It’s a common question amongst our potential customers, “can we come visit your showroom?” Our standard reply is normally, “No, we don’t have a showroom, but you’re more than welcome to come view our working factory!” Here at Abode Sofas we believe each customer should be able to experience the quality in our traditional production methods.
We don’t have a showroom and we don’t intend on getting one, why? Because showrooms are easy to buy, easy to to hide manufacturing sins, and easy to mislead customers. Most high street so called “sofa manufactures” have big, posh glossy showrooms, and thats fine, but you’re not seeing everything that is going into their products. Once the finishing touches are on and a few distracting scatter cushions are applied, this hides a multitude of manufacturing defects and cut corners.
Big name retailers will entice customers into their stores with deals, sales and low cost prices and fancy showroom set ups, and the odd free coffee, but do you really know what goes into your sofa? That sofa you’re spending you hard earned money on? The sofa you will have for potentially the next several years?
Believe us when we tell you and all other British manufactures of high quality handmade furniture will tell you, showrooms are just an easy way out. We have nothing to hide so we bare all for our customers too see, so you know exactly what you are investing in. Many of our customers have gone on to tell us that they would rather see a working factory rather than viewing a clean, costly showroom.
So the answer to the question is, no, we don’t have a big fancy showroom, but anybody is more than welcome to come view any of our Chesterfield Sofas being made in our factory. Pay us a visit at any time and come view the whole manufacturing process of your new Chesterfield Sofa.
