Collins & Hayes

At Collins & Hayes we design and make the finest, most luxurious sofas and chairs in our state-of-the-art workshop in rural Nottinghamshire. All of the sofas and chairs are carefully handcrafted by our skilled tailors, using only the finest of sustainable ingredients. Each Collins & Hayes collection is designed with your home in mind, featuring sublime comfort, understated luxury, and beautiful details.

Every Collins & Hayes piece is handmade to order, especially for you, meaning you have the option to personalise your look, from our range of luxurious fabrics, irresistibly soft comfort interiors, and a range of accessories. We are so confident in the quality of all of our sofas and chairs that every purchase comes with a lifetime promise.




The Collins & Hayes story started in 1870 and it has always been in our DNA to deliver enduring comfort and understated style to all living rooms. Some things never change, and that’s because they don’t need to.

Today, every handcrafted Collins & Hayes piece is distinguished by effortlessly smart yet casual styling; irresistibly soft, deep cushioning; hand stitched details and solid oak feet, meaning you’ll love coming home to it, time and time again.


Think Naturally


All of the Collins & Hayes sofas are upholstered in 75% or more natural fibre fabrics, made without use of any harmful chemicals. Our hardwood frames are made with wood from sustainable sources and come with a lifetime promise ensuring your furniture will last. All of our sofas and chairs are handmade to order to minimise waste.

Our Lifetime Promise commits to repair or replacing any Collins & Hayes frame that fails structurally due to workmanship or materials. This applies to all wooden components in your furniture with the exception of feet, which are covered for 1 year.
