Best Seat in the House

/live/blogs/best seat kingsley sofa.jpg

Since 2020, we’ve all had to make lifestyle adjustments, and many of us are using our sofas more than ever before! From shopping to socialising, here are all the ways we’re using our sofas in 2021.

Working and studying

While a desk is better long term, sometimes you simply need a change of scenery when working or studying at home. A recliner chair or sofa is ideal for this. Stressless sofas and recliners in particular provide suitable spinal support, so you can work or study comfortably for longer.

See our full Stressless selection here.

Movie nights

With cinemas closed, some blockbusters have had to premiere on the smaller screen. Turn down the lights and get that Hollywood feeling at home with your favourite streaming services or a good old-fashioned DVD.

Comfort is key. Corner sofas, recliner sofas and more casual designs make for a cosy night in. (And if you’re looking to upgrade to a cinema-size TV, why not consider a new TV unit to go with it?)

A love seat is perfect for a date night, allowing you to snuggle up together while you watch. If you’re mostly watching family films with the kids, a protected leather will make it easier to clean up the drinks and popcorn.

Don’t forget a footstool, so you can put your feet up!

Video calls are a must when we can’t spend time with our loved ones face to face. And where better than from the comfort of our living room? A nice big sofa, like a grand sofa or corner sofa, will keep the whole family in frame while you chat.


As stores have been closed on-and-off since March 2020, many of us are doing more of our shopping online. Cosied up on a scatter back sofa, you’ll be able to browse for hours on end.

At Lee Longlands, you can shop online, over the phone, via webchat, or by taking advantage of our new virtual showroom appointments, which allow you to view our products over a video call.

Not everyone eats in the living room, but there are worse things in the world than curling up on the couch with a scrumptious meal and your latest boxset. Protected leather is a great choice here, too, in case of any food or drink-related mishaps. Alternatively, you could buy a protection plan so you’re covered in the event of an accident.


With physical venues closed, more of our entertainment is happening in the home. Whether you’re gaming, listening to a virtual concert, attending a virtual event or simply reading a good book, choose a comfortable and supportive chair or sofa in which to while away the hours. You can view our chairs here.
