Sofas are undoubtedly one of the most important features of your home – it's not only the anchor to your living room, but also where you lounge, watch your favourite shows, and maybe even take naps sometimes. As such, the most important things to consider are style, quality and comfort level.

For our second episode of #CheckItOut with Young Lim, we tried out some pieces from Harvey Norman's new Australian sofa collection. Continue reading to find out why we think it's worth checking out!





1. You can take your time


When it comes to buying a sofa, don't rush! Give yourself some time by going down to the store and testing out the various sofas, just like how you'd give a car a test drive. On top of that, hastily plopping down on each sofa for just a few seconds won't do much good. Instead, sit and lay down on each sofa for awhile, so that you get a better idea of how it'll feel like at homeAnd visiting the Harvey Norman flagship store to try the sofas out for yourself is the perfect way to do just that!


2. They are made and designed in Australia

Adhering to top notch Australian standards, the sofa collection was produced using high grade quality materials like durable Australian kiln hardwood frames, high performance fabrics, and dunlop premium foams. It even comes with a posture enhancing seating system and a 10-year warranty!


3. An extensive range of fabrics



Each and every fabric feels different and may affect the overall feel of the sofa. For instance, you may like the look of textured fabrics, but do you like how it feels? Does a certain fabric feel more cooling than the other? Are you bothered by the sound leather makes when you shift? Luckily, Harvey Norman's Australian sofa collection comes in over 2,000 Warwick fabrics, so your options are almost limitless.


4. A wide variety of styles

You may have an idea of what kind of sofa you want in your home, but you'll never know what other options may surprise you. For instance, Young never imagined wanting an outdoor sofa for his home, but after taking a seat on the 2-seater Lankai sofa ($3,199), he was sold. Plus, these sofas are just the right size for small Singapore apartment homes!


5. Affordable prices

Who said stylish and quality sofas had to come with sky-high price tags? Prices in this collection are reasonable, ranging from $999 to $3,199, so you don't have to worry too much about going over budget! This 2-seater Baker sofa, for example, is priced at a comfortable $2,199.


The sofa collection is exclusively available at the Harvey Norman Flagship Superstore, #01-59 to 63, No. 9 Raffles Boulevard, Millenia Walk, S039596. Call 6311 9988 or visit for more details.
