519 March 2015

Classic Range - Suits us and our home well.

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

Classic Range - The furniture is for us still new and too early to give a proper rating. We are so far pleased with what we have chosen.

506 March 2015

Classic Range - Excerllent service

504 March 2015

504 March 2015

427 February 2015

523 February 2015

Classic Range - Very comfortable

422 February 2015

Classic Range - pleased with quality

521 February 2015

Classic Range - we v pleased with service and the product received

421 February 2015

Classic Range - When ordering the cushions the service was very slow and interrupted but we received excellent service when we had a problem fitting the covers

520 February 2015

Classic Range - Staff were helpful and gave a personal approach, not pushing for a sale and allowing time to browse and think.

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 - Very friendly and helpful people at Newbury

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.

406 February 2015

Classic Range - Happy

406 February 2015

Classic Range - Polite and helpful staff. although a bit expensive, we keep coming back. These covers are one of at least six sets of covers bought from Multiyork.

506 February 2015

Classic Range - An excellent range of furniture with a variety of comfort fillings and materials.

202 February 2015

Classic Range - We were rather disappointed with the quality of our sofa. The material seems far too tight on part of the seat cushions, creating an unseemly bulge. The seat back cushions are understuffed, causing them to look rather baggy, while the 'skirt', around the base of the sofa, appears to be line with card, which has buckled so that it does not hang properly.

I am sorry to hear of your concerns with your furniture. The covers to your furniture carried 1-year guarantee against manufacturing faults, and it is unfortunate that you did not bring this matter to our attention during the guarantee period to allow us the opportunity to address the matter. I also note that you are not happy with the interiors, which you feel are underfilled. The interiors are still within the warranty period, therefore should you wish, we would be able to arrange for a technician to visit your home and inspect them. Please do not hesitate to contact our store who would be willing to arrange this for you. Thank you for your feedback.

Kind Regards

531 January 2015

Classic Range - Excellent service - sales staff very helpful.

430 January 2015

Classic Range - We've had these sofa's for over 15 years. It is good that the range is still being marketed as we were able to purchase replacement seat cushions, and can arrange for new covers. Full marks also for being able to refer us on to someone who was able to undertake minor repairs.

522 January 2015

Classic Range - good fit of the covers. Colours of the material as expected

520 January 2015

Classic Range - The new covers fit perfectly, making the suite look like new giving a whole new look to the lounge.

511 January 2015

Classic Range - The sofa is well made and just as described.

510 January 2015

Classic Range - Very pleased with purchases thus far

510 January 2015

Classic Range - Good and attentive service from, the Cheltenham store with sesible advice

510 January 2015

Classic Range - excellent

509 January 2015

Classic Range - Excellent sofa, delivered on time, unwrapped and positioned in room just as promised.

507 January 2015

Classic Range - very good thanks

507 January 2015

Classic Range - I am really pleased with my sofa bed. It is much more comfortable to sit on than I was expecting from a sofa bed and looks lovely. I already had 2 sofas from the Classic range which still look good after 13 years.

506 January 2015

Classic Range - The staff in MULTIYORK shops are always available to spend time with you which is a real plus. Polite and courteous - they know their products. Pro-active and patient.

512 December 2014

Classic Range - We have received excellent service from all staff at Multiyork form first visit and subsequent visits.

512 December 2014

Classic Range - looks lovely, maybe should have gone for multi wrap cushion rather than feather, but very well made.

411 December 2014

Classic Range - Very helpful sales staff.

506 December 2014

Classic Range - Delivery of covers very prompt and excellent quality

505 December 2014

Classic Range - Had 2 similar style sofas previously for nearly 30 years. Very pleased. Played safe with plain fabric 9339 in natural, it will fit most colour schemes and has a very cosy and warm feel to it. Plan to go colourful with curtains and cushions!

426 November 2014

Classic Range - Product was to high standard of all my previous purchases

520 November 2014

Classic Range - First class.

519 November 2014

Classic Range - Purchasing in a fabric of our choice was very easy and delivery time quicker than expected.

519 November 2014

Classic Range - A lovely experience from beginning to end. A way to improve even more would be to get delivery closer to the time the furniture was ready, the delay was three weeks in our case which is a bit excessive when the furniture only took around six weeks to make from order.

418 November 2014

Classic Range - The arm covers are not long enough on the inside side so they tend to ruck up!! The inside edge tends to catch the cushion edge when one sits on the settee so they end up with a rolled up edge.
The valances are somewhat disappointingly untidy in the way they settle.
The backrest cushion backs tend to leave a gap between the central cushion when one sits on the settee and then subsequently get up. This then leaves an untidy impression. The overall colour of the settees also appear to be somewhat darker than the material we choose. We are not that enamoured of the final product.

515 November 2014

Classic Range - From shopping to delivery the communication and execution of our delivery
has been brilliant - we love our new Sofa which has exceeded our expections

412 November 2014

Classic Range - I am a little disappointed with the metal ring under the swivel armchair. If this was inset into a wooden ring then the chair would be easy to move on a carpeted floor. As it is the chair has to be lifted to move it, in my mind this is quite a design fault and prevents me recommending it to friends.

512 November 2014

Classic Range - Just what we wanted

509 November 2014

Classic Range - The style of furniture is just what we wanted. It appears robust and comfortable, and the fabric and colour match the décor in our living room.

507 November 2014

Classic Range - Seems a robust sofa. Bit expensive.

531 October 2014

Classic Range - Love the sofa and soaf bed

530 October 2014

Classic Range - New covers for existing furniture - our fifth set in fifteen years, we like being able to replace seat and back cushions to keep the furniture pristine.

530 October 2014

Classic Range - Cant fault the quality or the service.Worth every penny.

530 October 2014

Classic Range - Pleased with same

530 October 2014

Classic Range - Very good

523 October 2014

Classic Range - Satisfied

422 October 2014

Classic Range - Exeter very helpful...still waiting for my sample from the new Reading Store...not a good start...

521 October 2014

Classic Range - fine

512 October 2014

Classic Range - Delivery quick and easy. The delivery team were efficient and charming

211 October 2014

Classic Range - Because the cushions were so hard (one of your assistants did compare them after I had bought them to sitting on soft concrete, I had to order another insert for one cushion at a cost of £79. I had to wait 1 month for delivery and then the cushion itself smells as though it has been stored somewhere damp. I will have to wait yet another month at least for a replacement interior while the smell from the current insert is evident in the room and I am just hoping that it will not permanently affect the cover it is in.

510 October 2014

Classic Range - Over the years we've bought 2 suites and two sets of replacement covers. Service has always been excellent. Friendly, knowledgeable staff who always seem to know when to help and when to give a customer some space. We always recommend Multiyork to friends.

403 October 2014

Classic Range - the staff were helpful and instructive

403 October 2014

Classic Range - The furniture is of excellent quality & comfort but your costs to have new covers or to be recovered were far too expensive .I have purchased new washable covers from Plumbs whose covers I have had on my other Multi York suite.

502 October 2014

Classic Range - No problems

227 September 2014

Classic Range - new infill for cushions starting to breakdown after only a couple of weeks.

Thank you for letting us have your feedback & I am sorry that you are not entirly satisfied with your replacement interiors. I have asked that a member of our store team contact you to discuss further.

Many thanks
Multiyork Customer Service Team

525 September 2014

Classic Range - Comfy! and beautiful. I appreciate wide range of colours and patterns to choose from.

515 September 2014

Classic Range - I have had my classic three piece suite for 14 years and it's still going strong. The new cover on my chair have made it look like new.

514 September 2014

Classic Range - This is a lovely design, I do need some cushions, but didn't want ones that matched exactly. I would also like some classic dining chairs and table if you ever do any, I am thinking of reproduction Chippendale (not the muscle men!)/Sheraton/Hepplewhite. Gillow also did some good classic designs, worth reproducing, I think.

I have a small cabinet from your Chateau range, which is very nice, and better than it looked in the catalogue.

409 September 2014

Classic Range - It would be good to have some buttons with screw pin fittings to secure the arm caps to the furniture.

Classic Range - Suite seems ok - rather surprised to find it a lot lighter than previous Classic Suite some 10 years ago - hope that it lasts as well.

524 June 2014

Classic Range - Good until this mindless feedback request, which now won't send and can't eliminate. For customer satisfaction - avoid such meaningless twaddle!

524 June 2014

Classic Range - Everything about it is great

519 June 2014

Classic Range - First class. Staff very attentive and helpful.

518 June 2014

Classic Range - Very helpful staff who kept me well informed of progress of product,only problem was that the covers I chose turned out to be no longer available but store was not notified.I therefore had to return and make a new selection.

511 June 2014

Classic Range - Very helpful.

511 June 2014

Classic Range - Excellent quality. Muliyork allowed us to choose the fabric, cushions and, best of all, remove the covers for dry cleaning.

510 June 2014

Classic Range - Loving the suite. Though delivery was delayed was fully informed of the problem. Not only did they deliver it they set it up too, making sure it was placed in the position we wanted it

507 June 2014

Classic Range - A comfortable range of furniture with excellent quality

405 June 2014

Classic Range - Covers/ armcaps mixed up in boxes for different sofas, had fun sorting out.Good packaging

404 June 2014

Classic Range - I already have a chair and love it so I still bought a classic sofa but from showroom in Chichester, very pleased.

404 June 2014

Classic Range - Quality excellent

130 May 2014

Classic Range - I bought a 2-seater couch and an armchair and within a few weeks after the guarantee ran out, the material on the seat just disintegrated. I went back to the store and the then manager was quite off-hand, did not want to know and I think he did not even bother to do an inverstigation, dismissed and told me it is not their responsibility. For the last 2 year I have been covering the couch and armchair with throws, but everytime I looked at them I felt angry. I now had new covers done the seats but in a different material, which blends in. More than once I had wished, that I had gone to DFS or a company like that, the items would still be ok. But I wanted quality, or what I thought was quality!!!

529 May 2014

Classic Range - Marcia in Salisbury pleasant and extremely helpful with choice of fabric, also patient and well- informed.

423 May 2014

Classic Range - Comfortable suite well made

514 May 2014

Classic Range - Seats a bit harder than we expected, perhaps because they are new and the testers in the branch were more used/worn

514 May 2014

Classic Range - Excellent

I am sorry to hear that you have received the incorrect interiors for your furniture. May I firstly apologise for the upset caused? I have spoken with our store who have advised that they are aware of this matter and they will be contacting you again to discuss the matter and the corrective action will be taken. Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.

Kind Regards

Classic Range - Very good, thank you

523 April 2014

Classic Range - Excellent - has lasted well

423 April 2014

Classic Range - All according to plan

418 April 2014

Classic Range - The replacement covers were ready just as had been planned. I collected them myself and your sales assistant helped to carry them to the car with me. I wish however that I had taken more time to choose the material as I am not so pleased with my choice now the covers are on the settee. I should have asked to see a much larger sample of the material to really see how it would look in my home. The small sample is not enough.

517 April 2014

Classic Range - Really excellent product. All my furniture is from Multiyork. I have had two sofa's covered recently via multiyork and they are 15 years of age and now look like new.

416 April 2014

Classic Range - The twist pins ordered did not arrive. The covers are creased . The fitter did deal with some creases but others still exist.

516 April 2014

Classic Range - Understated style. Excellent build quality

115 April 2014

Classic Range - Have had to replace the back cushions after only three years as they had sagged. Very disappointed. Other than replacing parts in existing suite would not consider buying Multiyork again.

Thank you for your feedback. On investigating this further with our store I understand that your original back interiors were of a feather filling, which carried a 2-year guarantee. Unfortunately, as the interiors were some time out of their guarantee period our store were unable to take any further aciton. I note that you have now chosen Hollowfill Deluxe, which I hope are more suitable for your requirements.

Kind Regards

511 April 2014

Classic Range - Excellent service. The salesmen were professional - well informed but NOT pushy!

411 April 2014

Classic Range - Replacement covers fit well. Only minor issue re fitting - see above.

408 April 2014

Classic Range - Paid attention to my needs. Accessed previous business details to ensure compatibility.

204 April 2014

Classic Range - The sofa covers came too large, the fitter said it was the old cushions, but the covers clearly are too big around the frame by about an inch. I wouldn't order them again. I'd go somewhere else that was less expensive for that standard.

I am sorry to hear of your disappointment with your new covers. It is sometimes the case that new interiors are also required as over time they would have condensed down resulting in new covers not fitting as perfectly as desired. We are able to provide you with replacement interiors, which I feel would resolve the problem. Should you wish to purchase new interiors our store would be more than happy to provide you with a cost. Thank you for your feedback.

Kind Regards

503 April 2014

Classic Range - This is the second time I have had new covers made and they are perfect

401 April 2014

Classic Range - One cushion /cover not correctly oriented with a slight pucker.
