Bespoke furniture brand to open showroom in prominent Knutsford town centre unit

A bespoke furniture brand selling handmade furniture, made in Britain, is set to open in a prominent unit in Knutsford town centre next month.

Sofas & Stuff is set to launch a new showroom in Canute Place on August 15.

The business has signed an 11-year lease on the building, formerly home to Topps Tiles, through leading property consultancy Fisher German, acting on behalf of Monckton Properties Ltd, part of the Tatton Estate.

The store will display a large collection of handmade sofa and chair designs, and staff will also be on hand to provide expertise and offer free design consultations.

Each piece is handmade to order in Britain using traditional craftsmanship to create both modern and classic designs.

Designs can be tailored to any requirement and upholstered in any fabric in the world, and each piece comes with a 15 year guarantee.

The store will be open Monday to Friday from 10am to 5.30pm, Saturdays from 10am to 5.30pm and Sundays and Bank Holidays from 11am to 5pm.

Andrew Cussins, Founder of Sofas & Stuff, said: “Renowned for its array of premium retail brands, the opening of our new showroom in Knutsford was an obvious new destination to open our 14th showroom.

“We’re excited to be able to extend our high levels of service and expertise to Knutsford within a beautiful new showroom space displaying our 70-year family heritage for handmade sofas, all made in Britain.

“As a company, we pride ourselves on providing customers with custom furniture handmade in Britain and being able to cover a chosen piece of furniture in any fabric in the world.

“We look forward to welcoming the Knutsford community with a new shopping experience, providing a comfortable and stylish environment in which stunning pieces are to be on display with our highly knowledgeable design team on hand.”

Henry Brooks, a director of Monckton Properties, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Sofas & Stuff to Knutsford.

“The business has more than 70 years of family heritage in the furniture industry, something we welcome as a family-owned business with a legacy of more than 60 years.

“We have deep roots in the community and are keen to see the area thrive, and it is excellent to see that even during uncertain times, new businesses are attracted to our exceptional market town.

“We wish Sofas & Stuff every success for the future and are sure that the store will have a positive effect on the local economy.”

Rupert Collis, of Fisher German, added: “Sofas & Stuff has signed an 11-year lease which is a fantastic commitment to the town, and it is hugely positive to see a business expanding in what is an incredibly challenging retail market.

“Canute Place is in a prominent position in the town centre and the unit has been empty for some time, so the store will be a very welcome addition to Knutsford and will add to its already great variety of businesses.”
