Beautiful sofas for your living room

We all spend so much time in our living rooms – it makes sense to invest in a beautiful sofa to relax sit confortably, whether you’re watching TV, chatting with friends, reading, knitting…

Today we have selected for you some of the best sofas money can buy these days.

First up, we have this beautiful TRUFFLE SOFA by Loaf:


With its relaxed pleats and deep buttons, thhis classic sofa will sure impress your guests and make your living room the ultimate place to chill.

Next up we have the west elm Andes Large 3 Seater RHF Sectional Sofa (Salt and Pepper):


This sofa is modern, has a super deep seat and looks extremely sharp – perfect for a modern home. It has a thin frame and cast metal legs. The grey of the fabric is neutral but classy. It comes with a separate footstool which will allow you to find the perfect relaxed position when you’re having a rest in your favourite room.

Last up, we have the Droitwich Spa 2 Seater Standard Sofa:


This lovely sofa is cute, comfortable and will add a nice touch of colour to any home. It features smooth velvet fabric, an elegant rounded shape, a buttoned back and dark legs.

Selected Cast Iron Casseroles

Today, we look at the best Cast Iron Casseroles to buy on the Internet. These beautiful pots are great for cooking various dishes and can even be used to make bread (“Dutch oven”). If you are interested in making bread using this technique, you may want to check out this page, which explains how to make it.

First off, we have the ultimate classic: the Le Creuset Signature Cast Iron Round Casserole.


This model is durable, beautiful, and instantly recognisable. The only real downside is the price: it’s pretty expensive at around £150 to well over £200 (depending on the size, colour, etc.)

This is an iconic piece that generations have used and loved. You can choose various colours and sizes, and you can use it to cook pretty much anything!

Another great alternative we like is the John Lewis & Partners Cast Iron Round Casserole, Frost Grey:


This model is both beautiful and affordable. Its look is stylish and clean. It has a smooth, porcelain enamel exterior which we think will look great in any modern kitchen.

One last option: even cheaper and still very functional: Amazon’s AmazonBasics Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Dutch Oven with Dual Handles.


This is a nice entry-level product at only £35. No fancy details or design, but it still does the trick if you’re on a budget!
