We were struggling to find both the design and quality from what seemed to be an endless stream of retailers and manufactures until we started working with Taz and his team. We’ve just taken delivery of two sofas to my wife’s design, and we are beyond delighted with the end result. It’s a refreshing change to work with a team who are clearly masters at their craft so thank you all.

After trawling around all of the mainstream furniture shops and being met by a wall of grey, we decided to visit "The Designer Sofa" in the hopes of being able to have something individual made to suit our own taste. Taz was extremely helpful from our first visit, very knowledgeable and he went the extra mile to make sure the finished sofas were exactly what we wanted. Included in our brief was that we wanted something light coloured and elegant but that would stand up to wear and tear from our 2 year old grandson and any more we may have in the future! Taz assured us that the fabric we had chosen with his help would be very durable and easy to clean. This was borne out on our grandsons first visit after we had taken delivery of the sofas. The squashed blueberries on the seat and arms came off with just a wipe of soapy water just as Taz had said. We are very happy with our sofas and would not hesitate to recommend "The Designer Sofa" to anyone. Thank you to Taz and the whole team. Keith and Terry Butler, Sawley.

Superb service throughout. Simply cannot fault the sofa. Being able to have this made to our sizes in our choice of fabric whilst having the benefit of your experience in designing what we wanted - perfect. The guys who delivered it were really careful (much appreciated) and took it up 2 flights of stairs with great good humour and no complaints. Better than we imagined and we had high expectations! Fantastic quality and customer experience.

Response from The Designer Sofa
We do what we can to help. You defiantly need a sense of humour, to get one of our sofas up two flights of steps, any chance you can move to a bungalow for your next order. Taz

It is always a pleasure seeing returning customers. over the years we have never changed our core beliefs of quality and putting the customer first. Our quality is just as good now, as it was 20year+ ago. I don't think any other furniture Manufacture can say that, and we are deeply proud of that fact. Thank you so much, Taz

Found The Designer Sofa after being refused entry to our previous suppliers empty showroom as we didn’t have an appointment! From the first moment we were made welcome by Zak who showed us around and let us try several sofas out, he even ordered samples of fabric to be delivered to home for us. On a further visit we met Taz who once again made us very welcome, this resulted in an order and delivery was bang on time and the quality of the sofa is unbelievably good. Even a follow up visit to discuss a query was met positively and gave a great result. Service and quality are second to none and we would certainly recommend Taz and his team to anyone in the market for a quality hand made product. Thanks to everyone at The Designer Sofa for a great experience

This family run business is simply amazing. We had our large corner suite cushions & scatter cushions replaced. From start to finish, nothing was too much trouble, & they actually went above & beyond for utter perfection. we are so happy with the end result, we would not hesitate in recommending this company.

Utter perfection is what we try for, and I think we hit it 99% of the time. Nobody is perfect lol. Taz

My wife and l wanted a custom made sofa and chair in leather, after some research we decided to give the designer sofa people a go. We like to use local businesses when we can and we were not disappointed, from the moment we walked in Taz made us feel really welcome and listened to our design ideas with interest, he advised us on style and materials but was not in the slightest bit pushy The order was placed and a few weeks later we got the call to go to the showroom and look at the finished article we were definitely not disappointed with the craftsmanship and quality were there to see. The same day the furniture was delivered ( free of charge )by two of the politest lads you could wish to meet they carefully placed the furniture exactly where we wanted it It looks brilliant If you're looking to buy bespoke furniture you won’t do better than Taz and the team at The Designer Sofa, they aren’t the cheapest out there but in our opinion, based on what we received pound for pound they are definitely in the top one.

Clearly a 'centre of excellence' where customers are clearly 1st and centre in all they do. I read the earlier reviews regarding this company and decided to give it a go - and I wasn't disappointed! I emailed my furniture details together with photos and what it was I wanted to achieve. Zak replied with an in depth explanation of what it is the company would do and a clear unambiguous estimate of the costs. It couldn't have been clearer and frankly I couldn't have been happier. Absolutely a company who will, and deserves to do well. Thank you!
