We ordered a bespoke sofa bed from Sofa Rooms. It is a beautiful sofa in gorgeous fabric and is so comfortable! We receive lots of compliments about it. Unlike many sofa beds, it has a good mattress and is really comfortable to sleep on. Highly recommended.

I have visited the showroom at Bakers yard for a number of years and eventually ordered a bespoke sofa. I am delighted with it. It is beautifully made in the fabric that I chose and the back cushions have been fitted to my height requirements. There is no 'one size fits all', it is truly a bespoke service at a reasonable price with friendly, approachable and helpful staff.

We had a bespoke headboard and scatter cushions. They were made just how we wanted, really pleased. They were really helpful and friendly. Would not hesitate to order from them
