John Sankey Furniture:

We are delighted to be collaborating with John Sankey, creators of luxurious, beautifully shaped and finely crafted sofas, chairs and furniture.   

In the 1950’s John Sankey founded an upholstery business, famous for its quality and comfort, based in the heartland of British upholstery; Long Eaton, Derbyshire. Today John Sankey is a family owned business whose ethos is to harness the traditions of the past, update the classics and encourage the next generation by means of their apprenticeship scheme.  

"We can only do what we do because everyone goes the extra mile to deliver the quality and care that we are known for.” This statement resonates very strongly with all we believe at Carnill and Company. Together we can deliver the superlative quality and styling and create upholstered furniture to surpass your expectations.

John Sankey are proud holders of the Manufacturing Guild Mark, awarded for excellence in upholstery manufacture.

The Manufacturing Guild Mark was presented by the Furniture Maker’s Company in recognition of the highest standards in manufacture, covering all areas from design and quality control to employment conditions and sustainability.

C&C upholstery collection:

Every piece of our upholstered furniture is hand made to order, using local expertise and craftsmanship. We have sought out excellent manufacturers and have been able to tap into the rich heritage of furniture making which has existed in Nottinghamshire for generations.When developing the collection, it was our aim to offer great style combined with long lasting comfort.


We have deliberately exaggerated the depth of the seat and also the sumptuousness of the cushion filling to create a piece of furniture that you just want to sink into and relax. This is all supported with solid beech wood frames which are made in Long Eaton, sprung bases and backs and the finest materials used in the interior construction.

We offer both the Classic and Modular Collections in two signature, plain fabrics: a rich plush velvet, and a cotton/linen mix, selected both for their look and durability. We also have a large range of fabric to choose from in addition to the above and should you wish to use a fabric of your own choice, this is also possible. We will quote prices accordingly.

There is also a choice of cushion fillings: 50/50 feather and foam mix and 100% foam to suit your requirement. Lead time is 6 weeks from confirmation of order, at which time a 50% deposit will be required, with the balance payable prior to delivery.

Prices include local delivery. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure items will fit through doors, windows or other access areas.

Classic Range:

The range consists of three sizes of the sofa all derived from one basic shape and style which is a modern take on a classic Regency design. In addition we offer a generously proportioned armchair, a chaise and chaise longue and an ottoman footstool.


All sizes of the sofa are offered in Fixed Back, Cushion Back, and Button Back as illustrated and can be made with either our original Square Arm or traditional Saddle Arm.


We also offer a variety of different leg shapes, colours and options with or without castors.
