
Kicking off our impressive line-up 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.
&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.
Ferm Living Rico Sofa
Looking for something unique to sit on? The Rico sofa entices you into its loving embrace with the sweeping curves of its backrest. Unlike any sofa we’ve seen before, this design from Ferm Living is available in a series of striking brushed or bouclé fabrics that perfectly complement its curved form.
Muuto Outline Sofa
Living room a tad on the small side? A sofa which creates a sense of grandiose on a compact footprint – why not 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.
Normann Copenhagen Swell Sofa
The exaggerated, sumptuous curves of the Swell Sofa from Normann Copenhagen were partly inspired by the form of rising bread. Consisting of a robust padded back and two curvy armrests, the playful, bulbous form gives this sofa an inviting look and fantastic sitting comfort.
Vitra Soft Modular Sofa
Perfectly simple in its design, we love the low-slung lines of the Vitra Soft Modular Sofa. Designer Jasper Morrison has successfully coupled home-like informality with precise details and architectural lines.
The modular system of this sofa allows you to build a design that suits you – anything from a large corner sofa to a compact two-seater, depending on the size of your space. It’s definitely one of our favourites here at Nest!
Broste Wind Sofa
Every home needs a little bit of luxury, and that is exactly what the Broste Wind Sofa provides. Available as a sofa or a chaise longue sofa, this is a design which invites you to put your feet up with its soft velvet finish and stylish round bolster cushions.
Case Kelston Sofa
However you prefer to relax, the Case Kelston Sofa has you covered. Each backrest has an articulated mechanism that allows it to be folded over to create a casual seated experience or kept straight for increased head, neck and back support. From British designer Matthew Hilton, this contemporary design prioritises comfort, and that’s why it’s been chosen for our top ten.
Cassina LC3 Sofa
A true design classic, the Cassina LC3 sofa was designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand in 1928. Featuring a striking chrome frame that sits separate from the upholstery, this design reflects the ideals of Modernist architecture, where the load-bearing structure of the building was distinctly separate from the rest. Every piece comes stamped with a signature and serial number to prove its authenticity.
Fritz Hansen Lune Sofa
It might be hard to believe, but Zanotta’s William Sofa only launched in 2010. 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.
