To sit in our chairs is to experience a level of comfort that is hard to describe – the best way for you to understand just how good it feels is to sit in it yourself. We don't have traditional showrooms so we have come up with a different way for you to experience our chairs…. our lovely mobile showroom. We will come to your home, at a time that suits you, bringing not only our wonderful chair but samples of all our fabrics so you can really get a feel for the pieces you’re interested in.
Our lovely Maker&Son expert will give you as much time as you need and will be able to answer any questions you might have about the furniture – they will also be able to help you with colour choices, how to decide which fabric is right for you and can even assist with the layout of your room. If you’d like to book your home visit, simply click on the ‘Book a visit’ button or give us a call.Book a visit

We can make our furniture to any size. The Song Sofa and Armchair have been carefully designed to be the comfiest in the world – we recommend keeping the height and depth as they are but we can work to any width. Our standard Song Sofa is 210cm wide, our armchair is 110cm – if you want to go longer or shorter, just ask.
Costs are calculated according to size – special orders do come at a small premium but it’s probably not as much as you think. Our lead time for standard sized furniture is 4-6 weeks – for bespoke sizes it will be between 6-8 weeks.
We have created L-shaped sofas, super-size sofas; we’ve taken the arms off the sofa for a chaise style and we can do modular units so you can configure your furniture any way you choose.
We can use any fabric you like, as long as it’s suitable for upholstery; you’ll just need to send us a sample so we can check it out.
If you have a specific size in mind just send us the dimensions for a quick quote. If you’re not sure what will work best in your home, then our floor planning service can help.
It can be tricky to work out the best configuration for your furniture –maximising smaller spaces, working with odd shaped rooms, or simply working out how to accommodate the needs of the whole family in one living room can be challenging.
We can help with our floor planning service. Simply send us floor plans if you have them, or a few photos of the room with the length and width of the space and we can create some alternate plans with different furniture configurations and relevant prices.
