I have the mags (non-soft) version and it's very comfy as well.. I can't imagine the soft one being less comfy?

Tried both Hay Mags and the Made one IRL and the back is way lower on the Mags. Made not perfect either though.

Don't understand how Mags can be comfy, do you have your legs up, or slouch in it at all?
The low back ones feel like I'd just be straining my neck the whole time unless I sat up straight right on the edge.
Couldn't find somewhere in London with the Soft in their showroom but think I've just got a prob with the back height.

Will check some of the other recommendations too, cheers.

oh but your house can look like every other fucking house with a low back sofa even though you don't want a low back sofa?

Oh yeah, okay, yeah get a sofa you can't actually sit on like every other fucking retard.

Would also like to know too, want the smaller one for the bedroom.

Had a look at the new OLED Bravia last week, speakers through the screen, great looking set. 3K for the 55"

I have the 40* version of the serif, picture quality is amazing for the price. Sound is great too, use it mainly as Bluetooth speakers during the day.
The 32* or 24* might be a little small for the bedroom dee, I considered the 32 myself but im more than happy with the bigger version.

On the depth, only just fits with a couple of cm likely to be spare at the front. May have to mock up a 55" sheet and position it to get an idea on how it would look.

OLED looks nice and Sony makes decent TVs - but no way I want a 55" in my living room.

Kind of want a non-intrusive TV which won't take over my living room (I'm even considering not having TV at all - as we watch much less TV). I like the design of the Serif - and I don't think there's any alternatives for it.

Serif runs Tizen for apps right?

Same. I want a 32" tv for the living room, but can't find anything nice.
