Darlings of Chelsea have stores nationwide, including their Ash Vale showroom, which underwent a bit of a transformation in April.

The showroom is now kitted out with new lights and flooring, stylish and somewhat quirky accessories, an entertainment area for the kids and even a football table; along with their special, emblematic ‘Darlings’ light feature. The new look is designed to help you get a feel for how one of their sofas could look in your home, with inspirational living space set-ups and chic, complementary furnishings.

The Darlings (as the staff are known) are really friendly, knowledgeable and happy to advise on anything from size to fabric choices. With their expertise, it’s easy to find the perfect sofa for you and your lifestyle.
