Founded by Rohan Blacker and the late Pat Reeves in 2005, sofa.com is a fast growing omnichannel retailer of sofas, armchairs and beds. It is a disruptive brand which owns and controls all elements of the value chain from manufacturing through to delivery.
sofa.com was established on the principles of high quality, good value and excellent customer service, attributes which the Company continues to be known for today. Key to sofa.com’s success is its flexible, tailored product range, market leading delivery times and exceptional customer service.
Participating lender European Capital – a British Business Bank partner – provided financing to support the acquisition of sofa.com by mid-market private equity investor CBPE Capital.
Edward Knighton, Chief Financial Officer, commented:
“European Capital are a supportive financing partner and have provided a flexible loan that suits the exciting next stage in our development and the opening of new showrooms.”
