About Us

Buoyant Upholstery build over a century’s worth of knowledge, experience and quality into every piece of furniture we make. We never stray from the guiding principles that have helped us get to where we are today: making the best products, offering outstanding service and maintaining the keenest prices. We are committed members of the British Furniture Manufacturers Association and we’ve always given 100% support to the Great British Furniture campaign.

We also have exciting plans and challenging ambitions of our own. In 2013 Mike Aramayo, MD, led an MBO of the business from the Wade Group with the help of our committed investors (NVM Venture Capital). We have a clear vision: to grow and grow by building mutually profitable relationships with retailers, suppliers and delighting our loyal customers. If your business would like to be part of our success story, we’d love to hear from you…


From reassuringly traditional favourites to bold, modern fashion statements, our range is designed to offer something for everyone to maximise its sales potential. Across every single chair or complete suite, each frame is made meticulously and all fabric is stitched with real care and attention to offer outstanding quality and long-lasting comfort. There is real pride in every piece of furniture bearing our name.


Fashions come and go; but quality and comfort are always a priority for every customer. So our design team combine an exceptional understanding of the practical along with an exciting flair for the creative – adding a splash of colour or an inspired twist on a classic blueprint to keep our range fresh and constantly evolving. Different textures, exciting trends… we’re always one step ahead of the competition.


More efficient. More proficient. Leading through innovation. Our own state-of-the-art production facilities, housed in two adjacent factories covering an impressive 332,000 sq ft, employ over 600 craftspeople and furniture experts in Nelson, Lancashire. Everything is streamlined and seamless; helping us precisely hit deadlines year-in, year-out and successfully offer all our clients cost-effective solutions. Although we’re always looking for ways to work smarter, we don’t leave anything to chance. As we always say; ‘The Plan is The Plan’ and we stick to it. It works.


We have a certain ‘Buoyant way of working’ that’s all about exceeding expectations, and always creating comfort. We start by using the smartest AutoCAD software during the design process and insisting on using the finest Baltic birch hardwood (sourced from sustainable forests of course) as our raw material. We don’t favour any of the four different methods of fixing a frame together. Our secret is to use all of them; meaning each is dowelled, screwed, glued and stapled. Then, there’s the detail: like the way we use 15 springs in a typical 3-seater sofa, rather than the standard 12 and how we’re always looking to innovate and try something new, like using EXTRAFLEX cushioning for the comfiest of finishing touches.


We’re already one of the largest sofa manufacturers in the country, but we’ve got big plans for the future. So we’re always interested in talking to people who are as ambitious and committed to delivering quality as we are. From manufacturing to marketing, from design to sales, we want the very best people. Have you got the drive and determination we’re looking for?
