When choosing a sofa, the final decision is very often about mere details. It is all very well having standard dimensions for standard designs but all of us are non-standard in some way or other.
Instyle Sofas can use a standard design and modify it to suit your specific needs. If you are taller than average, we can add a little depth to the seat or height to the back. You might prefer your sofa to have a wider arm at a lower position, or maybe a wooden leg instead of metal.

All our Foam and Fibre Fillings are of an extremely high quality and is available in a variety of grades and densities depending on the sofa and your own comfort preference. It is imperative that these fillings are of high quality as this is what will make your suite comfortable and prolong the longevity of the product.
Cheaper sofas often look years old after a couple of months because the quality of the fillings has been compromised.
