Want to know more about what we do?

Plumbs is the UK's market leader for reupholstery and sofa covers. This means we take old, tired furniture and reimagine it as something entirely new. Our customers choose to do this for a range of reasons; sentimental value, environmental benefits, or simply not wanting to lose their favourite chair.

We also produce beautiful made-to-measure curtains, blinds, and accessories for every room in the home. All of these are available in a range of over 800 fabrics, so no matter who you’re talking to, there will be the perfect options for them.

How does it work?

We’ll go through this as if you were a customer.

First thing first, you might stumble across one of our Marketing department’s lovingly created ads. We advertise frequently in all major press, guaranteeing a steady stream of business from new and returning customers.

The next step would be speaking to our friendly call centre team, who take customer details and send them on to our home consultants.

Our sales team form a nationwide network of in-home interiors experts, helping to assist customers and secure the orders for our talented craftspeople. They visit the customers at a convenient time, taking fabric books and a wealth of knowledge. Often they return at a later date to fit covers or curtains too.

Traditional craft is at the heart of what we do, and we’re proud to support craftspeople across the country. In addition to our own upholsterers and sofa cover makers, we also work with a range of independent companies in order to extend our network and support the trade.

If there’s any queries throughout the order, our Customer Services team will play their part. Helping to update, inform, and smooth any problems that may arise. They are always on hand to help, no matter the problem.

There’s plenty of other people who play their part along the way! From cutters and sewers to our transport department and finance team – it’s a team effort with a truly satisfying end result.
