Here’s a bit more of the nitty gritty.

The Cavendish mission statement is to supply high quality, comfortable and value-for-money furniture that exceeds the customer’s expectation – first time, every time.

Using only the finest materials, we are proud to produce sofas that not only look great but are safe and durable. We batch test all our fabrics for FR compliance and our frames carry an impressive 10 year guarantee, based on our rigorous destruction testing.

We pride ourselves on producing a high quality, comfortable and ‘fit for purpose’ product. If, in the unlikely event that you need any assistance, we will deal with it promptly and efficiently, and if we are at fault, we will ensure that you get a new sofa free of charge, with no quibble.

A little history lesson


Starting in the 1970s, Cavendish began life at the old Cowling Mill in Chorley Lancashire. Established by John Henscher, with only a handful of skilled craftsmen and artisans, he started the legacy we have today.

In 1987 we became a part of the Airsprung family, the senior furniture group in the UK with over 140 years trading to its name.

Fast forward to today and the company has grown to its current size, with some of the leading British retailers as customers. We pride ourselves on being a part of British Furniture Manufacturers (BFM). We are honoured to be a member of FIRA, the leading British furniture industry research and testing facility, which ensures that all of our furniture meets and often exceeds the UK’s stringent fire safety regulations.

The future is bright for Cavendish Upholstery with our design and development teams working constantly to provide the very best in comfort and style for your home.
