Beskpoke Custom Made Furniture


Here at South West Upholstery, we love saving furniture from the landfill. However, we also recognise that sometimes this either isn’t possible, or a change in size or design is called for.

Introducing: our Bobbie Burns bespoke furniture collection. The premises we are in on North Street was known as Bobbie Burns, opened by the original Bobbie Burns in 1929 as a furnishings shop. It was bought by the Harris family in the 1960s, and finally by us in 2013. We love the history and legacy that is attached to the Bobbie Burns name, so we have labelled our bespoke furniture range for domestic and contract customers the Bobbie Burns collection.

A few things you might like to know about our bespoke furniture:

  • Our frames are all handmade to order in the South West of England
  • We only use FSC approved wood
  • The same upholsterer works on your piece from start to finish, taking great pride and satisfaction in it
  • You can customise your furniture however you’d like, whether you want a different size, shape, fabric, or fillings
  • You can order online through the website, discuss your requirements over the phone, or visit our dedicated showroom in Bristol.
  • We can deliver your furniture anywhere in the UK

Here are just a few examples of bespoke furniture we have made for household customers and contract customers alike. You can choose from one of our sample designs, or create your own.

This service is available for both contract and domestic customers; here are just a few examples, and the range is ever growing!

Bespoke furniture for Lounge café bars and Cosy Clubs

Working with our client, Loungers, we create bespoke furniture for their branches, customisable by design and fabric choice. It is great to be a part of creating a family-friendly atmosphere in the popular Lounges and a more sophisticated feel for their Cosy Clubs.

Customised Blaise Two Seat Sofa in Velvet

Jackie chose our ‘Blaise’ sofa for its minimalistic design and opted for a bright yellow velvet to complement her art-based interior, with multi-coloured buttons to pull the room together.

Cadbury Winged Armchair in Leather

Mr & Mrs Weakley loved the design of our Cadbury armchair, combined with the practicality of leather and a bespoke lumbar cushion in the base of the chair.

Smyth Chair Built to Order

Mrs Davis fell in love with our Smyth chair the moment she saw it. As her home has amazing views of the fields from the window, it suited their home perfectly and ordered some bespoke scatter cushions in the same fabric after receiving their chair.

Bespoke Living Room Furniture to Customer’s Design

Lyn was undertaking a complete transformation of her home and had very specific ideas about what she wanted her furniture to look like, and what purpose it should serve. Working with her, we created two lounge chairs including a matching footstool for one, a large lounge sofa, a hallway sofa, a buttoned window seat and more. Don’t they look fabulous?
