A (Very) Useful Guide For How To Design Your Own Sofa


As consumers we are increasingly demanding and there are more and more areas where bespoke design and customisation are coming into play, to make our lives easier and to allow us free reign to perfect and personalise our individual purchases. So welcome to Nabru, where you can design your own sofa and be lounging on it in your living room within 24 hours.

When buying a sofa, comfort, style and practicality are foremost in your thoughts, but every home is different and everybody’s individual needs are different. At Nabru we believe you have the right to invest in a sofa and have it exactly how you want it, so we have designed a package where you don’t need to compromise on colour, fabric, shape or size and you can design a sofa that suits your room space and complements your room design.

There’s no excuses now, because you are in control, so here’s our very useful guide for ensuring your sofa is the perfect fit in every sense.

  1. Choose a sofa type

Sometimes a room layout means a sofa type suggests itself, or maybe you plan to rearrange the furniture to change your sofa design? Either way, our online tool allows you to start your design process by making the fundamental choice between a standard sofa (with however many seats you wish) a corner sofa or to go the whole hog with a U-shaped sofa.

  1. Choose your components

Now that you have the size and shape of your sofa you can add key components to suit your room and your tastes. We can offer you an option of five different arm styles, so you can swap and change these and see the results online. You can even decide to go ‘armless’ on one or both sides of the sofa, if you want to save a few precious inches next to a wall or maximise your seating space.

You also have 80 different fabrics to choose from and can also decide between steel or wooden feet. All the time, the total price of the sofa is updating, increasing and decreasing in real time, so you can track the difference each choice makes and have a running total as you build your sofa design.

  1. Customise your sofa

The final step is to add the little details that really make your sofa unique, such as choosing the colour from a choice of 75. You can even go for a two-tone design if you wish to. You can also choose the type and colour of your piping detail and you can use the online tool to extend one of the seats to create a chaise sofa for maximum luxury and indulgence. Don’t worry, the price will update accordingly and if that’s one step too far, you can just remove it.

That’s all there is to it, and because you put the sofa together yourself, we can quickly grab all the separate components you have chosen and prepare your package for next day delivery. Designing your sofa with Nabru really is a great way to satisfy all your key objectives; to find a sofa that perfectly suits your home and to make it as cost-effectively as possible. So get your creative head on and design away today.
