The Construction Process

Have Your Sofa Made Exactly The Way You Want It.

Hardwood Frames

The arms of all furniture are covered with 40mm high density fire retardant foam to maintain shape and provide maximum comfort. Chair and sofa arms are then wrapped in another 25mm of high grade top foam, fibre is put on top of foam before being finally covered in fibre then fabric.

This process reduces friction between the layers of foam and the outer fabric, which ensures there will be no internal wear on the fabric from continual use.

Seat cushions are designed to your own specification, you are then able to choose between channel wrap, foam and Du Pont Qualifill fibre cushions, pocket sprung cushions with 63 individual springs in each cushion or Chinese duck feather filling.

Wade Coil Springs

The springs we use in all our sofas and chairs are Wade coil springs, these are used to ensure extra comfort as well as durability and these come as standard with a 20 year guarantee.

Why is this so important?

All of your weight goes straight down onto the spring and will be the first thing to fail if the spring is not of high quality. For this reason we use the highest quality springs to ensure a quality product for the lifetime of the product!

We take your comfort very seriously and aim to customise each sofa and chair as much as you require.
