Apologies up front as I could only narrow it down to 13 – the feature is “12 great ” and I usually prefer odd over even and 13 is unlucky for some  but hey!

This week I have hunted out 13 (whoops!) great sofas that are fun, comfortable, classic or retro there’s something for every taste and budget. Sourced mainly from here in Australia with a few friends from The USA.
