Repose Henley

The Henley combines Repose's popular waterfall backrest with knuckle armrests to provide the ultimate in comfort and convenience. UK made, each Henley is fully made to measure to provide you with a perfect fit, and can come with your choice of motor mechanism and fabric.

Product Description

The Henley features Repose's best-selling waterfall back with a wooden knuckle armrest design that provides a steadier grip, particularly when standing or seating yourself. The arm knuckles are available in a choice of light or dark wood to complement your upholstery choice.


Repose are a second-generation family run UK business specialising in bespoke made to order furniture, handcrafted in the Midlands. They offer a wide choice of cushioning, including pressure relieving options, as well as a selection of motor mechanisms to ensure your chair suits you. Their furniture comes with a two year warranty, with the option to upgrade to a five year care plan.

Made to Measure

Each Henley is made to measure - it is available with seat heights of 14 - 21", widths of 16 - 28", and depths of 16 - 22". Adjustments can also be made to back heights and arm heights. This allows us to provide you with a chair that fits perfectly - vital for a chair you could spend several hours of the day seated in.


The Henley can be fitted with the following motor mechanisms:

  • Single Motor Tilt in Space

  • Dual Motor Tilt in Space

  • Standard Dual Motor

  • Single Motor Wallhugger

  • Single Motor Non-Wallhugger (Three Way)

  • VAL - Variable Angle Lift technology

This ensures that your Henley can provide the seating functions you require, whether that be lying back with your legs raised or assistance with standing. The wallhugger option allows those with limited space to benefit from a rise and recliner chair.


Repose use only the best quality fabrics, and each chair is handcrafted to match seamlessly with your décor and style. Fabrics are sourced from reputable upholstery mills, and there are hundreds of finishes and colours available to choose from. Sustainably produced leather upholstery using centuries-old Italian craftmanship practices is also available. We hold full colour and fabric swatches to help you choose.


A range of seating materials are available to maximise your comfort, or provide pressure relief if required. These include foams, pocket sprung seating and gel cushioning to ensure we can always match you with the appropriate seating.

Comfort and convenience accessories including head pillows and rolls, arm caps, and seat covers can be fitted too. Finally, a range of practical upgrades are available, including the Relaxor heat and massage system, a reading lamp, and USB charger.

Complementary furniture

A selection of complementary furniture can be supplied alongside your Henley, including two and three-seater sofas, static chairs and a footstool.
