Curl up by the fire and choose your hand-crafted furniture
With over 20 years' experience in the trade, Devonshire Sofas knows a thing or two about hand-making the perfect sofa or chair.
Not only is every item of furniture put together individually by a small team of expert craftsmen, you can have your sofa designed precisely the way you want it.
Select your very own size, cushion density, and type of fabric to exactly match your personality as well as the interior of your home.
Based on the outskirts of the pretty coastal town of Budleigh Salterton, Devonshire Sofas' furniture is housed in an impressive showroom. Said general manager, Terry Coates, "Originally, the building was an apple store and cider press. We've clad this out with timber inside which gives it the look and feel of a barn."
Customers can choose between two log burners to relax beside whilst testing the comfort of the furniture. There's no shortage of seating to curl up on while taking time to browse the many design and fabric samples. The surroundings are warm, welcoming and comfortable. Just like home, really.
A family run business, Devonshire Sofas was set up by husband and wife Mike and Lydia Henson, who still work there today. They also run a sister business, Oak Barn Furnishings, in another barn location nearby, selling a discerning variety of quality oak furniture and home accessories to decorate your home.
"We're just a field apart from Oak Barn," continued Terry. "It's a lovely spot, surrounded by trees and fields. We can see the sea out of one side of the building and Woodbury common out of the other."
Chair of the dog
As they're custom made, Devonshire Sofas will often be asked to make something a little different than standard, which is popular with those who are shorter or taller than average. They have even made a smaller version of a sofa especially for a customer's dog.
Whatever you choose, their aim is to make you as comfortable as possible in your perfect "forever sofa".
