When shopping for a corner sofa, the most important thing to know is whether it will fit in your space! Luckily we have plenty of options for all spaces - from small 3 seater corner sofas to huge corner groups or modular sofas that can seat upwards of 7 people. To find out what will fit, you’ll need to take both length, width and seat depth measurements - and be aware of how the height may impact window sills, radiators and any panelling or decorative wall features. When measuring for your sofa, it’s often helpful to mark the shape with tape or newspaper on the floor, so you can get a feel for how much space it will take in your room. Don’t forget to check it will fit through doors and hallways too! For more information and advice on measuring your space for your corner sofa, check out our sofa measuring guide.

How to style a corner sofa
Once you’ve made a decision on the perfect corner sofa for you, you may want some advice on how to style it. For example, we’re often asked how to put a throw on a corner sofa - and particularly, how to make it look good! Placing a fleecy throw blanket on your sofa is a surefire way to add a splash of colour or make your living room feel warmer and more welcoming. A few of our favourite ways to style a throw include; neatly folding the throw into thirds, and hanging it over the back of the sofa or the arm; a messy drape which is tucked under some chunky cushions; folded into quarters, and artfully draped over the chaise or open end; or tossed into a nearby basket (great if you have multiple throws and blankets).To keep a fluffy blanket in place on a leather sofa, try sticking some Velcro tape on the fabric and attach it to the back of the sofa, draping the throw over the seat as you see fit.
If your sofa doesn’t come with built-in storage or cup holders, you’ll likely want a handy surface to put drinks on - luckily we also stock a range of coffee tables and bedside tables that do the job perfectly. And for the final finishing touches, check out our selection of stylish rugs and scatter cushions to truly make it your thing.
How to arrange cushions on a corner sofa
Styling your corner sofa is one thing - but what about how to dress a corner sofa with cushions? Some of our favourite ways include; in pairs - a minimalist and modern approach, groups of 2 or 4 cushions work well; in threes - a more informal and relaxed look, which works best with mixed sizes; repeating pattern - choose two or three styles and repeat them in a pattern; mixed shapes - go bold with a mix of colours, shapes and styles for an eclectic look; or colour palette - select all the same shapes or styles, but mix up the colours to bring variety to your space. If you like to change up your space often, consider a pillow back sofa - these are ideal for rearranging cushions for a fresh look. Searching for the perfect cushions to dress your corner sofa?
