The Kings Speech
Hi, my Name Is Mark and I am The Sofa King - yes a real King.
(Details of the new showroom below)
The company I set up 18 years ago from a small shop in Northampton has now grown into the UK's number one independent Sofa specialist. For the first few years we sold ex-catalogue sofas but soon realised the quality of mass produced catalogue furniture had started going downhill, as Argos and other catalogue companies were just interested in selling quantity and not quality. So I decided to change the companies direction, I wanted the Sofa King to be known for quality luxury sofas at prices that were as low as possible. I spent over a year testing sofas from different manufacturers including British factories and Italian leather firms. My aim was to create an online sofa store, combined with a centrally located showroom offering unbeatable prices and the sort of service, quality and choice you used to get from the traditional high street furniture stores that used to be around years ago and the owners always knew everyone’s name, before the rip off corporate companies like DFS and SCS took over the retail parks and the quality sofa shops disappeared. After 18 years of hard work my dream is now a reality and in 2011 the web site was re-launched. Myself, my lovely wife, beautiful daughter and my trusted staff are so proud of the sofas we sell and the prices we can sell them at. Please don’t get our sofas confused with some of the rubbish being sold on Ebay, dodgy web sites, Gumtree and cheap nasty shops. Here at The Sofa King the prices may be low but the quality of the sofas is outstanding and all our new sofas come with a manufacturers guarantee for total peace of mind. We now have a British sofa factory making custom made fabric sofas in just 14 days in the colours and fabrics you choose AND we have over 1000 leather sofas, reclining sofas and corner suites in stock in our Birmingham and Northampton warehouses ready for fast national delivery (See 'delivery' for areas we deliver too). It's now recommendations that keep us the UK’s number one independent British sofa store, not just our cheeky rather famous slogan ‘Sofa King Low Prices’ If you can't make it to the showroom, and to help those of you skeptical about buying a new sofa from a web site, without actually trying it first, we introduced ‘if you don’t like it on delivery’ then just return it for a full refund policy*, thus helping our customers buy with total confidence, so now 90% of our sofa sales come from this website. Our great feedback and 5* reviews speak for themselves. Remember you are dealing with real people here at The Sofa King, we are proud and passionate of the products we sell. The large corporate stores like DFS and SCS really do hate us, are we bothered? Of course not, it means we are doing something right. In fact it was after I visited a few of the large corporate stores which made me set up The Sofa King in the first place. The pushy staff, the rip off ‘add on's’, the so called ‘sale’ they seem to have every day that’s just a ploy to get you into the store, so the commission earning staff can push you into paying more for better seating or formal backs (we don’t ever charge more for upgrades, they are all included!) Then of course the ridiculous high prices that they think are justified because you can pay them off over years and years, using their so called ‘interest free’ finance. If charging a stupidly high price to cover the finance is interest free then I’m a baby goat! My advice - if you can get finance in a sofa store like DFS you can usually get a good credit card online in minutes, pay the minimum off each month and it works out much cheaper that paying too much for a sofa! Then there are the delivery charges which is another way they rip you off, we charge just £19.99 and that’s a true 5* service, two men that will deliver and set your new sofas up so they are ready to use or if you don’t want to spend that, then its always free for our customers to collect. If you have any questions at all please just call us on 01604 760105 and a member of staff will be happy to help.
Hot off the press! We are moving from our present showroom at the end of February to a beautiful new showroom. Our present showroom has done us proud for years but it's time to upgrade, so we can really show the luxury sofas off in a building that compliments the quality and beautiful sofa designs (don’t worry we are keeping the prices the same). The new showroom location has been announced and is currently being decorated, for info visit our facebook page for a chance of winning a £500 voucher. The present showroom is only being used to clear the ex-display sofas and a few stock sofas during February - so if you want to try before you buy wait until the 1st week of March when the new showroom opens
OR just click and buy now as it's business as usual plus we have reduced many of the prices and with fast delivery now is a great time to buy your sofa from the UK's number ONE sofa specialist.Thanks for reading, stay safe, smile and be happy.THE KING x
PS See I've got a crown on ;)
