What do u guys consider interesting sofas atm?
I‘m after one myself atm and did extensive research…narrowed it down to the muuto outline, &tradition cloud or the mags by hay.
But for every model there is that small detail I dislike…

Love the paustian sofa Seenmy Cool

You’re in Germany Shame ? Another I’m considering is the German brand E15. Their Kerman sofa. Looks particularly good using a combination of the brown/bronze and pink Raf Simons fabric below


And the paustian in the same (I think ) kvadrat fabric

The outline looks great, haven’t seen it in person though

These ADEA sofas are honestly the comfiest sofas ever, the cushioning is incredible. It's hard to explain, but at first you just slowly sink in and after a while it almost feels like the cushioning tries to hug you. Also, they're hand made in Finland making the quality very very good. Don't know if there's any retailers outside Finland though.

Especially the Baron model is worth a look. Would personally go with a fabric instead of the leather, simply just looks better.

those look all excellent (especially the e15!), way above budget unfortunately…
Found a mags from an exhibit for a great price i'm gonna check tomorrow, think i will end up with one of those. The problem with sofas is the crazy lost in value as soon as they stand in your flat…so u have to be certain that they stand the test of time.

@sydney
i saw it yesterday. They do look amazing, not very comfy though and a blogger girl from insta told me that the cushions are shitty…hers are already 'crushed' after 5 months. Didn't looked that bad on the pics to be fair and i guess it's just normal for every sofa.

Anyone know a good (/cheap) loft conversion company London or surrey, Big job, but the first quotes at about 100k. I think after we leave the EU extensions and conversions going to get more expensive. Hope the UK yoots are learning bricklaying.
