Furniture Manufacturers

A family run business situated in the Yorkshire Dales, the Chesterfield Workshop was founded when Steven Laidlaw, our Managing Director who has considerable experience in the business to business furniture industry, identified a gap in the market for a reliable and consistent supplier of high quality handmade traditional English leather furniture. This requirement has helped us to develop our entire ethos centres around two distinct principles:


Our workshop is managed by a team with over 20 years experience in the hand fabrication of high quality bespoke furniture. What’s more, unlike other so called British furniture makers who often have items created in India, China and South America and only hand-finish their pieces in the UK, every aspect of our furniture’s construction begins and ends in the UK. Each item is constructed with locally sourced, renewable hardwood being used in our frames, feet and exterior wooden detail, full and semi aniline leather hides used in our upholstery, and every aspect of the pieces physical fabrication being performed within our workshop or by locally sourced, specialist suppliers.
