Is there anything better than choosing a new sofa? It is such an important purchase as a good one can completely transform a room – it’s as though it has magical powers. Without changing a single thing in a room if you add a new sofa the whole space feels shiny and new; a bit like new school shoes after the summer holidays (god, I used to love that feeling!).
All that being said, you need to get the choice right. The colour, style, shape, fabric and size of the sofa are all important considerations. Sofa buying can feel like a minefield; don’t panic and go for a safe, boring option that can drag a room down. Instead you need to be brave and bold, seek advice and go for something that will bring your room alive.
If you are currently looking for a new sofa, or can be tempted to consider one, I’m excited to introduce you to some fabulous options from G Plan. One of my favourite brands for vintage furniture (I used to have the most gorgeous 50’s G Plan sideboard) G Plan began in 1953 and is responsible for some of the most iconic furniture of the 20th century. The company has now gone on to create a stunning range of furniture inspired by their classic sofas and chairs of the 50’s and 60’s in collaboration with Hemingway Design. The G Plan Vintage collection has that elusive ‘magical power’ I referred to earlier.
Turning yesterday’s classics into icons of tomorrow, each piece is handcrafted in Wiltshire from the finest materials, and each design is named after the mid-century original from the archive that inspired it.
The latest addition to the G Plan Vintage collection is the stunning Fifty Nine Corner Sofa – perfect for families or hosting and definitely makes a statement. Seen here in indigo blue velvet but the colour palette for this sofa includes shades of berry, topaz, flamingo, shell, teal, copper and emerald – tempting, hey?
You know when you go round to a friend’s house and as you walk into their living room there is always one chair that just calls to you to sit in it ? The latest launch from G Plan, the Edit collection, is calling me through my computer screen! This is a collection inspired by the boucle fabrics of one of Italy’s finest mills and the texture of these fabrics give these pieces the wow factor. I badly want the Bowie to be mine.
Have I convinced you? Don’t go for the boring sofa option, be bold and add a bit of vintage inspired magic to your living room.
