A House and Home promotion
We asked three of our favourite tastemakers to choose a DFS sofa that best represents their sense of style, and to tell us why they love it. If you’re struggling to find furniture that speaks both to your personality and sense of style, then we hope you’ll be inspired by their thoughts.

Designers Jill & Gill on the Hoxton sofa
What’s your ‘thing’? To create something special with like-minded people and brands. Colour consumes and compels our work. We take pride in our art and print mediums which we continually push forward, blending the traditional with the contemporary. We thrive in delivering art-inspired projects full of enthusiasm.
What do you love about the Hoxton sofa? We love its inviting and modern style, as well as its details. This includes the leather straps that hold the arm cushions in place and the slender exposed wooden frame that give the sofa a sense of lightness and style.
How have you decided to style it? We’ve used punchy colours, graphic prints, and geometric shapes. The partition screen featured in the space was designed and made in our Dublin-based studio. It complements the Hoxton sofa and shows that even the softest of textures can work alongside a dash of boldness. The artwork featured is also by us, featuring portraits of Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama who is a strong influence within our work.

How would you style these pieces? My style is quite neutral and timeless so it’s nice to add a bit of personality, bringing in some fun prints and modern design.

Artists, Julie & Owen Mc Loughlin on the Enchanted sofa and So Simple Tom chair

How do you describe your work? It is bold and bright and beloved by our customers all around the world. Our work helps connect people to their favourite places. We are also 100% plastic free.
What do you love about these pieces? We chose the Enchanted sofa and Tom Chair because we love how the blush pink complements the orange in here, and we are all about using vibrant colours. We also liked the mix of soft curves and striking straight lines in the shape of the two pieces – it’s something we often incorporate into our print designs.
