Buying a Sofa or Chair from Oldrids & Downtown



Will it fit? There's plenty of choice..

Crucially, ensure you invest in a sofa that can physically fit in your room and will comfortably suit it's designated space. We have a range of sofa types available at Oldrids & Downtown. Two-seater sofas are popular for smaller properties or as part of a larger suite, three-seaters can provide the main seating element in a room and corner sofas are great for large spaces.

Cushion Filling

The filling of your sofa defines the level of support and maintenance involved in your sofa. Consider the following: Foam upholstery is fantastic for a firm and supportive sit with minimum upkeep, but may lose a little volume over time, fibre wrap provides medium support with the occassional plumping & turning, whilst feather is the softest and requires regular plumping and turning.

Fabric or Leather?

Upholstered fabric offers a brilliant range of colour options, as well as being extremely durable and can withstand 'family life'. Our sofas and chairs are often also available in leather, a natural product with a soft, supple and elegant finish. Both surfaces are easy to look after, but compliment homes differently. Leather must be away from a direct heat source.

All shapes and sizes

Sofas and chairs come in all shapes and sizes, ensuring you get the comfortable seating you desire. For example, a fixed back sofa offers a smart, clean finish with formal lines, however the back is sprung and has firmer seating, whilst a cushion back provides a more conventional, softer finish. We also have a range of snugglers, corner sofas and recliners.
