511 October 2016

Classic Range - I'm very happy with my furniture. It's so well made.

407 October 2016

Classic Range - Whilst the material and manufacture seem to be of good quality we cannot rate the covers five stars as we will not fit them for several weeks.

530 September 2016

Classic Range - Really comfortable, exactly what we had hoped. Plenty of choice and as we have a dog we decided to have spare covers made.

529 September 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

527 September 2016

Classic Range - Had my previous Multyork furnishing fo 28 years and only got rid of it because the guy that bought my house wanted it so had to replace it.

425 September 2016

Classic Range - See earlier comments. Not enough technical expertise to provide a photograph

522 September 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

520 September 2016

Classic Range - Excellent quality, solidly built and with good design options.

519 September 2016

Classic Range - Excellent product. The settee is well made and comfortable. Removable covers and well filled cushions. Was recommended to go for arm rests which I have done as this will help prolong the life of my settee. Delighted.

419 September 2016

Classic Range - Good

515 September 2016

Classic Range - Our suite looks fresh and modern, with its new, washable replacement covers, which are light stone colour in a textured linen look fabric.

515 September 2016

Classic Range - I love my two new sofa which are stylish and very comfortable. Also, the range of fabrics for the covers was extensive and there were many that I could have happily selected. You can see one here, and note the footstool which was an earlier purchase!

514 September 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

510 September 2016

Classic Range - Comfortable and attractive.

510 September 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

507 September 2016

Classic Range - Both purchases are excellent

520 August 2016

Classic Range - too time consuming review

518 August 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

518 August 2016

Classic Range - After 11 years of use we decided to change our covers and replace the cushions. The staff made the ordering process clear and checked all details thoroughly. Everything arrived very well labelled and packaged. We used the technician fitting service. This was carried out with efficiency, care to our home and a pristine finish after steaming.

515 August 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

515 August 2016

Classic Range - Perfect fit. I would recommend that a technician always fits the covers though. I would never have been able to do it and have it look like new. It was hard enough trying to remove the old base covers.

514 August 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

411 August 2016

Classic Range - Good

511 August 2016

Classic Range - Comfortable, supportive and exactly as I ordered.

509 August 2016

Classic Range - We already had Classic chairs, bought from Mellis. We are delighted with the replacement seat cushions (the previous ones we found too firm) and the replacement covers (the originals were not entirely to our taste) are more contemporary and of a pattern which will retain its fresh looks for many years.

508 August 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

404 August 2016

Classic Range - The sofa and armchair look very smart and are comfortable.

531 July 2016

Classic Range - replaced worn covers for new

528 July 2016

Classic Range - This was a spontaneous purchase in a sale. Pleased with the look and quality of the purchase bought at a good price. We were also offered extra cushions to complement the originals so felt this was an extra bonus.

525 July 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

522 July 2016

Classic Range - As Above

422 July 2016

Classic Range - Good

522 July 2016

Classic Range - Have had these two sofas for 16 years and they are comfy and we fully recommend them. Have replaced all cushions twice and the frames are as good as new.

502 July 2016

Classic Range - Very pleased indeed with our purchases

501 July 2016

Classic Range - I bought my sofas 15 years ago and still love them, so wanted to re-cover. The original material was no longer available, but I looked through every material in the store before choosing another in a similar colour but with a small gold highlight. I am very pleased with the result. I had their technician fit the covers and they have made the sofas look like new. There are also some clever additional support rods to help prevent cushion slippage and this has made my sofa experience even better. I could have bought new sofas for less, but these ones are classic, timeless and will fit in with any décor. I simply love them. If I was to move to another house, or change my colour-scheme, they would still fit. Marvellous.
Buying the replacement covers was simple, as Multiyork had my details from the original purchase, the timescale was reasonable and the technician who came to fit them was cheerful and quick. Really, the whole process was simple. I don't like shopping, don't consider it fun, but this was fine.

530 June 2016

Classic Range - simple elegant and comfortable sofa

Thank you for taking the time to comment and upload a photo for us all to see. Your sofa is looking beautiful in your home. 

529 June 2016

Classic Range - Great range, available in many sizes, so fits the space beautifully.

516 June 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

510 June 2016

Classic Range - New covers and back & seat cushions have totally renovated my 17 year old MultiYork Lounge Suite.
Looks like new again.

508 June 2016

Classic Range - We like the style, design and comfort they provide.

508 June 2016

Classic Range - The frames of our chairs are around 18 years old but are perfectly good. We therefore only purchased new cushions and covers but they now look just like new. The colour is just as the sample, which is sometimes an issue so all in all we are very pleased with our purchase.

508 June 2016

Classic Range - A major investment for us, but we are extremely pleased with our two sofas which have been custom made to our requirements, with choice of filling, fabric etc.

508 June 2016

Classic Range - The traditional sofa range is just that. It is available in different back heights and seat depths.

529 May 2016

Classic Range - Well made, comfortable and practical.

525 May 2016

Classic Range - All good and the covers looked so much better than I had hoped for so delighted.

225 May 2016

Classic Range - Having had a sofa bed previously and being very happy with it, I was very disappointed with my new sofabed. It has come looking grubby as if it has been used previously. The material catches everything. I presume it had been treated to protect against staining as I requested that but sadly I feel it is not of the same quality as the previous one

Thank you for taking the time to comment. Product Quality is of the utmost importance to us here at Multiyork. Please accept my apologies you are not happy with the appearance. I have been in correspondence with the showroom who I believe have contacted yourself and have arranged to come out to view your issues.

520 April 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

519 April 2016

Classic Range - Our sofas are about 15 years old now and new cushion inners for the large sofa has made it very comfortable again. Wouldn't look anywhere else if I needed new stuff. Have bought a couple of covers and change them summer and winter.

510 April 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

507 April 2016

Classic Range - Good quality, comfortable

531 March 2016

Classic Range - You just have to sit on our new settees to know they are well crafted

424 March 2016

Classic Range - Cushions are not sitting as they should - hopefully this will change with use.

521 March 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

519 March 2016

Classic Range - Very pleased with the appearance and quality of product.

516 March 2016

Classic Range - We have purchased from MultiYork in the past so know what we like . The settees are just the style we wanted. High at the back and not too deep in the cushion. We like the fact we are able to try different styles in the shop and receive advice if needed.

513 March 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

512 March 2016

Classic Range - Product's are very pleasing and comfortable.

410 March 2016

502 March 2016

Classic Range - I am very pleased with the chair, the fabric and the workmanship.

501 March 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

428 February 2016

Classic Range - Very comfortable. Good colour.
Customers should be warned that colours displayed in the window and under show
room lights will not look as bright in the home. This is not a complaint but just a comment. I took this into consideration as I had learned from bitter experience and I am very pleased with the indigo Prado colour of my new suite

525 February 2016

Classic Range - It is economical and environmentally friendly to have the option of having Multiyork sofas recovered.

424 February 2016

Classic Range - Got cushion choice wrong. Small sofas tend to be firmer than larger ones. Replacements much better. Products all seem expensive compared with competition.

523 February 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

522 February 2016

Classic Range - Very good quality, comfortable, stylish and practical. Excellent sofas, we are delighted with our purchase. Gorgeous rich teal colour too. Sofabed comfy as sofa and bed, real advance.

421 February 2016

Classic Range - A 'classic' sofa and much better now Mitch new cushions. I do wish I had been bolder in my choice of fabric now and think a velvet would have looked better

417 February 2016

Classic Range - It looks very good but I am slightly disappointed by the way the seats creep forward every time you sit on them for any length of time. Our last Multiyork sofa and chair did the same, but nothing like so pronouncedly as the new one. I think it must have something to do with the material in which the seats are covered. After an evening spent watching the telly, the sofa needs to be reassembled so to speak.

510 February 2016

Classic Range - Really pleased with the fit and quality of fabric we chose.

504 February 2016

Classic Range - Very pleased with it - looks superb.

503 February 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

203 February 2016

Classic Range - The furniture is well made but the covers were awful, the fabric was wearing badly after only three months. Though to be fair, Multiyork have now given us new covers at no cost, though these were exceptionally creased when they arrived - only partly improved by steaming.

502 February 2016

Classic Range - Excellent

528 January 2016

Classic Range - As Above

526 January 2016

Classic Range - As soon as we saw the product we purchased we fell in love with it.

426 January 2016

Classic Range - have just noticed that the arm protectors are not all the same size of drop !

426 January 2016

Classic Range - Comfy chair. It would be good if the fire resistant tag could have been underneath a seat cushion on the base rather than dangling from the back where it is visible. We had to remove it and have put it u dry a seat cushion.

505 January 2016

Classic Range - Furniture of a high standard of workmanship and good quality materials. Very satisfied.

405 January 2016

Classic Range - The settees are as we expected as we had used Multyork before. We are impressed with the quality and finish but, given the above experiences, are unlikely to order from them again.

502 January 2016

Classic Range - -No further comment

530 December 2015

Classic Range - Excellent

524 December 2015

526 November 2015

Classic Range - Find that the arm caps ruck up every time you sit down rather annoying does not happen on the settee

Classic Range - Delivery crew on time and despite a long day (we were last of 5 deliveries including several in the NE) were cheerful and helpful

Classic Range - Excellent

Classic Range - I'm very pleased with the item.

509 November 2015

Classic Range - Beautiful design, so comfy, and fits in well with our classic sofas

205 November 2015

Classic Range - After delivery the feather back cushion pads were found to emit a strong odour. Upon inspection by Multiyork's agent I was advised that the smell was probably due to being stored in damp conditions and would take some six months to dissipate. Shop staff advised me that Multiyork were unwilling to replace the pads, and I was therefore obliged to replace them with hollow fibre pads at an additional expense to me of £90.00, and In view of the initial cost of this sofa I feel that Multiyork should reimburse me.

503 November 2015

Classic Range - Great sofa

503 November 2015

Classic Range - Very good

501 November 2015

Classic Range - The new cushion interiors are very satisfactory.

Classic Range - I appreciated the updates regarding the work on the sofas, and following delivery information.

528 October 2015

Classic Range - I am really pleased with my settees they are very comfortable and I chose well (with the help of the staff in the shop

522 October 2015

Classic Range - Particularly helpful salesman in Kingston shop
