DFS Sofas: A Comfortable Review

I recently purchased a couple of 3 seater sofas from DFS. That sentence implies that this was a casual purchase, but actually this was probably the most exciting thing to happen to me for about 6 months. I had been BEGGING my husband to let me have new sofas as I was so sick of my old one, but I did have my doubts about DFS. I do see the occasional moan on Twitter, and the constant "DFS Sale" adverts can be a bit unsettling, but I honestly have to say that I am SO HAPPY with the sofas.

I bought 2 of the 3-seater sofas from the Revive range, both for the living room. I bought them in cream with the view to accessorizing them with a few throws and cushions. I got the sofas on finance via the DFS website which meant that they were totally interest free (why don't more companies offer this?!) and I was given an estimated delivery date as soon I had signed the finance agreement online (which took minutes and was super simple).

The store phoned me around 10 days later to let me know that the sofas were finished (they are made to order rather than being pre-made and stored in a damp warehouse for months) and to confirm a delivery date. And do you know what? THE DELIVERY ARRIVED ON THE CONFIRMED DELIVERY DATE! The delivery team was totally amazing and very clean. I was petrified that I would end up with scratches on the wall and mud traipsed through the house but the delivery guys were very polite and put down sheets to avoid making any mess at all. They fully assembled the sofas and treated them very well, and they took away all of the packaging after carefully unpacking them.

I bought a couple of lovely soft throws from John Lewis, some velvety cushions from IKEA and then accessorized the window with some fairy lights, peonies, and candles in hurricane jars. I also purchased arm protectors from DFS because I have a cat and I thought he might decide to make the sofa arms into scratching posts. They've been really handy because I remove them if I have people coming over, but the sofas are protected from coffee mug rings and scuffs. I would definitely invest in a pair of you have the opportunity. I absolutely love my new sofas and the quality of what I received is excellent; my living room is totally transformed! Special thanks to DFS for treating me so kindly!
