Grand integrity

Choosing a new sofa is an exciting opportunity to upgrade your décor. Whether you’re deciding on a model for a contemporary or traditional space, there are so many styles and fabrics to choose from that it can be hard to know where to start. Thankfully, Grand Designs has collaborated with DFS to create a collection of beautiful, sustainable sofas that will look sensational in your interior space while caring for the environment.

Blending the style integrity of Grand Designs and the upholstery expertise of DFS, the two brands have joined forces to help homeowners take a responsible, eco-friendly approach to modern life. Featuring clean, contemporary lines in sumptuous fabrics, each sofa is thoughtfully designed to make a striking statement.

Generously proportioned and with a luxurious deep seat, the range puts style and substance on equal footing: each cushion is filled with a material made from recycled plastics which retains its shape while being exceptionally comfortable, too.

Sofas for a sustainable future

At the heart of the new Grand Designs range sits a big ambition: to create pioneering sofas that are stylish, super comfy and beautifully made from innovative and sustainable materials. Each part of the sofa has been carefully considered for its ability to reduce the impact on the environment and is either made of recycled, ethically sourced materials, or is more easily recycled at the end of its life. 

The Grand Designs sofas feature fabrics weaved from recycled yarns, cushions filled with a material made from recycled plastics, handmade frames that are crafted from sustainable timber, plus recyclable springs and packaging. And because they’re available exclusively at DFS, the sofas are not only stylish, comfy and sustainable, they are affordable, too.

Seating to suit your style

While each piece in the DFS x Grand Designs range has been designed with sustainability as a priority, there is a sofa and chair to suit every living room. Whether you covet an architectural edge, a flexible modular layout, a luxe Mid Century vibe or a contemporary tailored look, the four models are available in a choice of fabrics (chenille, weave, velvet) and varied palette of colours from pale neutrals to rich terracotta to help you tailor the sofa to suit your style.

And with prices starting from as little as £449, you can give your home a dash of Grand Designs sustainable style without breaking the bank.
