GREAT BRITISH SOFAS SINCE 1981

 My family has been making Great British Sofas and Chairs for three generations and we remain an independent family run upholstery business to this day. We believe passionately in the skills and expertise of our 200 strong British workforce, most of whom have been with us for over 15 years and a third over 20 years. All our sofas and chairs are hand crafted in one of our three workshops located in the beautiful South Wales Valleys. We don’t sell cheap imports from the Far East or Eastern Europe and we don’t sell upholstery made by other manufacturers. That way we have complete control over the manufacturing process, and by manufacturing only in the UK and delivering direct to the public we can guarantee a level of quality, value for money and service beyond any cheap import.

You won't find our designs in your local furniture retailer. We prefer to sell our products direct to the public, thereby cutting out the retail middlemen and their considerable overheads. That way, we can offer our sofas and chairs at a fraction of the price of similar quality products available from your local retailer.

We are delighted to confirm that we have, at long last, been allowed to reopen our Crumlin workshop showroom. We are open Monday to Saturday 9am to 5pm and Sunday 10am to 4pm. We are also offering virtual showroom appointments for those who are unable to travel. Please call us on 01495 244 226 to book your virtual appointment with one of our non-pushy sales team.

Our Call Centre is open between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm on Saturday and 10am to 4pm on Sunday. We will be open between 10am and 4pm on New Year's Day. You can also contact us online via live chat, through our contact us page and via Facebook and Instagram. 

Our current delivery timescale is 8 to 10 weeks for new fabric furniture orders and 10 to 12 weeks for new leather furniture orders. We appreciate that this timescale is longer than normal due to the unprecedented challenges that we face during the pandemic. We are extremely grateful for your patience and understanding. All our sofas and chairs are hand made to order in the UK and this does take time. As they say, "good things come to those who wait"!

 Our usual delivery procedures have been altered to safeguard both our delivery teams and our customers.  Please see our website delivery page for more details on our new safety procedures. 

Some of our usual response times will be a little slower than normal during these very difficult times. We really appreciate your patience in bearing with us and allowing us more time to fulfil your order and respond to your queries.
