1995 The Old Bull Stores Farningham 

In 1995 the 'Old 'Bull Stores' was acquired - an old coaching barn used as a grocery store. It was sympathetically restored to reveal it’s hidden character. 

The ancient construction made it a perfect setting to display pine and oak furniture. 

2011 - The Polhill Arms Public House - Halstead Sevenoaks 

When a derelict public house (The Polhill Arms) was spotted in nearby Sevenoaks we knew it would make a was fantastic site for a new showroom.

The huge task of renovating the extremely neglected building (originally built in 1836) was undertaken and the landmark building preserved and converted into beautiful display areas.
