An inspirational project...

We were delighted to supply the Theda Chair for the House of St Barnabus Club, a not-for-profit members' club for social pioneers, which provides a stepping stone from homelessness to sustained employment by providing work experience.  Click on the image to read more about the project.

Take a seat...

We understand  that you might prefer to try before you buy. Why not come for a coffee in our showroom and take a seat in our chairs and sofas for yourself?  While you are here, we can show you the upholstery options and would be delighted to give you a tour of the workshop.

Each piece of furniture we sell has a mark in the form of a discreetly fixed polished pewter disk that shows that it is an authentic Benchmark original. This is individually numbered and a record of the piece and purchaser is kept in our register.

Peace of Mind

We take pride in all our goods being made to exceptional standards but because things sometimes go wrong, our returns policy states that where a damaged or faulty piece of furniture is delivered, we will do our utmost to rectify the error as quickly as possible. If you are unhappy with your purchase for other reasons, let us know within seven days and we will guarantee a refund providing the item is returned in "as new condition" within 14 days. Unfortunately we are unable to refund shipping, handling or insurance charges, except of course in the case of any errors on our part. Bespoke pieces made to special order cannot be refunded, unless there is a fault with the product.

We are confident that our furniture will stand the test of time and offer a five year guarantee against defective workmanship and materials. However, please note that most of our furniture is made of solid timber, and you should expect it to move slightly in damp or overly dry conditions.

Please note that for pieces that are not made by Benchmark, such as Vienna Chairs and Carl Hansen Chairs, we are only able to offer a one year guarantee against defective workmanship. 

If you would like to chat through the timber, finishes or upholstery options or would like to see samples before you order, please call us on 01488 608020 or e-mail sales@benchmarkfurniture.com 

Care guides

Care Instructions for Upholstered Pieces



The  timber has been oiled with a hard wax oil. To clean, simply wipe with a damp cloth and remove any excess moisture with a dry cloth.


The covers have been fire retardant treated and we would recommend that only companies experienced in the cleaning of furnishing fabrics are used.  However, they can be spot-dry cleaned for small marks. Avoid bleaching agents and optical whiteners. To remove stains the best advice is to treat immediately and not allow the stain to dry in.  For spills, mop up any excess liquid with a clean cloth, or for dry solids,  scoop up with a spoon.
Every fabric will have their own care instructions and if unsure, please check with the manufacturer.  Most stains can be treated with a dry cleaning fluid, upholstery shampoo or clean water. Always work inwards from the edge of the stain to prevent spreading. Do not over wet the fabric but use small amounts of cleaning liquid at a time, blotting between applications. Liquids should never be pushed through the fabric. Continue until the stain has disappeared.


Avoid using chemical polishes or soap.  Simply wipe with a damp cloth using a mild detergent such as washing up liquid and buff with a clean dry cloth.
