gold fabric custom sofa

Custom sofas, settees and couches have the same meaning which is for a comfortable seat of various dimensions and fabrics. We can supply you a custom seating arrangement for a reception area or banqueting hall. These sofas, settees and couches are manufactured in the United Kingdom and can be customized to match existing soft seating or for making a statement.

As well as a very diverse range of fabrics that include vinyls, wool mix, real and faux leathers, we can also use the COM option where you supply your material.

This is available for clients who wish to send in their fabric to us for upholstery. If you have heavy pattern repeated fabric or real leather, please advise our sales team, as this may increase material requirements. Alternatively, we can provide a wide array of contract suitable fabrics & leathers which fit into the following groupings:

  • Range A: House Faux Leather
  • Range B: Standard Faux Leather / House Fabric
  • Range C: Standard Fabric / Standard Real Leather
