any fabric in the world

In our showrooms, we morph rapidly from being an online retailer of sofas, to a literal wonderland of colour, shape & texture, where people who adore sofas, chat and spend their days. Our Workshops are just outside Nottingham; we are pretty obsessed with British is best... at least when it comes to all things Sofa.

Find our fabrics on the site too plain?

Then we can knock your socks off with spots and stripes; florals or fifties mobiles; velvets or printed linens... the choice is literally endless.

Got a roll of much loved fabric at home that you would die to put on a sofa?

No worries, as my Aussie partner might say, we'll soon show you what shape it 
looks best on.

British Made
british made spec

We make these sofas in our factory in Nottingham. We're pretty proud of this.

This is not the case, sadly, with most of our competitors, who use mass production facilities in Eastern Europe or the Far East; the UK, and our factory in particular, is still a powerhouse in making really beautiful, great quality sofas, using traditional skills honed over hundreds of years.

This means we can do various things for you.

We get our sofas to you quickly - no hanging around waiting for a container from China, or a truck from Europe. In fact we deliver in about half the time of most of our competitors - 30 days approx.

 

Fancy a beautiful velvet devoré, a 50's linen print, or a Scottish wool plaid, and in the time it takes to plump your seat cushions we will have it in production in our factory. Got your own fabric that you want to put on one of our sofas... yes you're right, its no trouble whatsoever.

Made to measure

Speak to us, and that special size 150cm wide sofa to fit the sitting room bay window will also not be beyond our capabilities.

Delivery Time

Delivery in around 5 weeks*. If we are making something special for you, please add an extra two weeks to this lead time.

Delivery Time Slots

A week before your delivery you will receive a call from our warehouse to tell you the day we will be arriving. We then give you a second call, or if we have a mobile number, a text, the day before, to tell you the two hour time slot for your delivery. Should anything untoward occur and we are running late, the drivers assistant will of course ring you again to keep you informed.

Delivery Costs

Mainland England and Scotland £49, Wales £69, for harder to reach places (please see our delivery page for more information) we will be very happy to give you a quote, just give us a call. Offshore UK and Ireland, please give us a ring and we will recommend a delivery partner for you.

We store orders in our warehouse for a maximum of three weeks only. After three weeks we charge all customers £8 per item per week.

Returns Policy

If it's not the perfect sofa, or for that matter the perfect chair, sofabed, chaise or footstool for you, we take it (or them) back, for free, and give you a refund. Guaranteed.

This applies to all sofas and chairs in fabrics and colour ways, displayed on our website, only - ie, it does not apply to designer or wholesalers fabrics that you may have specifically chosen from one of our showrooms.

Unfortunately corner units that are made or assembled especially for you are non-returnable, non-refundable.

*Subject to fabric availability.

Superb sofas and stress-free shopping!

Really thrilled with our 2 new sofas. Even my husband who hates shopping raved about the experience of choosing new sofas at The Barn. Very friendly and knowledgeable service - brilliant range of sofas in all shapes and sizes with a wide choice of fabric options. Delivery was prompt and efficient. The delivery men even unpacked the sofas! I couldn't recommend Sofas and Stuff more highly.

Helpful friendly staff, lovely selection of well made sofas.

We visited the Petworth showroom a few times, and on each occasion the staff were very helpful. Offered advice on fabric, an weren't pushy at all. Loved the choice of sofas, and we are very pleased with ours. I was getting a bit impatient though, 9 weeks delivery seemed to drag on!

The delivery men didn't wipe their feet as they came in or offered to take their shoes off, as it had been raining.

Many thanks for the lovely sofa and very expensive, one of a kind, foot stool.

A pleasant and enjoyable experience

Glad we went to sofas and stuff they had a good selection of furniture and the choices of fabrics was brilliant.The staff were very helpful as well.All in all a pleasant experience.The only hic up was on the delivery our furniture came on two seperate days a week apart.

Lots of choice, lots of help and not lots of money

Walked into the showroom and there were lots of really nice sofas, such a change from most places where you hate about 95% of what is on offer. Staff were relaxed and knowledgeable. There were toys for the kids, lots of time to make up our minds and no hard sell. Sofa arrived on time and the whole delivery went very smoothly. Sofa was put exactly where I wanted it and it looks great and is really comfy.

Very good value for a bespoke sofa with friendly and helpful service

It was just luck that I came cross Sofa and Stuff when I happened to notice an advert in Sussex Life. I visited the barn near Storrington and it was really helpful to be able to try out every sofa I the range. Sofa and Stuff were very helpful at sourcing various fabric samples to help me choose the sofas and also changing everything from feathers to fibre to accommodate an allergy issue. The sofa was delivered within the timescale indicated when I placed the order and the delivery itself went very smoothly.

Having now used the sofas for a couple of weeks I am very happy with them - they look good and are very comfortable.

Choosing sofas in style

Our positive experience of Sofas and Stuff started when we visited the barn at Woodchester near Stroud. We had to make a special trip from North Devon so we took a risk in making the trip but the website promised a good range of sofas to look at and we were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful - coffee and brownies very welcoming too. We were given plenty of space to browse and think about what we were looking for. We didn't feel under any pressure to make definite decisions at the time and took away fabric swatches to ensure that we did make the right choice. We did take away all the information we needed so that once we had confirmed our choice of fabric we could ring back and place an order very smoothly.

If I was to be hyper-critical I would perhaps take away half a star because we did not hear anything about a delivery date until nearly the eight weeks was up and we had to make enquiries. We contacted Woodchester who responded promptly and chased up. Within hours we had heard from the delivery team and knew when to expect our sofas. It would perhaps have been nice to have some interim contact between the order and the final delivery information although we appreciate that we are paying for custom-made sofas and it is not always possible to be precise about final delivery. Nevertheless, the sofas did arrive within the 6-8 weeks promised.

The delivery team were excellent - manoeuvred our doorways without any fuss and made sure we were happy.

We are now very comfortable with our two Coniston sofas.

Sofas and Stuff made it all so easy

Sofas and Stuff were helpful from start to finish. The staff were friendly but left us to spend as much time looking and deciding as we wanted with cups of tea to keep us going. Nothing was too much trouble. So thank you for such a great service. The delivery was painless and the guys were efficient and cheerful.

The sofas were just as we hoped and we are really pleased with the quality, comfort and the look.

So a big thank you to all the staff at sofas and stuff..

Friendly, efficient and reliable.

The whole process from start to finish was pleasant. The showroom ladies were knowledgeable and friendly. After we ordered our sofas, the time frame was consisely explained by email, and the delivery team were just as polite and efficient. An all round good experience, and our sofas look fabulous. Our dog thought so too, within minutes of delivery we found him curled up asleep on one, and he is never allowed on the sofa!

Fantastic

We brought our sofas from the shop in West Sussex. We were looked after very well and everyone was very helpful at advising us on which sofas to get. The delivery men were very friendly and efficient. We were very happy with the service and love our sofas.

From start to finish excellent service.

Well made, comfortable sofas

This is the second time we have used Sofas & Stuff. We were so impressed by the first three sofas we bought that when it came to replacing one in another room there was no question of which company we would use. This one is a different style but ideal for the room, and with so many fabrics to choose from we found one which fitted the decor perfectly.

Excellent sofas AND CHAIR, highly recommend the service from start to finish

 

Smart showroom in Fulham, with a good selection of sofas on display and a good many options on colour/texture. Helpful staff throughout.

 

Manufacture took a fair while- but it came from within the UK, and we were kept aware of the rough dates to expect things. Delivery was smooth, and the team were helpful. Very pleased with the end product- and all at a good price.

Dear Sofas and Stuff,
I have just recieved 2 sofas from you. From the moment I walked into your showroom at Chilton Foliat, I knew that my search for sofas was over!
The Barn was a joy, beautifully laid out, enough to see, but not cluttered. The sales woman, knowledgable, friendly and helpful. Also I was offered a perfect cup of coffee..... I was sold.
I was kept informed of the progress of the order, and the sofas arrived exactly as expected. This was something of a miracle as I life in a very isolated spot, and many a delivery van has been lost in the wilds of Oxfordshire.
All in all, a great experience, a 5 out of 5.

Denny, April 2013

We are delighted with the quality of our three new sofas. We received, polite, friendly and professional service when we visited the showroom near Harrogate, and this was followed by a prompt reply to any enquiries that we subsequently made. We had to wait a little longer than we had hoped for delivery but this was because the fabric that we selected was unavailable at the time of ordering. The guys who made the actual delivery arrived on time and unpacked and installed the furniture with extreme courtesy and care.

Wendy, March 2013

I visited the Yorkshire store.  The service was excellent and Claire was very helpful on fabric choices.  For one sofa we used the standard fabric and for a chair we selected our own fabric.  Communication via email was very efficient and the whole process was very smooth and pleasant.  I would definitely recommend Sofas and Stuff and use them again in the future.  5 out of 5!

 

I was called 48 hours before delivery and given a two hour slot, but as I work five minutes from home they rang me enroute.  The only negative was that it was a rainy day and the delivery men walked into the house with their boots on, across the new cream carpet!  Ideally, they should have shoe covers or a couple of sheets to cover the carpet.  They did assemble the furniture and take away all the packaging

I loved everything about Sofas and Stuff - their Sussex showroom is delicious and I wanted one of nearly everything!. Staff very helpful and knowledgeable and my sofa and chair were delivered within the time promised and are gorgeous as well as being of 
a very high quality. The best sofa 
company I have used.

We visited the West Sussex showroom one wet Sunday in June . The service in the showroom was excellent. Coffee provided and the staff answered all our queries with knowledge. We placed an order for 2 sofas.
The after care was frustrating as our email and home address had been written incorrectly on the invoices and order despite me spelling our surname and address .It took two further attempts to get it right..
I also ordered some extra material which was sent a metre short .I was told that the showroom ordered the material by phone and either someone had written it down wrong or they had said the wrong quantity, neither was my fault..initially said they would order me the extra metre.I pointed out that I needed it in one piece .This was rectified but meant I had to wait for the correct amount and then had to return the first roll back to the show room which was a 30 mile journay
The sofas have arrived , very comfortable, and just what we wanted. The delivery men phoned when they were 30 minutes away and were very friendly and accommodating . I was overall very pleased with my experince with sofas and stuff. Just need to concentrate on small details which can niggle a customer.

"The Sussex showroom was pressure free and dare I say comfortable. Delivery was delayed for a few weeks due to a batch faulty fabric, well I would rather wait than have a dodgy sofa, but it was delayed. The sofa itself is perfect and I loved it on sight and still do. The delivery guys where polite and kept their word. So apart from the wait the whole thing was a pleasant experience. I would use them again."

Absolutely love my new sofas! The whole shopping experience at the Fittleworth Showroom was very enjoyable and the staff were friendly, helpful but most of all they were patient!! The sofas were ready before the 6 week delivery period and the delivery guys were brilliant and let me choose the delivery time 2 weeks in advance. I would recommend Sofas and Stuff to ANYONE to needs a new sofa and doens;t want the cheap rubbish available on the High Street. Thank you!!
