Choosing a designer sofa is a bit like choosing a life partner. In an ideal world, you’ll fall in love at first sight and be totally comfortable together, whatever the occasion. Just like real life, it’s rarely that straightforward. Luckily, there are great designers out there to help.
Much loved for its combination of both form and function, Scandinavian design brings elegance and practicality to any space. With its collection of authentic Danish designer sofas and other furniture, Danish Design Co is a hotbed of iconic living room looks, both past and present. Plus, virtually all of their sofas are modular, can be customised with leather or fabric upholstery (with removable covers) and made firmer or softer according to your personal preference. Here are ten of their stylish sofas for introducing some Scandinavian chic to your living room, whatever your needs may be.
1. Small living rooms
Perfect for smaller spaces, the Lift’s elegant brushed stainless steel legs and clean lines add lightness to its look. This modular sofa’s built-in lifting mechanism means each backrest can be individually raised to give neck support when needed, gliding back down in one easy movement when not.
2. Big spaces
If you have a large space to fill, the Dacapo is the way to do it. This highly modular super sofa comes in an enormous selection of corner, centre and chaise longue sections, plus there are a host of armrests, cushions and stools so you can get creative and comfortable.
Need flexibility? The Playground could be for you. Simply move the cushions around on this sofa-cum-daybed and you can get comfy to work, rest or play. The back blocks have a patented non-slip underside to hold them in place but are light enough for a child to lift. Clever, eh?
4. Making a statement
In Japanese, Haiku is a form of poetry, where much is expressed in a few single lines. Here, Danish/Italian design duo Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi create an intimate interior that invites reflection and refuge. With its delicate legs it seems to almost hover above the ground.
Removable backrests, a light structure and weatherproof fabric make the Link by Diphano a great outdoor sofa. Not only does it look gorgeous, it’s built to last and easy to maintain.
6. A formal look
The structural yet fluid design of the BM2213 sofa makes this a timeless classic that has found a home in embassies, executive offices, minister’s cabinets, upscale hotels and elite homes around the world.
7. A casual look
Create your own cocoon of comfort with triangular cushions, lumbar bolsters, main cushions, armrests and neck bolsters. Go for different colours and fabric designs when choosing your cushions to really personalise this contemporary style.
8. Big families
Maximise your seating capacity with the open-ended, family-friendly Fatty. A sprawling sofa with low backrests and armrests and a deep seat, it’s a practical but stylish way to kick back with the whole family.
9. A little luxury
The Delphi’s soft leather, clean lines and tufted design are the epitome of great Danish design and classic Erik Jørgensen style. Beautiful upholstery details and stitching, and a choice of leather, fabric or oak for the plinth are small touches that make a big difference.
10. Something different
A cosy two-seater, the iconic Poet sofa’s button detail and high curved back bring a touch of Victoriana to its distinctly Scandinavian style.
Shopping tip: All Danish Design Co sofas also come with a price guarantee that means if you find the same sofa in Singapore for less, they’ll either match the price or give you a credit note for the difference after purchase (terms and conditions apply).
