Since 1967, we’ve been flying the flag for British craftsmanship with our made-to-measure sofas and chairs, made entirely in beautiful Northumberland.
Manufacturing Guild Mark
When sourcing furniture and furnishings from only the best, choosing a manufacturer which has been awarded the Manufacturing Guild Mark is a good place to start.
The Manufacturing Guild Mark has been the mark of excellence, awarded to Britain’s top furniture manufacturers such as ourselves, since 1993. Simple to say, but not so simple to achieve.
Holders are expected to attain the highest standards in all aspects of business, which is determined by a rigorous independent audit on application and thereafter repeated every three years.
Unlike other Guild Marks, the Manufacturing Guild Mark is awarded to the actual company and not a specific product or product range. It is also only open to those who manufacture most of their products in the UK.
Our mill in Northumberland
The timber for the hardwood frames is selected and cut at our own sawmill in Northumberland – so we can guarantee the quality of the wood before we even start making your sofa or chair. It also means we can make your frame to your precise specifications. If you want your chaise longue a little longer or your high back sofa a little lower, a deeper seat or a wider arm we’ll make it to your exact specification and your complete satisfaction.
British designed & British built
We design all our sofas ourselves, combining classical design history with the best of contemporary styles. In our Northumberland workshop, our highly skilled master craftsmen and women hand-make each piece individually with specialist skills perfected over generations.
Guaranteed to last a lifetime
We cut and build the frames ourselves by hand using techniques passed down through the generations. Nothing is pre-cut or off-the-peg. We believe in doing things properly so your piece of furniture will last a lifetime. That’s why we happily guarantee all our frames for 50 years*.
*Refers to frame only, please see t&c's for more information.
Our highly skilled team
In the beautiful Northumberland countryside, our highly skilled team share our ambition to make sofas of distinction, using specialist skills perfected over generations. Many of our master craftsmen and women have been with us for 20 to 30 years. They stay with us for decades because they take great pride in their work – they love to work with the finest materials and make things of real beauty. Their dedication and experience means they’re proud to put their names to every Delcor piece that leaves the workshop.
Master Upholsterer, Graham Barrass continues to pass on his skills to his son Kane who now works alongside him. Graham is proud of every single piece of furniture he’s made for Delcor over the last 30 years and that the tradition is now passing on to the next generation of his family.
Will it Fit?
It is important to make sure that your new Delcor furniture will fit into your home. This quick guide will help you to work out if your furniture will fit into your room via doors, hallways and stairs.
If it does not fit, then don’t worry - all of our furniture is custom made and for a nominal charge is able to come apart and be assembled on-site by our qualified delivery team.
Firstly, note down the length, depth and height of your furniture. This information can be found on the product pages of our website.
Let's start at the front door. Open the door as wide as possible and measure the distance between the outer edge of the door to the inner edge of your doorframe at its narrowest point.
Compare the width of your doorframe with the height of your item allowing a little wiggle room on either side. This will determine if we can take the item through on its side. If the door width is greater than the height of your item, then it will fit through.
If the width of your front door is too narrow, then our delivery team can try to bring your item through upright. In this case, measure the height of your doorway making sure that it is greater than your item width. Again, check that there is some wiggle room.
If it does not fit give us a call as we can take off the legs or look at alternatives such as taking your furniture apart and assembling it on-site.
We need to make sure your furniture can get into the room that you’d like it to sit in. Measure the width of any areas that the item must pass through, such as hallways and internal doors at their narrowest points.
Remember to take note of possible obstructions such as radiators, shelving, skirting boards and light fittings. As long as the width at the narrowest point is greater than the height of your item, then your furniture will fit.
If your furniture needs to go up any stairs, measure the width of the staircase at its narrowest point. Remember to take any handrails or light fixtures into account. If this distance is wider than the height of your item then it should fit.
If you have a bannister and the furniture needs to be lifted over it, check that the distance between the bannister and the ceiling is greater than the depth of the item. Once at the top of the stairs, make sure there is enough room on the landing for our delivery team to manoeuvre your item into your chosen room.
If you have any questions please give us a call or pop into one of our showrooms, we would be happy to help.
The final part of the Delcor experience is delivery. We understand the importance of and respect that is required when delivering to your home – that’s why we do it ourselves. All our deliveries and installations are carried out by our own trained delivery teams using our own vehicles.
We will call you 7 to 14 days prior to your delivery to discuss the exact dates. At that time, we can talk about an am or pm delivery. You can change your delivery slot at any time but this may affect when the next delivery slot will be available.
On the day we will give you a call one hour before your delivery is due. We will remove and packaging and ensure the room is left just as we found it. Please ensure that the room is ready and the space for your new piece of furniture is ready. Unfortunately, we cannot remove any old furniture due to health and safety.
