After a long week there is never a better time than a Friday or Saturday night to cosy up on the sofa with your partner, family or friends for a movie night.

Whether your genre preference is horror or romance, your surroundings should be considered just as much as the film that you choose. A well-designed living room should be multi functional enough to cater just as well for you alone or when entertaining, and nothing beats a comfortable sofa that you can sit back, relax and sink into – whether alone or in company.

When buying a sofa, it’s important to consider its most frequent use; and if you like to snuggle up and get really cosy then a slouchy, laid-back design is an ideal choice. The soft linen fabric and deep 100% goose feather cushions that feature in our generously proportioned Galena Corner Group make it extra squishy while able to hold its shape, while the versatile grey will look good in most décor schemes.

Structured styles, on the other hand, suit those that prefer a more formal setting from day to day. No sitting room is complete without a media centre and our Felino Wall Unit is the perfect statement piece with its luxurious wood finish.

Not only is it super stylish, but it also offers a large amount of storage that’s perfect for keeping dvds, books and hidden wires out of sight for an uncluttered feel.

When watching any film, a key feature is mood lighting; you want it dark enough that you can really get into the film without sitting in the pitch black. A simple but elegant floor lamp such as this Lyra Nickel Floor Lamp is the perfect choice, it adds a simple elegance to any room.

If you have guests, displaying snacks and drinks is a great way to emphasise the ‘movie night’ theme, and the Glaston Bar Cart will be a huge hit with friends and family. Bar Cart

It’s always good to have a throw like the Diamond Grey Herringbone Throw on hand just in case nights get a little chilly. Fold and drape one over the back of the sofa, so that it’s always there when you need it, while still creating a chic finish to the room.

Now all that’s left to do is cosy up with a bowl of delicious butter popcorn and hit play.
