For the love of a damn fine chair!


Lounging Around produce our own sofas and chairs, made to the highest standards in the UK and tailored to your own specification, finished in either our beautiful textile ranges or in our unique vintaged hand dyed leather hides. Alongside offering our newly built bespoke sofas, we also restore and re-upholster vintage, contemporary and classic high end sofas and armchairs. A wealth of combined experience in the worlds of architecture, interiors, advertising and graphics mean we love to work with and produce good design made to last, so whether old or new, we make our sofas the best they can be. We believe the quality of your environment inside and out can be enriched by functional, responsive, sensuous design, built to last generations and withstand everyday usage.
On our journey towards Lounging Around, we've loved sourcing other pieces of furniture, lifestyle objects, vintage, antique and contemporary, which you will soon be able to browse and purchase via our LA Vintage section.

We occasionally work with pieces from the past which are no longer produced. If not in fine condition, we restore and re-upholster bringing these pieces up to date in a luxuriously fitting modern manner. These pieces have wonderful individual character and quality simply unavailable from new, which combined bring a modern edge or heirloom factor to your living environment.

Hand Dyed Leather
Sticky fingers and other tales of the dark arts


We love to get our fingers into a good hand dyeing job. A newly reupholstered neutral leather chair or sofa is our dream project. We approach each piece as a sculptural form, working in the dye so to emphasize the curvature of the piece, creating our truly unique hand dyed vintaged appearance, one which our growing clientele look for.

When so much furniture is throw away today, emphasising a world of fast production methods, we bring an alternative to the market. We work extensively side by side with the finest experienced craftsmen to create or re-create timeless pieces.

Lounging Around the Brand
Handbuilt furniture to order


From years of experience working with the finest sofas and chairs, it was a natural progression to fulfil a life long dream and produce our first sofa from the bones up. Our Woodsmoor is our the first bespoke hand dyed leather sofa, designed in the classic Howard style, with a solid oak dowelled frame and eight way hand tied fully coil sprung seating and back. Each piece is designed to be as beautiful on the inside as on the outside, with comfort inherent in the design.
