Great reasons to buy the Menu Tailor Sofa

  • The Tailor sofa, designed by Rui Alves, was inspired by wooden hangers that suspended bespoke suits in his Grandfather's tailor shop. 
  • With a focus on authenticity the sofa was designed to showcase all of its parts, unlike most conventional sofas.
  • Available in two finishes, Kvadrat Hallingdal or Sorensen Dakar Leather.

Why you'll love this sofa

The Tailor sofa designed by Rui Alves for Menu takes inspiration from the designers youthful experience of helping in his Grandfather's tailoring business. The image of a tailor bent over wooden tables whilst wooden hangers gracefully suspending grey suits stuck with Rui and heavily influenced this design. Wanting to create an authentic sofa, the Tailor has all of its elements on show. The sofa has a light and spacious appearance as the wooden frame of the sofa supports the upholstered section creating a comfortable sofa that's perfect for everyday use. The Tailor is beautiful from all angles, particularly the back, and should take pride of place in any interior setting.

Available in either wool rich light grey Kvadrat Hallingdal upholstery or a dark brown semi-aniline leather from Sorensen.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
