Our Team

At Sofas by Shopex, we are a proud and dedicated team, none more so than our skilled craftsmen and women that work their magic within our workshop.

It is fair to say they are the true artisans of the company and Shopex would simply not be the same without them. All the words in the world wouldn’t do their skills justice.
Why not have a quick look at some of the members of our team……
THE CUTTING TEAM
The cutting team is headed up by Simba, a man that likes to get straight to the point – of his sharp and trusty scissors.
Every single hide or selection of fabric is checked for imperfections, before the team prepare the patterns, measure, mark-up and individually hand cut each piece.
THE SEWING TEAM
With our experienced seamstresses at the helm, these are the men that bring it all together and hold everything in. From thread to needle to leather or fabric, sewing is a physical skill as well as an art-form that demands care and patience. With over 60 years of collective experience; their sharp beady eyes constantly check for detail to ensure the hallmark of beautiful, skilled needlework sits proudly on all our furniture.
THE UPHOLSTERY TEAM
With Fungai at the helm, Bright and Lionel are upholstery masters, these men know how to get the tension just right, the buttons deep enough, and the comfort factor spot on. Years and years of experience; yes, nigh on 30 years each, means these guys have practically grown up right here in the workshop!
Whether it’s hand antiquing, testing comfort or hand-tacking stud lines, these are the boys that finally make sure everything is exactly as it should be. Nothing gets past these experts until your Sofa is perfect in every way.
Only when they’re satisfied that everything is as it should be, will it leave their hands and our workshop, to journey to your home.

A Positive Force For People

We look our best in subdued colors, sophisticated cuts, and a general air of sleek understatement. I believe in comfort.
