Plumbs launches customisable sofa range

Preston-based fabrics and reupholstery firm Plumbs has launched an online sofa sales division, Fable & Plumb.

The range features solid wood sofas and chairs, hand-made in the UK, that can be styled individually through a fully interactive website offering more than 400 removeable, washable fabric options, three seat filling options and five leg colour options.

As the covers are removable, they can be replaced in the future to refresh the look without the need to buy an entirely new sofa.

The company has a 60-year pedigree of sofa cover and reupholstery products sold through home visits by interior consultants, but has been making moves into the online realm in recent years.

Sarah Page, Plumbs managing director, said: "The aim of Fable & Plumb is to provide sofas that are built to last a lifetime in every possible sense.

“The ability to replace fabrics on the same frame is not only a great lifestyle choice but also reflects the global movement away from high-waste consumerism and an emphasis on environmentally-conscious purchasing decisions in products that have a long lifetime of use."
