BeadleCrome Interiors was one of the first independent retailers to introduce real leather sofas and chairs to its customers. Gimson and Slater, Tetrad, Pief and Natuzzi among the favourites. Exhibitions were arranged in the town to introduce customers to the benefits of leather. Connollys, the specialist leather supplier, attended and loaned some informative displays explaining about leather. BeadleCrome Interiors became recognised by top suppliers as a showcase for their products and designs.

The company purchased and moved into their current larger town centre premises in 1994, just across the road from the original shop. This has allowed much more space spread over four floors for their unique furniture offering. A family owned and managed thriving business supported by staff that are passionate about informing, supplying and delivering outstanding furniture to perfectly suit customer’s requirements.
