Product Reviews

522 September 2015

Classic Range - Staff seemed very well-informed and helpful.

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.

513 September 2015

Classic Range - Well made, good material

411 September 2015

Classic Range - Pleased with the cushions and covers.

409 September 2015

Classic Range - The whole experience of shopping at Multiyork in Gerrards Cross was very professional.

509 September 2015

Classic Range - We are very pleased with the products

503 September 2015

Classic Range - Charming assistant in your Southampton store

528 August 2015

Classic Range - Early days as I do not know how the loose covers will wear over time.

525 August 2015

Classic Range - Very helpful in providing advice on new loose cover for one of my Multiyork sofas.

521 August 2015

Classic Range - Considerate and efficient

420 August 2015

Classic Range - New covers have given suite a new lease of life

420 August 2015

Classic Range - The goods are as described , the delivery took place at 7.30am on a Saturday which was a bit too early.

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 - Very good

506 August 2015

Classic Range - Exactly as requested to the letter.

405 August 2015

Classic Range - Good on the whole. However it was poor on choice of fabric as staff seemed confused by the new? software and told us our chosen fabric was discontinued. We then chose an alternative very hastily. At home, I doubted the information as the company had sent us a sample of the original Romo material only a week previously. I rang the Chester store where the assistant was excellent and pursued my enquiry relentlessly. We were able to have our original choice. There is an obvious need for more rigorous staff training as this aspect was VERY BAD.

505 August 2015

Classic Range - Well made and very comfortable

529 July 2015

Classic Range - The only thing I wasn't satisfied with was the promised sample of my chosen fabrics never arrived. It would have helped with choosing other decor.

529 July 2015

Classic Range - The staff at Harrogate showroom were first class and very very helpful .

526 July 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.

221 May 2015

Classic Range - NOT UP TO STANDARD

520 May 2015

Classic Range - We have always received excellent service from this company

514 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.

513 April 2015

Classic Range - good

513 April 2015

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 - pleased with quality

521 February 2015

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
Cheryl Croker

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 - Looks good in situ

527 October 2014

Classic Range - Excellent all round

524 October 2014

Classic Range - as previously excellent service with friendly helpful staff

423 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.
