The History of Delcor’s Lofa Sofa

Our Lofa Sofa was first created here at Delcor in the 1980s, and it is still as popular today – and it is easy to see why! For more than forty years the Lofa has led the way in sofa styles perfect for the home, offering the very best in comfort and design. There have been many imitations, but the Lofa is the original and the best. Find out all about the Delcor’s Lofa Sofa Range here!

Generous Proportions

The Lofa design is the ultimate in comfort and style. It is equally at home in a traditional environment in a floral chintz as it is in a minimalist Scandi style home. With its soft rounded arms that feature a hand-pleated detail, and piping around the plaque, and generous proportions, this is a sofa made for lounging in blissfully soft comfort.

Classic Design

In the world of interior design, fabrics and fashion styles come and go, but the Lofa remains a true design classic. In more recent years we gave the Lofa its London style back, which is a slightly higher squared off back cushion. However, you can still choose from the two original back styles!The standard low back style, which gives the Lofa more of a modern Chesterfield style, or the original high-back, with its rounded back cushion. Choose from your bespoke sofa options at your nearest showroom.

Multiple Size Options

The Lofa Sofa comes in several size options from small, medium, large and extra-large. It also comes as a ‘jumbo’ Lofa sofa which is an extra-large sofa, with added depth – so even more room for lounging! There is also a matching Lofa Armchair to take pride of place in your home, whether alongside your Lofa Sofa, or in its own space. And, the Lofa Sofa Bed can add even more convenience to your home with its strong and easy-to-use sofa bed functionality and comfortable mattress. The Lofa Sofa Bed is also available in multiple size options, from a small double, standard double and a queen sized sofa bed!

Choose Your Comfort

With all Delcor furniture, you can choose your comfort from a range of different seat and back interiors. Choose feather for the most traditional luxurious interiors, fibre for soft and squashy relaxed feel, or foam core for supportive comfort and neat appearance. All our sofas now also come with two 18” inclusive scatter cushions finished in the fabric of your sofa. With feather interiors and finished with your choice of piped or un-piped edges.

Choose Your Fabric

Choose from an unlimited range of fabrics or leathers to make your Lofa furniture totally individual. Our dedicated showroom colleagues will help guide you through the many options to create something special for you and your home. The Lofa Sofa style can be finished with neat, detailed bun feet in a range of wood colour finishes or an optional skirt for a more traditional look.

The Highest Quality Construction

All our furniture features hardwood frames for strength. The frames are of such high quality that we confidently give them a 50 Year Guarantee. Older Delcor furniture comes back for refurbishing time and time again, proving the strength and longevity of our products and their handmade-to-measure frames. So, you can be sure that your new Delcor furniture will be the finest you can purchase. When it comes to the Lofa, it is supported by a fully coil sprung base which gives it its wonderful, relaxed seating position and feeling of sumptuous comfort.

Style Through The Years

Take a look at one of our vintage sales brochures, from 1994!

The fabric seen above, Sanderson Tiger Stripe, was a hugely popular look for the Lofa throughout the years and is still available from Sanderson Fabrics. It just goes to show how true design classics can transcend time!

The Carlton is one of our newer collections at Delcor.

It has the same comfort as the Lofa, as it shares many of the same elements including the fully sprung base. The furniture can be fitted with neat, detailed bun feet in a choice of wood colour finishes or a skirt for a more traditional image. The Carlton’s arms are smaller and neater and have an attractive hand pleated detail on its arms. Alternatively, you can choose a plain fronted arm for a more minimalist appearance. The Carlton also comes in several sizes from small, medium, large and extra-large. There is also a matching chair!

The Designer Range also shares the same comfort as the Lofa and the Carlton.

Small, neat arms make it a more compact range and with the same classic looks, the Designer can also fit into any environment. The Designer can also be chosen as a sofa bed, its neat arms meaning that this is one of the more compact versions of our sofa beds if space is a concern.

All Designer Furniture can be finished with neat, detailed bun feet in a choice of wood colour finishes or a skirt for a more traditional image. With a further option of standard back or high back cushions, and of course the choice as ever of whichever seat and back interiors suit you as an individual. The Designer is available in small, medium, large and extra-large sofas. There is also a matching chair.

The Mountbatten Riser-Recliner Chair is ideal to suit the Lofa, Carlton or Designer sofas because of its

This chair offers the very best in comfort and ease of use. Relax back and the quiet mechanism with easy-to-use control handset will guide you into your perfect seating and reclining position, or simply raise your feet whilst you sit back.
