Chairs Came First

Furniture should be designed to last, after all, it is not an everyday purchase. At the Parker Knoll factory, using quality materials comes as standard, the clever bit is in the assembly. Before you can build any furniture you need a design, once this is in place, patterns are created and models are produced.

Way back in 1921, Willi Knoll had plans to modernise comfort, he developed a revolutionary coiled steel wire spring. These springs transformed the flexibility of the seating, while increasing the comfort by such a big margin. They became an overnight success and the design remains the same to this day, still being widely used. Parker Knoll in 1950 cemented its place in history as one of the best fireside chair producers and incredibly the very same Penshurst chair, remains a firm favourite, even to this day, nearly 70 years on. Success with chairs did not stop there. In 1966 Parker Knoll launched the Cornwell Norton recliner chair, this once again improved comfort, in what was a huge leap forward, increasing their noteriety in furniture even more.

Parker Knoll Production Process

Parker Knoll Presents Quality

Being confident enough to offer a 25 year frame guarantee, proves Parker Knoll have great belief it what they produce. We all know strong foundations are the key to longevity, which is why Parker Knoll only uses carefully selected, quality timbers. This penchant for quality drips through to all the other materials, such as: springs, glues, screws, foams, fibres, fabrics and leathers. Proudly pouring all these wonderful components into every design, to create beautiful furniture that is hand finished by the highly skilled crafters.

Even with their 100,000 sq ft manufacturing base, holding stock in every combination and colour would probably require several more of these vast spaces. Like most bespoke suppliers, the only effective way to manage any form of high volume, while retaining quality with a wide choice of options, is to tailor make each order. This will normally involve allowing extra time for the process to be complete, usually 6-8 wks during non seasonal holiday periods, although from time to time, this can either be shorter or longer, to confirm the latest expected delivery times, please contact Lenleys store team for details.
