Bang on trend for winter 2018

The weekend is looming and with only four Christmas-shopping-weekends until The Big Day, the pressure is on to hunt high and low for that special something for those nearest and dearest.

The question remains, when it comes to festive fare do you embrace the hustle and bustle of the high street or are you a couch buyer? If you prefer to shop online and like to buy gifts from the comfort of your sofa it seems you’re bang on trend. That’s according to Katrina Burroughs (@Kat_Burroughs) writing in The Sunday Times, November 4th.

Katrina tells us “If you are idling on the couch with the newspaper right now, perhaps still in your PJs, congratulations! Not only are you winning at life, you are perfectly on trend.” That, she says, is according to research  which reveals that “half of Brits say their ideal weekend is spent on the settee; 60% of us would happily slouch on the sofa until bedtime, preferring a quiet night in to a crazy night out.”

Futon Company says: What can we say? We ourselves are partial to a spell of sofa surfing from time to time and it seems that we’re bang on trend for winter 2018! If lounging around is the love of your life, why not go one step further and plump for a sofa-bed or something similar so you can alternate between sitting and sleeping? We have plenty of goodies that will do just the job….
