Best movie sofas for golden globe occasions
When it comes to settling down into a squishy – or otherwise – sofa for watching movies in the surrounds of your own home, comfort is definitely in the rear (as well as the eye) of the beholder. Do you prefer to sink into a body-hugging soft leather number, for instance. Or would you rather remain upright on a tight, structured frame providing posture support? Maybe you’re an inbetweener and you like a little structure but with some softness to soothe you too? Whatever your preference, you can always find further inspiration by taking a look at some of the best movie sofas we’ve listed here below, along with their movie-watching characteristics, of course.
What could be comfier when watching a movie screen than having a sofa which tilts back? This particular sofa, which is available in both a two and a three seater version, has a recliner mechanism (mechanical or manual) while you can also choose from a range of fabrics. Just watch you don’t fall asleep when you have that tilt on. If you like this, have a look at our other fabric recliners.
For a contemporary and rather sophisticated reclining sofa – one that boasts a leather bound body and a corner couch too – you’d be hard-pressed to beat the elegance of the Zara sofa. Also available in a choice of fabrics, this beautiful Italian designed recliner has raised, tubular chrome-plated feet and two headrest options (as if the footrest wasn’t luxurious enough):
G Plan Vintage sofa
An upright and firm little number with tailored lines and a single row of deeply punched buttons, the G Plan Vintage sofa from the nifty Fifty Nine Leather Range, is very mid century Mad Men. It looks terrific and doesn’t take up much space either. For those who like a lot of back support when screen viewing in earnest it’s ideal. Available in a range of leathers, fabric and either Ash, Walnut or black lacquered wood, the G Plan also provides the very stylish option of contrasting buttons.
Stressless E300 sofa
The very aptly-named Stressless E300 sofa, has been designed as either an upright or a lie-down recliner. Part of our leather sofa range, Its patented Stressless ErgoAdapt system means the seat will tilt to your specifications the minute you sit in it – without you actually having to do anything. The same happens when you lie down, making this an extremely comfortable viewing platform. Depending on how much space you have available, it can be purchased as a two seater, three seater or corner sofa and with lots of variations. It’s available in four different leathers and colours, while the Beech wooden frame can be ordered in a wood stain of your preference.
