Aesthetics

This sofa comes in 5 different colors that range in lighting and effect. With this one we have a grey color that is perfect for simple home and if you are looking to add a simple soft touch then this is definitely it. This Nordvalla color is perfect for any room color regardless of the lighting in that room and it will definitely change and switch things up.

The best part about this grey color is that once you initiate this sofa into your home it will blend in, leaving room for all your other pieces without destroying the natural balance in the room. 

So if you are looking to add a sofa to a simple modern room with contemporary furniture then this sofa is exactly what you are looking for. Now that doesn’t mean if you prefer another type of decor this sofa is out. 

Whether your home has traditional lines or modern lines you can still adopt this sofa into your home and make it worth your while. You just need the right accents to add and voila! Your home will be as beautiful as it can be. 

Feel

With this sofa the seat cushions are filled with high resilience foam and polyester fibre wadding and this will give your sofa the ultimate soft frim touch that we all want when we are relaxing. It grants comfortable support for your body, and it can easily regain its shape when you have been sitting on it for too long, and when you get up. 

The back cushions are reversible and are filled with polyester fibres to provide soft support for your back and two different sides to wear. The best part is that the covers are easy to clean and maintain.

The cover is not only easy to keep clean as it is removable and can be machine washed. That makes cleaning the sofa more than an easy task. 

Durability

The best thing about this sofa is its cover. As I said before, this sofa’s cover can handle so much more than any regular cover. This cover’s ability to resist abrasion has been tested to handle 50,000 cycles. 15,000 cycles or more is suitable for furniture used every day at home. Over 30,000 cycles mean a good ability to resist abrasion. 

The cover has a lightfastness level of 5 on a scale of 1 to 8 which makes it pretty resistant if you ask me. According to industry standards, a lightfastness level of 4 or higher is suitable for home use.

Besides the cover, all the cotton used comes from more sustainable sources. This means that the cotton is either recycled, or grown with less water, less fertilizers, and fewer pesticides making it more environmentally friendly. 

Price

Now, this sofa goes for a price margin of €299 which to me seems pretty ideal considering the fact that this sofa is not only durable but is strong and very friendly for home use. Made from some of the most reliable resources out there. 

This sofa definitely deserves to cost more than that. So you must be thinking to yourself should you really get this sofa because trust me I know it has already promised to give you so much plus that 10-year guarantee will definitely set the risk margin at a lower space for you and your finances.

So if you are looking for something that can definitely and will definitely light your home up with a decent budget then I think this sofa is definitely what you need.

Verdict

Now the last question on your mind is probably wondering why you would want this sofa in your home? Well after thoroughbred research on this sofa I discovered that the sofa is not only strong and durable but also very easy to maintain. The covers are strong and won’t fade easily. 

The seats are filled with high resilience foam and will definitely not give out on shape easily. That means your sofa will just be as bouncy in the next 10 years as it was the first day you bought. The only thing bothersome is that this sofa will probably not attract a lot of stains and all. So the cleaning may be easy but it will definitely be annoying.
