Welcome to WBfurniture.co.uk, the online home of Worthington Brougham Furniture Ltd. If you’d like to know a bit more about who we are, what we do and how we got started, you’ve come to the right place!
Who is Worthington Brougham Furniture Ltd?
Owned and run by the Worthington and Brougham families, Worthington Brougham Furniture is an award-winning family business specialising in supplying high quality sofas and furniture at the lowest possible price. With a long standing background in the furniture and interiors industry, and over 40 years of experience, we know that what our customers want is expensive furniture with a cheap price tag – so that is what we do.
We work hard to secure the best deals on designer and branded upholstery, furniture and other homewares and accessories. Every week rain or shine we bring in brand new stock from high end brands and popular designers, so there’s always something new to see, and it’s all heavily discounted up to 75% off the price it usually sells for on the high street.
In 2019 we won "Furniture Retailer of the Year" in the Manchester Prestige Awards. In their words "The judges are highly impressed by Worthington Brougham Furniture’s quality
of stock, and the excellent price point at which they are able to sell them. Having grown from a small shop to a successful showroom and website through word-of-mouth within a decade of opening shows just how satisfied they leave each of their customers. The judges also commend the business for their exceptional range.".
While the awards were postponed in 2020, in 2021 and 2022 we won "Furniture Retailer of the Year" for the Manchester & North West Prestige Awards thanks in no small part to our continuing commitment to providing our customers with high quality furniture at low prices.
The Story So Far
The Worthington and Brougham families have been working together in the interiors and furniture industry for over 40 years, beginning with a small shop in Cheadle, Cheshire called Past, Present and Future. PPF supplied restored antique furniture, architectural salvage, and selected handcrafted gifts and home decor to customers throughout the Greater Manchester area and beyond during the early 1980's, including some very prestigious television studio sets! Later on the families became involved in more commercial interior design and shopfitting, including design and restoration work in Manchester City Centre and surrounding areas in the North West. With a strong reputation for trustworthiness the family business did extensive work on some of Manchester's most iconic buildings and organisations, including the Hallé St Peter's building, the Lowry Centre and a great many city centre shops, as well as a number of properties for the Catholic Church.
Worthington Brougham Furniture itself began in 2009 as a smaller scale family business, selling clearance sofas and suites from a barn in Ribchester which we quickly outgrew. Next came a small shop in the village of Longridge, near Preston in Lancashire. Local customers were delighted with the bargains we offered on ex display branded furniture, and the shop rapidly gained an almost cult following as people planned weekly visits to coincide with the arrival each week of new and different stock.
In the years since then we’ve grown a lot, expanding from a small shop to a larger shop and now to our present location, a large showroom in Clitheroe. Despite this the core of our business remains exactly the same as it was when we first began in that barn – we supply the highest quality furniture, at the lowest possible price. Our website is updated on a daily basis, and our customers still visit every Friday, Saturday and Monday to see what new and unique furniture has arrived in our weekly delivery.
What We Do
If you want to know more about the stock we sell, just take a look around our website! You’ll find a varied selection of high quality sofas, suites, dining sets and all kinds of furniture from well known brands and top quality designers. Our prices are typically 50-75% less than the high street, a discount we achieve by selling overstock, end of line, prototypes, sample pieces, ex-display and bulk clearance stock. With discounts this fierce we’re often not allowed to advertise the brand names of the products we sell, but if you think you recognise the make or model of one of our sofas you’re probably right – we only sell the original authentic brands and designs.
As well as supplying customers with luxurious labels, sumptuous sofas and designer dining sets at bargain basement prices, we also offer exemplary customer service to any and all potential customers. We aim to answer any and all queries within a few hours if they're during office hours, and have received many compliments on our polite and helpful service. We love to talk! If you have any special requirements, or a request for a particular piece of furniture, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
