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.

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

Classic Range - Particularly helpful salesman in Kingston shop

422 October 2015

Classic Range - Covers fit well and were available for collection at agreed time.

220 October 2015

Classic Range - Delivery was an issue . Made a booking to fit then failed to attend had to follow it up myself .

417 October 2015

Classic Range - Replacement covers were very creased after packaging and I had to ask for them to be steamed , after which they looked much better . Fortunately I had been informed in the shop that they would be otherwise I would not have known to ask ! Covers do however touch the floor on a couple of sides.

514 October 2015

Classic Range - Extremely pleased with new covers so far. Seem expensive, but hopefully will turn out to be good value in the long run.

514 October 2015

Classic Range - Well made replacement chair covers.

514 October 2015

513 October 2015

Classic Range - Excellent

408 October 2015

Classic Range - The sofas are very comfortable but I find the arm rests too low. Perhaps I should have picked that up in the showroom when I was trying them but I haven't. I expect I will get used to them.

406 October 2015

Classic Range - Comfortable, stylish

206 October 2015

Classic Range - The hem of the covers are significantly higher than what we had seen (and photographed) in the store, and we can easily see the swivel mechanism. We have called to discuss this issue several times but keep being fobbed off. Not happy at all, and minded to give the chairs to Oxfam as they are NOT what we were lead to believe we were buying.

522 September 2015

Classic Range - Excellent

422 September 2015

Classic Range - Overall, I am very pleased with the furniture BUT although the loose covers mostly stop just above the ground, in two cases the covers trail on the ground at the sides. Some of the material was creased, which was presumably when packed in polythene, and may hang out, but if not, may need ironing - hence the instructions would be invaluable.

It took too long to deliver the goods from when I ordered them.

409 August 2015

Classic Range - The chair looked a little crumpled on receipt and shabby but now that it has settled and is fine. The cover looks a little tight in some places and lose in others but overall is acceptable.

508 August 2015

Classic Range - Excellent

506 August 2015

431 May 2015

Classic Range - Hoping when the sofa is returned it will be much improved to the previous one

527 May 2015

Classic Range - Extremely good quality. Replaced the covers of our 2006 purchase in 2015 ony because we wanted a change. Original covers, although cleaned a few times, were almost as good as new, and the suite cushions have lost none of their firmness over the years.

520 May 2015

522 April 2015

Classic Range - I am short of time as I am about to leave the house to go to Multiyork to order a second sofa. I think that says it all.

420 April 2015

Classic Range - I have had to buy replacement cushion covers less than 2 years after buying a very expensive suite of furniture. Although pale coloured fabric had Guardsman protection guaranteed for 10 years it had discoloured badly: BEWARE Multiyork only guarantee fabric for 1 year.

217 March 2015

Classic Range - Told me I could not have my chosen fabric: I knew it was available I offered to order the fabric & send to store:
The store then " discovered" that my chosen fabric was available . I paid a deposit in November 2014, & then was told the delivery date for before Xmas would be delayed until 2015: as my chosen fabric "had to be ordered".

517 March 2015

Classic Range - very comfortable

407 March 2015

420 February 2015

Classic Range - The cover looks very good and was fairly easy for 2 people to fit it.

513 February 2015

Classic Range - Excellent

411 February 2015

Classic Range - This was the range with a short seat which was what I wanted. I was also sold on the swivel chair.
I am a bit disappointed with the final finish. There was a small crease which unfortunately happens to fall in my eyeline and a corner of the stool which could have done with a little more padding. The covers at the side of the chair also have some "bulging". These are small things but mean I cannot give it an "excellent". i do not regret buying it.
