About us

Over 10 years experience delivering beautiful furniture, curtains and interiors

Handmade was established several years ago by Anthony and started life as a small (or we could say tiny) enterprise in Anthony’s shed whilst he also trained as a master upholsterer.  Soon after qualifying handmade moved to it’s first high street shop in Silsden where Anthony built up a local following and a good reputation for great quality and realiable craftsmanship.

Jo joined forces with Anthony in February 2017, having already created her own interior design business. 

Since then handmade has grown to provide a wider range of services including made to measure blinds, curtains, track and poles, soft furnishings and individual accessories for the home.  handmade has also outgrown its modest premises and is now based in Steeton where it enjoys a showroom and adjoining workroom so that customers can see every piece being lovingly created or restored.

To keep up with growing demand we took on our first apprentice, Maisie , who is now being trained by Anthony in traditional upholstery techniques.  Clients often comment how nice it is to see a young lady working in what is typically considered a male-dominated industry.


Anthony Corns

Master upholsterer, Kendal School of Upholstery French polisher and furniture restorer

"Having spent ten years in the army and latterly as a photographer for the German newspapers (yes I speak German too), I decided to move back to my home country with my wife to set up my own business."

"My aim at handmade is to craft each piece of furniture with love and passion and therefore create something of beauty that will last and be enjoyed for generations to come. In my workshop all the work is carried out by hand, ensuring that you get the very best in quality and attention to detail. At handmade you take part in all aspects from frame design and choice of wood colour through to fabric choice, making each piece individual. Then you leave it up to me to create something beautiful for you."

Joanna Berry (goes by Jo)

Interior Designer, Dip Interior Design Member of the Interior Design Institute

"With a background in marketing where I worked in both the North of England and London, and a passion for all things creative, I re-trained as an Interior Designer in 2013 with a view to building a new career. Since then I've been fortunate to have worked on some amazing spaces with some great clients."

"I came across handmade purely by chance having taken an old chair to Anthony to reupholster. Two months later we joined forces providing me with a unique offering for my interior clients; creating bespoke pieces, furniture and soft furnishings for them, something I wouldn't have been able to do without Anthony. I approach design like life, with energy, passion, fun and a dog-eared determination to deliver the very best I can. I'm inspired every day I go to work being in the creative surroundings of the handmade workshop and showroom."

Maisie Allitt

Art & Design, Extended Diploma

"Starting with a Make-Up qualification I decided to change courses and join the Art & Design Extended Diploma course at Craven College.  During my time at the college I covered a number of subjects including Graphic Design, Fashion & Textiles, 3D Design, Fine Art and Photography.  In my second year I specialised in 3D Design and my final project focussed specifically on  installation of discarded furniture pieces (upcycling) which I really enjoyed."

"I knew I wanted to find an apprenticeship scheme and one that enabled me to utilise the skills that I had gathered at college.   As soon as I met Anthony and Jo at handmade I knew that I had found the right place.  I've worked alongside Anthony gaining real insight into the upholstery world and have also assisted Jo with a number of interior schemes.  My skills also stretch to window and showroom dressing too!  I hope that my skills expand with the business and that I become a valued member of the handmade team."
