Designing the perfect bespoke sofa at our Manchester showroom

Amy's bespoke Waverley sofa in Linwood 'On The River Aqua' fabric

At Sofas & Stuff, our bespoke furniture collections offer something to suit every living space and occasion. Each piece is individually handmade in Britain, and can be upholstered in any fabric in the world, so when you design a sofa with us, the world really is your oyster. Whether you’re after a sofa bed to accommodate a last minute guest, or a snuggler to cosy up with a good book and hot chocolate in the coming cooler months, we’ll help you find just what you’re looking for.

This summer, we teamed up with interiors blogger Amy, who came along to our Manchester sofa store to start designing her own bespoke sofa.

In each of our 14 UK sofa stores, we have a wide range of sofa styles to choose from, but when we showed Amy our Waverley sofa, it was love at first sight! Featuring a classic British scroll arm and comfy seat cushions, we can see why she adores this style. Next up, Amy set off to choose her fabric.

After browsing our extensive fabric library packed with relaxed linens and indigenous patterned fabrics, Amy chose this beautiful On The River Aqua Linwood fabric. With help from design consultants Suzi and Pat, Amy found the perfect sofa with the plush patterned velvet she was looking for. It’s even stain resistant, so with two young boys and a dog, she doesn’t need to worry about mucky paws or sticky fingers, as these are just a wipe away!⁠

Has Amy’s gorgeous velvet sofa inspired you to start designing your own?
