We know our clients are connoisseurs of style and taste which is why we are always seeking to add to their experience with us. When we opened our store, we wanted it to feel like an experience, we added a variety of pieces by great British design talent to add warmth and character. From dramatic light fittings to tactile fabrics and beautiful cushions, our customers found a range of products for their home which they couldn't find on their High Street. But this experience couldn't be translated online, therefore, we needed to find a way of offering an extended experience to you. A favourite of our Nottingham clients we knew that there was one company with whose collaboration we could make it work, whose products were elegant yet had that contemporary edge to suit a variety of trends and homes.

With their scrumptious range of fabrics that make you want to reach out and touch them and inviting shapes and angles that seem to draw you into their lair, we know that they are hard to resist. But who are Henderson Russell? They are based in one of the 19th century's thriving industrial towns, Long Eaton, famous for making much for Nottingham's lace. Sadly there was a decline for lace by the mid 20th century and a new era of manufacturing emerged which remains to this day. It's legacy is now for upholstery as Long Eaton has been officially recognised as the 'UK Centre of Quality Upholstery Manufacture.' [caption id="attachment_6471" align="aligncenter" width="620"]Edmund, From £670[/caption] With such a rich upholstery heritage it's no wonder that Henderson Russell chose this are as their home back in 1992. Just like at Eat Sleep Live, each piece is built by hand, using traditional methods and the highest levels of craftsmanship. They scour the globe to source a range of beautiful fabrics to enable you to create your perfect piece that will stand the test of time. It's no good just having beautiful fabrics, they also need to be practical, which is why all their fabrics are family friendly and vigorously tested to ensure they are up to the job of being used in your home. One of the things that drew us to Henderson Russell was their ethical approach, they only use the finest materials from sustainable sources and like to buy from local suppliers where possible.
