Quality Standards 1

A Great British Heritage

We're proud to be part of the design and manufacturing industries that have made Britain what it is today. Britain has a long history of leading in these industries and at Middletons we aim to uphold and continue in that great tradition.
Made using the best of British
It's not just our craftsmen that are UK-based. We use only the best British materials wherever possible for furniture of a quality that's a cut above.
Wood

Wood

You wont find low quality MDF or chipboard in our chairs or beds. We use kiln-dried British beech for its inherent strength; a hardwood that's well suited to the stresses and strains placed upon it in everyday use in a rise and recline chair or adjustable bed.

Steel

Steel

British Steel has a global reputation for being strong and reliable, due to the stringent manufacturing process ensuring there are very few impurities. Imported steel is often cheaper and may not be manufactured to the same standard and reliability.

Fabric

Fabric

Our fabric supplier is highly respected in the industry - and it shows. The fabric has a 'four-way stretch', providing not only extra comfort as you relax in your chair, but also durability too; our luxurious fabrics are designed to withstand an 30,000 intense rub test.

Foam

Foam

Our premium quality reflex high-density foam padding ensures our chairs and beds keep their shape and don't sag. Combined with supportive sepantine springs and optional memory foam, you've got an incredibly comfortable chair or bed that's designed to relieve pressure.

Taking care of our people

and our world

Ethical
Standards

These days, it can be hard to know whether what you're buying has been produced in an ethical way that does not take advantage of workers. Where prices are surprisingly low it's often because somebody is paying a price somewhere down the line. British manufacture is bound by strict ethical standards so you can buy with peace of mind regarding the labour involved.

Traditional
Skills

Our furniture is not mass produced in a factory - it's made by hand using time-honoured techniques, by people who take pride in their work. Continuing to hand-craft our furniture in this way ensures these traditional skills are kept alive and well for future generations, and gives our craftsmen not just a job, but a vocation and a well-respected trade they can call their own for life.

The
Environment

When you buy a chair or bed from us you can be sure it has not been flown half-way around the world! The same goes for the British materials we use, such as our kiln-dried Beechwood. And in an era where everything is disposable as people 'buy cheap' and chop and change with trends, investing quality furniture that lasts is both good for the environment and your bank balance.
