Proud to be Henderson Russell


A factory with a view

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT LONG EATON: In the 19th century Long Eaton was a thriving industrial town, making much of the Nottingham lace the area was famous for. By the mid 20th century, there was a decline for lace and instead the town saw a rise in upholstery manufacture. This trade has continued to thrive in Long Eaton and the town is now officially recognised as the "UK Centre of Quality Upholstery Manufacture" something Henderson Russell is proud to support.

UK Centre of Quality Upholstery

WHO WE ARE: Since 1992, Henderson Russell has designed and handmade contemporary sofas and chairs that show an apprecitation of line, form and attention to detail. It is our passion. By also making the wooden frames in our factory, you can be confident that all Henderson Russell upholstery is built on solid foundations.
