Affordable customized sofas for all Australian homes
When it comes to interior design, the thing that sets your house apart from anyone else’s – the one magic factor that turns the place you live in into a home – is the way you choose to decorate it. The same way that your clothes, hobbies or friends say a lot about your personality, it is also reflected in the way you choose to furnish your home. This is why many Australians have now started looking into purchasing custom made sofas: it is commonly understood that the only way to get exactly what you want is to design it yourself, and thanks to The Custom Sofa Centre, this is now easier than it has ever been before.
Select from hundreds of different options spanning from colours, materials, styles and more to make sure that you have the perfect couch. Design a beautiful 3 seater sofa with yellow fabric upholstering to brighten up the living room and boost the mood of the entire family, or take a look at our options for a classic Chesterfield sofa to feel like a good old English gentleman (or gentlewoman!). Only your imagination is the limit when you put together the perfect customised sofa. Your sofa is one of the most comfortable places in your house and a place where you often end up spending a lot of your free time – whether that’s watching TV, reading a great book or playing Candy Crush – so it is important that you are absolutely in love with your couch.
You can find our wide range of options and sales on selected styles on our website, or you can come visit one of our showrooms to have a chat with our interior design specialists who have the best tools to make your idea into a reality and give advice on what would work best with your home in terms of size, colour and anything else that might be relevant. We are here to inspire! Currently The Custom Sofa Centre assists customers in easy to find locations across three states, Queensland, Victoria and New South Wales.
Located on well connected routes near major cities, the physical showrooms of The Custom Sofa Centre are easy to visit and a great place to start if you’re unsure how to design your first custom made couch. Would a modular sofa fit your living room better than a sofa set? Should you buy a white leather couch or black leather couch? What are the benefits of fabric vs. leather, and which colours go together best? What kind of a couch should I buy if I want to create a rustic atmosphere or a minimalist interior design? Not to worry: our sofa experts have wide experience in the sector of sofas, and they are happy to answer any of the burning questions you might have.
The world of customised sofas might seem overwhelming if you’re not familiar with the right terminology. Many of our customers come in with their own great ideas that we are then able to help them develop into a real design for a customized sofa, and while doing your own research in what might or might not work for your house and your family is a great idea, don’t hesitate to contact us even when you’re just embarking on you couch journey and taking your first steps in planning a custom made couch. Let our varied options of styles and colours inspire you in your own design decisions. Even if you’re still not fully sure what kind of a couch you want to purchase – maybe a corner lounge or a recliner? a white leather sofa or a green velvet couch? – you can quickly get a good idea of what best fits your home by browsing all the available options.
So come visit our showrooms to have a chat with our specialists. Open every day of the week, we are easily within reach, or you can get in touch with us by phone or email.

Let’s start from the basics – what kind of a sofa do you need?
Every customer’s requirements are different when it comes to required seating space, shape and size of the sofa. In some homes you might be forced to place your sofa in a tricky corner so that you need a couch with specific dimensions, or maybe you don’t have that much space and want to maximise the area by purchasing a couch that has as much uniform seating space as possible.
The size of the sofa might depend on your family situation. Many people living alone or in couples prefer a smaller loveseat, especially if they live in a smaller apartment where space is an issue. One of the favourite models that young couples like to purchase is the 2 seater sofa bed, a versatile piece of furniture with multiple functions: during the day, it provides just the right amount of seating space for you or you and your significant other while at night, it is easy to pull up into a single sofa bed in case of unexpected guests if you don’t have a guest bedroom. Two seater sofas in general are great sofas for smaller houses or apartments because their compact size makes it easy to arrange the furniture in the room in the way that you like, and they are guaranteed to fit in almost any space, no matter how small. Many people also like having a two seater couch in their office or guest room. Especially for an office, it is a great idea to add a small couch so that you can properly relax on your breaks or even work from it – now this is a way to make working from home extremely comfortable!
For families with children or those planning to expand their family soon, bigger couches usually prove to be the better option since they have more space to accommodate the whole family. A three seater couch is a good size between a two seater sofa and a corner lounge, and while it is bigger than the smaller options on the market, it is still usually a good size for most modern apartments. It is a common size and leaves a lot of space for imagination when it comes to designing its specific style and colour. This is one of the most popular models with families with children since it provides a lot of seating space. Singles and couples love a good 3 seater couch too – even more space to stretch out and relax! The reason it is often popular with families is that due to its bigger size, it is usually a better fit for a house than an apartment, and it is truly one of the most classic kinds of sofas there are.
For maximising seating space and providing extra comfort, a lot of our customers also love our selection of corner lounges. Thanks to its special shape, it is easy to place in the corner of the room where it uses the space efficiently while providing great comfort. A corner lounge is also known as an L shaped couch, named so because of its resemblance to the letter L. An L shaped lounge is also a versatile piece of furniture that can be turned into an emergency bed for overnight guests or even storage space by placing bedding or blankets under the seat cushions. It’s a great way to partition rooms by placing it with one side against a wall, one side in an open area, which can be a helpful feature in apartments where the living room is just one big, open space. These days, it is also possible to buy L shaped couches where the other side of the couch comes off which helps if the desire to rearrange your furniture ever strikes and you would prefer to separate your couch into two parts. What a versatile piece of furniture!
Want to sit like a king or a queen? Get to know our selection of chaise sofas and chaise chairs. Nothing makes you feel more like royalty at home than sitting comfortably. Unsure of what a chaise sofa is? Chaise sofas are sofas with an extended leg piece as a part of the couch: so one part of the couch is slightly extended to allow you to stretch out your legs and sit in more of a resting than an upright position. A chaise sofa offers extra leg space for one section of the couch, making the sitting position more horizontal than vertical, and it immediately boosts the level of comfort. Often people purchase tuffets or footstools to create the same effect as a chaise lounge gives so why not shop for that style and see if that might be the best solution for you? Add extra comfort by choosing soft fabric or velvet upholstering and kick back and relax, knowing that you’ve got the most comfortable sofa in the game.
A Chesterfield couch – a popular customised style
It is worth mentioning Chesterfield sofas separately from other models mentioned in this chapter since a Chesterfield couch is not the size of a couch, it’s a very specific style.
Chesterfield couches are marked by their high back and arms, diamond pattern on the upholstering and deeply set buttons, and it is one of the most recognisable couch styles around the world. Rumoured to have originated from the mansion of an English Lord, a Chesterfield sofa is always a stylish, elegant choice for any home. Combine the stunning looks of this timeless style to its most common upholstering, leather, and you have a piece of furniture that is sure to stand the test of time both style-wise and based on its durability.
A Chesterfield lounge has an air of nobility and elegance like very few pieces of furniture do. The great news is that it also works with pretty much every size and shape of a couch. A Chesterfield lounge is a popular choice for our two seater and three seater models, and it looks beautifully regal with its high back and tufted finishing. The Custom Sofa Centre also offers chaise chairs in the Chesterfield style – rest your feet while lounging like a lady in a truly iconic interior design piece. A Chesterfield lounge is not only a comfortable place to sit, it is also a statement of style.
It is a popular choice for many Australian families which is why we have created an entire selection of beautiful Chesterfield furniture. You can see the whole selection and all the different options on our website and decide whether Chesterfield might be the right choice for you.
As many styles of sofas as there are in the world, the shapes and sizes are just the beginning of the customisation process. Keep reading to find out more about our many upholstery and colour options to decide which one best suits your individual preferences.
Colour selection can impact your mood
One of the biggest reasons our customers are seeking to get customised furniture is the freedom to customise the colour as much as they wish. Often it happens that when browsing for the perfect sofa, you do come across one that would be a great fit for your home – if it wasn’t for the colour. In these cases, you often just have to suck it up and purchase the sofa even if it isn’t exactly what you were hoping for.
With customised sofas, you have a wide selection of colour options available to pick from. Match your couch with the same hues as the rest of your décor or pick your favourite colour – when it comes to designing your own couch, you call the shots. The Custom Sofa Centre has a range of colour options available for every style, ranging from classic blacks and whites to yellow, blue, purple and more – browse our online catalogue to find your favourite shade.
People interested in interior design will surely know that the colours you select for your home can have the power to impact and change your mood. Can a white leather lounge really make you happier or could a green velvet sofa boost your mood? Colour psychology says yes, absolutely. In their everyday lives, most people don’t stop to think about the effect that the colours in the world around us do, but subconsciously they can have a huge effect. That’s why you should consider the effects of colour psychology when you’re picking out furniture, especially if you’re trying to create a certain atmosphere in your home.
Here are some of the most popular colour choices our customers make and what they mean.
White is the colour of freshness
According to colour psychology, white makes people think of purity, freshness and peace. It is an excellent colour for any home since it rarely clashes with any other shades, and it often has the effect of helping rooms appear bigger, brighter and airier. It also gives you great freedom of choice when it comes to the styles that The Custom Sofa Centre offers: a white leather lounge looks just as good as a loveseat or an L shaped couch since the colour adapts to many styles easily. In fact, it might be your best choice for bigger couches, thanks to its impact of making a room look bigger.
White is a peaceful colour that brings a lot of brightness into any room. Many people think that it makes them feel refreshed so if you want your home to be a place where you can truly recharge your batteries, maybe a white sofa set is the right choice for you.
Black is (still) the new black
Black is a true classic – stylish, mysterious and sleek, it can be combined with any other colours and will always be in fashion. Many people shy away from using black in interior design because it can make rooms appear darker, and in Western cultures it is often associated with mourning and night time. However, black is an excellent highlighter colour in otherwise minimalist or even-coloured designs since anything black is sure to stand out in an environment like that.
Used wisely, black can easily create an air of timeless style and elegance, and it’s a great contrast to all the other colours in the room. A black leather sofa can immediately make you feel like a nobility in your own home, and it is a great way to catch a visitor’s eye in a living room: after all, if you’re getting a custom-made couch, you want it to pop as the most important detail in the room.
Green reminds of nature
Green is a colour best associated with nature and peacefulness. Maybe this is the reason a green sofa has become one of the most sold products in The Custom Sofa Centre’s catalogue: with multiple styles and variations available, the effects of green come through with any style of a sofa.
Since green reminds us of our connection to the nature around us, it is a very natural colour to have in your home, and brings a lot of peace and quiet in the house – almost like being in a beautiful forest, listening to birds singing. A green couch in your home can actually make you feel calmer so it is a great choice for offices, doctor’s practices and even your living room.
Brown works with absolutely everything
Different shades of browns are many interior designers’ favourite colours to play with because it’s hard to find a combination that it wouldn’t work in. Thanks to its earthy hue and natural neutrality, a brown or tan couch is easy to combine with any colours or patterns in the room. You can use orange and red to highlight the warmth of a lighter colour tan leather couch or select greens and blues to go with a darker brown couch to create an air of old-fashioned coziness and calmness. Since brown is also a very mellow colour, it is great if you like to use a lot of crazy patterns in your design – in fact, the wilder the pattern, the better it compliments the subdued hues of a brown couch.
Add a splash of colour with yellow
One of the popular choices in our colour catalogue is also yellow. Yellow is a warm colour, similarly to red and brown, but it has a special feature that many other colours are missing: it is extremely cheerful. Yellow is a bright, happy colour that is very stimulating to the brain which can be a great mood booster but used in too many places, can quickly become overwhelming and overstimulating. If the rest of your décor is fairly minimalistic or monochromatic, having a yellow couch is a fun splash of colour in your house. At The Custom Sofa Centre, we offer the colour option yellow for most of our styles and recommend it if you want your living space to look bright, optimistic and happy.
Choose the right material for your customised sofa
Now for the final touch: a great couch becomes perfect with the right choice of upholstery. Everyone has their own preference for the best materials for their couch, and you can combine colours and materials in creative ways to evoke certain feelings in your family or your guests.
Perhaps the most popular choice of material is good and trusted fabric. Easy to maintain and simple to wash should it get dirty, fabric is a good choice if you want to focus more on other styling choices for your new couch and if you’re just looking for something simple that works well in your everyday life. The Custom Sofa Centre is dedicated to good quality and guarantees that all fabric upholstering is lovingly made and designed to last.
Leather is a popular choice for upholstery for many great reasons: it will always be in style, it is durable and thus also more resistant to spills, and it is very comfortable. The Custom Sofa Centre offers leather sofas in many variations to make sure that you find the one that makes you feel most at home. A white leather sofa is the favourite choice for many amateur interior decorators since it compliments a minimalist design very well and withstands dirt and spills better than fabric, thus being a good option for those wanting a white couch but feeling unsure about getting a white fabric one. Black leather couch, on the other hand, is an impressive piece of furniture that immediately steals the spotlight and works as an excellent piece of contrast in many design styles. Leather is a durable material which – while requiring some upkeep – returns the favour manifold by looking timelessly classy for years after you first purchase it. The Custom Sofa Centre has the option for leather upholstery for all their styles because we know that there is a good reason for its long lasting popularity.
Another popular upholstery option in modern-day homes is velvet. Similarly to leather, velvet is an extremely stylish material that also adds plenty of elegance to the room. A green velvet couch is a beautiful spot of colour in a room that is otherwise minimalistically styled, and over the years, you can guard it from too much sunlight or let it beautifully fade until it reaches a stylish vintage look. Velvet does more than look good: the material is incredibly soft to the touch, making it also one of the most comfortable upholstery options out there. Maintaining velvet furniture is also nowhere near as difficult as many people think: often going over the cushions with a soft vacuum head once every two weeks is enough to keep the velvet looking happy and plush.
Styling your living room with your new couch
Whether you’ve added a big L shaped sofa or a snug 2 seater couch to your cart, you must be getting excited to start arranging your living room to fit the new couch. While a great sofa is surely the centrepiece for any living room, it is a good idea to make sure that it matches the rest of the furniture. Everyone needs a friend, even your custom-made couch, and the best pal to your settee is surely stylish sofa tables that ensure that the snacks for the movie night or the appetisers at a dinner party are easily within reach without you having to risk spilling all the food and drink on the couch.
Speaking of tables, have you checked your TV table recently? Many people don’t think that a TV table could be such an important piece of furniture in a living room when in reality, it is visible and noted every time someone turns on the TV – which happens almost every time the living room is in use. Get a TV table that flows with the rest of the room but also has some storage space for remote controls, cables and DVDs.
For bigger homes, a sofa is rarely the only seating space in the living room. You can instantly add more comfort and seating space to your home by purchasing a recliner to go with a smaller sofa, like a 2 seater sofa or a sofa set. With customised options you can even make your recliners match the couch in the room to create a perfectly harmonised design. If you feel like a recliner might take too much space, you can also look for great options for armchairs and chairs – sometimes a beautiful chair can really help complete the look of the room, especially if its colour or material matches the couch.
Finish the style of the room with personalised items. A rug is a must for every cozy living room, and choosing the colour or pattern for it depends on the general style that you’re going for. Bright or dark? Artistic or simple? Rustic or modern? And don’t forget art on the walls! Some pieces from your favourite artists are the final touch to bring a beautiful room together and make you feel good to be at home. Finish the look with stylised picture frames – simple black frames for a minimalist room or decorative golden that goes especially well with a velvet or a leather sofa.
Keeping your couch looking as new as the day you got it
As the most beloved piece of furniture in the house, the sofa sees a lot of use, and it’s exposed to a lot of small issues that could over time start to damage its quality: direct sunlight can fade the colours of a bright fabric, spills from food and drinks can stain velvet, and your leather couch can soon start looking cracked and old if you don’t condition the material properly. Luckily, when you know what to do, taking care of your furniture is no task at all and easy to incorporate into your weekly cleaning rituals.
One of the materials that demands most attention is leather but luckily, keeping your leather couch in good condition is not time-consuming nor difficult. Leather’s biggest issues are cracking due to being dry or being exposed to too much sunlight, and discoloration, which can be caused by sunlight as well, spilled food or uneven cleaning. When you clean or treat a leather couch with a product, you should go over every part of the couch because in case that the cleaning agent slightly changes the colour of the leather, the colour will look uneven if you don’t treat the whole couch at once. Discoloration is especially visible on lighter colours, for example a tan leather lounge can show uneven colour especially well. When you clean or condition a leather couch, just make sure to always use specialised products that are made for leather upholstering.
Another material that often gets the reputation for being tricky to maintain is velvet – but in truth, this luxurious material doesn’t take much more care than normal fabric, either. Vacuum the cushions with a soft brush attachment once every week or every two weeks and remember to fluff the pillows regularly. If you get a crease in the sofa, it is easy to steam out using a household steamer. Velvet is also especially vulnerable to colour fading in direct sunlight but many people like to lean into this to achieve a natural vintage effect: your green velvet sofa definitely looks beautiful when it’s fresh out of the sofa-makers shop but its elegance might even seem upgraded after its surface has become beautifully faded in a few years.
Simple fabric is still often the most popular choice for sofa upholstery, and no wonder: it is definitely the easiest one to take care of. This doesn’t mean, though, that you should be ignoring the maintenance of your fabric covered corner lounges and sofa sets! It’s a good idea to vacuum and fluff the cushions regularly to keep them looking clean and crisp, and with most fabric materials, cleaning a dirty cushion is easy if you can take the seat covers off. In that case, cleaning a tricky spot left by a stray forkful of your spaghetti bolognese is as easy as throwing the cushion covers in the washing machine!
Come visit one of our store locations to talk to our sofa specialists and ask them any questions you might have about the upkeep of your new custom sofa. You should definitely be cleaning all your furniture regularly: but when it comes to custom sofas, a good cleaning roster is especially important since customised couches are made from high-quality materials and can outlast most regular sofas, but to ensure a long lifespan, you have to take good care of it. Your Chesterfield lounge deserves good care just as much as a classic car or a washing machine! As experts with many years of experience of selling and designing couches, our staff at The Custom Sofa Centre has a lot of valuable information on how to keep your sofa looking as clean as the day you purchased it.
The perfect customized sofa for the perfect price
For a lot of financially savvy shoppers, the price tag is one of the most important requirements when they’re looking for new furniture. Shopping for sofas can quickly get frustrating, though, when you find yourself sitting in front of the computer for hours or rushing from store to store in the hunt for a perfect sofa. It might be easy enough to find a common type of couch even in your preferred style and price range, but the search immediately gets harder once you start looking for something a little more unique like a leather corner lounge, a chaise sofa or a green velvet couch. Many stores like to only stock bestsellers which means that your options as to size, colour and style are pretty limited. While there are many sale sofas available all through the country, browsing through all the catalogues can be a tiring task that is not worth the money – even when the couch is discounted! In addition, cheap sofas don’t always come with a quality guarantee like the sofas at The Custom Sofa Centre do.

When you’re looking to invest in a new couch, you want it to last for a long time and remain the centrepiece of your house for years.
