James Charnwood Sofa
We build exceedingly good sofas. We see each piece as a work of art, not just mere furniture. Our master craftsmen painstakingly hand craft each piece using centuries old techniques handed down through generations. We travel the world to acquire the finest leather and fabric.
Every part and material we use has been exhaustively tested for quality and longevity. Hence we are confident enough to extend our 10 year guarantee to 25 years, for all solid wooden frames. (see Terms)
Our skilled craftsmen and women hold themselves to a high standard because they are proud of what they produce. We see each and every piece of furniture we produce as a work of art and we build them to last for decades, not years
Our team have a combined experience of over 30 years building fine sofas for a select clientele who appreciate quality and refinement above all else. Furniture should be more than just something to fill your house with. We strive to break with tradition by refusing to build bland universal furniture aimed at the masses, and we aim to build unique pieces to please your very own personal taste.
Can you think of a time when you had exactly the sofa you wanted without paying extortionate prices? We believe in providing you value for money, therefore every piece is meticulously crafted by experienced craftsmen.
We use only the finest materials available, working closely with a few carefully selected suppliers with a proven track record. This is the only way we can ensure each and every sofa we build passes our high standards.
It usually takes 6 to 8 weeks to build your sofa by hand. This depends on the time of the year, as some periods are far busier than others.
Please note, the lead time is an estimate only and can be affected by the time of the year or unforeseen circumstances. If we are unable to meet the estimated dispatch or delivery date, we will contact you with a revised estimated date. Please also refer to our terms.
We never rush to finish an order, since it will compromise the built quality. Neither do we move your order up the queue for a fee. All orders are strictly done "first come first served". So you can be sure your sofas are being made with the greatest attention to detail.
Good sofas come to those who wait. It certainly takes time to build to perfection, and when it comes to an important piece of furniture such as a sofa, it is time well spent. The sofa is and always will be the most used piece of furniture in your living room. Therefore it is wise to think of it as a long term investment and be prepared to wait for the right one.
Alex is a gem, he was so helpful with us and he was always available for advice. There were some delays, as to be expected with this pandemic, but we were confident with the level of service we received and just waited it out. Our settee is very comfortable. I'm glad we listened to David and didn't go for firm seats. He knows his stuff.
I bought this sofa for my elderly mum and a couple of weeks after the order I realised my mistake. My mum can't get off sofas low to the ground, and I was afraid this may be one of those sofas. Called david in a panic and he was so wonderful. He asked me to measure the height of the current sofa and they will make sure the new one is not any lower to the gorund. It's this sort of personal service which I absolutely adore and appreciate. The sofa arrived and my mum was over the moon. Best thing I ever got her. Thanks David and the team.
