Creative youngsters have the chance to see their own sofa design become a reality, as part of a competition.

Designers aged 11 years and under are invited to put pen to paper and share their sofa designs as part of a competition run by furniture and flooring specialists ScS.

The company has teamed up with Ashley Manor, an award-winning upholstery expert, to launch the challenge, named ‘My Sofa is’.

One winning young designer will scoop the opportunity to work with Ashley Manor’s sofa designers to transform their unique drawing in to a workable design, and then a real sofa.

The winner’s school will receive a real life version of the winning sofa design for their reception or library. They will also win a trip to Disneyland Paris for two adults and two children, in association with Broadway Travel.

Simon Nicholson, Furniture Buying Director at ScS, said: “Childhood is often a time when we are at our most creative and great ideas often come from our youngsters.

"We know families and children enjoy spending time together at home and understand the role a favourite family sofa plays as the heart of the home, whether bringing the family together for a film or providing the foundation for playtime.

“We want to encourage children to tune into and share their natural creativity and imagination by creating their dream sofa design. We can’t wait to see some of their original designs, and look forward to choosing a well-deserved winner.”

Children, parents and schools can get involved. Entrants should decide on a sofa frame as a base to create their design and show their creativity and imagination. All entries must be submitted by February 23, 2018.
