Handmade Furniture. Our Story.
The Odd Chair Company and Victoria James are fine furniture makers of classic, contemporary and bespoke furniture in the UK today.
Established over 40 years ago, the family run business prides themselves on making the finest furniture and offering clients an exceptional service. The furniture is made passionately by time served craftsmen at their own workshops in the north west of England.
They offer a design service for both Interior Designers and private clients, produced from your own drawings or maybe just an idea you have. However you wish to send an idea over they can create a unique design for you.
The company also specialises in replicating fine antique upholstery by hand making a chair or sofa from an original design to make an identical pair or a set
All furniture is manufactured at the workshops based at the head office, which also houses the timber workshop and fabric library

What our clients say
A short message to say how pleased we are with the bench seat, extremely comfortable, spacious and stylish. It has already been much praised and admired.
Mr and Mrs K, Perthshire
Sue and James have helped us furnish and design the interiors of our last two houses. Their advice and guidance has been invaluable, providing us with information, ideas and a design service which understood what we wanted (and did not simply tell us what we should do!). Over the years we have also acquired many soft furnishing and items of furniture from the Odd Chair Company, without exception we have been pleased with them. It has been a pleasure to deal with Sue, James and the team – nothing has ever been too much trouble – five stars!
Mr and Mrs R, Yorkshire
We just wanted to say thank you for the furniture you recently made for each of our rooms, we are really pleased with the quality and comfort and the bespoke items look as if they have been with us for years. It was a pleasure doing business with you and your friendly and approachable manner made the project seem effortless, which given it’s size, was very welcome. From the initial design to selection of fabrics, you have been faultless and we appreciate the time and effort you have spent on our home. We would have no hesitation recommending you to our friends who have already been wowed by our new furniture.

Mrs K, Surrey
We feature and recommend The Odd Chair company in the magazine as we are always impressed with their quality and individuality.
Kate French, Homes & Gardens Magazine
My husband and I spent two years converting our 1850 Victorian house into a modern eco-friendly home.
Our vision to capture its traditional character with contemporary furnishings that seamlessly married the old with the new proved challenging until we came across an image of the Lennox Chair.
An elegant interpretation of a timeless classic, it stands proudly in our front reception room. Combining artisan craftsmanship with aesthetic beauty is hallmark to The Odd Chair Company.
Their talented team of hidden designers create more than just beautiful chairs. They delivered solutions throughout every turn of the decorating stage with impressive service and attention to detail.
In the end, every floor of our eco-home is adorned by bespoke pieces of glorious furniture made exclusively by The Odd Chair Company.
