Get Your Bespoke and Reupholster Orders In Soon!

Jingle bells…jingle bells… jingle all the way…

Forgive us; the team at Martin & Parker are well aware that it’s only October but when you run a business such as ours, you need to plan ahead early.

The yuletide season is an exceptionally busy time of year for our workshop and showroom as people gear up to entertain friends and family over the coming festivities. While we fully encourage people to take their time when choosing new furniture, we are a little stretched for time when it comes to our reupholstery and bespoke handmade furniture service.

Simply put, if you are considering bringing a beloved piece of furniture back to life or having bespoke furniture crafted anew, then invest in Martin & Parker’s services as soon as possible!

For an example of our work from previous years, please take a look at the images below…

Busy Days Abound

new productWell then, plenty of news ahead from the team at Martin & Parker as we approach a new milestone in our business history. First of all we are delighted to announce that April 2015 marks the 35th anniversary since we first opened our sofa factory way back in 1980. It’s been a long old road to get where we are today so we’d like to thank each and every one of you for supporting us and keeping us busy all these years.

It wouldn’t be a proper anniversary without a party so please keep an eye out on Facebook for the all important dates. If the idea of celebrating a local furniture company’s birthday sounds a little dry to you then dare we mention there will be wine and nibbles? Customers new and old are welcome and feel free to bring your furniture adoring companions.

martin & parkerSecond on the agenda is the much anticipated redecoration of our Derby showroom. We have an ambitious new floor plan to roll out in the coming weeks which will include the creation of fourteen new room settings. Each room will offer a different aesthetic vision of what you can achieve with our wallpapers as well as providing a showcase for our new fabrics and sofa designs. Look out for the ‘New Product’ signs placed around the showroom for your convenience.

Last but not least we are delighted to say that all our hard work in February remodelling ‘The Cooper’s Arms’ in Weston-on-Trent has paid off. It was an incredibly rewarding job for us and as one of our finest local pubs we couldn’t have been happier to help. It seems Amy from the pub is pleased too, leaving some kind words about our work…

“I would like to thank you all for doing such a fantastic job on all of our furniture, I couldn’t be happier! The service we received has also been fabulous- thank you so much for all your help.”

Be sure to check out further images of the overhaul on Pinterest!

Need Help Recycling Old Furniture?

recycle

One of our key New Year resolutions here at Martin & Parker is to raise awareness about our green initiative. It’s all well and good to recycle your glass, paper and plastics but what of the more substantial perishables in your life?

While a quality sofa should provide many years of comfort, the cruelty of time will inevitably take hold and arrangements must be made. Martin & Parker have built a business on a solution to this problem – refurbishment. 

martin 1Our talented team of craftspeople will be more than happy to take a look at your tired furnishings and offer an affordable outcome. Though you may not think it by looking at our products; many are indeed built upon the husks of formerly beloved furnishings. 

Not only is refurbishment economically accommodating but it also saves the environment from further landfill to decompose. One of our key services is personalised bespoke design, an approach we are more than happy to take when dealing with refurbished products.

martin 2By guiding you through your design step by step, Martin & Parker can ensure that the final outcome is right for you. Our craft is a labour of love and we feel our products must represent this, a proposition no arid, pre-packaged commercial furniture could ever offer. Get in touch today.

If you are certain your furniture is beyond repair but still want to ensure green disposal then click here. All you’ll need to do is find your current location on the map and the website shall direct you to your nearest disposal centre.

The beautiful red chair we donated to the ladies only night!

If you’ve visited our showroom lately you’ll have been greeted by our wonderful Christmas display and decorations.  To keep in line with the season we’ve also ordered in a wonderful selection of vintage yuletide cushions, throws, bed covers and home ware. They look absolutely gorgeous in the showroom and we think you’ll love them in your home too.

We’d also like to thank everybody who attended the ladies only charity event at Derbyshire Cricket Ground this past November 28th. The celebration and fundraiser received a rapturous response and many laughs were had. The beautiful red chair we donated in aid also is said to have gone to a very good home with all money donated going straight to fighting local ladies breast cancer.

If you need to discuss a bespoke idea and other order details please get in touch here, we’ll do our utmost to meet your requirements.
