About Contract Furniture by Design

As a young company founded in 2016, our achievements and deliverables over the last three years have been staggering — with installations to high-end clients throughout the UK, Europe and USA.

Our team are highly driven, multi-faceted and come together with a number of years’ experience gained within small, medium and large organisations and high-pressure service-orientated environments.

We focus on building relationships through our consultancy and solution-led approach, seeking innovative and cost-saving solutions to clients’ briefs and growing our business through repeat contracts and recommendations. 

Now working with some of the world’s leading high-end restaurant brands, hotels and independent businesses, we are excited to see where the future takes us and we’d love you to be a part of it.
