11 of the best places to buy a sofa in time for Christmas

If you'd like some inspiration to help you choose the best sofa for your living room, then you'll find plenty of help in our dedicated living rooms hub. Of course, we've also included sofas to suit all kinds of styles and budgets in this handy guide, so you're bound to find one that fits the bill. Plus, they're all available for delivery before Christmas! 

1. John Lewis & Partners | 7-day delivery

The Ideal Home team can’t get enough of the furniture at John Lewis. With styles and price points to suit every home and budget, it’s a great all-rounder. The brand also has a good selection of sofas with delivery by Christmas available, including options that could be with you in just 7 days. And if you need a sofa that can work a little harder to make guests comfortable this festive season, then there are plenty of sofa beds you can buy in time for Christmas, too.

Whether you have a big family or you just want to spread out while you eat mince pies and watch Christmas films, a corner sofa is always a good shout - and we have a feeling that this Barbican 5+ Seater Corner Sofa should do the trick. The retro aesthetic will make a statement in any living room, and you’ll be happy to know that it’s been designed with comfort in mind, thanks to the fibre-wrapped foam seats. 

2. DUSK | 2-4 week delivery

DUSK is known for its luxurious and high-quality furniture, but you don’t have to sacrifice your family’s Christmas presents to buy a DUSK sofa for your living room. You don’t have to wait too long for this affordable product, either. Depending on the style and size you choose, you could be updating your lounge with a brand-new sofa in just under a month. That gives you more than enough time to enjoy it by yourself before the chaos of Christmas. 

Anyone else want to take a running jump at the Hampshire 3 Seater Sofa? This stunning sofa looks incredibly squishy and inviting, but don’t worry if this colour doesn’t suit the rest of your living room. This sofa comes in four different colourways, including beige, blue, light grey, and the sea green that’s pictured. The soft chenille fabric will definitely keep you warm and cosy over the winter months, and the bonus is that it’ll be delivered way before Christmas. 

3. Furniture Village | 7 or 14-day delivery

You probably don’t need us to tell you that Furniture Village is the place to go when you want high-quality furniture. With a huge selection of sofas – and sofa beds – available in just 7 or 14 days, sofa shopping at Furniture Village allows plenty of time to get seating sorted before the family descends for some festive fun. And that just gives you more time to plan the Christmas games you’ll (attempt to) win.

If you need any more proof that Furniture Village sofas are super stylish, just look at the Legend Classic Back Fabric Corner Sofa. With more than enough space for the whole family, this corner sofa even comes with an additional footstool so you can configure your living room to suit your needs. With countless fabric and leg options, you can also tailor this sofa to your specific tastes. 

4. Barker and Stonehouse | 14-day delivery

Looking for a need-it-quick sofa that still delivers on style and quality? Barker and Stonehouse has got your back. Its ready-to-deliver sofas can be with you in just two weeks, so as long as you order before the 12th of December, you can treat yourself to a contemporary velvet three-seater, stylish scalloped cocktail sofa or statement leather Chesterfield well before the big day. The choice is yours… although it might be a difficult one with so many incredible options.

The bouclé furniture trend is here to stay, which is why we’re adding the Paloma 3 Seater Sofa to our basket immediately. Offering the softness of bouclé with curved edges and wooden legs, this sofa is the epitome of style. Plus, with space for three people, there’s more than enough room for a friendly (or unfriendly) game of Monopoly on this sofa during the festive period. 

5. Habitat at Argos | From 24-hour delivery

Are you just as obsessed with Habitat as we are? Offering on-trend furniture at a budget price, this brand is perfect for those who want to save money but still impress their relatives this Christmas. While 24-hour sofa delivery is available, delivery time is determined on a case-by-case (or should we say couch-by-couch) basis, with some taking a couple of weeks to reach your door. However, all of our favourite options below are available for delivery before Christmas. 

Our top pick at Habitat just has to be the Habitat Regan Left Hand Storage Chaise Sofa Bed. While the sofa bed option works perfectly if you’re hosting guests this festive period, the style and comfortability of this sofa will also serve you well all year round. This sofa not only comes with matching scatter cushions, but if you open the chaise end, you’ll also reveal hidden storage for any pillows, throws, or beddings you want to keep out of the way.
