The press are already calling it 'meagre October', as the British public decided to tighten their belts and spend less in stores. But one item seems to have bucked the trend. Made.com have just reported that sales of one particular piece of furniture increased by a humungous 75 per cent over the course of the month. Do you have any ideas as to what it could be?
We'll give you a few clues. It's great for hiding behind when watching scary Halloween movies. A whole family could fit on it. And unlike Baby, you'll definitely want to be putting it in a CORNER.

Yes, it's the corner sofa! Did you get it right?
As the cold weather arrives and the days get shorter, it seems we've gone into full-blown snuggle mode. Made.com puts in down to the start of 'binge racing' season, and say 'it's clear that people are preparing somewhere comfy to race through the latest series of shows like GLOW and Stranger Things.'
Sales of all sofas rose by 18%, but it seems that corner styles are particularly in vogue. Providing space for two to stretch out comfortably, or the whole family to pile on, it's not hard to see why.
