Ours are collapsing and uncomfortable. At some stage must replace them.

So, anyone used them? Value for money? Comfort? Service? Quality?

Wonderful quality IMO - ours is fabulous. Very, very comfy. Huge too!

Cheers aloha. One good vote so far. Anyone else?

We are about to buy one sofa, which model is yours? (just to keep inmind that doesn't come with a recommendation )

Can't remember - it's years old and as good as new - it is a four seater we chose the shape from a sort of menu - very classic, sort of Howard shape with higher arms upholstered in raspberry red chenille (not fuzzy, just not totally smooth). Dark wood legs, brass wheels. It really is lovely. It must be seven years old now and I put the covers in the washing machine (not supposed to, but it does them no harm) and it looks perfect.

I have a friend who has a sofa and armchair and was always v pleased with them. I haven't been there for ages (or asked her about them, can't think why!) but they seemed very good quality and you get a huge choice of fabrics, don't you?

She bought them at least 15 years ago so it would be interesting to know how they are now - I need to email her anyway so I will ask for you

I saw a site someone had recommended on here Ixia Interiors I think it was. Recent thread about sofas. Anyway they stocked the sofas we bought 18 months ago from Sofa Workshop at a much lower price, there was no mention of delivery costs though which may have been quite high but I'm sure it'd still be cheaper.
Our sofas are lovely & I felt really good value although we did get them in the sale & on aforementioned site they are cheaper. They were also on one of these makeover shows as an example of the girls dream sofa but she couldn't afford them. Lots of people admire them & everyone presumes they were extortionate.
Unfortunately we did have a problem with delivery & furniture which we should have had by end of August we didn't get till about 2 weeks before Xmas, they did compensate us with a free £300 footstool though but I had to fight a bit because initially they offered £50 cash.

We got ours about 3 years ago, they are nice in lovley condition and are totally machine washable so if a LO or a BO spills something on a cushion you can put it straight in the machine. I remember delivery was fine as well.

TBH DP can't stand them, I ordered them on the net (had no car at the time) and now I wouldn't chose them, just trying to convince him we need new ones now

Yes. 2 huge sofas which are now 8 years old and still looking great, and a sofabed which is 3 years old and still looks good and is very comfortable to sleep on. Would not hesitate to buy again.

Message from friend:

<<Still got the sofa and chair tho they're a bit tired looking now and when I've spent money on a few other things, I'll either have them re-upholstered or more likely get shot of and buy new. But they've done sterling service!>>

Thank you people. An overall thumbs up I think.
