We are a small family run business based near the market town of Thirsk in North Yorkshire. Carthouse Furniture was established in 1995, and moved to our current premises in Carlton Miniott in 2003. There we have our workshop and showroom, and every piece of furniture is made by us on site. We also have a luxury holiday cottage on site named Landrace Cottage.
We make furniture in the local tradition of hardwood furniture manufacturing. We specialise in the use of oak, but other hardwoods can be sourced if needed. We are very careful in our selection of timber to get the most attractive parts of the tree to the outside of the cabinet, where they have a big impact on the appearance of the finished piece. We use traditional construction and jointing techniques, such as mortise and tenon joints for cabinets, chairs, and table frames, and dovetail joints for drawers. These methods of furniture construction have been used for thousands of years, and result in very high quality furniture; timelessly attractive, which can stand up to generations of use.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our furniture, and also the fair prices we offer to our customers. We treat everyone equally regardless of order size, and the majority of our work is repeat business from happy customers.
