Sofas & Stuff is the brainchild of founder and CEO Andrew Cussins, who began his career in 1980, starting out as an apprentice at his father’s long-standing furniture empire, Waring & Gillow. He went on to found Sofa Workshop, which he sold in 2002, after helping to furnish 750,000 living rooms. Noticing a gap in the market for bespoke, handmade, British sofas and beds, Andrew developed his creative vision with a plan to sell handcrafted pieces online and from quirky, non-high street locations.

The Sofas & Stuff story began in 2009 with just four employees in Fittleworth, West Sussex, where their flagship store and head office are still based today. Since launching in 2009, Sofas & Stuff has become a hallmark of excellence and expertise within the furniture industry. Each individual piece is lovingly handmade in Britain and can be upholstered in any fabric in the world.
