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.

Simply Wonderful Service And Products.
The company has consistently delivered high quality customer support through frequent communication informing me of the delivery and care of the products. They have also maintained a human feel through treating me as a Person and not another number. The quality of the furniture is wonderfully high and every visitor has commented on their finish and comfort....
My Experience Of SW James Was Wonderful
My experience of SW James was wonderful from beginning to end. Their customer service, obvious love of their products and dedication to their business was very apparent and made choosing and purchasing my sofas and the bespoke window seat cushion they designed and produced for me a joy...
I Can't Recommend S W James Highly Enough
I can't recommend S W James highly enough. We've been absolutely delighted with the service from start to finish - professional, transparent and attentive. Warren was so helpful, and either on the end of the phone to answer questions, or would call back very quickly if we couldn't get hold of him straightaway...

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.
