Made to Measure Home with Stitched x Arlo & Jacob

The process of decorating or redesigning your room can either fill you with excitement or dread, depending on your enthusiasm for interiors. Made to measure upholstered furniture and soft furnishing can be a godsend, as they’ll give you exactly what you want without having to trail highstreets and shops searching for something similar, but not quite right. At both Arlo & Jacob and Stitched, we specialise in providing a plethora of fabrics and styles to suit every home, and they’re all made from scratch once you place your order.

01. Order free fabric samples

Ordering fabric swatches is a crucial part of the process of ordering bespoke furniture or curtains and blinds. Fabrics often look and feel very different to their online pictures, plus they can completely change in both natural and artificial light, so it’s important to hold them up to your interiors to see how they will work in your home. If you’re doing your whole room in one go, you might want to consider creating a mood board of fabric, paint and wallpaper samples to see how they all work together.

At both Arlo & Jacob and Stitched, you can order free fabric swatches straight to your door to help you select the right fabric for your home. Stitched have over 300 fabrics to choose from, and even better - - - they’re all eco-conscious!

02. Measure your space

Always measure your window and rooms! Arlo & Jacob recommend measuring all the entryways into your chosen room, to double check the furniture will always fit. This will avoid any moving-in disasters. Arlo & Jacob have an easy-to-use online size guide that you can download to help with all your measurements. A top tip is to lay down newspapers or masking tape to the floor to show how much space your new sofa will take up and if there’s enough space around it to move freely.

We also have handy online measuring guides to get accurate measurements for your windows, so that your curtains and blinds fit perfectly.

03. Choose your custom details

When it comes to sofas, Arlo & Jacob have a huge range of sizes and styles available to choose from. Consider whether you want a traditional style, corner, chaise, modern or modular design. Play around with their online rendering tool to see what your chosen design will look like in your favourite fabric. You can also pick from four leg colours and even contact them to discuss custom fills where applicable.

The same goes for your made to measure curtains and made to measure blinds. We have a unique online studio where you can design your perfect curtains or blinds in an amazing array of customisable features, such as various lining choices, pooling and the option to add a pole or track to your order.
