Sofas are probably one of the biggest household expenses when it comes to decorating and furnishing a house. Most people don’t mind investing a decent chunk of money into a sofa given that it is the main piece of furniture in a living room and it gets a reasonable amount of use. In fact, people are probably more likely to allocate a larger budget to their sofa than they are to their bed. But if we are shelling out sizeable amounts on a new sofa, we want to be sure that it meets our needs in every way.
And this is exactly what stood out to me when first came across ROM’s customisable sofas. Every single sofa is made to order and can be customised exactly how you want. Everything from size and configuration to individual functionality is totally up to you. You can choose whether you want manually or electronically adjustable headrests, specify the width of the armrests and choose from an array of comfort functions including electric recliners and seat depth.
To be honest, I didn’t even know you could get sofas with adjustable headrests let alone electronically adjustable headrests. What I can say, is that in the past when looking at sofas I have often discounted them due to the arm rests. I like mine to be really nice and wide so I can place a laptop or a magazine on them while I’m relaxing on the sofa of a evening.
Also unless you live in a huge house with plenty of space, size can often be an issue. If you need a sofa to fit in a specific place it’s really handy if you can specify the size. ROM sofas have always been custom made in increments of 20cms but as of this month ROM has launched a new sofa collection that offers even more flexibility in terms of size. Now ROM offers customisable sofas in size increments of 10cms.
The new collection is called Versato and is ROM’s most versatile collection yet offering new levels of made-to measure customisation. The collection is made up of three new contemporary models, the Cadini, Colorado and Tasman sofas. Let’s take a look at the Cadini and the Colorado.
Combining versatility, comfort and style, Cadini is the ideal sofa choice for the modern home. I love the beautiful curved silhouette and this sofa would look at home in any style of interior.
The Colorado sofa blends contemporary design with innovative technology and its style and sophistication make it the perfect piece for the contemporary home. Colorado works well as a matching pair or as a corner group.
As an added bonus, the new Versato collection comes with a sleek touch screen remote control. The EasyTouch control can be used to control the sofa’s recliner and has added intelligent features such as a child lock and a position memory function.
What do you guys think of the Versato Collection from ROM? Which model do you prefer? Cadini or Colorado? I’d love to hear your thoughts on these customisable sofas so let me know in the comments below.
Oh my gosh, I SO want the Cadini sofa!! I love how the seat section rolls forward. Reminds me of an airline seat – a luxury 1st class airline seat at that ;-)
It looks so comfy doesn’t it? I’ve purposefully not shown it to my husband as I know he will want one!
What a great idea to have a customisable headrest. I love it. And definitely it’s the cadini for me, I like the shape and the fabric of it.
The headrest is a great addition!
These are very cool, I’ve never seen something so customisable before xx
Me neither Ruth, the fact that you can choose the size in 10cm increments is amazing!
I really like the design! Many sofas with electric or movable elements are quite bulky but I love how sleek these sofas are. The fact that they are so flexible in size is brilliant too, I’ve never came across a sofa with this level of size customisation before
Me neither Natalie, 10cm increments is so useful!
Wow what an amazing idea! As somebody who once pulleyed a sofa up a 7 story building to get it in. I can truly empathise with this. My lift is tiny and my front door is even tinier. with such narrow entry points getting furniture into the house is often myth… thank you for sharing this ! SOOOO useful!
Yes getting them into your home can be a real issue but with this level of customisation it shouldn’t be a problem!
Wow, what an interesting read, I had no idea this was even possible. Thanks for the inspiration!
Nor did I Nicola!
Our (very old and worn) sofa is very similar to this style and I was just thinking I’m a huge fan of the more angular shape of sofa. Great options here!
Well this might be one to consider Donna!
Everyone loves a smart sofa and this one could win by far :) Comfort and looks work so well here. Could see myself having one of those in our own home for sure!
The headrests make it look so cosy don’t they? Not sure I’d ever leave the living room if I had one of these!
Wow now this is a sofa made for relaxaction i need a more comfortable sofa as my ikea one just doesnt cut it x
Yes comfort is a must and these sofas look the business!
Nice sofas and even better that they are customisable. Always great to find new suppliers!
Glad to be able to introduce a new brand!
Ah these are such a great idea, I’ve seen other companies do similar but not executed as well
No these look far superior don’t they?
Wow! Adjustable head and leg rests, I would never get my husband off the sofa and doing all the jobs I have for him ! Beautiful design though. Think the Cadini is my favourite.
Hmmm you have a point there Karen. You could just hide the remote!
The Caldini looks great, although I can see it becoming a constant source of amusement for kids!
This is very true, I bet they’d love getting it to move up and down!
This is brilliant,I love that the headrests can change as I love high head rests to chill in but to look at love the lower ones! I like the CADINI best
Adjustable headrests are such a great addition!
