Yoko contemporary sofa bed
When you’re having extra guests to stay, a sofa bed is a useful way of putting people up for the night without too much hassle.
If contemporary is your preferred home style, then you can’t beat the Yoko sofa bed for design, comfort and usability.
Yoko is a minimalist sofa – it doesn’t take up too much room, is perfect for a spare room or study, and is a comfortable sofa to use. When you need an extra bed for the night, it simply folds right out and turns into a flat bed. Even better, the cushions are fixed in place, so there are no bulky cushions to move or store whilst the bed is in use, as is the case with some sofa beds.
Sofa to bed
They say it makes a ‘comfy bed for one or a cosy bed for two,’ and it’s certainly a convenient style sofa bed to have in your home.
The Yoko frame is made from solid wood, with foam filling, and it’s covered in a cinnamon brown fabric.
If you’re looking for a sofa bed in time for Christmas, then Made.com have Yoko on express delivery at the reduced price of £199 (usual high street price £399). If you order by 18th November, you can take advantage of free delivery by using the code ‘FDXMAS’ at the checkout.

After the success of their first range of products at M&S in the autumn, there’s a new selection of items designed by Conran available at Marks and Spencer.
This time around, it’s hard to pick just a few favourites, as there are so many lovely pieces. Here are a few examples:
Conran Amis sofa
The large Amis sofa, with its gentle curves, is oozing in comfort. It’s available in a choice of Conran-exclusive fabrics. Some of the other pieces in the rest of the room include the Conran Brindley open shelving unit, the Conran Turned Pedastal table lamp and the Conran Kilim patchwork rug.
Conran Coleridge seating
As a change from a sofa, the contemporary modular seating units are perfect for creating your own seating arrangement. The Coleridge corner chair can be teamed with the Coleridge one seater to create small or large seating configurations. A matching Coleridge footstool is available too. We love the bold red against the wooden floor, but other colour choice options are available.
For the bedroom, Conran has designed this pure and simple Harrison white bedstead, adorned with their Spring check bedding range.

This super sleek, ultra modern sofa is in a rich aubergine purple shade and is a great statement sofa for a room.

Dali aubergine chair
We love a good sale and it’s even better when everything is on offer, rather than selected items with a sticker on them, as is the case with the Furniture Village sale.
There are lots of great discounts on all their products, including a saving of over £250 on this Dali swivel chair.
The stylish and comfortable chair has a metallic base and a smooth swivel function. It’s available in a large choice of leather upholstery colours, including aubergine, cream, black, cloud, tangerine, apple green and brown.
The Dali chair was £859, but is currently £599 in the sale.

Add warmth with a throw
It’s not exactly the warmest of weather at the moment, especially at night, and if your thoughts are turning towards autumn warmers already, then adding a throw to a sofa or bed provides a great bit of extra warmth.
This magenta pink ripple throw by KAS can be used for just that and provides a lovely bright splash of colour for a dull day or dark evening. The ripple effect is stylish and sets it apart from plain throws. When it gets really cold, why not wrap yourself up in it too?
The ripple throw in magenta costs £45 from Selfridges.

Comfy bean bag chair
Shaped like chair, but made like a beanbag, this butterfly chair by Ambient Lounge provides a comfortable seating solution.
This one is in a trendy aubergine purple colour, but they have a varied selection of other colours to choose from and lots of different designs in chairs, sofas and beanbags.
There’s currently up to 40% off Ambient Lounge at Bouf, so it’s worth looking if you’re in the market for a new seat.
The butterfly chair is usually £249, but is reduced to £149.40.

Every home needs a wow factor piece of furniture, however small or large it is. A gorgeous sofa can do the job very well and create a design statement in a room, plus it provides a practical piece of furniture to use and enjoy.
This stunning berry red two seater sofa has a wow factor in terms of colour (put it in a neutral room, and you’ll have a focal point and new colour to add to the interior design scheme) and in terms of design (it’s contemporary, but the smooth lines add a great retro feel too).
The Jonah sofa is designed by British designer, James Harrison, who shot to fame after winning the Elle Decoration Young Designer of the Year competition in 2007. It’s well made, comfortable and upholstered in a linen mix fabric.
This lovely two seater red sofa is available exclusively from Made.com, where it’s priced at only £499 (the equivalent high street price would be £1,499). If berry red doesn’t do it for you, the sofa is also available in a classic warm grey.
Other matching pieces are available too, including a Jonah three seater sofa (£599) and Jonah armchair (£375).

There are some great sofas available that combine the retro 1950s style with contemporary design and this is just one of them. The simple and elegant lines of this Mistral sofa, which is exclusive to Heal’s, with its buttoned back cushions and small cone oak feet come together to provide a stylish and comfortable sofa.
The texured wool olive green fabric is a lovely colour (expect to see more fresh green trends in furniture and homeware as new spring 2011 arrivals emerge) and works well with the light oak feet.
If green isn’t for you, other colours are available, including cocoa, mushroom, emerald and puce.
The Mistral sofa is available in two sizes, plus there’s a matching one person love seat, and all options are currently reduced in the Heal’s sale. The Mistral medium sofa is now £1480, the large sofa is £1560 and and the loveseat is £1140.

Dark wood wardrobe
This contemporary dark wood Warwick wardrobe, in a rich walnut stain, was £895 but is now reduced in the sale down to £535.
This lovely scarlet red Magnet milano easy chair offers a modern take on the traditional tub chair design. A matching round red footstool is also available.
Both items are reduced in the sale at Heal’s, with the chair now £1525 (was £1795) and the footstool £485 (was £575).
Perfect for two
I love the style of these love seat sofas. This one is the contemporary Waltzer wok fabric love seat, which is the perfect seat for two people, or for one person to curl up on. The sofa is available in a choice of fabric colours, including grape (purple), green, brown, charcoal, soft grey and bone (beige).
The Waltzer loveseat wok sofa was originally priced at £1990, but is now reduced down to £995 in the sale at Heal’s.
