House & Home: Habitat sofa

As some of you may know I moved to Sheffield at the end of August. From the day we arrived I’ve been busy with work and prepping for my current business venture, Indiecana. This means that I’ve still got a lot of sorting and organising to do in the flat. The bedroom is done but I still need to organise the second room and the lounge. The shelves are up and have been filled with books, magazines and an old Furby. I’m sure this will change because I want to get rid of a lot more things to the charity shop. I want to make my life easier to move and avoid keeping unnecessary things (we’ll see how that goes).

I’m now at the stage where I want to get the lounge cosy and ready for autumn and winter. I’m on the look out for a sofa and a coffee table. I’ve actually been without a sofa for quite a while now. I spend a lot of time at my desk in the evening and haven’t really needed one. I’m now learning to relax a little so I’ve decided it’s time to invest in some more furniture (I always rent unfurnished). The other evening I started browsing sofas on Habitat, Made, Ikea and Heals. They all have a pretty good selection so I’ve decided to take it brand by brand. Over the next few weeks I hope to narrow down my search and would love your input.

I’ve always been a big fan of Habitat for home furniture and accessories. My current bed is from there, I’ve had it for about two years. It’s very good quality and has survived moving from Suffolk – Cambridge – Sheffield. At the moment any spare money I have is going into my business so I thought that everything on the site would be out of my budget. I’m pleased to say that I was wrong. I’m hoping to find something that will be easy to transport for the next time I move.

As soon as I stumbled upon the Momo sofa and armchair I knew they were potential winners. I’m looking for a structured sofa, not a soft and squidgy one and the Momo is ideal. I really like the rounded design and they have that 60s style that I always end up going for. What do you think of the Momo seating?
