Not a boxing match but sofas.

Anyone have any experience of this brand who can share feedback?

We bought a pair of Collins and Hayes couches 13 years ago and they are still being put to good use in another's home.

Expensive then but seriously good quality. The sort of item that you would re-cover and still enjoy.

Are they still handmade in the UK or has the brand failed since and the name been bought by some conglomerate who is labelling turds ?

Their head office address doesn't look like a huge factory making stuff in the UK, also put your postcode in their local dealer search, it just results in an half finished web page with the default latin text filler.

Apparently their new website went up May 18th, so just not finished. Looking at their social media stuff, there's not a whole lot of those pictures of craftsmen in the factory you'd expect, but there are one or two.
