Beautiful Bespoke sofas that last a lifetime

Welcome to Newman & Bright

We are bespoke manufacturers of sofas and chairs based in Manchester. As one of the few remaining upholstery workshops in the North West we can tailor our sofas to our customers’ needs and are small enough to give genuine care and attention to individual orders

We are also unique in having designed and developed a complete range of models based on the Art Deco and Art Nouveau movements of the 1920s & 1930s.

We work closely with our customers to provide their specific needs and our end goal is to ensure they are completely happy with the product we deliver to them.
