Autumn is upon us, and before long we’ll be gardening in the morning frost, lighting our fires and slow cooking on the stove as the shorter, cooler days of winter set in. At this time of year, so much of our time is spent inside and with so many occasions to welcome guests in the home it’s the perfect moment to consider renewing or updating your living room furniture.

Enter Pamela Miri who has been busy immersing herself in the Cotswolds in the last four years at the helm of Stroud’s bespoke sofa business, Sofas and Stuff. Pamela & her team Nadia & Janet are passionate about the Gloucestershire countryside and the local community and regularly welcome both locals and customers from far afield at their beautiful Piano Factory showroom. Here they host festivals, art exhibitions and events when not helping customers pick out their bespoke furniture pieces.

Indeed, Sofas and Stuff is the home of gorgeous, classic British-made furniture. Every sofa, chair or bed they create has been lovingly crafted using the finest fabrics and materials. With Pamela and her staff’s collective years of experience in Furniture & Interior Design, you can get expert advice on how to choose the perfect piece for your home. And fortunately so, for with so much choice of shape, colour and fabric to choose from, picking the perfect bespoke furniture for you can be a tricky business! Cue 3 top tips to help you focus your needs and ensure lasting wow factor:

1. Choose Lasting Designs.

With so much furniture available on the high street today, it can be easy to plump for something that’s low in cost and high in the fashion stakes. Think carefully about how long you want to own this item- a beautiful piece of bespoke, hand-crafted and British made furniture has heirloom qualities and classic pieces can transform any room.

2. Colour.

When to be sensible, when to be bold? Bright colours in sofas or beds can work surprisingly well, especially in softer, neutral spaces. But remember colour evokes mood, and for a good night’s sleep, for a bed, a quieter shade is always a good idea. At Sofas and Stuff, Pamela and her team can listen to your needs, talk you through their range and offer impeccable advice over a coffee.

3. Think Space.

Changing the layout of your living room can inject something fresh. Choosing a corner sofa instead of a two-seater and armchair combination is a great way to modernize your living space. At Sofas and Stuff you can arrange for Pamela or one of her team to visit you in your home and offer their professional advice on how you can lift a room through a few simple changes. Perfect!

Sofas and Stuff in Stroud have a selection of beautiful, timeless sofas, beds and chairs at prices to suit every budget. With a quick turnaround time on certain pieces, you can even receive delivery of your new sofa in just 7 days.

Pamela and her team are available over the phone or in their beautiful showroom for advice, a cup of coffee or just to have a natter. Pop in to the showroom at Woodchester Mill in Stroud, visit their website or drop them a line on 01453 700812 today.
