For over fifty years, Tetrad sofas have enjoyed pride of place in living rooms across Britain. See for yourself why this brand is so popular for its country style sofas.
Why choose a Tetrad sofa?
Tetrad is a British brand that focuses on handmaking high-quality furniture. Every sofa that carries this brand name has been handmade, using tried and tested techniques. Under the lush upholstery is a sturdy hardwood frame, ensuring that the sofa is built to last. Over the years, the Tetrad range has expanded to include sofas of many different styles. Their vintage sofas are often made from gorgeous leather, with button tufting to give an old-fashioned twist. Modern versions of their farmhouse style sofas are finished with softer upholstery, and would look great as the centrepiece of a family living room.
Choosing your Tetrad sofa
When you've decided to go for a Tetrad sofa, you can rest assured that the quality will be excellent - so the question is, which design should you choose? Luckily, Tetrad sofas come in a variety of sizes, colours, and styles, so you'll find that there's something for everyone. A good starting point is to consider the environment of your living room. If you've got your best decorations out on the mantelpiece, and you enjoy a traditional English countryside atmosphere, then a vintage style sofa will fit in. These sofas look particularly good in rooms with a fireplace - whether or not you actually light it up! Go for a style with legs for vintage appeal; the Tetrad Dalmore is a great example of this. Button tufting gives a charming appearance, whether you choose a sofa that is tufted all over, or only on the backboard. A single, large seat, like you'll find on the Tetrad Jacaranda, is another hallmark of† vintage-style sofas. If, on the other hand, your living room is more minimalist, choose a Tetrad sofa without legs, and with the seat divided into two cushions. The Tetrad Havana is a perfect example of this style. This type of sofa has a more modern style, but doesn't sacrifice the quality that you'll find all over the Tetrad range.
Tetrad sofas for families
If you've got very young kids, then you might want to avoid button-tufted sofas. Little fingers love to pull at the buttons, and if you're not careful, they can do damage! The Tetrad Ruffle or Gatsby are good choices for families, as the seats are divided into cushions which can make for easier cleaning. Sofas on legs can also help you see at a glance if any toys have rolled underneath. Large families can look at the space-saving solution offered by the Tetrad Kolkata, with its generous corner shape that allows more of you to sit down together.
Whatever you choose, remember you can complement any style of Tetrad sofa with a selection of scatter cushions. Some, like the Tetrad Churchill, will come to you with cushions included - ideal if you're not great at matching patterns and colours yourself!
