The perfect sofa for a siesta

After lunch, when we sit back at our computers to complete the final hours of our workday, we all think about one thing—well, more like two. actually. The first being that we would love to sneak a little nap in and the second, I urgently need a coffee!  Yes, sleeping after eating is a pleasure that Europeans have indeed perfected during the summer months.

You may not be too fussy about the spot, on the bed, or even at your desk, but, the classic spot for a short nap is always the sofa. Long, short, solitary or with company: today we suggest eight different designs of sofa for you to think about napping on!


With slim legs and a beautiful coat, you would think we were talking more about a woman than a piece of furniture, right? This sofa is just ready and waiting to be napped on. Lying or sitting with your feet up, you can appreciate the textural quality of the chair by just looking at it.


If you like soft surfaces and company during your nap, then this may very well be the best sofa for you! Built with different pieces, you can separate, or join together as many pieces of the sofa puzzle as you see fit. Playing with patterns, colors and textures, let our creativity fly, and what better way to cure a writers block than a little shut eye on this fabulous set!

Ergonomic cardboard

Cardboard furniture is the latest and greatest in industrial design. This ergonomic chair is light weight, recyclable and of course, comfortable. Either with a pouffe, or on its own, you can rest assured the time you dedicate to your nap will be worth it.

A classic from the retro periods of the 70s and 80s, these couches replicate the styles of our favourite eras. Curvy and fun, you can nestle into the fabric with your body supported comfortably by the curve of the sofa. Either on the single or on the double, a nap is definitely calling!

Beanbags for all

Pouffes and beanbags are super comfortable and  far less of a financial investment than a couch. There may be people who, in theory, are against the idea of a floppy looking sofa, but coming in such a wide range of colours and patterns, it is undeniable that adding a bean bag to any living or work space is a fun and practical idea to instigate siesta time! 


For those who share a sofa at home will be no stranger to the occasional argument about who gets to stretch our their legs. When a Friday night movie beckons our bodies to stretch out, you should listen. With a sofa like this, three people, with three different needs can pick and choose if they want to sit or lay down during their downtime.

Since interchangeable and customisable sofas are all the rage as of late, we wanted to show off this couch which has a curvy sneak like rhythm to it. Two people can quite easily lay side by side to sleep four people, or if you are greedy for space, two can lay very comfortably facing one another.
