Sofa planners


A good cushion is the very essence of comfort. That notion guided us when we created the GRÖNLID multi-cushion design. Arrange them into a soft, snug embrace, find the right back support, or why not build a fortress? The sofa itself is just as flexible, thanks to its sectional design. Either way you go, you’ll be surrounded by cosy covers where the cotton used comes from more sustainable sources – and they’re washable, too.


The VIMLE sofa series has sections that can be combined as you like into a customised solution for you and your home – and as your life changes, you can have this sofa change with you. This soft yet firm sofa will have a long life since the seat cushions are filled with high resilience foam that gives good support for your body and quickly regains its original shape when you get up.


With a SÖDERHAMN modular sofa, you can make your sofa as comfy as it can be. Creating a comfortable combination is easy with deep seats and moveable back cushions. So you can sit back and relax, whilst also knowing that all of the materials from the sofa can be recycled - even though you won’t have to worry about that for years.


What does sofa comfort mean to you? Soft cushions? Deep seats? An ergonomic backrest, both relaxing and with posture support? Or just a general feeling of not wanting to get up, ever? Then LIDHULT is for you. A sofa collection to make binge-watching, family gatherings, TV dinners, and lazy days equally enjoyable. From the bottom of the pocket springs to the top of the headrest – LIDHULT is here to sweep you off your feet.


VALLENTUNA is a modular sofa series that allows you to create a personalised seating solution. Extra sleeping guests or just want to keep the mess out of sight? Choose the sofa bed or the storage sofa module. How about having some personal space, without having to go to a different room in the house? Just rearrange the modules and have your own sofa for one. No matter the size of your room or family, the possibilities are endless.
