Carlton Furniture has been part of our collection of designer furniture brands since late 2018. We started out by offering a selection of their handmade sofas and chairs, and since then the brand has grown in popularity. Today we offer 100's of their products in our online catalogue. Classically designed, Carlton Furniture has firmly established itself as one of our best-selling brands, so we thought we'd tell you a little more about it.
Handcrafted British Furniture
Established in 1999, Carlton Furniture is a British furniture brand based in Long Eaton, Nottinghamshire. If you think this location sounds familiar, then it likely is! Considered the UK's Centre of Excellence for Upholstery, Long Eaton is also where designer sofa brands Duresta and Parker Knoll are based. Taking great pride in beautifully-made designs, Carlton make and hand-upholster a wide range of furniture pieces suited to classic and contemporary styles of living.
Vintage Sofa Company
Harris Tweed & Leather: A Classic Combination
We couldn't talk about Carlton Furniture without mentioning Vintage Sofa Company. As it's name suggests, Vintage takes a more traditional approach to furniture design. So while Carlton offers contemporary forms and industrial accents, you can expect classic wing chairs, buttoned details, Italian leathers and Harris Tweed upholstery from Vintage. Think of Vintage Sofa Company as a sister to Carlton Furniture, with a distinctly classic presence. You can shop Vintage Sofa Company here.
The Aviator Collection
Industrial Aircraft Style Inspired by the Spitfire
Aviator furniture is characterised by sleek metallic finishes and iconic riveted details, inspired by Spitfire planes of the early 20th century. The Carlton Aviator Collection includes airplane wing desks, egg armchairs, dining tables and sideboards. Designed to make a statement in home offices and dining rooms, the Aviator collection comes in three metallic colours to suit a range of home styles. Jet silver complements the hardware in a modern space, while copper and brass finishes will add depth and a richness to interiors. View the collection here.

Elston & Ellis Chairs
Meet Elston and Ellis. We love these chairs for their elegant proportions and beautiful curves. The Ellis catches the eye with brass castors and a sweeping design, highlighted by Cerato brown leather and studding. Meanwhile, the Elston features a more classic shape, upholstered in Harris Tweed and leather, with piping throughout to match. Their petite size and charming designs make them an ideal occasional seat for use in the hallway, living room or bedroom. Both chairs are upholstered in Hunting Lodge Harris Tweed.
Billy Sheep Wool Chair
Introducing the definition of reclining luxury. The Billy Chair is supremely soft and comfortable. The metal frame is covered with a black sheep wool seat that not only feels sumptuous, but looks beautiful too. It's the perfect accent to your contemporary bedroom or chic living room scheme.
Root Dining Table
It's easy to see why the Root Dining Table is so popular. This rustic and organic style is created using natural teak wood, each with it's own unique shape and markings. No two tables are the same. Beautifully finished, it will add an eye-catching statement to the centre of dining spaces. The glass top makes the table functional, without drawing attention away from the natural beauty of the base.
