Buoyant Upholstery

Quality furniture since 1909

Buoyant Upholstery build over a century’s worth of knowledge, experience and quality into every piece of furniture we make. We never stray from the guiding principles that have helped us get to where we are today: making the best products, offering outstanding service and maintaining the keenest prices.

Across every single chair or complete suite, each frame is made meticulously and all fabric is stitched with real care and attention to offer outstanding quality and long-lasting comfort. There is real pride in every piece of furniture bearing our name.

Our own state-of-the-art production facilities, housed in three factories covering an impressive 332,000 sq ft, employ over 600 craftspeople and furniture experts in Nelson, Lancashire. Everything is streamlined and seamless; helping us precisely hit deadlines year-in, year-out and successfully offer all our clients cost-effective solutions.

Although we’re always looking for ways to work smarter, we don’t leave anything to chance. As we always say; ‘The Plan is The Plan’ and we stick to it. It works.

We use the smartest AutoCAD software during the design process and insist on using the finest Baltic birch hardwood (sourced from sustainable forests of course) as our raw material. We don’t favour any of the four different methods of fixing a frame together.

Our secret is to use all of them; meaning each is dowelled, screwed, glued and stapled. Then, there’s the detail: like the way we use 15 springs in a typical 3-seater sofa, rather than the standard 12 and how we’re always looking to innovate and try something new, like using EXTRAFLEX cushioning for the comfiest of finishing touches.
