What does British quality mean to you?

We've joined up with The Telegraph to bring you
three exclusive interviews on the subject of Britishness.

British Olympian Sir Steve Redgrave, radio DJ Jo Whiley and The Telegraph's own Design Editor David Nicholls discussed British brands with a sense of distinctive style (not to mention reliability, timelessness and tradition).

  • Investing in British talent

    Quality and craftsmanship are at the centre of our business, and our initiatives, such as the DFS Design Foundation, are part of our long-term plan to ensure that our design and manufacturing traditions will continue to flourish for the next 40 years.

  • Best of British

    We have developed long-standing relationships with a huge range of UK-based suppliers. The local businesses we work with include the makers of the springs for our sofas, the Lancashire mills that supply quality fabrics for our upholstery and everything in between.
