At the heart of the new Grand Designs range sits a grand ambition; to create sofas that are stylish, super comfy and beautifully made from innovative and sustainable materials. Each part of the sofa has been carefully considered for its ability to reduce the impact on our environment, and is either made of recycled materials, comes from sustainable sources or is more easily recycled at the end of its life as a sofa.
The Grand Design sofas feature fabrics weaved from recycled yarns, cushions filled with sustainable and recyclable fibres, handmade frames that are crafted from sustainable FSC timber and recyclable springs and packaging. And because they’re available exclusively at DFS, your future sofa is not only stylish, comfy and sustainable; it is affordable too.
Our new collection from Grand Designs. Earthy rich colours mixed with textured accent fabrics at the forefront of trends, whilst remaining conscious of the impact on the planet.
Each seat is made up of ethically sourced and sustainable materials. It’s design-led, innovative and sustainable to the core.
The range takes an innovative design approach, committed to sustainability. Breaking new ground, the collection puts being environmentally-friendly within reach for many.
