Why buy British-made furniture?
British furniture manufacture has a history spanning hundreds of years. If you're looking for new furniture, we recommend you buy British-made and here's why:
Better for the environment
Since air transport, a significant contributor to global warming is not necessary when you buy British furniture; you'll be doing your bit to help the world's carbon footprint.
Buying closer to home ensures that you'll receive your new furniture quicker than if it was coming from abroad. When you've chosen your dream sofa or bed, why would you want to wait to enjoy it?
Many British furniture manufacturers use time-honoured techniques that have often been passed from generation to generation: the result - furniture of the highest quality that has been made to last.
British manufacture is ethically sound. Furniture factories are bound by strict UK and EU legislation which protects their workers and means you can buy with a clear conscience.
Variety of choice
The British furniture industry is amazingly diverse. From traditional to contemporary and low-cost to high-end, British furniture offers something for everyone.
Good for the local economy
Buying British helps our economy. Supporting regional brands creates jobs and puts money back into our local communities.
