1. Our furniture has amazing guarantees

We are so confident in the quality of our furniture that we guarantee our Old Charm Collection for life. Our other collections also come with great guarantees too!

2. We use character oak

Character oak features beautiful knots and grain patterns that really show off the wood. It also means that every piece of Old Charm looks different.

3. Our finishing goes through 8 stages

To get our distinctive finish the process includes staining, sanding, sealing, spraying and waxing.

4. Our hardwood chair frames are dowelled, screwed and glued

The quality expected from our cabinet is also found in our upholstery. For maximum strength, the frames of our upholstery models are double or triple dowelled, screwed and glued, so they’re not going anywhere!

5. We still use traditional techniques

In our cabinet collections we still use mortise and tenon joints and dovetail joints. These tried and tested joints are strong and have withstood the test of time – mortise and tenon joints date back around 7,000 years!

6. We have over 120 fabrics to choose from

There is choice aplenty in our fabric swatches! We also have active collaborations with Abraham Moon and Harris Tweed to add 100% wools to the selection. Choose from [tooltips keyword=”plains” content=”<img src=’https://i.pinimg.com/originals/aa/18/b3/aa18b3505c389890ed6e6ac8d6ea3338.jpg‘>”], patterns, stripes, tartans and more. If you still can’t find anything you like…

7.  We offer a Customer’s Own Material service

If you’ve found a fabric you love that we don’t have in our swatches, don’t panic! We can put a fabric of your choice onto our upholstery designs! For full terms and conditions click here.

8. Our fabrics exceed expectations

Domestic fabrics need to withstand a minimum of 15,000 rubs. We choose fabrics with 18,000 and above to ensure they are hardwearing yet comfortable.

9. We can refurbish old pieces

If your furniture has seen better days, we can bring it back to our factory to give it a new lease of life! From reupholstering dining chairs to a complete strip and repolish of a piece, we can make your old furniture look as good as new! Full details here.

10. We give outstanding customer service

Ok, this isn’t really about the furniture but we just had to tell you again! Our customer service is second to none, and has been recognised by Feefo who bestowed upon us their Gold Trusted Service Award!
