What should your sofa be able to do?
A sofa is not necessarily cheap. A bad buy haunts you every time you want to throw yourself on it after a long day and just can’t sit comfortably – let alone any injuries resulting from incorrect jumping technique. Before you buy a new sofa, first define your financial framework and think carefully about what you actually want to use the new sofa for. Which of these categories suits you?
Custom-made sofas for lounging and relaxing
For example, do you want to use the sofa mainly for watching TV and also like to take a nap on it? Then the Wiesbaden sofa suits you with its flexibly selectable height : It is particularly ergonomic and makes it easier to get up, even if you are still a bit sleepy. The Cologne sofa is also extremely comfortable. You can also configure this sofa to measure so that the width is also suitable for the occasional nap – and even a long chair version is available!
Timeless and elegant made-to-measure sofas
Cosiness should never be neglected when you buy a new sofa. But maybe apart from that you prefer timeless elegance and clear lines? Then you might like the New York sofa , which is not only comfortable but also looks good in an office – maybe with a matching armchair? The Vienna sofa is also very elegant and scores points with its sophisticated armrests – well-groomed seating at a high level.
Charming sofas to relax in
The young, cosmopolitan London sofa exudes a very special style , which is perfect for a (even very small) city apartment. Despite the relatively small size, it really invites you to feel good and looks particularly good with a fabric cover. The Munich sofa also has a distinctive feel-good character: With flexible insert or support cushions, it is ideal as a family sofa.

The Berlin sofa, on the other hand, scores with the fact that you can pull it out in seconds and turn it into a sofa bed, while the Hamburg sofa offers you practical and space-saving storage space in the ventilated bed box.
