Sofas of the future!
Innovative design is something that we all look for when we want to make our everyday lives more simple but there's some essentials that have changed very little since they were invented. Sofas are a case in point, while there have been minor adjustments to the models, there's yet to be a complete design overhaul. With 2013 on the way, maybe it's time to start thinking about modifying the way we make this family favourite:
A brilliant bouncy sofa
For a young family, someone should take inspiration from the trampoline and make a couch that promises hours of fun. You could leave the kids on it for hours, get a little exercise yourself and know that you'll only be a few bounces away when you need to reach for your cup of tea.
Sofas that are made from stain and hole proof materials would be great for those who want a utility look and are adverse to mess. Vulcanised rubber could be great for those batman fans who want a sofa that simply wipes clean.
A model that moulds to your shape
For the ultimate in comfort, making sofas out of the same material as memory foam mattresses would mean you could really sink in when you sit back and relax. Whether you're laid out or snuggled up and sat, a memory foam sofa would probably be the most comfortable couch in the world.
A furry favourite
For those who want to be cosy when they veg out for the night, a sofa make from fluffy (fake) fur is the ideal option to keep you toasty. Great to sink into and really snuggle up, this would be the ultimate sofa for those who want luxurious comfort.
Heston Blumenthal has probably already invented his one but the edible sofa would great for kids of all ages. Probably best if it's not made of chocolate and with edible elements rather than being a sofa that's eaten away to nothing, cushions filled with custard or cream and arms made of gummy sweets could give your home a Willy Wonka feel for real!
While all these options could be great fun, keeping sofas conventional is probably the best bet in the short term. That doesn't mean there isn't plenty of choice on offer though. From corner units and recliners to fabric sofas by CSL there's something available to make the most of your home.
