Whitemeadow is the largest independently owned upholstery manufacturer in Britain today, producing a wide range of sofas and upholstered bed frames for many of the country’s blue-chip high-street brands and premium independent retailers. Situated in the heart of the upholstery manufacturing centre of the UK, Whitemeadow began in 1994, handcrafting products in our Nottinghamshire factory. Fast forward to today and we’re proud to maintain our commitment to craftmanship, now on a much larger scale. As a major employer in the local area, we currently employ over 500 colleagues over 6 sites, all within a 2-mile radius which totals over 200,000 ft2 of manufacturing space. Focussing on design leadership, an efficient production process and attention to quality, we have grown to become one of Britain’s leading upholstery manufacturers.

Whitemeadow Managing Director said: “We are delighted to have been included once again by the London Stock Exchange Group as one of the 1000 companies to inspire Britain.
Given the political confusion surrounding the UK, we are proud to be flying a small flag for British, and in particular Upholstery, manufacturing which in times of such uncertainty faces many challenges. Our fantastic team continue to navigate these difficulties with great skill, ability and enthusiasm and I am extremely proud of everyone for their contribution in helping the business achieve this accolade”.
