Our two small workshops are staffed by time served craftsmen and our models are made from locally sourced fillings and hardwood timber frames. As one of the few remaining bespoke sofa manufacturers 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 likewise offer customers a complete after sales service to ensure they are completely satisfied with what we have sent them.
We have recently designed and developed our own unique models based around the most popular design movements of the last 100 years – that of Art Deco and Art Nouveau.
We are the only company in the UK specialising in this retro style and have had only positive feedback, more especially from hotels and interior designers.
Because we serve our customers directly we can guarantee a superior quality product at some of the lowest prices in the industry. Most of our models can be made for delivery within 6-7 weeks (with Art Deco at 10-12 weeks) and our frames and materials come with a complete 5-year guarantee*.
In order to bring customers a wider choice of models we have over many years partnered with a high end factory in Italy in offering the most upto date European style designs.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch as we are only too happy to speak with you and assist in any way we can.
We welcome all enquiries, and if it is a custom design you require ask to speak to Sam Neumann on 0161 667 9562

Really good communication from the start. We were able to talk through colour options, order swatches and get absolute measurements for two sofas. We are delighted with the result - two fabulous Art Deco sofas which are stylish, comfortable and really have that wow factor!
