Curvaceous sofas are a big hit for 2020! Forget boxy lines and streamline designs – the less definition, the better!

This type of sofa would suit a contemporary space that is specifically focused on innovative designs.

A white or cream sofa that features black detailing is a style winner for this season. This type of design naturally feels very formal and would suit a put together and elevated space. Run with the monochrome theme throughout your living room and opt for black wood furniture and off-white walls to make the details of the room truly pop.

Sofas with decorative metallic legs are no longer the hottest designs in town. Legless sofas are super on trend and the Pebble corner sofa from MY Furniture is the perfect example. Along the same lines as the cloud-inspired sofas, designs with no legs create a more relaxed and slouchy feel, which are ideal for cosying up on this autumn/winter.

A corner sofa is the height of comfort but it doesn’t have to look slouchy and informal if you don’t want it too. Take inspiration from Sofa.com with their Izzy corner sofa in late Highland tweed and implement some dark luxury into your space. A darker sofa is much easier to clean and you won’t have to worry as much about any potential stains or spillages.
