DFS is delighted to be an official partner of Team GB.
We started our business in Yorkshire, England and have been designing, making and selling sofas in Britain for five decades.
We know all there is to know about sofas, so we’re definitely the right people to provide our British athletes with an excuse to put their feet up.
We’ve put all our boundless expertise into a very special sofa for British House.
Taking into account its impressive new home in Rio, where all things British will be celebrated, we put our heart and soul into creating an iconic, Chesterfield-inspired range that Team GB can be proud of.
The Britannia was designed by our team and handmade in our Derbyshire factory by our talented upholsterers. We made the sofa frame in our own wood mill in Nottinghamshire, we sourced the fabric from a traditional mill in Lancashire and topped it all off with oak feet, designed in Britain and hand turned exclusively for DFS.
To celebrate the sporting success of Team GB we even added gold studs to represent medals; in fact, The Britannia accent chair has 233 studs - the exact number of gold medals Team GB has won in Summer Olympic Games to date.
Like all of our sofas, The Britannia is made to British standards, which means it’s at peak performance for strength and durability – like our Team GB athletes.
So, when you’re in British House feel free to make yourselves at home, get comfy and sink back into quality made in Britain.
