How do I style my new sofa?

How to take care of your new sofa

Once you’ve picked out a sofa and styled it to perfection, you’ll want to look after it to be sure it looks its best for as long as possible. So, let’s take a look at some of our top care tips. 

First up, make sure to keep your sofa as far away from direct sunlight as you can and not too close to heat sources, as this can cause fading over time. And nothing is worse than a flat cushion, so try to plump the seat and back cushions regularly to avoid flattening. 

When it comes to keeping your sofa clean, be sure to wipe up any spillages as soon as possible, gently dabbing or blotting with a dry cloth. Hand wash or professional clean your sofa, avoid using the washing machine as the fast speed and high heat can cause damage.
