  1. How can you tell quality upholstery?
  2. The best way to identify high-quality upholstery is by inspecting the inner frame, the support foundation, the padding, and the cushioning materials.
  3. Where are Olson and Baker sofas made?
  4. Our upholstery is built in Yorkshire, UK to last in the traditional way by master craftsmen.
  5. What makes a sofa a loveseat?
  6. A loveseat is shorter than a typical sofa. The width is decreased to around 120-140cm to make a large one and a half seater.
  7. What is the purpose of a loveseat?
  8. Loveseats offer an intimate space for two people. That said they're also a cosy space for one person to curl up and relax with a good book.
  9. Can two people sit on a loveseat?
  10. A loveseat typically fits two people snugly, but this depends on the size. We always advise checking whether the seat width is suitable before buying.

        Fantastic customer service throughout the ordering process.

        Great products - really pleased with my order.

        So glad I came across Olson & Baker for my home accessories that I would not find elsewhere on the High Street.

        Beautiful item arrived earlier than indicated.

        Customer service informed me of this & then followed up after delivery to make sure it arrived safely.

        Highly recommend!

        Great range of products.

        Purchased a beautiful rug from here and had a smooth overall buying experience.

        Beautiful and high quality furniture!

        Excellent delivery and customer services, even during difficult times like Covid 19.

        First class service.

        The Olson Baker team continue to deliver outstanding advice and product knowledge.

        Lovely website, great communication, fast delivery and they came in at a price other shops couldn't compete with on the chair I was after.

        Easily recommended.

        Excellent communication and speedy delivery...

        Couldn't have been better and will certainly buy from the company again.

        Fantastic service, Jonathan was extremely helpful through my purchase.

        Definitely recommend and would use again.

        Thanks! Angela

        Excellent product but more importantly during these difficult times was the customer service level and great delivery team ....

        take note Heal’s as you’ve not got a clue how to service customers

        Very good service, great communication and arrived very promptly

        Thank you

        The service is superb and the website is so intuitive! 10 out of 10! :D Lee

        Olson + Baker were wonderful to deal with.

        We purchased our item (a beautiful coat hook) but had to delay delivery due to a trip overseas.

        We weren't dealing with an automated system, just real people who cared enough to help.

        Bought some lovely wine glasses as a gift, quick delivery, great customer service and high quality product.

        Would definitely buy from Olson and Baker again.

        It has been an absolute pleasure buying a lovely piece of furniture from Olsen + Baker. Russell has been a delight to deal with, keeping me informed at every step of the delivery, even down to which colour would fit with my decor - nothing was too much.

        I can’t recommend highly enough.

        Really excellent customer service. Can not recommend this company highly enough - the products are high quality and their communication with the customer is first class. Jonathon always responded promptly to any queries and was very helpful.

        I would definitely buy from them again.

        Olson + Bakers service and products have been outstanding. I can't recommend Jonathan at Olson + Baker enough.

        He is an absolute star and has gone out of his way to provide superb service.

        Recently purchased a Nordic Style candle holder, which I had admired at a recent stay at a holiday home in Norfolk.  Product arrived very quickly. Contact via email from Jonathan. Excellent customer service and a gorgeous product too.

        Thank you Jonathan and all at Olson and Baker.
