Sofas With Soul

The Most Comfortable Handmade Sofas

The S.W. James Story

Why our Sofas have Soul

The beginnings of the S.W. James story can be traced all the way back to school days. Started by three former classmates and lifelong friends, we’re a family-run business that’s passionate about making handmade British Chesterfields the old-fashioned way.

There’s a reason we coined the phrase ‘Sofas with Soul’ – each piece of furniture that leaves our Manchester-based factory is handmade by our small team, using the finest materials and time-honoured techniques. Our only difference? We’re The Home of The Most Comfortable Chesterfield – having successfully fused traditional style with modern comfort to create a sumptuously snug Chesterfield sofa that will seat your family through generations.

If you’d like to come experience our unrivalled comfort for yourself, we’d love for you to pay us a visit at our shop in Clarence Mill, Bollington. You’ll always be welcomed with a smile, and a fresh, steaming cup of coffee – or tea, you’re in charge! Just give us a call, and we’ll make an appointment.
