where to get cheapish sofas

    We are moving soon and will have no sofas to sit on when we do. We want to get some sofas just to "make do" until we get round to deciding what we want long term and spend more on them. Ideally we need 2 sofa sets - we want largish sofas and not small 2 seaters. Anyone got any good ideas where to get them? We have been to DFS and furntureland but there was not a lot that appealed. Ikea had nothing either. We looked on ebay for good condition second hand ones but no luck. We want to go shopping at the weekend to look for sofas but have run out of ideas as to where to go to look. Any suggestions? We are in London. Thanks.


    Argos do the bogof ones

    Argos ones are horrid, we moved home recentley and got one for £600, it was returned 5 times due to defects and poor quality (I know for £600 what you expect), gave up in the end went to Harveys and paid a bit more but got a much better one in the sale.

    if you want one just to make do then check out your local freecycle group

    Also looking on freecycle but so far no luck - we don't mind paying for sofas I just don't want to pay a huge amount if we are not intending to keep them.

    Homebase (aka Argos) have some OK ones that are BOGOF
    so you get two ]Lewis Sofas for £399

    edit: sorry - I only just read that you don't want small, and these are!


    landofleather do some cheap suites:thumbsup:

    we were also in this position.

    We managed to pick up 2 2-seater sofas for 20pounds on eBay - just to make do!
    Nice cream colour and washable covers so they actually looked really nice in the end (erm... still sitting on it now, months later :-D!)

    I know you want larger ones but it is definitely worth keeping an eye out there, but you will need a van to bring them home.

    land of leather if its one of their special offer suites they will deliver as soon as

    eg of a special offer 3 + 2 seater brown leather was £1200 now £400…tml or .com
    based in wales. a friend of mine was very pleased with his sofas and I bought cushions through them and i thought their prices were brilliant
