1. Castlebay Sofa

top Ten Sofa - Castlebay

Choosing our Number One top spot was tricky, but in the end we’ve gone for the sofa that pleased the majority of us. As a Harris Tweed sofa, the Castlebay already scores points for being beautifully British and having the allure and heritage that only Harris Tweed can bring. The quintessential English Chesterfield is individually hand buttoned. This sofa will never look out of place, and with feather filled seat cushions will be a source of comfort for many years to come. We’ve seen it in both the blue (Granite Herringbone) which is on our Morecambe shop floor and the lighter multi-coloured grey (Bracken Herringbone) as shown above. It might not be everyone’s absolute favourite, but it’s a definite crowd pleaser – we can’t find anyone who dislikes this sofa! For this reason alone we’re making it our number one sofa.
