Types of Sofas

At Thomas Lloyd, we offer a diverse range of sofa types, each meticulously designed to provide exceptional comfort and style for your space. Whether you’re looking for the classic elegance of a high-back sofa, the relaxed comfort of a low-back sofa, the superior support of a wing-back sofa, or the versatility of a sofa bed, we’ll help you find your perfect match.

What is a high-backed sofa?

A high-backed sofa features an elevated backrest, offering excellent support and a grand, sophisticated appearance. It’s perfect for creating a statement piece in your living room while providing ample comfort and lumbar support.

While most sofas measure between 66cm to 105cm tall, high-back sofas typically start from 85cm. Our best selling high-backed sofa, the Monk 3 Seater Leather Sofa, is 105cm tall. 

Are sofas with low backs comfortable?

Low-back sofas offer a contemporary and relaxed aesthetic. While they may not provide the same level of back support as high-backed sofas, they are comfortable and ideal for casual, modern living spaces. 

Discover one of our most popular low back sofas, the Cambridge 3 Seater Sofa.

What type of sofa is best for lower back pain?

For those with lower back pain, a high-back sofa or a wing-back sofa can be an excellent choice as they prevent your hips from falling back in the chair. These designs offer better lumbar support and ergonomic comfort as they keep the spine from curving, reducing stress on the lower back.
