Where to start…

Unless you’ve had your dream sofa definitively mustered up in your mind for years, it can be daunting to know where to begin when designing your very own sofa. So, we spoke to Mick Quinn, co-director and furniture designer to find out the kind of things people choose to modify, and why. 

What are some examples of things we offer in our bespoke service? 

“For all of our sofas, you can modify pretty much everything. Our customers can choose any height back, width, depth, arm width and whether they want it to double up as a sofa bed. They can also opt for hypoallergenic interiors rather than feathers and even specify the cushion density. Oh, and of course we have thousands of fabrics, too!”

What reasons have people given for their modifications?

“Everyone has different tastes and requirements and people can request modifications based on both form and function. For example, some people want a rounded arm for comfort when lying down while others prefer a wider, square arm to offer an extra seat when hosting. We’ve had people request a higher back to support their head when they’re watching television and others ask for a lower back for a more contemporary aesthetic. We’ve had high-profile vegans come to us because we offer hypoallergenic vegan interiors and quirky interior designers personalise a sofa with contrast coloured piping and overstitching.”
