At Vale Bridgecraft we've been making quality sofas and chairs in our workshops in West Yorkshire for over 100 years. This area is famous for its skills in joinery and textiles and has a long established heritage in furniture making. Vale Bridgecraft today reflects 146 years of quality furniture manufacturing and, as in the past, means people passionate about upholstery, determined to offer the kind of special quality that remains (as the old saying goes) hard to define but easy to recognise. Vale Upholstery was established in the West Riding of Yorkshire in 1947 by a Mr & Mrs Lomax who worked originally under Utility restrictions, re-covering furniture and then creating their own simple pieces. The business was based in Vale Mill, Todmorden, the location giving the company its name. The couple grew the business drawing from the long established craftsman skills in joinery and textiles that the region is famous for as well as a heritage of fine furniture making.
