Narrower than a standard sofa but wider than a typical armchair, the snuggler was originally designed for 17th Century women to sit upon with their large dresses. Today, however, the snuggler is embraced in homes all over the UK for its ultra-cosy qualities and its ample size.

So, what makes the snuggler so popular and why should you treat your home to one?

Aside from their sumptuous design, snugglers are also practical and versatile in that they can help furnish a room that doesn’t have space for a sofa or alternatively, replace a sofa to open up more space in a room. They also have the comfort factor and can be upholstered in a variety of fabrics to complement your home.

A snuggler is also the perfect opportunity for you to introduce contrast to your scheme. You could, for example, opt for a differing fabric and/or colour than your sofa here to bring some drama to the space.

If you have an empty space to fill like the corner of a room, a snuggler is an ideal solution. Not only does it offer the practicality you require, but it also creates a design statement. Strong in form but oh-so-cosy, it can seamlessly fill an empty area in the living room or sitting room without overpowering the room. A sleek, contemporary model placed in the corner of a room can create a stylish focal point and by adding a side table and some beautiful accessories that match the legs of the snuggler makes for a really stunning aesthetic.

Often, we’re simply looking to update and give a new lease of life to a tired room. This is your chance to play with colour and fabrics. Incorporating a snuggler in a striking fabric like velvet in a rich hue like a bright orange or a pink can completely transform your living room. You could opt to add some contrasting cushions or pop some cushions on your sofa that match the colour and/fabric of your snuggler for cohesion. Whatever your choice, a snuggler ticks so many boxes from comfort to style, so what are you waiting for? Snuggle away!
