Our collections of designer furniture celebrate the very latest British and International trends. Affordability of design is the cornerstone of the brand alongside fast delivery and the friendly service you would expect from any independent family run business.
The story so far ….
Established as GillmoreSPACE in London in 2001 the company was the creation of Charles Gillmore. Charles had graduated from the prestigious Furniture Design Faculty at Kingston University, London in 1994 and had then worked for two fast growing UK furniture brands.
Founded as a wholesale business GillmoreSPACE quickly established a reputation as a key supplier to the UK’s thriving show home and property rental markets where design, quality, price and inventory are key demands. The friendships and client loyalty that emerged from the show home industry during those early years continue to be brands core business to this day.
In 2006 a desire to move his young family to the area of his upbringing meant Charles relocating GillmoreSPACE from London to the beautiful countryside of South Devon in the West of England. During this time closer ties were established with manufacturing partners in China and an office was established in Guangzhou, China to oversee procurement and quality control.
With a China team in place the brand now had the spring board to attract international buyers eager to access exclusive contemporary British design at factory gate prices. ‘Container direct’ sales soon became a major feature of our business activities with the supply of both catalogue and bespoke designs to global territories including USA, Japan, Australia and India.
The brand’s products have always been made available to the public through online retail partners. And in 2017 a large investment was set aside into our current fully integrated ecommerce website which you are using now.
The company continues to evolve and has grown significantly in recent years. Firmly established as a leading player and specialist in its field, 2017 saw the re-branding of the business to the simple family name of ‘Gillmore’.
