                The Sofas & Stuff story -10th Anniversary
The Sofas & Stuff story began back in 2009. Founder Andrew Cussins tells us more...
“I noticed a gap in the market with regards to selling bespoke, handmade, British sofas and beds online and from quirky non high street locations” explains founder, Andrew Cussins. Ten years on and now with 13 showrooms across the country, Sofas & Stuff celebrate their anniversary with the company’s best
ever year.
After spending a lifetime commuting and traveling all over the world, Andrew and his wife Julia wanted to start a business close to their home in the Sussex Downs. “Lunch at home seemed like a nice idea” Andrew adds. As luck had it, a beautiful timbered barn became available in the village of Fittleworth, and the rest
is history.
“In those early days we found we had customers who were driving for hours to come and see us. One day, one particular customer commented that they loved the experience at Sofas & Stuff so much, because the barn ‘didn’t feel like a shop’. In that moment, what was intended to be an online only company morphed in an instant into a mixture of online and beautiful quirky, off-pitch, bricks and mortar.” Andrew explains.
Andrew adds “Those early days seem a long time ago now, but what we learnt then, we still abide by today.”
Sofas & Stuff are ever growing and with over 40,000 happy customers over the years, the brand is always looking at ways to expand.
The latest release to launch with Sofas & Stuff is the introduction of their brand new fabric collection. Sumptuously soft and durable, the new Essential Collection from Sofas & Stuff is
an affordable and wide range of rich and neutral fabrics. With 154 colours to choose from; including clever glossy velvets, stain resistant cotton blends, herringbone and basket weaves, to classic linen mixes and soft wools. As well as three new
sofa designs, engineered to retail at a lower price point, whilst maintaining their obsessive level of product quality.
