Quality Assurance

Our quality Is assured

We are proud to have created a diverse portfolio of bespoke occasional chairs, any one of which should deserve pride of place in your home. Whether you are looking for a wing chair, an easy chair, lounge chair or club chair, we have a design for you. Well make your design a reality and you'll have a unique and long-lasting statement in your home. With The Occasional Chair Gallery quality is assured.

What we do for you

We offer a totally personalised service, making occasional chairs to the very highest specification using traditionally glued, screwed and dowelled solid hardwood frames. You can order chairs via this website by selecting a chair and matching it to one of our Designer Choice fabrics.

Alternatively if you want total control we can supply a huge variety of other fabrics (far too many to illustrate here!). All you need to do is use our totally bespoke service.

You can always try out a selection of chairs on display in our shop in Dunnington on the outskirts of the City of York.

Hand made in Britain

Every chair is unique and made to your requirements and can be covered in any fabric suitable for upholstery use. Our covers are cut and matched by hand and then expertly joined and sewn ensuring each panel of fabric blends effortlessly into the next with all valances attached using the traditional method of hand slip stitching.

Our occasional chairs are all hand made by skilled craftspeople working in Long Eaton, the capital of the British furniture industry.

Bespoke design

If you cannot find the fabric you want amongst our current Designer’s Choice then our Bespoke Service may be for you. We can upholster your chair in the fabric of your choice from our collection of over 5000 designs, or we can work with any suitable fabric that you supply. We take care of all arrangements to ensure that your furniture meets UK fire safety legislation.

We deliver

Once your chair is finished you can collect from our York shop or we can arrange delivery throughout mainland UK. If you are furnishing a home overseas we would be keen to discuss suitable arrangements.

Our aim is to offer quality, comfort and service of the very highest level to all our customers and we hope this portfolio will inspire you to choose your chairs from The Occasional Chair Gallery for your home.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask us.
