Our sofas and armchairs.

Bespoke for your bottom.

Let’s talk bespoke sofas. They’re pretty flexible.


To name a few options we can tailor: the shape of the back, style of the feet, detail on the arms, cushion fillings, seat depth, skirt, piping, and, of course, the upholstery fabric…

Don't worry. We've been helping customers to decide since 1987. We'll hold your hand.


Browse the range we offer below — and be brave. Whether your style is traditional or contemporary, your choices make it.

It's all in the detail.

Each piece of handmade furniture from Balmain & Balmain is created to order to your specifications. That means you have a huge array of options available to tailor each piece to your tastes. Here are a few of the options available for you to customise on our bespoke chairs and sofas...

A straight upholstered back, meaning no back cushions. Often this style is seen accessorised with scatter cushions.

An elegant curve to the upholstered back — often regarded as a traditional style, it can adopt a very modern feel in the right fabric. 

The classic cushion back sofa — we offer a choice of fillings, including traditional feather, and the choice of 2 or 3 cushions for our larger sofas.

Back options

Serpentine back

Cushion back

Straight back

A rounded, decorative finish to the arms — curving outwards from the base, they combine a traditional look with comfort.

A flat-fronted finish to the arms with piping to the outer edge, this gives a fuller profile to the front of the furniture.

Removing the piping cord detail gives a deliberately plain finish to the arm and a modern, slick appearance.

Arm options

No Scroll arms

Butt seams (no piping)

Scroll arms

A style that is regaining popularity, a skirted finish includes loose panels that hide the feet on the sofa's base. 

A plain wooden, flattened "bun" foot that echoes a style that is centuries old. Can be used to create a very modern finish. 

A choice of turned/tapered legs (with or without casters). These can be specified in a range of traditional polished finishes.

Feet options

Bun feet

Tapered/Turned legs
