Take a seat with Couch & Co

John Wilson, Director at Couch & Co, talks about how their first year has been so far while sharing an insight ahead of the upcoming Long Point show.

Officially launched in January this year at its showroom in West End Mills, Long Eaton, Couch & Co has been busy implementing its vision and products into the market. Getting to know the brand, John explained a bit more about the upholstered furniture manufacturer. “We chose Long Eaton for its heritage of quality furniture and the architecture of the buildings, that not only provide a fabulous backdrop for our sofas, but also suit the style and mood we wanted to create.

“We are small, but passionate, close-knit bunch, that have over 150 years’ experience in the UK furniture industry, and we have pooled our knowledge and experience together, as well as our established networks across the industry, to produce our exciting new ranges of furniture, which are created with style and comfort at their core.”

Couch & Co’s dedicated team is made up of partners John Wilson and John Collinson, with Dee Birch taking care of all things sales and service related, while Kristina Storrar has been appointed in the role of Product Merchandiser, where she looks after customers through direct store visits and retail training support.

“Our whole team, throughout our careers are united and dedicated in our vision to supply high quality, commercial furniture for our retail partners, with focus on the detail throughout the whole process,” John revealed. “We work with the most talented designers, fabric mills, tanneries, production and distribution teams, in conjunction with our global connections, to find the right manufacturing partners for the different designs and comfort levels that the style-conscious consumer looks for in their furniture for home.”

Following the successful launch, it soon became apparent that more space was required to show its ranges to their best advantage, and they were “lucky enough” to be able to acquire further space for a second showroom next door to its existing space. In April of this year, the business implemented an extensive refurbishment programme with the aim to swing open the doors in line for Spring’s Long Point event.

“Our showroom refurb project was completed in time for our first Spring Long Point exhibition, where we premiered our fabulous new Scandinavian collection, which was incredibly well received, right across the board,” John said. “This range offers some of the most comfortable, multi-function recliner chairs and sofas, produced using unique space age technology with high density cold-cure moulded foam cushioning and with added heat and massage available, there’s something to suit everyone’s comfort requirements.

“In addition, our zero gravity ergonomically designed recliner chairs provide the ultimate in physical wellness with their ideal weight distribution which reduces stress on different parts of the body, improving blood circulation, reduced joint inflammation, back pain and spinal cord compression.

“Our static furniture collection goes from strength to strength, and we will be showcasing some stunning new designs at this Autumn’s show, integrated within both of our different showrooms. Our collections are available in a range of beautiful boucle’s, super soft chenille’s and some of the finest top grain leathers from around the world, coupled with our stunning range of accent cushions.”

John added that whilst the team is excited to be launching new models at this Autumn’s Long Point, the business has another announcement too. John revealed: “We’re thrilled to announce we will be launching our website at the show, which will see computer generated 3D imagery of each of our models in their best-selling leathers and fabrics, all in the most stunning room settings.

“If you are unable to attend the Long Point exhibition from the 18th to the 20th of September, our showrooms are open by appointment all year round and for your very own personal viewing experience simply email me at john@couchandco.uk or Kristina at kristina@couchandco.uk.”
