S.W. James Picks

Welcome to S.W. James

At S.W. James, infusing comfort into our furniture is our most important goal. We’re proud to offer a brand-new take on the Chesterfield design – creating the most sumptuous, inviting Chesterfields you’ll find. Each S.W. James comes with our signature three-layer comfort blend of soft, squidgy foam cushioning as standard – in addition to plenty of state-of-the-art, no-sag springs that promise premium relaxation. Over the years, we’ve taken the time to perfect our exclusive filling to create a plush, ample seat – carefully blended to last a lifetime.

It’s our great pride to tell you every S.W. James Chesterfield we create is designed and built by hand in our Manchester, UK-based production studio – hence our handmade British trademark. Each piece of S.W. James furniture is manufactured with a 100% heavy-duty frame – built to seat your family through generations. In fact, we’re so confident in the quality of our furniture, we offer a 25-year frame guarantee.

Much like our commitment to good old-fashioned furniture making, we work hard to deliver an old school customer service experience to match. It’s for this reason that we have only 5* reviews on Trustpilot.

If you have any questions about our furniture or how it’s made, we would love to talk you through them. At S.W. James, the phone will always be answered by one of our owners, Warren or Jamie, so if you can’t get hold of us straightaway, we’re either on the factory floor or helping another customer; please be patient, we’ll always call you back. If you would like to come and pay us a visit at our shop in Clarence Mill, in Bollington, we would love to welcome you with a fresh, steaming cup of coffee – just give us a call, and we can make an appointment. We look forward to speaking soon.

Why order Swatches

Touch and Feel

To truly understand how inviting our leathers and fabrics are, let your senses explore the textures for themselves.


To get an accurate sense of our colour range, you need to experience them first hand. (We have been as precise as we can to represent accurate colour on our website, but it's always best to see colours for yourself.)

Wear, Tear & Characteristics

Touch them, scratch them, spill on them. Try out the resilience of our fabrics and leathers for yourself to judge if they right for you.
