Get The Right Size For Your Room

We do have standard sizes for our various models but you can choose to have the sofa or chair made to your own size requirements, we can alter the height, width and depth without any fuss or excessive cost to you.


A Frame Built To Last

Every frame is constructed using kiln dried hardwood to prevent any warping or twisting.

All chairs and sofas are carefully glued, screwed and doweled. The corners of every piece of furniture that leaves our factory are fully timber braced to maintain a chair or sofas shape over a lifetime of use and with a 20 year construction guarantee.

All frames are canvas covered and webbed. Our chairs and sofas are fully sprung with traditional Wade coil spring units for extra comfort and durability,wth a 10 year guarantee.


Comfort is Crucial

The arms of all furniture are covered with 40mm high density fire retardant foam to maintain shape and provide maximum comfort. Chair and sofa arms are then wrapped in another 25mm of high grade top foam, fibre is put on top of foam before being finally covered in fibre then fabric.

This process reduces friction between the layers of foam and the outer fabric, which ensures there will be no internal wear on the fabric from continual use.

Seat cushions are designed to your own specification, you are then able to choose between channel wrap, foam and Du Pont Qualifill fibre cushions, pocket sprung cushions with 63 individual springs in each cushion or Chinese duck feather filling.


The springs we use in all our sofas and chairs are Wade coil springs, these are used to ensure extra comfort as well as durability and these come as standard with a 10 year guarantee.

Why is this so important?
All of your weight goes straight down onto the spring and will be the first thing to fail if the spring is not of high quality. For this reason we use the highest quality springs to ensure a quality product for the lifetime of the product!

 We take your comfort very seriously and aim to customise each sofa and chair as much as you require.
