Perfect in Every Way

We bought the Shipley, standard double, memory flex mattress and Woolsafe cover. The reason is that I want to turn our spare bedroom into my music room. Therefore to have a good looking, comfortable, armless sofa that I can sit (sprawl) on while playing guitar and fiddling with amp and laptop is essential, as is a really comfortable bed. This excels on all counts.
When I was starting to look I gave them a call. Super helpful and steered me away from a more expensive option to the Shipley. I explained we would need it by Easter, less than 2 weeks away so I was on the phone as Mark walked through the stockroom letting me know which fabrics were in stock so they could start making it on Monday. It actually arrived the following Saturday and was a doddle to put together. (Ok, I'm a maker of bedroom furniture, which helps, and I've got some 10mm and 13mm spanners which more than helps, but anybody can do this).
Conclusions: It's super comfortable as a bed (we bought a Dunelm £30 mattress topper so the sofa wouldn't get stained if any grandkids might have an accident) - we spent 2 nights on it as we are overhauling our bedroom, it's really nice to sit on for a few hours playing guitar, it looks a really stylish piece of furniture in the room and I feel good supporting such a great small business. Oh, and I got a lot of "house points" for getting it!



Great product brilliant service

Ordered the sofa bed and expected a couple of weeks for delivery. Had a call a couple of days after order saying they could bring it at the weekend, so that was one week. Delivered to bedroom and assembled. Very nice person on the phone and nice young man delivered it. It is really nice looking and actually better than the photo. Very easy to turn into bed and back to sofa. So pleased with product and service.

So easy to use. Great service. Thrilled with purchase.
Love that it is a northern based company too!

Thank you

Shipley compact

I bought this sofa bed for my narrowboat. Fast delivery and installation by the friendly delivery team. This is a well designed sofa bed which converts in seconds. I opted for the memory foam topper, and it's more comfortable to sleep on than my bed at home. It's so good I'm buying another one!



we ordered the shipley and it was delivered within two weeks from first contact!we're slightly pushed for space so having the size options was great;the quality of build was excellent, and NO self assembly! its very comfortable as a sofa alone and looks g
