Sofarooms is an independent, family-run business, based in Exeter. Specialising in making high quality, upholstered furniture and soft furnishings, there’s also an array of fabrics to choose from. Owner Paul Kite says: “Our showroom is located next to our workshop, in the same unit, so customers can get to see their sofas being made.” 

“We design sofas and chairs that are made-to-measure to suit your space. We will customise a piece to fit into a corner, or a bay window, for example,” Paul explains. “Even if your room has weird angles, we’re happy to help. We once made a corner unit that comprised ten different chairs, which all linked together to fit into an unusual space.” The company is a also very happy to duplicate a design in any size and shape. 

Every piece of Sofarooms’ furniture is made from beech hardwood frames, glued, screwed and dowelled for extra strength and longevity. From the frame up, only the highest quality materials are used, and a 25-year guarantee is offered on all frames.

Sofarooms’ personal service means it can make each piece of furniture tailored specifically to you. If you struggle to sit comfortably in furniture because it is too deep, shallow, high or low, then Paul says: “We will be more than happy to help you find a sofa or chair that you not only love the look of but that will be customised to suit you personally.”

To finish your home off, skilled seamstresses make made-to-measure curtains, blinds and throw cushions. The company offers a popular re-upholstery service too - whether traditional or modern, there’s a huge range of fabrics to choose from. 

Visit the Sofarooms’ showroom to discuss your ideas and examples of the products and fabric ranges.
