In case you hadn’t noticed, the British living room is shrinking. Research shows that living rooms in new build homes are nearly a third smaller than equivalent homes built in the 1970s.
And with rising house prices, 20 per cent of the the UK population now lives in privately rented accommodation, according to recent analysis.
So, whether it’s families, couples or roommates, there is demand on living rooms to be more than just a place to relax in; these multi-use rooms double up as office or study space, dining area or play room.
These facts inspired DFS to devise the So Simple… range, an edited collection of contemporary sofas, armchairs and footstools designed to work for small spaces.
If you’ve embarked on the search for a new sofa you’ll know the options can be endless and a little overwhelming, so the cleverly curated So Simple… collection comprises of eight contemporary styles in a choice of four fabrics, including linen and leather look, durable velvet and gorgeous colours like blush, vintage mustard and indigo blue.
