  • At the bottom of the post under the "Resources" heading
    I listed that the sofas were from Plush Sofas (an Australian chain store).
    Our living room is really tiny (it looks bigger in the photos!) so they are compact little two seaters.
    We got them as floor stock so they were a great price.
