The Best in Corner Lounge Suites

Corner lounge suites are a great option when you want plenty of seating for family and friends but don’t want too much floor space taken off.

Corner sofas can take less space than a suite with a two-seater and a recliner.

Make it uniquely yours. Select the perfect size, shape, and colour for your room. There’s a wide range of seat and back cushion fills available as well as the option to go for timber or metal legs.

Plus, you can even convert the Hudson Lounge Suite to a sofa bed!

The Best Sofa Bed in NZ

Sofa beds are a fantastic option if you have guests sleepover occasionally and you need a super comfy lounge suite.

However, the drawback of most sofa beds is that they are bulkier than average couches due to the hidden mattress and mechanism to pull it out.

Enter the Bayley 3 +2.5 Seater. Made from high-quality fabric that can be of any colour or material of your choosing, this gorgeous lounge suite is a pure statement piece.

With an elegantly structured shape, the Bayley features a comfortable wide-arm design.

Proudly handcrafted here in New Zealand, the Bayley comes with a premium bi-fold mechanism with a 120mm innerspring mattress that promises a peaceful slumber.

3 Tips on how to choose a lounge suite

Before you settle down on a lounge suite, it’s important to consider the below seven factors that ensure you find a suite that perfectly matches your living room aesthetic and your requirements.

The room size and shape: Measure the sofa you have in mind and mark the dimensions of your living room and floor with string to get an idea of how it will fit.

Get inspired by the latest decorating trends –  choose a lounge suite to match your style and decor. 

Joinery: Whether you buy a lounge suite made of fabric or leather, the joinery of the lounge suite remains essential whether you buy a sofa set that’s made of fabric or leather.

While the joinery might not be so evident it’s important to go through the specs thoroughly.

Our sales staff can help you with this if you visit our Stratford or New Plymouth stores, or if you shop online, you can find this information on the product sheet.

Consider your Budget: A lounge suite is undoubtedly one of the most expensive items in your living room so it’s important to find a set that matches your budget.
