New workshop and showroom in South Shropshire

After years and years of working in cold, often dark and gloomy workshops, we have finally moved and opened our new one in Craven Arms. It has a large showroom so after much deliberation, we decided to go for it. It has plenty of space for Mark to work which has always been an issue. Mind you I expect he will manage to fill the space!. It has lots of natural light which makes life easier for Mark when working on close detail when upholstering. Above all it is warm and a very pleasant place to work, a good environment for both health and mental well being. 

The opening has been delayed as Mark hasn't been well. He may not be there everyday at the moment, so please do call ahead if you are making a special journey. If the lights are on but the door is locked, please knock. He may be in the back room making a sofa and cannot see the front door. We have furniture restored and re-upholstered for sale in the showroom, and in the storeroom, furniture to be re-upholstered so you can choose the fabric. 

Our new premises are in the old Robert Machin shop on Corvedale Road. This was a furniture shop until the pandemic, so I'd like to think Mr Machin would be happy to see us continuing as a furniture shop, although a different type of furniture to what he sold. He sadly passed away earlier in the year, so not able to see his old premises. Mark first met Mr Machin over 30 years ago when he started working for himself. Mr Machin offered Mark a workroom in the back to upholster furniture as Mark lived not too far away. He didn't take Mr Machin up on the offer but it feels like this has come full circle.

We hope you will visit if you live locally or are in the area. There is free parking right in front of the shop, and a large free car park opposite so very easy for loading. 6 Corvedale Road, Craven Arms. SY7 9NE We look forward to seeing you.
