Buoyant Upholstery was founded by Ebenezer Savidge in 1909, and are a company with a proud heritage developing numerous sofas and chairs since the start of the 20th Century. Currently, Buoyant's two production plants deliver to a broad range of retailers in the UK and Ireland.

Originally Buoyant were located in Bridge Street, Sandiacre, near Nottingham until relocation in 1973 to the current factory in Hallam Road, Nelson, near Pendle Hill which is famous for it's association with witchcraft! In March 1999, Buoyant was acquired by the Wade Furniture Group of Long Eaton, near Nottingham.

Kenneth and the Buoyant logo

So who is Kenneth? Kenneth is the name given to the Buoyant logo which comprises a rather long-legged man reclining in a comfortable chair. The logo was named after Kenneth Savidge (born in 1921) who was the third son of the company founder, Ebenezer Savidge. Sadly Ebenezer died in 1934 when Kenneth was too young to join the company but his name lived on in the logo. Early advertisements are believed to have featured the line "Kenneth, get out of your seat and let your father sit down". During the 30's, 40's and 50's Kenneth regularly appeared in adverts extolling the virtues of Buoyant.

The history of Buoyant

Buoyant Heritage - In the last century, Buoyant developed a wide range of products for consumers, cinemas, theatres, bars, hotels, trains, Selfridges and even Cross Channel Steamers!
Products in the last century: Wood & fabric chairs, lounge bed, settees, armchairs, stools, mattresses, bar seats, cinema seats, train seats, bed settees.

In November 1933, Buoyant developed a new product which was known as a bed settee. It was advertised in “The Cabinet Maker and Complete House Furniture” magazine. According to the magazine, the dual purpose settee was of a perfect structural design that was very easy to convert into a double bed fit for two, yet comfortable to sit in when it reverts back to a settee.

In February 1936, Buoyant advertised in “The Cabinet Maker and Complete House Furniture” to tell people that 1,250 easy chairs and other upholstery pieces were made for the Cunard White Star Line, RMS Queen Mary. It was also featured in the “Shipbuilding and Shipping Record” magazine around May of the same year. In addition Buoyant helped to re-equip the RMS Queen Elizabeth with big easy chairs for the saloons, settees for the lounges and bergères for the cabins. Then on 18th January 1940 during the 2nd World War we had a disastrous fire in the factory at Bridge Street, Sandiacre. Sadly, 2 people died in the fire and production was halted for several weeks. Buoyant have appeared in regular advertising campaigns in the past through national newspapers such as The Daily Telegraph and The Daily Mail culminating in a feature in the Daily Express in November 1955. It was the biggest national campaign we had done since the Second World War.
