About

We are a family run business and have been in the sofa making industry for over 30 years, so we know a thing or two about making a sofa that is both stylish, elegant and unbelievably comfortable.
It all began in 1986. We started renovating second-hand sofas, deconstructing them and giving them a new lease of life. As time went on, we realised that we could do a much better job at constructing these sofas. We decided to do just that; make our own, how we wanted to make them, to our own time scale and to a far higher standard.

Our favourite sofas to work on had been those manufactured in the 1950’s. We loved their use of coil springs and beech frames, however they were lacking comfort, so we wanted to combine the right design with the right construction- and comfort was a key factor (Mike is extremely particular when it comes to sofas and comfort, so rest assured that comfort is a priority).

Finally, we had designed ourselves a range of sofas we were really happy with, all we needed was to get some great fabrics and we were ready to go. Devonshire Sofas was born; and has been creating bespoke sofas for families all over the country, ever since.

All our sofas are made to order, so they are completely unique. Handcrafted in the UK by artisans, using Solid Beech frames, which are glued, screwed and dowelled for ultimate strength. The frames are naturally robust, which enables us to incorporate a fully coil sprung system, which supports the seating cushions. Comfort is a relatively subjective matter, and of course we all come in different shapes and sizes, therefore we are able to tailor the dimensions to meet your exact needs and requirements.

We have worked extremely hard over the years to incorporate all the key ingredients into our sofas: construction, comfort and design. The service we provide to each and every customer is as bespoke as the sofas you’re buying. We continually strive to offer an impeccable service and a memorable buying experience.

Our showroom is based in Devon, where we hold a selection of sofas which reflect our eclectic fabric selection and design variations. All samples of our fabrics are on site and we will meet with you and carefully go through your design requirements. You won’t be rushed into any decision making- we know this kind of purchase takes time. While you’re with us you may wish to visit our award-winning café, to grab a coffee and bite to eat. Our Devonshire cream teas are to die for!
