Five reasons why Made in Britain means quality

At Whitemeadow, the largest independently owned upholstery manufacturer in the UK, our approach to furniture making is simple. Skilled craftsmen taking pride in building tailored products with high quality finishes following exacting UK standards to support the brands of our loyal customer base.

This simple approach has led us to become one of the most trusted and well-respected upholstery manufacturers in Britain.

What’s our secret?

Well, all our furniture is made here in the UK to meticulous standards, by highly-skilled craftsmen using only the best materials.

So, why does ‘Made in Britain’ mean you’re getting a quality product?


The best quality fabrics

Our team of designers works with expert worldwide suppliers to develop our fabrics and have long established relationships with some of the finest mills in the world.

Most importantly, we buy only from suppliers who we know meet the quality standards you would expect from our products.

From contemporary plains, decadent velvets and custom collections bespoke to Whitemeadow, we leave no stone unturned in sourcing the very best fabric ranges to complement our designs.

The best quality interiors

To ensure the comfort of our furniture matches its good looks, we put the same amount of effort into sourcing our ample range of fillings options, as we do our fabrics and frame components.

All our interiors are supplied to us by long established experts.

We ensure all interiors we use undertake a series of industry standard tests to evaluate performance, flammability and overall suitability for use.

The best quality ethos

We have a great awareness of sustainability, durability and responsible consumerism. We pride ourselves on making our own furniture by hand, from start to finish, in our own Nottinghamshire workshops, creating high-quality products here in Britain while providing skills and employment in the process.


The best quality standards

Our component selection process means that it is not just about presenting a product that looks good, it also means presenting a finished product that really works, whilst always complying with the exacting current British standards.

Fully certified performance and suitability reports, from an independent UKAS accredited laboratory, are always sought and verified before we present a new product to our customers. We are also proud members of The British Furniture Manufactures' Association, a trade body that represents the interests of the the furniture industry in this country. To find out more please visit
