At Sits they have really thought about what is important for customers today and what they really need from seating solutions. For instance in the design portfolio you will find sofas and chairs that have really well proportioned seats, arms and feet. What is really impressive, is there ability to use the minimum sizing and yet create, superbly comfortable seats that have the maximum sitting space, a seriously great attribute for any seating options, particularly given room sizes are smaller than ever these days. Having said this about sizing, Sits also produce larger scale sofas with deep luxury seats, which means if you are seeking out modern contemporary furniture thats is well made, in beautifully styles, with a vast range of soft fabric colours to select from, then Sits is ideal.
We may not always notice as we whizz through life with our busy lifestyles, but design is all around us. Occasionally something catches your eye and causes you to stop and take a moment to inspect it more closely, it could be, unusual, awful, interesting or absolutely stunning.
At Sits there eight strong design team all come with quite varied backgrounds, which provides a rich diversity that blends together and inspires utterly remarkable designs. Niels Gammelgaard is from Copenhagen having studied industrial design at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, his designs are well respected as well as being appreciated by consumers purchasing habits, making these products best sellers.

Maintaining a clear transparency between our website, sales team and showroom display, is very important for customers and Lenleys. These days buying online after visiting a store, can be quite disconnected. If you are happy dealing with a particular member of our sales team in-store, you can carry this relationship on, via our website. When you reach the checkout stage, there is an option to select the member of staff you dealt within-store, meaning you can continue that association, ensuring continuity of our personal service.
Furniture should be designed to last, after all, it is not an everyday purchase. At the Sits factory, using quality materials comes as standard, the clever bit is in the assembly. Before you can build any furniture you need a design, once this is in place, patterns are created and models are made. These models provide an in-sight as to what component parts will be required and they offer a chance for the frame makers to engineer a frame that will not only suit the shape, but also be strongly constructed to support all the filling and covers. Well that's how it used to be done. These days a more complexed and accurate high-tec approach is available with computer software. The designers now produce 3D visuals which are rendered for patterning, components and strength testing. This gives designers opportunities to adjust and tweak multiple elements to ensure the final product can withstand daily use, while retaining it’s stylish demeanour.
Often colour, pattern or weave will play an important role in the decision making process, when you are researching furniture for the home. At Sits, they have a huge collection of soft coverings available for the main frame and accents. All these fabrics when sold in the UK will be fully complaint with the very latest fire retardant requirements. The fabrics are broken down into ranges of price categories which allows you to discover colour at the most suitable price point. Because of the vast selection of colour ways it pretty much impossible to hold every single option in stock, inevitably this leads to longer ordering time. Please allow around 7-9wks or in seasonal holiday periods 10-12wks for delivery.
If soft covering is not for you, then Sits has an excellent leather colour pallet, ideal if you enjoy the natural soft touch of good quality leather and of course the added bonus of leather is that it’s relatively easy to maintain, while being considerably more durable.
