Tales from our S.W. James Family
see why customers love s.w. james
We know buying a luxury item such as one of our Chesterfields online can be somewhat daunting if trust isn’t there. As a result, we work incredibly hard to offer an old-fashioned customer service.
We’d like to share a number of reviews we have gathered on our Google and Trust Pilot accounts and also through kind emails we have received from our customers recently.
From the moment you choose an S.W. James, you will be treated as a member of a proud family.

Absolutely delighted with our new sofa
Absolutely delighted with our new sofa, sofabed and chairs! Superb quality in design, manufacture and materials, looks stunning, and soooo comfortable. Could not recommend more highly. British craftsmanship at its best! Thank you for the excellent service and advice.
Thank you Warren and your excellent team of craftsmen
When our sofa maker went bust we searched the internet and found SW James and asked whether they could help us with a Chesterfield sofa bed. The service we received was fantastic...they produced exactly the same sofa for us and even hand delivered it through an upstairs window and it is perfect! We would recommend this company to absolutely everybody we know. Thank you Warren and your excellent team of craftsmen.
Even better than expected
Warren called me as soon as I'd made my order on the site. He was really helpful and informative. I was impressed by his friendly and informed approach, he explained how the order was going to be made for me by hand and how the sofa will be delivered. The delivery team were excellent on the day of delivery and had my sofa in place really quickly. I simply love our new no2 sofa. This is my first Sw James and I'm so happy with it. I recommend this company. I will return again soon.
SW James are fantastic I cannot fault the service
SW James are fantastic I cannot fault the service I received from them. Warren is a Gent and goes that extra mile.
We had oiginally ordered from another company that subsequently went bust. Warren did everything he could to help us from our initial contact and custom made a piece to our specification. He kept in touch every step of the way.
I would never consider another company when buying a chesterfield. Beautiful, handcrafted furniture with faultless service. Thanks for everything

Great service from order to delivery
It is rare in this day and age to receive a quality of product as this ( 3 seater no. 10) with brilliant communication and a delivery team who overcame a tricky obstacle to get this into my home. Absolutely superb from start to finish.

A uniformly excellent experience from first website view to post-delivery email. Superb.
Simply wonderful service and products. The highest of recommendations.
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. I would highly recommend this company and I hope to be ordering more from them in the future.

These guys go above and beyond and I would certainly shop here again without hesitation.

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. We are delighted with the Chesterfields and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend SW James to anyone.
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. He made us feel like we were his only customer - not easy when you're as successful and busy as S W James are! Everything that has happened has done so exactly how and when they said it would, including making one of the sofas slightly smaller to fit the space. The customer service has been outstanding. The delivery team also exceeded expectations, and were polite, informed and handled our gorgeous new chesterfield sofas with care. The sofas themselves, and a matching footstool are unbelievably beautiful and comfortable. I can't stop looking at them!! And sitting on them!!! I looked at a lot of Chesterfields before buying, and these are by far the best I've seen. Thank you to Warren and all of the team.

SWJames superb company
SWJames are a company that are hard to find today in the UK, their chesterfield sofas are a thing of beauty, the quality of their craftsmanship, the leather, the overall appearance of the sofa and the comfort is absolutely outstanding. To cap it off they are manufactured in the UK. Warren kept us up to date with the progress of its manufacture. We have seen chesterfields from various large retailers and this chesterfield blows the socks off them all. Thanks to Warren and the team at SWJames for brilliant chesterfield sofa .
Sofa king quality!
We had been looking for a sofa for some time, a major piece for our new home. But nothing we had looked at, in budget or even exceeding the budget, lept out, inspired or filled us with much confidence.
In all honesty, it always felt a little bit of a risk for us, buying a sofa on line. The fact that we couldn't physically sit on one was initially a concern. But after finding the S W James website and reading about their work ethic, the materials used and general high standards involved, the hunch to go to them struck a cord with us instantly.
We've always been so cautious when it comes to our hard earned cash, but after further procrastination and reading previous glowing reviews, in the end, we bit the bullet. It felt right to proceed with ordering a Number 15, two seater in vintage brown. Essentially having faith in our hunch. And thank goodness we did! The finished piece is so much better in every way than anything else we looked at! We couldn't be happier! It looks better than we imagined and fits our small livingroom perfectly.
As well as the shear asthetics, it is so comfortable to sit on! The colour and texture of the leather is second to none! It has a very contemporary, modern, firm but vintage elegance. A true testament to the guys and the level of knowledge and craftsmanship at S W James.
Well worth following ones instincts! And, on a side note, I'm definitely more of an 'old school' kind of guy, so being able to call, talk, have a conversation and discuss options directly, was, for me, absolutely the right way to go about configuring our sofa. For the money and quality, you'll be getting an absolute top draw, British made product!

...The service was fantastic from beginning to end
"Our experience with SW James has been great and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you. The service was fantastic from beginning to end, and I have to admit, I was nervous about ordering the chesterfields without actually seeing and sitting on them 1st, but they are just as your pictures and descriptions portrayed them."

Oh my goodness-we are over the moon with our chesterfield
Oh my goodness-we are over the moon with our chesterfield. It looks lovely. The colour is fantastic along with the quality. We have been truly impressed from the outset and for the added personal touch. The delivery men were very nice too.
I was going to ask re care of the leather. So, thanks for sending us some leather conditioner.
Thanks again for fantastic chesterfield which I’ll soon be enjoying a nice glass of wine on! "

...I can say that ordering from you has been a pleasure
"The chairs have arrived! They are beautiful and look perfect in our extension - the perfect addition to our home. A lovely surprise also to find your card and wine - thank you so very much. I think I can say that ordering from you has been a pleasure and I will most certainly be speaking very highly of SW James to my friends and family. My eldest daughter sat in one of the chairs this evening and read her book....she’s one satisfied customer!"
