Award Winning Harrison Spinks Somnus Beds at The Carriage, Burley in Wharfedale.

2018 has been a great year for Harrison Spinks. In April they received two prestigious Queen’s Awards for Enterprise. The awards for Innovation and International Trade were announced in the 2018 ceremony and resulted in a Royal Visit in August where Harrison Spinks welcomed Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire to its Leeds Headquarters.

Harrison Spinks is the only bed company to have been granted two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise on two occasions. In 2013, they were granted two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise for Innovation and Sustainability.

“The awards are a testament to the hard work and creativity of our team. The Harrison Spinks brand has always been about innovation and quality. We are proud to have brought a number of firsts to the bed industry with our approach to spring technology and our vertical integration – meaning we make almost all the components in our products – sets us apart from our competitors.  Our ambition is to change the way the world sleeps, and we feel that the award for International Trade confirms that we are starting to achieve that goal.”    Simon Spinks, Managing Director

In September Harrison Spinks were awarded Bed Manufacturer of the Year 2018 at the annual NBF Gala Dinner and Bed Industry Awards!

Over the years Harrison Spinks have picked up many awards including; Family business of the year and large manufacturer of the year in 2016 and National Champion 2015/16 at the European Business Awards.

The Somnus range of beds from Harrison Spinks at The Carriage offers a wide choice of beautiful divan beds with a choice of over 30 headboards enabling you to create a luxurious and stylish bedroom whilst enjoying the perfect night’s sleep.

Visiting our bed showroom in Burley in Wharfedale is the best way to find your dream bed or mattress. We have 19 beds from the Somnus range on display in our showroom which is the largest display in the North of England.   The majority of our display is located on the second floor of our showroom so you’ll be able to try as many beds as you like without feeling as though you are being watched from the street.  We’ll give you as much time as you need to find the perfect bed for you.

We’ll talk you through the choice of mattress, headboard and divan storage options and we have fabric swatches on hand for you to create your desired look. We’re just a short drive away from Ilkley, Leeds, Skipton and Harrogate and we think you’ll find making the trip to our store worthwhile!

Once your bed has been chosen, we’ll arrange a mutually convenient delivery day and time. Your new bed will be assembled by our staff and we’ll even take your old bed away if you need us to.
