Best of British
Discover the Best of British from the Sofa Workshop
Cue the national anthem…
We're really rather proud that all our sofas are made in Britain. We don't think you can match the quality and don't like the idea of lorries trundling hundreds of miles around Europe or containers sitting on a slow boat from China for weeks.
Yep, we love supporting the British economy and creating jobs in traditional industries but importantly for you it also means we can keep a close and watchful eye on your order, from start to finish. Meaning we can deliver you the best quality sofa for your money.
We'd be telling fibs if we said nothing ever went wrong but because they're made here it means we can sort it quickly, no waiting months for the next container to arrive in the dock. Just a quick trip up (or down) the M1 and it's job done.
One man - one sofa
It takes 4 years to qualify as a British upholsterer and many of our upholsterers have been 'on the bench' since they left school, honing their skills to perfection. If you visited our workshops you may be surprised at how hands on and traditional it is. There's no swanky robots whizzing about or production lines. One person will work on your sofa from start to finish, taking tremendous pride in what they do. So much so they will sign every sofa they complete, knowing full well if there's a problem it can be traced back to them. Trust us this would really dent their pride.
Opening our doors
In fact we're so happy with how we make our sofas we're happy to open our doors and welcome customers to our workshops to have a look around. You'll be able to see for yourself the quality of our frames, the high attention to detail and see what an underestimated skill upholstery is. Or, save yourself a trip, and watch our short film about how our sofas are made.
