If you've been Pinterest mood-boarding your dream living room since 2010 (guilty), there's no doubt that you're constantly on the lookout for the best corner sofas to complete your relaxation sanctuary. Corner sofas, also known as L-shape sofas, are one of the best styles of sofa to add to your living room thanks to the utter comfort they provide, and incredible design. If you choose the right one, that is.

Much like the trending bouclé sofa, corner sofas are a home decor staple, and have become a preference for those looking to stylishly fill the corner of their living room. Why? Well, most importantly, they look good. Particularly styles from designer brands such as Soho Home, and Swoon, as well as old faithful brands such as John Lewis, which offer sofas that perfectly balance style and practically, and are guaranteed to to see us through the next hundred years (at least).

Wondering whether an L-shape sofa is the best choice for your home? Corner sofas are most suited to informal living rooms, as they're perfect for lounging and embarking on a five-hour Netflix binge. Due to their size, we recommend placing a corner sofa in a larger living room to avoid crowding, but they're also great if you're dealing with an awkwardly shaped space as they can fit perfectly in a corner.

From stylish designer options from Soho Home to budget-friendly picks from Argos, Grazia's guide to the best corner sofas is the only place you need to shop online. Look out for plenty of sofa deals below where you can get great discounts on the original price thanks to spring savings.

Are corner sofas still on trend?

Speaking to Sarah Link, marketing director at furniture retailer La Redoute, she explained 'With sofa trends continuously evolving, the current sofa-scape is a reflection of timeless design and innovative features that can become the perfect addition to every home.

'Sofas are now taking centre stage in our living spaces, with modular sections multiplying and the armchair being swapped for the loveseat. It’s clear that consumers are basking in the joy of lounging. The trending sofa shapes of 2024 are a combination of classic and contemporary influences, with the corner sofa predicted to be the most popular.

'When it comes to shape, modular sofas, such as the [So’Home Florence Scatterback Woven Right Facing Corner Sofa & Footstool]{href='https://www.laredoute.co.uk/ppdp/prod-350265325.aspx' target='_blank' rel='noreferrer noopener sponsored nofollow'} remain high in demand due to its easy-to-handle components, allowing for customisable arrangements that adjust well to various room layouts.

'Additionally, rounded and curved designs are making a comeback this year, showcasing a softer look and feel to a room, as well as encouraging a sense of comfort and warmth.'

Do corner sofas come in two parts?

Most corner sofas come in two parts for easy transportation but always check on the page what the transit details are. Link continues, 'Corner sofas coming in two parts offer versatility that traditional one-piece designs may lack. The ability to separate the sofa into two sections allows for easier transportation, especially in homes with narrow entrances such as hallways. Moreover, it can simplify maintenance by allowing each section to be moved individually, making it easier to access and clean hard-to-reach areas.'

'Overall, corner sofas with two parts are a practical choice for those seeking convenience and adaptability in their living spaces.'
