Harrison Beds Heritage

Harrison History


At Harrison, we’ve been making beds since 1889. In that time we have remained a family business crafting quality beds for more than five generations. The knowledge that we have gained from over 100 years of bed making has made the Harrison name synonymous with hand-made, luxury, pocket-spring mattresses.

These days, we have more than 450 people working with us, from farmers who rear our prize sheep to engineers who develop our award-winning springs and craftsmen who still hand side-stitch our mattresses. 

Some of the ways we make beds today may be different, but our aim is still the same as it always has been: to create a tailored sleeping experience that is second to none. We look to innovate and lead the way by developing the best pocket spring mattresses and have replaced man-made fibres with 100% natural upholstery fillings in order to improve comfort wherever possible, but where traditional techniques remain the best, why change things for the sake of it. You see, when it comes to delivering the perfect night's sleep, we never rest.


In tailor-making a Harrison bed, our most valuable tools are a set of hands. These are not just any hands. These time-honoured techniques have often been passed from generation to generation, resulting in beautiful, bespoke beds that are of the highest quality and represent the bed in British manufacturing.
