About this deal

In terms of fabric, think about how your sofa will be used and who is using it with you e.g. young children or pets. If the sofa is going to be the prime everyday seating in a main room such as a living room, then you might like to consider a hard wearing, man-made fabric with additional stain protection treatment, or a good quality leather, for durability. If the sofa is going in a secondary room such as a conservatory, spare room or office, then you can afford to be a little more adventurous in your choice of fabric, as the sofa will be subject to much less wear and tear. DFS has teamed up with a range of Exclusive Brands to create beautiful inspiring designer sofas for everyone, available exclusively at DFS, including Joules, French Connection, Country Living, House Beautiful and Grand Designs. The cushion covers are from H&M, bought last year. I am considering swapping them out for some palm leaf covers, but can’t decide if that is taking it a step too far with the botanical theming – what do you think? I think the French ConnectionDFS sofais one of the besthigh streetsofas out there for a clean modern look that won’t break the bank and is also super comfortable and durable. 2023 Update: Remember to consider doors, windows and radiators too, as well as the overall size of the room. Be aware of the depth of the sofa if you’re buying for a small room – the length may be smaller but the depth of the seat rarely changes from a large to small sofa.

I find that the permanence of hanging prints on the wall actually scares me away from doing it, and as a result many of our walls are rather bare. This was my first time creating any sort of wall feature, and I had a lot of fun planning it. Although the French ConnectionDFS sofais a large sofa, it gives off a very slim appearance. The arms are slender, it’s not a hefty sofa, thezinc sofafeels light and balanced. Theclean linesand slender legs of the DFS French ConnectionZinc sofareally help to emphasise the space and flow in the room. Being able to see the floor underneath makes a huge different to how open the room feels. Colour and style are so subjective so get to understand what you like. Do you like colour harmony where similar tones live side by side peacefully? Do you like it when colours clash and surprise you?How important is trying before buying? Why is it important to go into store and try sofas, rather than just buying online? Squishiness aside, I really like the sofa’s fabric. It comes in lots of different colours and a couple of fabric types, but the one I’ve chosen has a lovely tweedy feel to it. It looks and feels much more expensive than it is, which is always a good thing if you’re on a budget.

We quite liked the calming atmosphere our mini jungle added, and so we decided to expand on our botanical styling even further. Ask about the maintenance of the sofa you’re interested in. You need to understand the performance of the fabric / cover and the ‘sit’ of the interior filling. For example, fibre and feather fillings provide a softer sit but need daily plumping to keep them looking good. Foam doesn’t require much maintenance but provides a firmer sit. Leather is likely to stretch, crease and mark with use, very much like a pair of leather shoes, which is a normal characteristic but the ‘lived in’ look is not to everyone’s taste if you like a very ‘precise’ look. If well looked after - for example, through plumping cushions regularly and brushing or hoovering fabrics requiring higher maintenance – a product should last for many years. At DFS we offer a 15-year guarantee on frames and frame springs for all of our sofas, together with and two-year guarantee on stitching and mechanical parts used on recliners. The average customer replaces their sofa every seven years or so, but this is largely due to changing trends and interior styles, rather than the wear of the product.The DFS Zinc sofa fits beautifully into our living room and is just the right size for me to sit on with my feet up. Everyone else has to sit on the floor and lean against the wall obviously if I do that, but for during the day when I am ‘working from home’, or quiet evenings when Belle is practising make up looks in her bedroom, it’s perfect for a casual spot of reclining.

There are a wide range of fabric options for the French Connection Zinc, including some very luxurious and on-trend velvets. We opted for the durable, family friendly grey combination fabric. The French Connection Zinc sofa bed is available in a choice of three materials and fourteen colours - from summery blush pink to sophisticated forest green - offering options to suit any décor, whether you have a thing for pale pastels, vibrant brights, or understated neutrals. I’ve got a new sofa from DFS – the Zinc 2 seater sofa, designed by French Connection. You see how comfy yet stylish I look? DFS has more than 120 stores across the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands and Spain and employs over 4,000 people. The sofa comes with two cushions – the blue and white ones – and then I’ve added my own contrasting cushions for a bit of extra pizazz. (And to match the phone – yellow is my favourite colour.)

Zinc Sofa bed

We have now had our French ConnectionDFS sofafor over five years, and it is still used every day as our mainliving roomsofa. The botanical prints are all from Desenio. The concrete plant pot is from Geo Fleur, and the air plant is from MONTI. The copper pineapple is from Oliver Bonas, we usually store lighters for candles and other small bits and bobs in there.

Think about what you’re going to do with your old sofa, so that you can clear and ready the room for when your new sofa arrives. At DFS, customers purchasing a new sofa can opt for their old sofa to be taken away for free by the British Heart Foundation, to be sold in one of their homewares stores across the UK, with all proceeds from the sale of these sofas going to the charity. Lauren Harris, DFS Senior Designer, commented: “We’re delighted to have added the French Connection Zinc sofa bed to our range. This new model offers multifunctionality while still maintaining the sofa’s cool and contemporary design, so you don’t have to compromise on the look you want to achieve for your space. Choosing your new sofa is no easy feat - it's a real investment that's going to be with you for many years. To really get to the crux of what you need to consider when looking for your new sofa, we caught up with the team at DFS. Our french connection fabric covers have always survived a machine wash on a low setting and scrub up pretty well afterwards. I cannot vouch for the velvet covers, though, as we don’t have experience of those. If you’re in rented accommodation and can’t decorate the walls or floors - plus you think you may move in a few years - it’s worth considering a neutral colour as it’s more transferable to a new interior. This may be a compromise but you can always create colour interest with accessories.However, we liked the light and uncluttered feel that living with smaller sofas brought. We were wary about upsetting the balance of ourliving roomwith a sizeablenew sofathat could potentially take over the room and become the first, and biggest, thing you notice about the space. DFS French Connection Zinc Originally, we had been pining after a deep green velvet to fit with our botanical theme. But in the end, we decided that a statement sofa like that would probably work better in a smaller size, and we really wanted as large a sofa as possible to give us growing room and space to sprawl. Fabric sofasseemed like the safest choice for a young family. Choosing between fabrics was the toughest choice of this whole project! If you pop into yourlocal DFS store, they have a whole book of fabric swatches to choose from – which means you can really make a French ConnectionDFS sofayour own.
