Quality & comfort in a chair is guaranteed

When you compare two chairs how do you know which one is better made? Or going to last 10 years not one? How do you know which is the better value for money?
The secret is inside!

The secret to any upholstered piece of furniture is hidden. Yes the fabric may look good but what is really going on inside? With our chairs we make sure there is only one answer to that question and that you do not need to worry.

All of our chairs are hand-made by skilled craftsmen here in the UK. Our chairs are made in Long Eaton, an area with a long-standing worldwide reputation for producing high quality furniture and upholstery.

Our chairs are individually made to order and are not produced on a production line. We use the finest materials available, including kiln dried beech, or birch hardwoods for our hand-built frames. High-gauge tempered steel springs are only used in our seats and foams and fillings are sourced from the industry’s leading suppliers. All fabrics are hand cut and are skilfully pattern matched by eye, irrespective of the amount required to achieve a high quality finish.

Our fabrics are all from well known brands with a reputation for quality and leathers are made from complete hides.

To give you a peep “behind the scenes” you can view the short video that illustrates how one of our chairs is born.


When you visit us at the Occasional Chair Gallery you will avoid, conveyor belt production lines, foreign child labour, containerised shipping from the Far East, cheap webbing rather than springs, MDF or pine rather than hardwood, synthetic or adulterated leather and fabric of dubious provenance. To find out more please take a peek at our Good Chair Guide

The bottom line is that every chair we produce for you will have quality, durability and luxury built in from start to finish.
