What We Do

What We Do

“The Luxury Sofa Maker…”

üp is a family run furniture design and manufacturing business in the beautiful Cotswolds. We have become renowned for our mix of modern and traditional furniture designs for both retail and trade customers. Our family business began over 40 years ago as Upholstery Techniques, which soon became abbreviated to Uptec and now we are known as üp – we like to keep things simple.

Made in Britain… and proud!

Our skilled craftspeople handmake all our furniture to order from our family run workshops in the Cotswolds. From here we manufacture from frame to finish a range of sofas, chairs and beds. We offer a variety of designs, styles, fabrics and cushion interiors. We love working with natural materials where possible whilst respecting traditional craft as much as modern production. We source materials mainly from the UK and take huge pride in our British heritage.

Family built and family run…

Our journey began over 40 years ago by Phil, with the help of Sam who was only six years old at the time. Both Phil and Sam continue to progress the company and are very much part of the day to day running.

Handmade, flexible furniture!

Here at üp we will make the process of choosing your furniture as simple and enjoyable as possible. We understand the importance of being flexible so offer both fixed and loose covers that are handmade from our family run workshops in the Cotswolds. In our fabric library we have a wide range of textiles from leading suppliers as well as our own specially curated in-house collection.

Working towards a greener future

We are committed to protecting the local and global environment by minimizing negative environmental impacts of our business activities, products and services.
