Budget is a primary concern when it comes to searching for a great modern designer sofa for your Family Room. We all deserve quality and value for money. If you have an unlimited budget you are very fortunate, but paying top dollar does not always guarantee a top quality sofa.

Think about the size of designer sofa you need to accommodate your family. If you have a large family, it is necessary to look for a sofa at least 220 cms wide or a substantial corner sofa. Retro Europe offers the Le Bauhaus, Savoy, and the Scandi Spiers all in excess of 225 cms.


It is important that you choose a strong design and consider exactly where the modern designer sofa will be placed in the room.There are various shapes of sofa—L-shape, round, rectangular, and others, but generally the most functional are rectangular or L- shaped. Even with a limited space, the sofa must still be pleasing to the eye. So spend your money wisely, a great place to shop is where you will be sure to buy a great designer sofa from the Retro Europe’s Reinvented, Affordable, Great Design Furniture Collection.

There are alternatives to leather, Danish Cloth is very popular and available in a choice of colours.
