Your Team

Generations of expertise

We know that for many a sofa sits at the heart of the home so we thought it might be nice to introduce you to some of the faces at the heart of your next new sofa.

When we set up zofa we did it because we wanted to take the hassle out of buying a sofa but without compromising on things like style, service, delivery times and all the bits that we know are really important. It’s safe to say that we have no desire in becoming a mega-corp. that’s only really interested in churning out run-of-the-mill sofas. At the heart of everything we do sits the desire to deliver a quality experience from start to finish. For us it’s all about delivering exceptional value in an exceptional way.

Meet John

John has kept the family tradition of working in the furniture industry very much alive. His father, Steve, was involved in the industry for over 50 years and it’s safe to say you’ve probably sat on something that’s made its way through one of his facilities at one time or another.

John’s worked in the furniture game himself for well over 10 years. He’s always been really keen to understand how the whole process worked from start to finish. His journey in the world of sofas spans sales, account and production management and he’s been tasked with running sofa factories that have produced for worldwide furniture brands and major UK retailers.

Why zofa? Well, with a decade of experience under his belt John was keen to expand upon the lessons he’d learned but, in an environment, where he could really build on the family tradition of producing great quality, long lasting sofas. After working within design and creative as well as production and operational teams he’s been able to get a real handle on what it takes to make a good product great. It’s this that forms the driving force behind all things zofa.

Meet Simon

Simon is an award-winning Furniture Designer with a career spanning over 20 years in the upholstery industry. From day one he’s made it his mission to continually hone his skills within textile and furniture engineering.  

During his working life Simon’s been able to gain invaluable exposure to a huge variety of upholstery techniques and styles and it’s an area he continues to be a little bit obsessed with (and by a little we mean a lot!). For the past 17 years Simon has been fortunate enough to have lead some exceptionally talented creative teams and most recently he’s spent just shy of a decade working as the Development Director for one of UK’s leading upholstery manufacturers. A double whammy of creativity complementing resourceful pragmatism. 

So what brought Simon to zofa? It’s simple really, he wanted to be the driving force behind a creative team that is truly passionate about design and innovation. However, most important to Simon is to remain committed to never losing sight of the need to deliver quality, sustainable solutions in every product the team painstakingly craft. 

When not in the design studio or fettling in the workshop you’ll find Simon eagerly darting around various exhibitions in a quest to identify design trends and source the latest and most innovative components.

We want you to love the look and feel of your new zofa from the moment you set eyes on it (and sit on it of course). We’ll happily send you a box of fabric samples and who knows, we might throw a little something extra in with it too.
