Charltons furniture is part of A. J. Charltons & Sons Ltd, which was founded back in 1903.
The company which is based in Somerset has always been in the timber business, it began by hauling timber from the woodlands to the local coal mines, which then naturally progressed into sawmilling timber for other customer’s requirements. Sawmilling has always been at the heart of A.J.Charltons & Sons, sawing mainly hardwoods allowed them to supply some of the top UK furniture manufacturers, from the likes of Ercol, Airsprung, Silent night and the Christie Tyler group. It is from this that our hardwood timber side grew and expanded into producing our own furniture which was sold through our local retail store.
In 1999 they made the change to develop the custom made furniture into something that could be taken to a wider market. With the knowledge from both their cabinetmakers and product sourcing side they developed a range of products that were well designed and well priced and so became Charltons Furniture. At Knights we are delighted to be working with Charltons to make this well designed quality product available to our customers.
The Bretagne living collection is a classic, like all good classics it looks impressive anywhere which is why it remains so popular. The collection comes available with a range of stunning paints, stains and natural finishes. The cabinets have solid oak surrounds with dovetail joints. The table has a synchronised runner system allowing easy opening and internal insert storage, it also has a 40mm solid oak frame and all of the furniture is hand finished in Somerset.
