I get what your saying, however the majority of people pay for their mobile phones etc on a monthly basis and most mobiles are more than the price of this sofa when new. Point being, the vast majority of the purchases people make are paid monthly, mobiles, car insurance, car tax, council tax, etc etc. It's just the world we live in. If everyone had to pay £800 for a mobile when the new one comes out, we'd all be flashing a 3310

There are a few common types of seat interiors:

Hollowfibre - this is very soft seat interior that you 'sink' into. It will wrap around you and is very comfortable. But it takes a huge amount of effort to keep it feeling like that. You have to 'reverse' the fact you have sunk into the hollowfibre and vigorously plump the cushions back up (ideally every day).

Foam - this is (usually) much firmer. It will hold its shape very well and does not require plumping. It is maintenance-free, though you can turn the seats over every now and again to help the shape and comfort of the seat. If you need something more supportive then this is a great seat.

Foam Core - this is a mixture of the two interiors above. It is a smaller cut of foam that has been wrapped in hollowfibre. It has the benefit of the foam holding the shape of the seat and the hollowfibre softening up the seat again. It is generally considered the best of both worlds of the two interiors above. It needs only a little maintenance (plump maybe every couple of weeks), and even then it is not a vigorous plumping that it needs.

Cold Cure Foam - This is the stuff that is in car seats and is phenomenal at holding its shape and comfort. It is firmer still, and more supportive, than the foam above. You'll pay more for this type of foam but it is usually guaranteed for a long time.

Pocket Sprung - Much rarer, but some corner sofas will have pocket sprung interiors. These are very good at holding their shape, while still being soft. These will be the most expensive interiors, but you will be able to find some within a £2k budget if you are after fabric, probably not if you are after leather.


Again, go for your personal comfort as this is the most important thing. Whatever is most comfortable for you, make sure you pay close attention to what your salesperson tells you is the best way to plump and turn it and make sure you do it!

fiber foam will last few months. then seating aera will be flat.
Foam with a fibre wrap - should stand up ok to be fair...
Unbranded fibre back, as said above it will flatten and not hold shape after 6 months

Credit culture...true but i hate that phrase. i was brought up being told if you cant afford it dont buy it..!WAIT!
Bought M&S sofa, after 5 years was as new.
Unfortunately had to get bigger and different configuration, went to Dfs and after 16 months, it's already out of shape and was £2k.
I will be buying M&S next time.

If you are broke (even if you aren't...) you should go to Ebay/Gumtree and pick up same quality sofa for £5-£50.
Saves you humongous amount of $$$ , saves the other person throwing out perfectly good sofa & one less sofa which is going to landfill to rot forever!
Win Win for everyone.

If you have to take a credit to buy a sofa... there is something seriously wrong with your priorities..

Right on, it sickens me people on this site judging others and offering their own brand of advice.

I wonder if you took their advice and ‘it went wrong’ could you claim off them for offering unregulated financial advice?
Love it! Fits perfectly with my outside living room area.

whilst Ebay/Gumtree can work for some people when buying 2nd hand, you don't know the full condition of the item or the seller (buy cheap buy twice). i wanted a 3 seater but price vs condition was questionable. i eventually got an ex-display model from DFS for £500 and it was delivered a week later (usually 4 weeks+ as they are made to order). sometimes credit can be a good thing when businesses go bust as cash isn't traceable and helps out with credit scoring for a mortgage or even a job

This is usually a result of a customer ignoring a salespersons advice about cushion interiors and their upgrades, thinkin the salesperson is just trying to get more money out of the customer.

I used to work for DFS and even some of the expensive furniture, £2k and over, can be on display with interiors that will flatten (with vigorous maintenance just to get the ticket price down. The salesperson will always suggest high quality interiors but often it goes ignored by customers who misjudge the salespersons intentions

since you were not there when sofa was purchased, you can't speculate about my purchase.

and if customers need to upgrade to get a product to last more than 12months, think it tells all i needed to know about it!

I am pretty sure, customers expect a sofa to last more than 12 months lol
Most furniture can be bought with "0% interest". Obviously in actual fact the interest is built into the price.

So if you pay in cash, unless you get a discount for doing so, more fool you.

I'd rather have the cash in my bank than the retailer's bank, that's for sure!

Credit, like most things in life, as long as you dont abuse it, it can be a good thing.

I'm not speculating because I haven't suggested that's what you did. I'm saying, factually, many customers will forego the upgrade in favour of ignoring advice and saving a few pounds upfront.

Many people think that they can sit on fibre seats for hours at a time, not plump them up properly, and they will last more than a few months. Which is incorrect.

Also, if your seats lasted less than 12 months then you would have been within a manufacturing guarantee period so you could have told them about the issue and they would have had new interiors put in

Phones are just the same though, regardless of income everyone wants and expects to own a flagship phone that they can't afford, then they go and get it on a contract spending even more in the long run. Car insurance and tax are similar, they both cost more by paying them monthly. Everyone wants to live above their means, in most cases they're the ones keeping themselves down with higher liabilities that they've put on themselves.
Just because you can get a £800 phone on contract doesn't make it a good idea, better to stick it out for a few months with your old one, save what you would be spending on the contract and then buy one for £150 etc. outright. Get a sim only deal for £5 - £10 and your liabilities are far smaller.

Do you have a mortgage?


You're going to try and imply that buying a home with a mortgage is the same as buying a sofa that you can't afford on credit. If you really want to know I'm renting at 23 and saving to buy with a >50% deposit in the next couple of years. Any money you put into a mortgage is towards a property that you own and can then sell usually for more than your bought it for. How much will a sofa be worth even 1 year after your bought it? Anyway, I'm talking about people buying above their means just because credit allows them to. You can get a perfectly good sofa that's a couple of years old for >£200 used, houses aren't sofas; you can't get one for 75% less just because it's been lived in for a year or two.

There are some things in life you absolutely need credit for. Your mortgage for one, and IMHO, living room furniture for another.

Unless you are ok with a fabric sofa that has been peed on (very possibly), poo'd on (possibly), sweated on (definitely), smoked around (very possibly) or flatulated on (definitely) by multiple strangers with unknown approaches to personal hygiene and possibly dogs and cats over the course of a few years (well, I guess they won't smoke), buying a new sofa on credit spread over a number of years is the only option. For many people living room furniture is at least a 5 year investment, so it does make sense. If you absolutely have to buy used, then go for a leather sofa.

Horses for courses, of course.
