Any of our models can be made with legs as used on the Mozart and Alabama ranges

Will my selected sofa fit through the door to my living room
when this is likely to be a problem we can offer our models with detachable arms or we can build sofas in 2 sections which can be bolted together in situ. Those models with legs can be adapted to allow removal of the legs which often allows easy access

Can I supply my own fabric
Yes – so long as your choice is suitable and fit for purpose (we can advise)
How do I clean my upholstery
Regular vacuuming and turning of your cushions will help. Keep pets off and out of directly sunlight. Each fabric supplier will have recommendations – we would suggest using professional cleaners.
How can I pay
We will require a deposit by credit card or bank transfer when placing the order and the balance becomes due 5 working days before delivery
How much will it cost to have my furniture delivered
Once we know the selected pieces of furniture and have postcode details we will quote for two-man delivery
How long is delivery
We hand build the frames and upholstery; we do not mass produce or keep stock. Typical lead time would be between 8-12 weeks.

My sofa will be sat on a wooden floor; what can I do to stop it scratching
Legs and bun feet can be fitted with either felt pads or small metal glides
