A little about Sofastyle

Here at Sofa Style, we have 30+ years experience making sofas and have been operating here in Newhaven, East Sussex since 2000.

Our goal is to produce the best possible product, in the most sustainable way, delivering it locally to you.

Visit us at our Newhaven showroom to choose your perfect sofa and personalize it with your choice of fabric. You can even take a peek inside the factory to see our sustainability credentials for yourself and meet our skilled team of 8 handcrafting every sofa. 

Made to measure

All our furniture can be tailored to your exact requirements. We work with you to make sure you’re making the perfect choice for your home. Whether your sofa needs to be pet friendly or be slimmer than a standard sofa to fit in your home, we can help you.

A sofa for life.

The average sofa has a life span of 3 to 5 years before its owner updates and replaces it. 90% of these sofas end up in landfill because they’re hard to recycle. This is not only terrible for the environment but for your pocket too.

All of our sofas have a 20-year warranty but are built to last way beyond this.

We see a sofa as a long-term investment that can be repaired and updated rather than replaced. Wine stain down the arm or damaged during a move? We can build you a new arm. Are the cushions becoming worn after years and years of hard use? We can replace these too.


It takes 90 kgs of carbon to manufacture the average sofa. We want to change this.

Starting with the materials, which make up over 80% of its impact on the environment. We use only FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified wood. Plus, we are working to bring you eco-friendly Ultra Flex foam and fabrics made from recycled plastics later this year.

Manufacturing here in Sussex allows us local delivery in our new electric vehicle, negating the use of diesel-powered container ships traveling across oceans to bring you your sofa.

Choosing materials

Choose from our extensive range of fabrics. If you’re unsure we can help you choose the best fabrics for you. Pet-friendly, child-friendly, vegan-friendly, or even supply your own if you already have your perfect fabric.

We then use a 6-meter computerised cutting table for ultimate precision eliminating excess fabric waste, which saves our customers money, us time, and excess scraps from landfill.

Sofa beds

We specialise in sofa beds. Specifically, 2 fold and a Nova style sofa beds.

The 2-fold mechanism houses a thicker mattress, glides in and out with ease, and has sprung slats for the perfect night’s sleep.

The Nova- is a permanent sleeper. Folds easily for everyday use, and comes with a full-length, thicker mattress. This is perfect for studio flats or someone that needs a sofa bed for the long term.
