Since 1985

Philip Holmes began his journey in the furniture industry at John Flemmings Furniture Ltd and remained there until the age of 27. Concurrently, he indulged in his passion for furniture making, crafting pieces in his garage – a cheeky endeavor indeed!

Inspired by their shared love for furniture and design, Philip and Suzanne, the "better looking half," dreamt of creating a business that would offer quality British manufactured furniture directly to the public and trade. With invaluable guidance from Phil's father, who had a wealth of experience in the upholstery industry at Guy Rogers Furniture, they realized their dream by establishing New England Design in their cherished hometown of Todmorden. Since then, they have been dedicated to delivering exquisite craftsmanship and exceptional furniture to their valued customers.

From Garage to Grandeur: Crafting Excellence, Inspiring Spaces

Throughout the years, the company has experienced remarkable growth and success. Today, we boast a spacious workshop and showroom, strategically located on Todmorden Road, merely a mile away from our humble beginnings. This expansion allows us to continue offering our valued customers an even greater selection of bespoke furniture and interior solutions. Our journey from a small garage operation to a thriving business is a testament to our dedication to quality craftsmanship and customer satisfaction. We are proud to have come this far and look forward to serving our community with passion and excellence for many years to come.

Embracing a New Chapter: Our Home Since 2010

To showcase our ever-expanding ranges and styles of exquisite furniture, we knew we needed more space and the magic of natural light. That's why we made a strategic move to new premises with abundant windows, allowing us to display our collection in all its glory, basking in the glow of daylight. Unlike our previous location, this new space provided the perfect canvas to inspire creativity and elevate the furniture shopping experience.

With the newfound room to breathe, we took the opportunity to diversify our offerings further. In addition to our beloved furniture pieces, we expanded our repertoire to include a stunning selection of curtains and blinds. Now, customers can not only find their dream sofa but also discover the perfect window treatments to complement their living spaces. And as a testament to our commitment to personalized style, we introduced our bespoke interior design service, creating a seamless journey from envisioning to reality for our cherished clientele. Embrace the transformation at New England Design, where every corner exudes the essence of exceptional craftsmanship and elegance. 🪟🛋️🌟
