I have just purchased two bespoke sofa's from The Designer Sofa, both Taz and Zak were really helpful, excellent Customer Service. The Sofa's arrived on the due date as promised, excellent quality and well made. The delivery was Covid safe and done efficiently. Doubt I will need these Sofa's replacing, but would definitely recommend this company if you want good quality handmade sofa's. Thank you to all who had a hand in upholstering them. Many thanks.

After looking for the perfect set of sofas in what seemed like every retail store, and visiting many bespoke manufacturers, we arrived at The Designer Sofa. Taz was fantastic from the start with his knowledge and enthusiasm. We found our perfect sofa style and whereas we thought we knew what material we wanted,, we changed our minds after seeing a sofa in the showroom. As it was a suede type fabric, I was worried that it would not stand up to the crowds that come through our house, Taz gave me a sample to take home to spill anything and everything on it. We did, tea, coffee, red wine, curry ... wiped off, amazing. It was a joy to purchase from Taz, there was never any sales pressure. We love our two new large sofas and are planning for additional orders for chairs, cushions etc for the rest of the house. We won’t go elsewhere. I have recommended the store to friends and family. Thank you again Taz, Zach and the lovely team.

We would like to add our plaudits to all the other 5 star reviews. All that we can say has already been said in a far more eloquent fashion than I am able. Suffice to say that the Pandemic wait was worth it. Service from beginning to end exemplary. The finished product drew a wow from my son and certainly looks and feels like te real deal. Well done Zak and your team.

5stars really does not seem to do this company justice! From beginning to end Taz and Zac gave us a service second to none. We discussed every aspect of what we had in mind, and Zac even directed us to other manufacturers so that we could compare prices and quality. To be honest, our decision was never in doubt, their attitude had been so professional an reassuring. Changes and “tweaks” were made until we arrived at a design that we were totally happy with. The manufacturing process was equally open and welcoming! We were welcomed into their workshop to see our suite being made, and kept informed throughout, despite a pandemic! The finished product just passed all expectations. The quality of finish and standard of workmanship is superb, an reflects the obvious pride and are that these guys take in their product, down to the smallest details of pattern matching.If you have any hesitation - don’t - you will not be disappointed. Would wholeheartedly recommend this company - 10 stars!!!

Our chairs and sofabed have been finished to an exceptional standard. Hardly surprising given the pesonal service and high standards of 'The Designer Sofa'. In particular the upholster's attention to detail was remarkable. A really great job.

A big thank you to Taz, Zak, Haris and their team for creating an excellent sofa. The support and advice available was first class and importantly, honest and sincere. It was good to be able to meet the team who make the sofas and to see the high quality of materials and components used in the manufacture of my sofa. The selection of fabrics to choose from was phenomenal. Zak went the extra mile to help choose a fantastic fabric and was meticulous throughout the whole process from design to final product, a superb sofa.

I have just received my sofa and absolutely love it. It is exactly what I asked for. I cant thank Zak enough for all his help. This company is well worth visiting if you would like a bespoke sofa. They even took me around the factory to see the sofas being made which made me really confident they would do a good job and they did. Pure quality.

We are 100% satisfied with our two settees, we spent several hours deciding on size and sitting on the suites in the showroom, We then went home with lots of sample fabrics, then we decided colours etc. The settees were delivered and they are perfect everything we asked for. Taz his family and staff were brilliant all the way through, nothing was too much trouble, their extensive knowledge helped us get a fabulous settee. The aftercare is also excellent,we have a great product that still looks great, i wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

From the day we walked into the shop, the family have been so helpful. The chair and sofa we received is just as we wanted, nothing has been to much trouble, with a Christmas delivery after a delay obtaining materials due to world shortage. Second home visit to fit final order. I cannot recommend this company enough very professional and caring about their furniture.And more than happy to shop with them again.

After a lot of searching around for a sofa, I realised what I wanted, to what I actually needed was not going to materialise. I found an absolutely amazing company, who were willing to do exactly what I wanted, the colour I wanted too. Despite the current climate, they were still able to deliver. I can not speak highly enough about the quality, the comfort, the materials used were absolutely perfect, from beginning to end the whole team have been professional and thoughtful towards me as a customer, kept me updated with processes, never failed with responses. I had 2 pieces made to measure, I can only say how exceptionally pleased I am, that I choose this amazing company, they absolutely delivered the outcome as promised. So pleased, I would shout from the roof tops to say I strongly recommend them. If you want quality, style, bespoke with no corners cut, this is the place to be. Just to add professionalism is the icing on top. These guys surely deliver the result. Thank you so much, from one exceptionally happy customer.🤗

I have nothing but praise for Taz and his team. They more than fulfilled my expectations with an entirely new take on a chaise longue. Taz developed the design and it all worked, with a well constructed frame and beautifully upholstered. I can certainly recommend this business if you want to own something that lasts.

We are absolutely delighted with our sofa and cannot speak highly enough of the service from Taz and all the team. We had a nightmare with access to our cottage which meant a remodelling of the sofa which was done with speed and great good humour and without additional cost. The build and upholstery quality is superb. Forget all the high street ‘special deals’ and go straight to Long Eaton! A quite outstanding company.

We purchased our sofas over 7 years ago and they still look amazing. The fabric hasn’t faded or worn and the cushions are as firm as they were when new. Would definitely recommend! 👍🏼

Cannot speak too highly of these guys. From start to finish, the service we received in choosing our new suite was exemplary. Advice, ideas and even referrals to other showrooms so that we were able to feel completely satisfied with quality and value. Nothing was too much trouble and we made our decisions. Now we can't wait to see our suite. Highly recommend this company to anyone. A fabulous shopping experience!

We had been looking to replace our sofa and two armchairs for ages and we found The Designer Sofa Company by chance whilst visiting the showrooms of a large manufacturer opposite. We popped in and were immediately struck by their pride in the materials they use and in the skill they apply in hand making their furniture. They were incredibly helpful in explaining how good furniture is constructed (and how volume manufacturers often use other methods to save time). We took our time – they were very patient and we were not rushed – and ordered two sofas, one of which was to the bespoke size that we required. Prior to the agreed delivery date, the lockdown, because of the Covid-19 pandemic, started. We accepted that a delay was inevitable and was not their fault and we contacted Zac from time to time to check on progress once the lockdown was easing. When our sofas were ready, we visited Long Eaton to view them and confirm that we were happy with them. Extra customer care like this is very difficult to find nowadays. Taz is obviously passionate about the quality his company produces and wants his customers to be happy. The sofas arrived and we are delighted with them. The frames are very solid and obviously well-made and the cushions are very comfortable. Zac and his brother worked carefully to get them through several doorways and into our lounge. Thank you to Taz, Zac and the whole team for our wonderful new sofas.

If you are looking for good quality and excellent service, look no further. After looking at The Designer Sofa shop, we wouldn't go any where else.. After ordering 2 sofas, they were delayed due to the ,"Virus ". I became very stressed and worried, had we chosen the right fabric and the right style?? Eventually we were able to see our sofas. I was reduced to tears!!! They looked amazing they were soooooo comfortable. They ooze quality. We will be forever grateful that we found this small, family business, where quality is there priority. Many thanks to all who took part in the manufacture of our our wonderful furniture.
