Home is our safe place. It is where we snuggle up on those cold nights, it is where we laugh with friends, it is where we spend time with our family. So let us make our homes special, by adding colour, textiles and beautiful pieces. Each home is unique and represents the personality of the person or the people living in it.

At the Vintage Sofa Co, we proudly sell British made furniture, and the sofa’s, armchairs, cabinets, and accessories that we sell are chosen by us with one strict guiding principle, would we have it in our own home? For example the Oskar, looks better at 50 years old than the day it was made, it has a coil sprung base and coil sprung back, it has a beech frame that is made by hand and each piece is completely unique.

Jowler Mill is a historic building, and it has a story to tell. Every day, we live, eat and work at the Mill we learn something new about this wonderful place. Having a story to tell is a common theme throughout the furniture that we sell. The Harris Tweed used on several our signature pieces including the Chessington, which our very own Kate helped design, has its own unique story. It all starts with a flat cap. Kate’s Dad’s Harris Tweed flat cap to be precise, it was well looked after and looked as good at 30 years old as it did when it was first bought. Harris Tweed is made by hand and ages beautifully, like leather does, and is the perfect fabric to complement our range of chesterfield styled sofas.

As a married couple, Kate and Peter’s greatest privilege is that they get to work with their children and hopefully one day their grandchildren. Family is extremely important to us and when we are not working, we enjoy nothing more than snuggling up on a sofa and spending time together. For a lazy Sunday afternoon, we will choose to sit on the Howard. It is high-backed, sumptuous, and just plain comfy. It is an incredibly versatile sofa that would look perfect in a stately home, cottage or as a feature piece in a modern home. Available as two-seater all the way through to a large corner sofa the Howard really is a piece for all occasions.

There is real integrity in everything that we do and every product that we select, we want our customers to feel the passion, the love, the care and the attention to detail and to feel like we have picked it for them. It is very important to us that when people visit us at the Mill or buy online from our website that they can choose from a range of beautiful, well made, quality pieces of furniture that are good value money and will be right for their family.

We are the Vintage Sofa Co, and our story is just beginning. Come and join us and let our team help you to tell yours.
