Our design studio and furniture workshops have sat happily in the village of Greenodd for many years, although we’ve always known the day would come when we would have to move on.
Growing a bespoke furniture making company is not for the faint-hearted. It takes patience, hard work and talent, we’ve found! Fortunately, these are all things that our expert cabinetmakers and designers have in buckets; they’re a talented bunch who make a great team, dedicated to making great work.
As the years have rolled by and our portfolio of designs has grown, so too has our number of clients and patrons, leading to a need for more workshop space, bigger showrooms and yet more staff. It’s the greatest accolade we could receive, and we’re thrilled and excited. If, reading this, you’re one of our customers or supporters, just know how much we appreciate you!
Backbarrow, our new home, sits on the banks of the River Leven which flows from the southern tip of Windermere and is already known for the fab Lakeland Motor Museum, housing a unique collection of more than 30,000 motoring related exhibits and an exhibition dedicated to Sir Malcolm Campbell and his son, Donald, and their land and water speed record activities, as well as a lovely café.
At the moment, it’s a hive of industry here, with teams of electricians, joiners and builders transforming what was once a distribution warehouse and offices into a wonderful new space for us all to work, display our designs and host events, exhibitions and welcome visitors.
There will be a new, two storey showroom; kitchens on the ground floor, furniture and works of art on the first. Our design studio has quadrupled in size and we’re creating a purpose built entertainment suite were you can come and relax, have a coffee and get to know us.
If you’d like to drop in, you’re more than welcome and it’d be great to show you around. Our new telephone number is 015395 31140 and, for directions, our postcode is LA12 8TA.
We’re really looking forward to seeing you…
