Handmade to order

Here at James and Rose we don't mass produce, all our sofas are tailored to your requirments and specifications. Our bespoke sofas are available in hundreds of styles, leathers and fabrics.


We hand build the frames from carefully selected beech timber. Beech is a very durable wood and is ideal for both shaped and straight frame sections due to it’s malleable qualities, Beech is also able to stand constant weight and high impact force. A well made beech frame is able to be recovered many times.

The fully sprung seat back and arms combined with the best quality high resilient upholstery foam offers fantastic comfort. A combination of traditional skills and the best available upholstery components combine to create a stunning piece of workmanship which will last a lifetime.
