our business

DFS is the number one sofa specialist in Europe – but we haven’t forgotten the principles that created our success.

We opened our first store in 1969, we’re still hand-crafting our products here in the UK – and we’re still just as committed to our people, as well as the customers who are at the heart of our business.

Is there a secret to our success? We’re all about great people working together. People who are well-trained to provide the best customer service – delivering a retail experience built on inspirational designs that now include exclusive ranges such as Country Living, House Beautiful and French Connection.

Listen to our people
