Punchbag Collection +£0

This is our Punchbag leather collection. We understand that open grain aniline hides are not suitable for all, so we’ve scoured tanneries far and wide to bring you a leather that’s suitably family friendly while still holding as much of a soft waxy feel as possible. Using a special tanning process the punchbag range is able to provide all the attributes of a semi-aniline leather but with the durability of a pigmented hide. The end result is a best-of-both leather, perfect for family life.

Scuffed Saddle +£0
Silken Collection +£0

A beautifully soft, distressed leather available in a range of contemporary shades. A full grain aniline leather utilising the more 'characterful' hides results in a finish packed full of natural scars, marks and knicks. The hand-finished distressing process results in an almost silk-like hand feel strokably soft and warm.

Tumbled Collection +£0

This collection is something special. These leathers are a full grain aniline hide with plenty of natural character. An extra ‘tumbling’ process right at the end of manufacture helps give these leathers a super soft feel like not other, resulting in a warm, supple feel.

  • When you buy an “Authentic” piece of furniture we guarantee that it has been handmade with love and attention.

    To back this up we give proper, honest guarantee’s (without the need for a fistful of get out clauses!). So we put our money where our mouth is by guaranteeing our furniture for 25 years where we promise to repair or replace if there’s a problem with the craftsmanship. The same applies with our diners and footstools which have a 10 year guarantee.

    For full details please see our terms and conditions.

  • All our sofas are handmade to order, therefore we are currently quoting 8-10 weeks to make and deliver your order. Please bear in mind that this is only an estimated timeframe and is not guaranteed. If you have any time-specific requirement, please call our Sales team on 01629 704 704 or email

    From payment of your deposit and confirmation of your order your lead time will begin. As soon as your items nearing completion our despatch team will be in contact to inform you when your items are due to be completed, ask for any outstanding balances to be collected and that delivery is being arranged. We do most of our deliveries Monday to Friday between 9am and 4pm but for a small surcharge evening and weekend deliveries can be organised if necessary. Please let us know when you order so that we can arrange this for you.

    We work in partnership with several trusted and experienced third party logistics teams, all of which provide a two man delivery service, which includes situating you furniture in the desired room and taking away any packaging for recycling. Your delivery team will contact you either the evening before or on the morning of the delivery to give you an 2-3 hour delivery window. If requested, they can also give you an call when they are close by to give you an update on their progress.

    Following placing an order, we may also need to send you a simple delivery questionnaire to help ensure that any large pieces of furniture can be easily delivered into your home. We’d hate to arrive and not be able to fit you’re lovely new furniture in!

    Please note all deliveries require a signature from an adult on delivery, please check over you furniture and make sure you are happy with everything before signing. If you have any questions up on receiving your order, please don’t hesitate to call our service team on 01629 704 704 or email

  • Our upholstery workshop is located in Long Eaton, Derbyshire which is regarded as the home of British upholstery due to the history and time-served craftsmen that work at numerous workshops within the area.

    Our team are passionate about doing it right or not at all; they follow the traditional methods of upholstery which to this day remain not only the best but also the right way to do things. This passion and love for their trade are what make them such a perfect fit to our Authentic philosophy.

  • We understand its a big decision ordering a sofa or dining table online, especially when you are unable to visit us beforehand. That’s why we try and pack our site with as much information about our furniture as possible. In addition to that, we wanted to give our customers complete peace of mind when ordering. That is why we built our 21 days FREE returns policy.

    Simple and straightforward; if for any reason you’re not 100% delighted with your Authentic furniture when it arrives, just let us know and we can either take it away then and there, or we can come back and collect it, free of charge.

    As long as you let us know within 21 days from the date of delivery, we will refund you in full, including any initial delivery cost. All we ask is that the item(s) being returned are unused, undamaged and in the same condition as they arrived in. For more information please see our terms & conditions. Alternatively, call us on 01629 704 704 or email

  • Heritage

    Each and every sofa we make is built without compromise in Long Eaton, Derbyshire which is widely regarded as the home of British upholstery and we very much agree.


    All our upholsterers have served an apprenticeship to learn the skills needed to make sofas of the very highest standards, each sofa is individually buttoned and hand-tied and then signed off by our two most experienced craftsmen each with over 40 years experience.

    We embrace the traditional Chesterfield design and add our own twists ensuring the original classic style is enhanced and remains timeless.

    There is no production line in our workshops, each sofa is handmade by one craftsman from start to finish.

    All the materials we use to construct our Chesterfield sofas are the very best available – we don’t cut any corners on quality.


    We pride ourselves on how they “sit”, not everyone wants a low back so we offer high-back options such as the Florence and Mr Wallis – why not come and see us and try them out for yourself?!
