Set­tling on a sofa

Find­ing a new sofa is up there with other big life de­ci­sions, like de­cid­ing to marry some­one or choos­ing a child’s name. You’re go­ing to be to­gether for a long time, so you can’t rush the se­lec­tion process.

And of course sofa se­lec­tion isn’t all about you. There’s also the need to con­sider the needs (and di­men­sions) of other fam­ily mem­bers, as well putting on a great make-your­self-com­fort­able show for vis­i­tors. Whether you’re re­plac­ing an old favourite that’s past its best-be­fore date or shop­ping to equip a new prop­erty, it’s smart to take your sofa se­lec­tion ex­pe­ri­ence se­ri­ously. For her so­fas, Paula Ryan puts her trust in David Shaw pieces, which are sold through a net­work of re­sellers around the coun­try. She owns The Boss and a Delta. “The Boss is clas­sic de­sign at its best. To achieve the ex­tended length of the 3.0 seater op­tion only, it’s clev­erly made in just two pieces. With feather-stuffed seat and scat­ter cush­ions, this set­tee is di­vinely deep and easy to curl up in. The feather cush­ions mould to your body, so this sofa is like a com­fort­ing hug. The Delta, on the other hand, has more of a crisp, con­tem­po­rary edge. The seat cush­ions are lay­ered high den­sity foam and the back cush­ions are mem­ory foam. It’s also won­der­fully com­fort­able, but has a to­tally dif­fer­ent per­son­al­ity to The Boss”, says Paula. The David Shaw brand ex­ists at the qual­ity end of the fur­ni­ture spec­trum. Their so­fas are de­signed and made in New Zealand, us­ing the best ma­te­ri­als and fabrics. Most sofa de­signs can be cus­tomised – you get to choose the size, fab­ric and fin­ish­ing touches. By the time you’ve fin­ished with the per­son­al­is­ing, the sofa is unique – com­pletely yours, in every way. From Paula’s ex­pe­ri­ence, and what we’ve heard from oth­ers, once you’ve had a David Shaw sofa there’s no go­ing back.
