The best leather sofas in the UK: quality and comfort


After a great bed frame and mattress, the next biggest homeware purchase you’re likely to make is your sofa.

It’s the backdrop to everything from a game night with your friends, to kicking back with the papers, to devouring the latest box set or Hollywood blockbuster, so it has to be the comfiest seat in the house. The world of sofas is vast and confusing, with everything from love seats to L-shaped designs to make the most of space.

And when it comes to upholstery, you can choose from velvet with anti-stain technology, to cool canvas and leather options that only get better with age.

In fact, leather is one of the most popular options for sofa covers; It’s comfortable, durable, suitable for friends and family, and you can find a style to match any interior concept. It adds an elegant element to a room (if you want to dial in a room’s decadence, just add a Chesterfield sofa for that member’s bar aesthetic) and is easily kept spotless with a quick wipe of a microfiber cloth.

If you’ve been thinking about buying a leather sofa but are feeling uninspired by your own searches, we’re here to help with a roundup of the best models we’ve spied.

From corner sofas with built-in chaise longues, to three-seaters to spruce up the hallway, here’s our hot version of the best leather sofas to spend your money on.

Favorites from Chelsea Darwin Grand Sofa

Favorites from Chelsea

With its deep seats and crumpled look, the Darlings of Chelsea sofa looks like it’s been part of your decor for years, even though it comes straight out of the box (that’s just our little secret). Instead of a one-size-fits-all sofa, you can play with the textures, colors, and finishes to get the perfect look for you.

The Darwin range comes in a choice of sizes, including footstools, and leather types from ‘family friendly’ and ‘matte finish’ to ‘super soft’ and ‘natural marks and grain’ if you want a story behind your furniture. Then there are different skin colors, from light brown to dark chocolate, options for contrast piping and you can also change the color of the feet.

When you spend so much on a piece of furniture, it’s only natural that you want all of the elements to be exactly how you envisioned them.

Prices start from £2,020.

A leather sofa may have old-fashioned connotations, but World of Leather’s Komodo design brings things firmly into the 21st century. Relax in the deep bucket seats and plush leather upholstery while you charge your devices with the built-in USB ports on the armrests.

The center seat folds down into a mini coffee table with cup holders so you’re never in danger of getting thirsty, and when it’s time to kick back, adjust the lounge chairs for a seat that’s so comfortable that you’re really having trouble getting out of it.

We love the teal blue hue, a refreshing change from the usual brown and black.

Swoon Editions Willem three seater sofa


London’s hotels and restaurants are great inspiration for your own decor, and this plush sofa looks like it’s been plucked straight from a five-star resort in the capital.

This option comes in three colorways: tan, slate gray and our choice, a rich olive green. You can also swap out the legs so they have a brass finish – it’s the details that matter.

Leader Lifestyle Sammy Clic Clac 3 seater faux leather sofa bed

leader lifestyle

If you are looking for a sofa, why not make it a sofa bed? It’s always handy to have a spare bed when guests come to visit, and the upgrade usually doesn’t cost more than a standard couch.

For leather lovers looking to make a solid investment, check out this high-back, clic-clac style sofa that works wonderfully as a seat during the day but converts into a rather chic bed when needed. Spacious enough for one lucky guest, just add sheets and bedding to make it sleep ready. We also like the diamond stitching on the back cushions, which give a touch of Chesterfield without the price tag that comes with it.
