Robert Dyrga – Sofa Fox

Are you sitting comfortably? Then, the boss of Sofa Fox, will begin…

Robert Dyrga, his partner, Goska, and their son, Julian, are a family that has fallen in love with Hammersmith and the English countryside.

Q. When did you move to the UK?

I came from my native Poland just after it joined the EU. I’m from a small city called Zywiec in the mountains in the South of Poland. I was 25 and came here looking for adventure and also to get away from my parents! I’m the youngest of three children and the only one to leave Poland. I’m the black sheep of the family for leaving. At first there was lots of crying, ‘Come back, come back, oh no… you are on your own there in the UK. Come back to Poland’. They were crying at the beginning but now they are fine. They are used to it. My plan was to come here for three months then go back. I’ve now been here 11 years.

Q. Why did you choose Hammersmith?

It’s really friendly. Especially here in Brackenbury Village. It’s a quiet spot outside of the mainstream of London. I don’t like crowds. We’ve got a hairdresser next door and a butcher. I like the demographic. If you go to other parts of London it’s not as nice. Everybody talks to everyone else here. We love it.

Q. What is Sofa Fox?

I buy top quality sofas and sofa beds from across Europe. I spend months visiting and researching factories to ensure the quality is consistent throughout. All our sofas are made with high-density foam that keeps its shape. If we have what you are looking for in stock we can deliver in three days. If it isn’t stocked then it takes up to four weeks to get to your home. Many sofas are modular, offering many possibilites. Installlation is free. I am currently introducing stain reesistant fabrics.

Q. So, what do you and your family do in your spare time?

We like camping, and tents. We go to Wales and the Lake District, as well as exploring other parts of Britain. Living in Hammersmith means it is easy to visit the West of England, and Wales and get away. We have the M4 and the M25 very nearby. We love it here in Britain. It’s beautiful. Summer is nearly here and we can’t wait to go camping. We also love skiing together in France in the winter.

Q. If you had to leave the UK what would you miss the most?

Our friends mainly, and camping. We love camping in Wales and the Lake District, and exploring other parts of Britain. It’s beautiful.
