Hi, I'm Andrew. I founded the company, and
mostly do the fun stuff around here; that's what my colleagues say
anyway. Together, we are Sofas & Stuff.
I've been in the sofa business since 1979, when
matching three-piece suites in Dralon were all the rage. Most of my
colleagues however weren't even born then.
Between us however we know a lot about good
looking, good quality, really comfortable British sofas that last.
Want to know more? Have a look at things we know about sofas.
More importantly we wanted you to benefit
our expertise, so we went online and became
Sofas & Stuff.
Fittleworth, the beautiful West Sussex
village that is home to our office.
Here are a few things we believe in.
Our goal is to design beautifully made, great
value sofas that last. Like dogs, sofas are not just for Christmas;
we need them to age gracefully with us, becoming old family
We hand make most of our sofas in our workshops
outside Nottingham. This means we are in complete control of the
whole process from drawing board to delivery, using manufacturing
techniques honed over hundreds of years. No new fangled Chinese
short cuts for us.
We also know that most people want to bounce
around on a sofa before committing to buying one.
Every one of us is after all a different shape,
so really comfy for me, can be utter torment for you.
That's why we have showrooms. But not showrooms
as you have seen them before, or highly rented shops on noisy,
dirty high streets. At Sofas & Stuff you will find beautiful
barns in the countryside, where rents are 1/5th of most of our
competitors shops, so, as a result, you get much cheaper sofas.
It's simple really when you think about it.
It also means that you can have a great day out
as well as just coming to see us. Our barns tend to be near a great
pub, where we are all to be found at 6.05 on Friday evenings, and
are in areas perfect for walking energetically after lunch, for
those so inclined.
We do all this because we think it will make
you happy. None of us however are perfect, and sometimes not all of
our customers are totally happy. This is why, if you buy a sofa in
a house fabric and you don't like it, we won't argue we just take
it back, and either refund you in full, or let you choose something
else. This keeps us on our toes, I can assure you, as we hate
unhappy customers, and unhappy sofas, homeless, returning to our
