Our Story


Luxury Handmade Sofas was founded in 1988 by Lesley Leighfield, a trained furniture maker and upholsterer.

After years of making luxury furniture for other people, Lesley decided to start his own independent sofa and furniture retailer.

The first boutique store opened in Swindon in 1988.  By 1992 a reputation for high quality furniture making and a dedication to service resulted in an expansion.

In 1993 the Swindon store was moved to the Cotham area of Bristol.  This was to cater to a growing market of discerning clients.  In 1995 the London store opened.

Luxury Sofas Online


After making and retailing luxury sofas and chairs for over 50 years Lesley decided to retire.

At this point the Business was handed to the grandchildren to continue the legacy.

In 2014 / 2015, the decision was made to focus on retailing online.  Hence, at this point the London and Bristol stores were gradually closed to focus on ecommerce.

In 2015 a rebrand occured, and Luxury Handmade Sofas as it is today was born.
