Liven up your living room with luxury designer sofas from Darlings of Chelsea

Specialising in hand crafted, luxury sofas, Birmingham-based Darlings of Chelsea has just the designer piece for a high-end autumn/winter makeover. With a number of styles handmade in Britain by expert craftsmen and designs covering this season’s hottest trends – 1970s, brights and multi-purpose furniture – you can sink in and relax in comfort as the nights draw in.

Sonia Shenton, Manager of Darlings of Chelsea in Birmingham, comments: “From brown leather to colourful floral and paisley patterns, retro styling is a hot sofa trend for this season. Equally popular is the brights trend, designed to brighten up your living space for the dark nights ahead with key pieces of furniture. These trends are a must for those with bold style, who want to introduce an accent colour to transform their living room or even clash shades for an adventurous new look. 

“We are also seeing a growing trend for multi-purpose furniture, with sofa beds, snuggle chairs and love seats amongst the must-have products for city dwellers who may be short on space, but do not want to compromise on style.”

Whether you are looking to liven up your living area or want to introduce space saving multi-purpose furniture, then Darlings of Chelsea has a range of high end, sumptuous styles to suit your needs.
