Bespoke Options

Bespoke sofas designed for a contemporary home by ECOSOFA

Because we’re master upholsterers, every piece you buy from us is crafted by hand in our workshop. We hope the sofas you see on this site give you a flavour of what we do, but we’re also more than happy to create bespoke designs and one-off pieces subject to copyright. Just talk to us about how we can bring your ideas to life or send us a photograph or drawing. Telephone Roger on 0115 9786699.

Fabrics
Browse over 15,000 fabrics in our Nottingham showroom with approximately 40 collections containing a minimum of 75% natural fibres (by weight) which allows Ecosofa to make our sofas using all natural paddings and comply with UK Fire Regulations.  The natural materials listed below, or any combination, will permit the use of an interliner and negate the need to use fire retardant chemicals.
