Top quality sofa, made to measure, choice of thousands of fabrics and cost no more than lesser quality sofas at some high street shops. Plus a 20-year guarantee. It's nice to find people who care about what they make and sell these days. Chris Jowett

I can only describe my experience from start to finish as utterly fantastic. They made me feel so welcome and accommodated my every need. Once i got the chance view my new sofa i was blown away, just knowing that it had been produced for me from scratch is fantastic. No comparison to the big chains!! Personally this is the first sofa i have had made, but my family have had roughly 5 units. Every single one is just sublime!! I would urge anybody who is currently shopping around chains such as DFS and Sofology to pay these guys a visit. Of course they are a tad more expensive, but in the grand scheme of things the value for money is off the scale. Needless to say, i am ecstatic. Thanks so much to Ian and Taz for their fantastic service throughout :)

Response from The Designer Sofa
Thank you so much your review it is of the scale too. We want every customer who walks through the door to have a good experience and your review helps me to know we are getting things right. You are right you cannot get this quality on the high street, if you divide the money by how long you will want to own one of bespoke sofas you will not get better value anywhere. Smart shoppers like yourself do not get taken in by all the high street offer's, you just want quality and service at the right price. Thank you for your review. Ian and the Team

Very helpful and a delight to deal with. Not pushy at all. Only the best wood used for frames and quality springs so the end product is built to last. What a pleasure to find someone so dedicated to ensuring that the customer is happy with an item that after all takes up a large space in your home and you need to love!!! I can't recommend them enough. John & Katie

Had our Belvedere sofas from you years ago and now they need some TLC thank you for restoring them. Highest quality extremely pleased with the result. Excellent workmanship nice to meet the team who worked on our suite. It's our second suite from designer sofa would recommend to everyone.

Response from The Designer Sofa
We are now getting so many of our customers returning to us after 10 to 20years of having their sofas from us. They either want new or like you want their furniture re-upholstering back to new condition. Even though your sofa was 14years old, it has been lovingly returned to its former glory. Amazingly because we have re-upholstered your work it still has 6 years of its 20-year guarantee to run, but it will last for many years to come and will outlast the furniture you get from the chain stores today.

Thankyou for our new sofa. It really has the WOW factor in our lounge.We had searched everywhere for a sofa to fit the space available. Only after speaking to you did we realise the options open to us with a bespoke design. The sofa fits the space exactly and looks fantastic. We were impressed by the care you took to check all the measurements to ensure an exact fit. Delivery was before Christmas, just as you had promised. The sofa was the final touch to our newly decorated lounge. We would confidently recommend you to anyone.

We are sending as promised some pictures of our `new` 3 piece suite. It is hard to believe that this is our old one re-built! You have done an absolutely marvellous job – we are delighted. Friends who have seen it so far can`t believe what a magnificent job you have carried out and you have been such a friendly firm to deal with. Needless to say we shall certainly recommend The Designer Sofa to anyone who wants a new suite.

I want to thank you for the building and delivery of our 2 Jordan sofas. They are robust and constructed to a very high standard, just what we need with a lively young family. The customer service from start to finish has been friendly and the advice has been both helpful and professional without being pushy. They are stylish pieces of furniture which are very comfy and would look great in any setting.
