When buying a new sofa, British-made furniture is a good choice. Not only will your purchase keep money within the UK economy, but you'll also have peace of mind that your new sofa has been made to UK manufacturing standards, which have specific labour, safety and quality requirements. And if that isn't enough to convince you, your British-made sofa will also have a lower environmental impact as there's no need for carbon-emitting overseas transport.

We sell a wide selection of British-made sofas and chairs. From traditional to contemporary design, you're sure to find your style from a UK sofa manufacturer. Here are some of the British sofa brands available to buy at Potburys.
