Sofa Company Recommendations

Hi there, I am looking to change my sofa. My current one is around 7 years old and purchased from Furniture Village. It is a leather one and has lasted a long time. It was around £2500.

I would like to replace this with a corner sofa and I was thinking about maybe just going for cloth material this time.
I note that DFS have some very reasonable prices. I visited their showroom and was impressed with the models I was keen on. I took to the internet last night and found some reviews stating that the sofas on display in DFS are not the same as what you actually get. They tend to have more padding than the model they send you. 

This has put me off a little so I assumed maybe cheaper sofas mean you are more likely to have issues. I turned my attention to Sofology who seem to have a more stylish range, but over double the price. However, again, doing some digging online, I found that Sofology are owned by DFS.

Can anyone give me some recommendations on a good, reputable sofa company? Furniture Village does not do the style I am after, the DFS ones look good but are quite a lot cheaper. I don't want to get rid of my current one and end up with issues if I go for a cheaper alternative. 

Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.  :)

    I found an online company called FURCO who do a selectoin of home furntiure and they have a lots of sofas on sale.  I bought a sofa from them last year and it was pretty good for the price. i paid £700 for a 3 and 2 seater leather recliner. it wasn't the highest quality but did the job nicely. i would recommend giving them a try.

    If you go for fabric I would recommend getting one you can change the covers on.
