Agreed, you will have no idea if it is comfortable for your body type at all; that said sofa.com do free returns within 14 days on sofa's including their collection so may be worth a look.

Bought a corner sofa from them a few years back, sent completely the wrong one first (oatmeal 2 seater instead of grey 3 seater corner sofa Laughing out loud ) then when it did come it was damaged and quality was horrendous. I have tried a different Made sofa at their showroom before and thought it was decent for the money so I guess there is some variation across the different lines.

Cheers for the above replies going to put them down as flooring running in a kitchen diner. My original comment was before I had spoken to someone about it. Was concerned about going from suspended floorboards to concrete and how it would work. Hopefully the bloke we are getting in to do it knows the ins and outs as he has ensured us it is o problem.

Floors should be ok, walls are a nightmare if you ever want to drill to hang things

anyone got any recommendations for an office chair? i work from home with my new job and my dining chairs just aren't giving enough support when using for over an hour or so..

i don't mind spending a couple of hundred if needed but most of the places I'm looking just have really shit ones

Humanscale Freedom from eBay. Hands down the most comfortable office chair I've ever sat in.

I don't really fancy buying a used chair. Been looking at the Herman Miller Sayl and it gets really good reviews. I think I'd rather buy one that will last forever rather than having to buy a new one every couple years.

Any alternatives to the Sayl?

+1

Got mine from ebay for about 80% less than it'd cost new. Don't imagine it'll ever need replacing, thing's built like a tank.

Was a private seller & paid £135, was around £1k new so a decent result. Don't think it had ever been used either.

Jawdropping! Bargain of a lifetime.

You get start-up knobheads buying an office full of them then they go tits up and they all end up on ebay.

Anyone know the best place to buy copper or iron pipes along with fittings.

Want a set-up like this.
