“Not only is the building a former auction house, but it is also situated amongst the Georgian terraces of St. Vincent Crescent, within a conservation area full of architectural and historical interest. We always aim to respect the area that we move our brand into – ensuring that we enhance the local community and its surrounding areas.” has created a number of jobs in Scotland during the past year through both its Edinburgh showroom and distribution facility in Alloa.

As such, coming to Glasgow represents a huge market opportunity for as there is nowhere else in the city where people can come to visit nearly 8,000ft² of inspiring furniture design.”
