Sofa Manufacturing

The DesignerSofas4U Process

Over twenty years ago we made a conscious decision - to adopt the best traditional methods and practices of furniture manufacture to produce the highest quality pieces. Here we've outlined the main stages each piece of our hand-made furniture goes though:

  • Design proposal
  • Prototyping
  • Blueprint finalisation
  • Frame construction
  • Foam sculpting
  • Upholstering
  • Buttoning
  • Finishing
  • Quality checking
  • Packing
  • Delivery

Experienced craftsmen and women oversee each stage of our manufacturing process to maintain the DesignerSofas4U high standards of quality. We take pride in our work, and our 11-stage process reflects this. We're so confident in the quality of our furniture that we offer a free 12-month warranty with each piece, and by following our aftercare guides we can assure our work will retain its quality for years to come.


DesignerSofas4U only use the finest quality leathers in upholstering our furniture. All leather hides are exclusive top grain cowhides sourced from premium suppliers. Each hide is unique with individual characteristics showing signs of healed scars, growth marks, areas of differing fibre density and hair pore structure. These hallmarks are signs of the quality of the leather. As with all leathers it matures with age and use, developing a patina that enhances its beauty even further.


Frames are constructed on-site from select kiln-dried hardwood to eradicate defects and structural weaknesses. All structural stress points, including corners, are reinforced with corner blocks that are firmly glued in place. The construction of our frames is an indication of the traditional methods our manufacturing experts employ.


We consider the safety of our furniture to be equally as important as its comfort. To this end, the foam used in the manufacturing process can withstand burning cigarettes. As standard, all of our foams are tested after reconditioning for:

  • Flammability
  • Density evenness
  • Tear and tensile strength
  • Compaction, height loss and durability
