Our story

ABOUT US

Stamp

The English Cabinet Co. started its journey in 2016 when our founder, Suzi Ellis, was redecorating her daughter’s bedroom. In search of a stylish, affordable, and high quality dressing table that could become a timeless addition to her home, Suzi was struck by the lack of choice in British made goods and the attitude towards sustainability within the industry. With a desire for beautiful design and a passion for Great British quality, she had an idea...

Suzi has been married to Richard Ellis, a fourth generation furniture maker at J T Ellis, for over 20 years. J T Ellis have been manufacturing high quality contract furniture for over 125 years. Sketching her design on a piece of paper and handing it to Richard’s team, Suzi trusted in J T Ellis’ heritage and values to manufacture a beautiful and functional dressing table for her home, and so The English Cabinet Co. was born.

The English Cabinet Co. is built on the belief that UK manufacturers can produce extremely high quality designs at a competitive price. We wanted to reduce the need to ship products around the world, bringing beautiful pieces to the UK in a more sustainable manner, whilst ensuring every home has access to durable and stylish interior design.

Based in Yorkshire, our factory has over 200 staff, and a strong tradition of excellence and family values when it comes to furniture manufacturing. We also collaborate with other quintessential English furniture makers such as Lloyd Loom to produce unique pieces for the home.

“I honestly believe people really do care about where they buy their furniture from, they care if the wood is from sustainable forests and they care about the working conditions of the people making their beautiful pieces, they care about the carbon footprint left on our world from our purchases. I am passionate about delivering our customers elegant, stylish pieces that stand the test of time in both design and quality. I hope you enjoy looking through our first collection. Thank you for finding The English Cabinet Co”.

What’s more, all our furniture is made to order, which is not always the case in today’s mass-produced world. This means that we always know who we are making our furniture for.

You will also be reassured to know that we look after the environment too, and all the wood we use comes from renewable sources. As a result of our support of the environment our company is FSC accredited.
