Summer 2014: Are You Prepared?

According to scientists, summer 2014 is ‘likely to be the hottest on record’. Combine that with the school holidays and World Cup and you’ll realise that there’s a lot in store for us all in the coming months. As with most things in life, failing to prepare is preparing to fail, so continue to read this post and we’ll tell you how you can best prepare for the upcoming season.


The summer holidays are just two months away and that means children, all day, most days. Let’s not insult anyone’s intelligence – children can be messy and it’s a well-known fact, whether it is a stained carpet or a piece of ripped fabric. However, if you choose to plan ahead, you can avoid an untidy house.

Infinity (Endurance range)

Your home is about to play host to your children and their friends, so why not take some simple steps to preserve the cleanliness and quality of the furniture in your home? At ScS, we offer a range of sofas called ‘Endurance’. They are, as the name suggests, less susceptible to wear and tear and boast increased durability, making them ideal for high-traffic households and large families.

Sofas in this range have been designed specifically for families and combine leather with science. The design of the material is much tougher, yet it still looks and feels great, making it a perfect addition to your home this summer. What’s more is that these sofas are super easy to clean, convenient if there are any beer spillages during the World Cup!

In this range, we have a sofa for everyone, ranging from power recliners to manual and corner sofas. Whatever your needs, browse our range here to find a sofa that is right for you.

In addition to our sofas offered within the Endurance range, we also offer carpets which are very easy to clean and maintain. They are also stain resistant, meaning any dropped food or drinks shouldn’t cause too much of an issue (if the spillage is addressed in a timely manner – see specific care instructions). An Endurance carpet is more appropriate for households where there is a lot of footfall as the increased durability of the carpet means that it is more than able to cope with heavy use.

The World Cup

The FIFA World Cup is only days away, starting on Thursday 12th June. You may be asking, ‘how can I prepare for that?’ Well of course, you need to make sure that you and your guests are comfortable for the big games, which is why we recommend the La-Z-Boy Cool. This modern and stylish range contains a singular chair unit with a mini-fridge (for keeping drinks cold) and a heat massager. The rest of your guests are then able to enjoy the games in true luxuriousness with a range of sofas to choose from, including the 2 Seater or 3 Seater manual and power recliners also offered by La-Z-Boy.  However, if you are looking for a sofa with more durability then we would recommend the Endurance range.


With the World Cup, summer holidays and the likelihood of warm weather, we think it’s safe to say we will all experience our fair share of garden and house parties this summer. Make sure that you are able to accommodate any guests who may decide to sleep over. Guests could be anyone from your own children’s friends to friends of your own.
