Our Reviews

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.

Superb from start to finish

SW James were superb from start to finish. Warren was really great. He helped us choose the right colour for our room with samples and photos, then he had our sofa, chair and stool made in time for delivery just after we moved in. We'll definitely be back for more!

Professionalism, Punctuality...

Absolutely amazing chesterfield!!!!!
When I first contacted S w James, warren invited us to his factory to show us the leathers they use and how they make there sofas.
I was amazed by the quality and old school workmanship you just don’t get any more from the other main stream sofa company’s.
Warren kept me updated on the project regularly and when it was delivered he even sent with it a nice note and a bottle of red wine for us.
We love our chesterfield!.
I would highly recommend S w James if your wanting an amazing well built sofa and great experience with plenty of class.

Thank you to Warren and team.

Very Impressed

My SW James 5 seater No 2 leather Chesterfield arrived today. I am extremely impressed with the quality of leather, comfort and workmanship. There are not many manufactures of furniture that keep you updated with your order and seem to treat their creations with immense pride.
I am so impressed that I’m already considering ordering a second piece.

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 .

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. We are delighted with the Chesterfields and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend SW James to anyone.

Excellent job SW James

Working with Warren has been a true pleasure. He has an old-fashioned mentality to customer service, and has helped throughout the entire process. We talked regularly on the phone and email. Its been a great experience. He helped me choose the correct sofa and even made a custom size to fit in a smaller space.

Thank you very much for everything. The quality of my new SW James is incredible. I would highly recommend this company.

Such a nice team!

Ordered our new suite with SWJames and these guys were great the whole way through. They helped us choose a beautiful red wool that goes perfectly with our living room. Their Chesterfields look amazing in red and the wool was a perfect alternative to leather. Started off with a combination in mind but eventually ended up with a sofa, sofa bed and chair that fit the space so well. You can't even tell its a sofa bed!! Chose casters for the feet which is great for hoovering. Love that they add their little union flag on each piece, beautifully handmade pieces by British Craftsmen. So glad I talked with these guys and got their advice, couldn't be happier.

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.
