Mobile Sofa

Hello
Im currently sat on my battered old sofa whilst my daughter does a headstand thing on it and my sons sitting on the arm. Every zip is broken and quite frankly its disgusting. We bought it from DFS ten years ago, Pre children!
Id love a new one. Washable covers, no zipped on cushions or loose cushions at the back. It also cant be a corner one so need a big three seater and a two seater. Not cream coloured!
So where do I get one from (thats not too expensive) and will my children ever stop treating the house like a soft play?

Weve just bought DFS chesterfields for the very same reason - no loose cushions but not sure about washable covers! We have had them stain sprayed. I was desperate for something fuss free and that didnt have all the irritating backs thats squash down and the kids wreck. It looks much hardier. And its quite classy looking too.

Ikea? We bought our sofa and chairs from their a couple of years ago, its comfortable, hard wearing, and we were able to get it delivered on the same day

We had Ikea washable sofa for years. Cheap comfy and washed pretty well. You can also replace the covers easily.

Weve now got one from Harveys which I like. But it does have zipped on cushions.

Your children won't stop treating the furniture that way until you tell them to stop and mean it. I actually hate it when children do not treat their home with any respect and it makes me wonder what they do in other peoples homes too. But it is down to you.

I believe some places have some great sales on at the moment.

We have two one from SCS in fro t room but that has cushions on back but they are massive so don't take much faffing to get into position, In family room we have a leather one and that has leather cushions but they dont shift as on strong velcro... pretty sure that's from IKEA, don't have to worry about the kids anymore, now it's the dogs, throws i find are our friends 😂

We were going to buy a Natuzzi sofa until the sales lady lied to my face. It left a really bad taste in my mouth so we ended up going back to Laura Ashley where we have always bought sofas from. Never had any problems, good quality and a good range of fabrics. Plus it's saved us 5k by not buying the Natuzzi one so we're happy!
