Trying To Track Down An Unusual Corner Sofa / Chaise For A Small Flat.

Recommended Posts

Mods: Please move after suitable exposure if considered off-topic.

Been looking for a small sofa / spare bed that can pass through a very narrow entrance. Came across just what I need on eBay, but missed the end of the auction. Disappointed, but thought I'd find another. Spent many hours trawling the Web without any joy. While Googling came across a request for transport quotes from the auction winner:

http://www.shiply.com/transport/2-Piece-L-Shaped-Corner-Leather-Group/277429/

Noticed he's bought other furniture so maybe a landlord fitting out some flats. Thought I might contact him and make an offer. The destination postcode on Shiply is W11 4UR which covers 167 to 171 Holland Park Avenue, London and his first name is Mark. Any thoughts on how I might find his email address?

Alternatively, I'm looking for a source for a similar corner group with a low back and completely armless (needs to hook around narrow door-frame with boxed-in passage beyond).

Any help would be much appreciated (spent many hours on this already).

Send a message to the seller and ask them directly...

Yes, I've been in touch with the seller. He's sold it for a friend and says it's end-of-line clearance. He did say he'd try and find out more. I'm not cheeky enough to ask him to put me in touch with the buyer (against eBay rules?).

You could try these - they come in bits and are guaranteed to fit through virtually any tight space. There are various fabrics/styles/sizes inc. armless, + sofa bed option.

Haven't seen them in the flesh so to speak but there's a showroom where you can try before you buy.

You can customise your own from various modules/options and delivery is apparently quick.

You're not really going to put that in your house are you?

Thanks; I've already had a look at them; I'll take another look.

No, it's my landlord's house.

Oh. I've heard about you tenants destroying the decor.

What's the obsession with corner sofas? Unless you're lying down, they are incredible uncomfortable. Might as well buy a bed and put it in the living room.

Passing fad that will be ridiculed 20 years from now methinks....

Many sofas come with an option to have removable armrests. It's usually 2 bolts either side and then the seat/back will be just as small as any armless sofa.

Ours came with removable arms and it's a real bonus for moving house. I'd definitely buy the same again.

The wife bought a couple of them. Nice enough but actually a bit awkward and not very versatile. These split apart thankfully, but it still doesn't work very well.

I will concede that they are better if you have a parter. You can both recline and she lovingly in your lap. Not difficult for a BJ to ensure either. :D

Well that all depends on the relationship really I guess.

For me though, these things struggle to work well with my living room design, which is far more important.
