About Us

Craftwork Upholstery manufactures contract furniture for care homes, hotels, sports & social clubs, hospitals, student accommodation and mental health facilities around the UK. We operate from a specially designed factory based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. Our large showroom means you can browse our extensive range which includes lounge chairs, dining chairs, bedroom furniture and lounge furniture as well as dining and coffee tables.

All our furniture is manufactured to order so for upholstered furniture you can choose any suitable fabric and select from 6 standard wood stain colours - we can also colour match to your own wood samples. On the bedroom and lounge cabinet furniture you can choose from several wood stains. For large orders we can make bespoke pieces from your drawings or specifications. In the early stages, we can lend out furniture samples and send you fabric and wood samples.

All our furniture is suitable for medium hazard areas as definied by BS 7176.  We use only contract grade CMHR foams and use fabrics which comply with BS 5852 crib5 as standard. We can produce furniture suitable for high hazard areas with crib7 testing if required.

We manufacture to the highest standards using air or kiln dried hardwood and traditional methods which ensure stability and longevity. Polishing is carried out to  BS 6250 severe contract standard and utilises Medicoate lacquer to resist microbial growth and combat infection. 

Our quality system is compliant with ISO 9001:2015. We have tested many of our chairs to BS EN 16139:2013, tables to BS EN 15372:2008 and cabinet furniture to BS EN 16121:2013. Every item of furniture we produce is inspected at each stage of the manufacturing process and again before dispatch.  Each craftsman signs off his work on a quality assurance slip that stays with the product all its life.  A works reference number, on the same slip, provides full traceability.
