Bring your living room to life... with a colourful sofa

So yesterday you may have read my post "Do you have this problem too?" where I shared the story why I'm creating a little black book of interior stockists I love - I encourage you to go read it first and come back here to check out the very first in the feature. 
Now, allow me to introducing to you a 100% British gem I recently came discovered on my internet travels.

Delcor is an online furniture retailer with showrooms across the UK (including the beautiful city of Harrogate) who specialise in crafting made to measure chairs & sofas. 

If you're a long time reader of Fifi McGee you'll know my love for our chesterfield sofa, and traditional interiors. We live in a Victorian converted flat with solid wooden floors so I try to keep our décor in line with the period as best as poss. 

Delcor stood out to me because they craft British timeless designs that you can marry with modern material and striking prints. Where one would usually head in to an antique store or charity shop to buy second hand furniture and put up with the scratches and stains (although that's half the charm) it's relieving to hear there are designers still creating traditional classics with a modern twist. 

So if you wanted a brand new chesterfield-style sofa, you don't have to traipse through antique stores to compromise on one, and instead, get your own brand new. 

I particularly love the range of fabrics and colours on offer for every sofa design. With summer here to stay it's a refreshing update having a bright yellow statement sofa to open up a room. Come winter, thick knit blankets dull it down for a cosier feel. 

Yep, If my flat could withstand another sofa, the Chelsea sofa range in yellow would be mine. 

Price-wise considering the craftsmanship that's gone into every design, and the flexibility you get on fabric choices, it's value for money. An average 3/4 seater costs around the £1,500 mark, which might make you gasp. But it's a sofa, after all. It's worth investing in one you'll love for life. I'm a strong believer in buy cheap, buy twice. And that's exactly why I was happy to pay £1,700 for our Old Boots leather chesterfield sofa bed. Every day I love it that little bit more. 

And that concludes the first on my interior stockist list. If you're on the market for traditional sofas, dining room chairs or stools, pay Delcor a visit. There are some striking, quality pieces to be had.
