Find the perfect sofa for every setting

Whatever your lifestyle, we've got the seating to suit in our Ideal Home collection at Very

You've tried everything. Hiding it under throws. Covering it in so many cushions there's no space for people. Ushering visitors into the kitchen to avoid them sitting on it. But it's time to bite the bullet and admit that your old sofa is past its prime. There's no shame in it – after all, experts agree that you should swap your sofa every seven to 15 years.

If you're ready to say goodbye to a tired couch, check out our Ideal Home range at Very – we've hand-picked designs for any space, whatever style or size...

Lots of you will have one of these – perhaps as part of an open-plan kitchen-diner. Sofa-wise, you'll want something attractive but robust, which can stand up to the rough and tumble of playtime yet is comfy enough for cuddles before bed. Our pick is this stylish corner sofa – it's made from hardwearing premium leather, which will age gracefully, and there's space for the whole family to pile on. It also comes in grey and black.
