Also offered is the first ever range of Sherborne Adjustable Beds with a 25 stone weight limit and a 5 Year Guarantee.

Sherborne has grown from a small family business into one of the most successful upholstery companies in the United Kingdom with two factories and over 250 employees.

Starting over 80 years ago in a small lock-up garage in Sherborne Road, Bradford, Sherborne grew to become a Limited Company in 1953 and after four moves to larger premises established itself at its current main factory in Clayton, Bradford ten years later.

Building no fewer than seven major factory extensions it also operates from a substantial warehouse and factory at Queensbury, Bradford just a short distance away.

The Environment

As a furniture manufacturer Sherborne take environmental issues extremely seriously and the Sherborne Environment Policy is far-reaching in its positive impact.

Firstly, they ensure that all the timber purchased is PEFC-certified (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) and that all the MDF, chipboard and hardboard materials have full FSC certification (Forest Stewardship Council). This means that only fully sustainable, renewable sources are ever used.

Then several environmental initiatives have reduced the use of energy and therefore carbon footprint in recent years:

A wood recycling system provides much of the heating for Sherborne main factory and eliminates the need for landfill disposal of wood waste
Solar panels installed in 2012 generate much of Sherborne`s own electricity and send surplus energy back to the National Grid
An Energy Management System reduces overall usage of both gas and electricity in both factories
A programme of installing low-energy lighting has been completed to reduce the electricity usage even further

And finally, remember that by buying British-made furniture eliminates the considerable environmental impact of importing large, bulky items from overseas.

Design Advantages

At Sherborne they pay particular attention to designing both comfort and support into any piece we produce. Sherborne concentrate especially on providing ample lumbar support for the lower back and thigh support for the backs of the legs. They also ensure that all Recliners have backs high enough to fully support the head when used in all the recline positions.

The Perfect Fit?

Because finding the right size of Recliner is so important to your comfort Sherborne now offer five  popular Recliners in a choice of three different sizes. So if you choose a Lynton, a Lynton Knuckled version, a Malvern, a Keswick or a Comfi-sit there should be a size to fit - see the range of Keswick sizes below, for example.

Manual Recliner Chairs & Settees:

All Manual Recliner Chairs & Settees use a superbly smooth Recliner action - Sherborne believe the easiest by far to operate - which can be positioned with the minimum of effort into any one of a near-infinite number of comfortable recline positions. It also includes the latest in 'zero wall' technology, which means that you can place the upright Recliner or Settee almost up against a wall and still fully recline it without hitting the wall.

Another advantage is that all Manual Recliner Chairs & Settees are offered with a choice of finger-release catch or large handle to open up the mechanism. Either can be requested for left-handed use if you so wish.

Powered Recliner Chairs & Settees:

For the ultimate in effortless reclining comfort all Manual Recliners and Reclining Settees are also offered in fully Powered versions. These are powered by a two-button switch conveniently fitted to the outside arm. The switch can also be requested for left-handed use where required.

All Powered Reclining Chairs and Settees are also available as Rechargeable versions, removing the need to leave a cable running to the wall socket. These also move through all positions from within 10cm (4") from the wall.

Reclining Settees:

For ease of delivery all Reclining Settees are supplied in separate sections with lift-off backs (ends only of 3-Seaters).

Personal Sherborne 5 Year Guarantee:

As we only use the highest quality mechanisms from world-leading component manufacturers, all Recliner actions carry a 5 YEAR GUARANTEE and all electric motors, all remaining electrical parts and all Recliner frames also carry a PERSONAL SHERBORNE 5 YEAR GUARANTEE. See 5 Year Guarantee panel opposite.

Glides:

For solid flooring you can choose GLIDES as an alternative to castors. These can be supplied on all Reclining Chairs and Settees, including Electric 'Lift & Rise' Care Recliners, and all other other models usually supplied on castors. Also available on all Adjustable Beds.

The superb range of Electric 'Lift & Rise' Care Recliners offers these outstanding advantages:

Because finding the right size of Recliner is essential to your comfort we now offer five  popular designs in a choice of four different sizes and one further design in three different sizes. So if you choose a Lynton, a Lynton Knuckled version, a Malvern, a Keswick, a Windsor or a Comfi-sit there should be a size to fit - see the range of Lynton Knuckle sizes below, for example
56 models to choose from, all with fully lifting & fully reclining actions
Choice of Dual motor and Single motor designs
All Dual motor designs have an 'intelligent' fifth button on the handset which takes the back up and the feet down in unison in order to return to the sitting position from any reclined angle with the minimum of effort. It also lowers the Chair to the sitting position from any raised angle
All Dual motor designs enable the backrest and footrest to be operated independently to obtain the exact recline or seating angle you feel most comfortable in, including an amazingly low, near-horizontal fully reclined angle which is ideal for sleeping (needs a 38cm (15") gap from the wall)
All Single motor designs use an easy three-button handset which enables the footrest to be fully raised before the back starts reclining. They also allow the full sleeping position to be reached (less reclined than on Dual motor designs) from a starting point 20cm (8") from the wall
A quick-release handset is fitted as standard to prevent unauthorised use. A small, unobtrusive on/off switch is also fitted to the back of the handset
Single-use Emergency Back-up fitted as standard and highly-recommended Multi-use Battery Back-up available on all designs (at extra cost)
All designs are fitted with a spring-loaded footrest to reduce the risk of accidental entrapment under the footrest
All handsets have a special safety button design to reduce the possibility of inadvertent movement of the action
For ease of use even in the dark all handset buttons light up when operated
Each handset is fitted with a useful clip which can be removed if required
The transformer displays a green LED power light to show that power is reaching the Recliner
Choice of all 56 models with easy, lift-off backs to make the task of delivering the Recliner into your home so much easier
Overall weight limit 160kg (25 stone)
All designs are normally fitted with four castors for ease of movement, and the front castors then lift away to ensure full stability when the Recliner is lifted into any raised position
Alternatively four glides can now be fitted for use on solid flooring
Choice of 56 models with full 'chaise' seating for the optimum leg comfort and support
All designs on this website have a generous side pocket for neatly storing the handset and putting in newspapers, etc. This can be specified for left-handed use if you so wish
