This year The Office for National Statistics’, when measuring inflation, removed the three-piece suite from its ‘basket of goods and services’. It found it had fallen out of fashion and is being replaced with corner sofas, single settees and statement chairs.
The sitting room has changed its function, replaced by the kitchen as the hub of the home leading consumers to make alternative furniture choices. New homes are increasingly being designed with combined living/dining space and therefore the need for furniture that fits this lifestyle is becoming more popular than ever.
Russell Francis’ showrooms in Market Harborough are leading this trend. They have on display over 60 sofas, corner groups and arm chairs, all beautifully displayed and available in hundreds of fabric options – never before has your furniture choice been greater together with the ability to create your own style.
Visit Russell Francis at 98 St Marys Road, Market Harborough – their 3 floor mill building is set between the town centre and the train station and has free customer parking.
