About Us

The Designer Sofa is based in Long Eaton Derbyshire, an area associated with the production of fine upholstery. Our showroom and factory is situated a few minutes from J25 of the M1.

The difference between us and many companies seen on television and in newspaper advertisements is that we don’t use modern mass produced manufacturing techniques. We combine modern technology with the old tried and tested ways of making furniture that date back over half a century.

We put all our efforts into great designs, all made with Wade Coil springs and hardwood frames. Each piece of our handmade furniture that leaves our factory is made individually for our clients.

Our furniture is made to such a high standard we offer a 20 year construction guarantee.

Service is a key part of our beliefs, not only do we offer excellent furniture but also excellent customer service and advice.

With advice from one of our experienced team we can help you make the right choice.
