Where others use mechanisation, we used skilled artisans ensuring each sofa, chair or ottoman is given the complete care and attention it deserves. Each component follows rigid quality specifications and manufacturing processes.

Cushions

Cushions are offered with a range of fillings as standard offerings – feather and foam, premium foam and dacron (seating cushions) and holifil/dacron for firmer back cushions.

Optional choices include ‘Luxury Foam’, Enduro Foam, Spring Cells and Feather combinations.

Coil Springs and Contemporary Springing

All Wills Furniture designs include fully hand tied coil spring construction for extra comfort and durability. This includes the ‘front edge’ of a sofa or chair importantly. However if required the option of contemporary springing remains a selection option.
