Yorkshire's Award Winning Upholsterer

With over 10 years’ experience in creating beautifully unique, handmade furniture, curtains and home interiors, It's no surprise that Anthony Corns is known as Yorkshire's Award Winning Upholsterer! 


Back in 2017, Anthony was awarded ‘Best Upholstery Service in the UK’, by interior design company Houzz. This August, he added to his accolades when he received the CorporateLiveWire Leeds & West Yorkshire Prestige Award for ‘Best Upholsterer in the UK’. The judges commended Anthony's ability to create and repair furniture and interiors with the customer’s vision in mind, meaning that every piece is a result not only of quality craftsmanship, but also of thoughtful reflection. Praising his use of traditional upholstery techniques, the judges went on to say how Handmade is a testament to the work of Anthony, describing him as more than somebody who can cover a chair – “he has the hands of a craftsman and the eyes of an artist”.

These awards are a great achievement for anyone, but even more outstanding when you consider that Handmade in the Dales is a one man band which started life as a small enterprise with a little shop in Silsden. As the business took off, customer referrals soon led to a glowing reputation and a need for a larger premises, leading Anthony to move the business to its now prominent spot on Bingley’s vibrant high street. 

Whether you’re looking for inspiration or a finished item to take home that day, the new showroom, with adjoining workroom, offers customers a chance to see Anthony’s work first hand and discover a seemingly endless selection of the finest fabrics and style ideas. Though able to create unique furniture to suit any style of home, Anthony takes design inspiration from traditional shapes and the charming, country farmhouses of the Dales. Keen to support local design houses, he showcases fabrics by UK company Linwood and Abraham Moon in Guiseley, among others. Woollens, tartans, linens and mixed fabrics can all be used in sofa, chair, curtain and blind designs, either alone or in combination. 

From restoration to brand new pieces, Handmade in the Dales offers bespoke furniture and home interiors at competitive prices. Using traditional craftsmanship to create ‘the antiques of tomorrow’, Anthony prides himself on the longevity of his products - the hardwearing, Beechwood and Sycamore frames and quality fabrics made to last. Items so sought after, customers come from across the UK and Europe to design their dream piece of furniture with Anthony.  

If you’re looking to upgrade your furniture, or have an old piece you’d like to give a new lease of life, Handmade in the Dales is the place to go! Welcoming all enquiries, from customers old and new, you’re sure to be treated to a friendly greeting and the very best advice.
