You’ve won the Saskia 3 seater sofa plus furniture insurance! Check your emails Helen, and everyone else watch this space for more LW Blog competitions coming soon.


Autumn’s arrived with a bang and we’re starting to think about cosy nights in and getting the family together in the living room round a nice fire and a good film. A key feature in this scenario has to be the seating and there’s nothing better than a new sofa where the family can cuddle up, so we’ve decided to kick off Autumn in style by giving our LW Blog readers the chance to win a brand new Saskia 3-seater sofa in chocolate plus 3 years furniture insurance!

How would this look in your living room?!

So not only will you have a new sofa to instantly update your living room this Autumn, but you won’t have to worry about any of the wear and tear that comes with day to day family life – rips, stains and tears are all covered and wherever possible the problem will get fixed in your own home within 3 days. Bonus!

With real leather seats and cushions in a rich chocolate brown, the Saskia sofa is a true blend of comfort and style and has all the practical features that come in handy for any family sofa. At 183 cm wide, 82 cm deep and 89 cm high, it would fill the living room nicely, although if this is a prize you’d love to win it would be worth checking the size to be on the safe side!

If you’d love a new sofa for the Winter and think this Saskia sofa would fit the bill, and that the 3 years free Furniture Insurance would come in handy, just read on for some competition info and then leave a comment telling us about a time in the past when FREE Furniture Insurance would have come in handy?

  • The competition will close on Wednesday 10th October at midnight, so any comments entered after that won’t be included in the draw.
  • All comments will need to be approved, so don’t worry if your comment doesn’t appear straight away!
  • Use the form below to leave your comment and one winner will be drawn at random from all approved entries and contacted via email.

    Free insurance would have been great had I had it when my dog got very excited when we had visitors and decided to leap in the air and do a bellyflop onto my sofa. He broke the centre strut and now I have a saggy sofa.

    Furniture insurance would of come in handy when i was a 6 year old child and accidently set fire to my old cabin bed. Resulting in one big expensive mess, e.g nasty burnt big toe and redecoration of my bedroom. At least my next bed wasnt a cabin bed! 🙂

    The little ones decided to colour the kitchen table rather than their pictures. Removing it made a right mess of the surface so we now have a permanent tablecloth!

  20. Posted by Catherine Hughes on October 8, 2012

    I will be moving on very soon from supported living and I am going to need absolutely everything! This would suit me down to the ground..I owned a three piece once and I got a dog from a rescue shelter. I came home from work and it had eaten its way through the door and into the front room and there was foam everywhere. It broke my heart because I didn’t have any money for a new one and I wasn’t insured.

  25. Posted by Michelle Patton on October 8, 2012

    Insurance would have been so useful when my boyfriend decided to be romantic and had placed rose petals on the ground and cute little candles. He had also prepared a lovely roast dinner with red wine. I got in early which my boyfriend was not expecting and he jumped and knocked the bottle of read wine all over over our new sofa and then burnt himself on the candle trying to rush to the sofa.

  26. Posted by Diana Malton on October 8, 2012

    insurance would of been handy after my cat clawed my new sofas when my little one accidentally left the sitting room door open.

  30. Posted by sophie saint on October 9, 2012

    Probably the time we got robbed, and, for lack of a better word, the arse holes took a cushion cover from each seat to carry all our valuables in. We could not find any matching seat covers and it cost a bomb buying new sofas.

  31. Posted by Emma Wardle on October 9, 2012

    Free insurance would have come in handy for when our tv broke after 14 months

  32. Posted by Rachel O'Brien on October 9, 2012

    One of my teenage sons had his friend over, unfortunately one in particular likes wearing spikes and studs on his clothing! After he left I discovered a deep scrape going from the front of my leather sofa to the middle where he had slid back into position. Studs are definitely banned now!

  35. Posted by JT on October 9, 2012

    When my bed broke from a house party!

    Would have come in handy when my water bed burst and flooded me out and left me with no bed

  37. Posted by Ellie Sutch on October 10, 2012

    I wished I’d had furniture insurance after my mischievous kitty decided my sofa made a much better scratching post than the ones I’d placed around the house for her. One torn, shredded sofa later and I’d learned the hard way that cat’s claws and leather do not mix!

  38. Posted by Daniela Manole on October 10, 2012

    Furniture insurance was great to have in the past, when my daughter doing some crafting on the sofa waiting for us to come home,it was her bday that day and we came home with a puppy …she was so happy to see the puppy,she started to jump on that sofa..after a few seconds we heard some cracks ,…the sofa was ruined :(. If i had this sofa we will be a happy family with a new sofa in the livingroom instead of a ruined one 🙁

  39. Posted by Michele smith on October 30, 2012

    When some idiot burned my leather couch on the cushion and arm and I didn’t find out till the next day, needless to say no one owned up.I’m still mad and don’t have parties at home anymore.
