About us


We've loved sofas for 30 years, and have gathered bags of experience up along the way. We've learned that our customers want real information about the sofa they've got their eye on, not a ‘must end Sunday' sale that in actual fact, goes on forever.
We guarantee our best price every day of the year and so our customers choose their sofa because it is perfect for their homes and whoever they share it with!
