Introducing The Lounge Co.

You know I get emotional about sofas don't you? Well, when The Lounge Co. got in touch to introduce themselves, I did a little happy seat shuffle, because, well, they're so beautiful, and I'm always thinking about our next sofa purchase.

The sofa in our living room is nearly nine years old, and it's definitely seen better days as it's been subjected to lots of wear and tear at the hands of our kids. And when I say lots, I mean LOTS.

I'd say that after your bed, the sofa is the most hardworking and important piece of furniture you'll buy, so it's vital that it's right for your style, and the way you live.

Since we bought our living room sofa, our family has grown by one member, but as he's only just about to turn five, he still goes to bed pretty early, and isn't yet in the evening-get-the-best-spot-on-the-sofa-competition. But even as it is, only two of us tend to sit on our three seater at a time, as we all like to spread out, and zone out. The third person takes the big armchair, but once Baxter is older and staying up a bit later, we'll need to reconsider our current set up, and we'll either need a much bigger sofa, or perhaps have two, three seaters. Oh, the (exciting!) floorplan dramas that will create!

The Lounge Co. has recently launched twenty-one galleries across the UK, within existing independent furniture stores. Because, you know, a sofa is an investment and you really need to test drive it first.

When we bought a new sofa a few months ago for a different room (which you'll hear about really soon), I did extensive research online as it needed to have very specific dimensions to fit the space. Then once I'd found the right one, I headed off on a pilgrimage to check it out in person.

I wouldn't dream of buying a sofa that I couldn't sit on first, so it's great that The Lounge Co. offer the best of both worlds.

You can 'build' your own sofa online, which is a feature I love, and my suggestion is to do just that, before heading off to a gallery. Choose your size, design, and then fabric. There are even three finishes to choose from for the legs - Walnut, Vintage Oak, and Washed Oak.

Here are my favourite combinations...

With a huge array of fabric and colour options to choose from, the twenty-four piece collection, (which includes armchairs and footstools), is not only designed and made in the UK, but it's made by the people behind G-plan and Parker Knoll.

I'd say that makes them experts, wouldn't you?
