Budding young artists took part in a competition organised by the store, for the chance to have their designs displayed ahead of the official launch.

The winners took centre stage to showcase their pictures, which demonstrate their own interpretation of what their sofa means to them.

Megan Holloway, Sofa Workshop’s marketing manager, said: “I want to say a big thank you to all of the children from The Lancastrian Infant School for taking part in our competition, and special congratulations to Rylee, Brooke and Amy for their fantastic stand out artwork.

“We wanted to jazz up our hoarding and make it a little more exciting for passers-by as the new store takes shape, and what better way than to join up with some budding young artists from the local area.

“We hope everyone living locally enjoys looking at the designs as much as we did.”

More than 22 entries were received from children in years one and two. The entries were judged by Sofa Workshop, with pupils being awarded £25 Whirligig vouchers for the top three standout designs.
