A little about sofology

We think choosing a new role and choosing a new sofa have a lot in common. Your old one feels comfy, you're used to it, and you know exactly where you fit. But a new job - or a new sofa - holds so much potential. Pick the right one and you'll never look back. You want to feel comfortable, but with enough going on to keep you right on the edge of your seat. Our team is always growing, and we're constantly shuffling up on the sofa to make room for the newest member of the Sofology family.

Founded over 30 years ago, we're true sofa specialists. So much more than just a piece of furniture, we know that a sofa is the one thing that truly turns our customer's houses into homes.There's a lot at stake when it comes to guiding our customers to make the right choice for them - that's why our customer journey is unique in the sofa market. That means no 'ends next Sunday sales.
