What Happens at Perch

Our Sofas

EVERY sofa is built in California. We believe in a solid frame to pad with foam and wrap with fabric. We believe in cushions that won’t look like a pancake in 6 months. We believe in choice. We believe in doing it at a mid market price point. We take Customer Service more seriously than others.


"I don't live in Portland; can I still order a couch from Perch?" "I really like a fabric that you don't carry in the store; can I still use it?" Answers to these frequently asked questions and more are just a click away.  


We are a custom sofa studio created by Jonathan Galloway, Willi Galloway, and made better by Trish Grantham. We love couches. We study couches. We believe that everyone deserves a nice couch. We understand that sofas and chairs are more than just furniture.

How Custom Sofas Work

How Custom Sofas Work


The first step in ordering your custom couch is selecting a template frame to start with. Here at Perch we work from hundreds of templates provided by our three small Los Angeles factories. Most of these templates are very customizable. You can browse the options on the website or come into the store and visit our floor models and take a look at our catalogs. Don’t see exactly what you had in mind?  No problem, we do some replica work as well our standard styles.

2. SIZE TO FIT – Choose the configuration and dimensions for your space.

Almost every piece at Perch is custom to the inch in both length and depth. While not every style looks great in every size or as a sectional we can help you make slight adjustments to suit your space. When the sky is the limit in terms of size it can be very helpful to take some blue painters tape and block out the size of your piece on the floor. This will give us some basic dimensions to work with and help make sure your couch is well scaled to the space.


It is very important to make sure a sofa is comfortable as well as beautiful. At any given time we will have over a dozen floor models to give you an opportunity to try out a variety of different cushion fill and seating geometry options. At this point we will help you integrate your aesthetic and seating preferences to make sure you don’t end up with Frankenstein’s monster.

4. SELECT THE COVER – fabric or leather

We have dozens of fabric and leather option to choose from in a myriad of colors. Most covers are available on most sofas. We can recommend options that will optimize durability based on your lifestyle. If you have already fallen in love with a fabric and want to send it to our factories, no problem at all. We work with Designers and Customers Own Material very successfully.


Last but not least we will help you work out details like leg style and finish, tufting and nail heads.
