About SofaSofa


A Great British Manufacturer since 1981

 My family has been making Great British Sofas and Chairs for three generations and we remain an independent family run upholstery business to this day. We believe passionately in the skills and expertise of our 200 strong British workforce, most of whom have been with us for over 15 years and a third over 20 years. All our sofas and chairs are made in one of our three workshops located in the beautiful South Wales Valleys. We don’t sell cheap imports from the Far East or Eastern Europe and we don’t sell upholstery made by other manufacturers. That way we have complete control over the manufacturing process, and by manufacturing only in the UK and delivering direct to the public we can guarantee a level of quality, value for money and service beyond any cheap import.

Buy direct from the manufacturer and cut out the retailer

As we manufacture all our furniture in house from the hardwood frame up and only sell direct to the public, cutting out the retail middleman, we are able to sell our sofas and chairs at prices substantially lower than our retailer competitors. We source all our raw materials, fabrics and leathers directly from the best component manufacturers, weavers and tanners around the World free from wholesaler mark ups.We don’t have any swanky London showroom (our showroom is located above one of our three production units in Crumlin, South Wales) or regional distribution centres to pay for and our prices are not loaded with hidden financial gimmicks such as interest free credit. Consequently when you buy a sofa direct from SofaSofa, you pay for the sofa free from hidden costs and retail margins loaded into the price. 

Guaranteed to last

We know that customer confidence is crucial when buying direct and some people find it difficult to buy a sofa they have only seen online and have not sat on. Our pioneering 21 day money back guarantee allows you to sit on the sofa of your choice in the place that matters most, your home, for three weeks before deciding to keep it. If you don’t like it we’ll take it back and give you a full refund, or exchange it to another design, or change the size or colour. Whatever you want, no problem.In addition to our 21 day home trial every sofa and chair from SofaSofa comes with a 2 year parts and labour warranty free of charge on all component parts including the fillings, feet, fabric, leather, and springing. In fact everything, right down to the brass tacks. Oh, and the hardwood frame comes with a 5 year guarantee free of charge too.

What makes SofaSofa different?

 You will find many retail and online sofa companies making similar claims about being a British manufacturer or having decades of upholstery expertise, but when you dig a bit deeper you discover that the sofas are made in Poland or they are actually a wholesaler with no manufacturing pedigree at all. We have been manufacturing in Britain and selling direct to the public for longer than any other UK upholstery company. We remain the only direct to public sofa manufacturer in the UK to supply sofas free from any hidden finance cost or retail overhead. Trading for three generations we like to think that we retain the core principles of any good family business: outstanding quality and value combined with a friendly and personal service.

And we think our designs are pretty special too!

Delivered direct anywhere on the UK mainland

From our highly skilled production team to our friendly call centre staff we like keeping things in house. It not only keeps costs down but we get to keep a close eye on the quality of our products and the efficiency of our service. This extends to our in house delivery service. A great delivery is essential to a great purchase experience and we know your time is valuable. So we provide a three hour timeslot at least a week before delivery. All our sofas and chairs are delivered by a two man delivery team direct to the room of your choice. Our delivery teams are fully housetrained and highly skilled in fitting furniture through the tightest of spots. And if they don’t you can change to a different model, size or have a full refund.

Eco sofas

As an environmentally responsible manufacture we sort and recycle all plastics and eligible waste materials. All packaging is returned to our workshops for recycling and we are working hard to create the first fully recycled sofa. All our British Made Sofas are made from non-tropical hardwoods, sourced from sustainable European forests. As a British Manufacturer we comply with all European environmental legislation and actively recycle wherever possible. Oh, and our furniture doesn't travel 5000 miles from China either. Delivering direct from our workshops rather than via a port, distribution centre or local retailer cuts out all needless fuel usage further reducing the carbon footprint of your new sofa

Over 70 sofa designs in fabric and leather

We have over 70 different designs and hundreds of fabric and leather options to choose from so hopefully you will find your perfect new sofa or chair within our range. If not, please let us know. We might be working on a new design or have something in our archive of designs that matches your exact requirements. We can create bespoke orders using non-standard fillings, fabrics and leathers on existing designs and we offer a totally custom made design service for large one-off orders. Whatever your requirements, please give us a call. We are a friendly bunch and would love to chat to you about your dream sofa.
