Proud & Passionate In Preston

From humble beginnings over 60 years ago, Plumbs has established itself as a true gem in the local community, going from strength to strength as it adapts to customers’ desires and changes within the soft furnishings market

It is quite astounding to believe that one advert placed by Geoff Plumb in a local newspaper in 1968 would have turned out to be such a fundamental turning point in Plumbs’ future. The family business, now in its fourth generation has a team that is totally passionate and committed, with a huge amount of experience to deliver products and customer service way beyond people’s expectations.

Key markets include reupholstery, loose covers and made to measure curtains, each of which have seen a major resurgence over recent years. The launch of their new brand Fable and Plumb, their own bespoke furniture brand, sees further advancements for the business. Handmade in British workshops, the bespoke range allows customers to create unique sofas for life with everyday covers for living.

Family member Emma Singleton, who loves talking to customers and manages the showroom, comments: “An increasing number of people are seeing the value of investing in furniture they love, whether that’s traditional family pieces or contemporary settees or chairs.”

Reupholstery provides the perfect way to revive much loved furniture without compromising on the comfort and style of the original design. With the expertise of traditional craftspeople the furniture will be stripped back to its original state, reviving the stunning features you originally fell in love with.

The vast array of loose cover choices means you can choose from neutral or strong colours, go plain or select from an array of patterns and florals. Being able to wash the covers means they’re easy to maintain, especially for those with pets and children, and you can choose to change them if you want to keep up to date with the latest trends in furnishings.

Utilising their knowledge and expertise in the furnishings industry, Plumbs’ own-brand Fable and Plumb, sees the company creating bespoke furniture using high quality FSC hardwood frames, which are guaranteed for 15 years – this expanding range has something to suit everyone with 400 fabrics from which to choose. The covers are hand made by skilled cutters and sewers to ensure quality and longevity.

You can view the unique furniture as well as many of the gorgeous fabrics in the stunning showroom. The moment you walk in you will feel the calm and warm atmosphere and are welcomed by a fabulously friendly team who use their expertise and knowledge to advise you. There is something for everybody, whatever your budget might be.

Emma concludes: “We are totally committed to delivering a passionate and professional service to all of our customers, ensuring high quality products and an unrivalled friendly and knowledgeable service.”

Call into the beautiful showroom or visit the website to see the stunning range of sofa covers, furniture and curtains. We know you’ll be blown away by the impressive range.
