For people with a discerning taste in soft furnishings and sofas, 1980 was a good year. It was that year that we at Martin & Parker opened our first sofa factory!
Our aim was to produce quality hand-crafted soft furnishings and sofas and we soon built a reputation for our excellent products. We are very proud of our skilled craftspeople and our numerous happy clients have provided us with testimonials to say they too are very pleased with our work.
Martin & Parker rapidly grew from strength to strength and within 3-years we had outgrown our original premises and we moved to the Ascot Drive showroom in Derby, which is where we currently are to this day. We have a large workshop on site employing many local people and a modern showroom to display our prestigious merchandise. From these purpose built premises, Martin & Parker continues to produce and display a wide range of finely handcrafted chairs, sofas and furniture in a variety of styles and quality materials.
As our reputation has grown over the years we have had the honour of being involved in some brilliant projects including 60 minute makeover for ITV and more recently DIY SOS for the BBC where we supplied a sofa and armchair to the family that will be featured in the series ‘DIY SOS: The Big Build’. It was used as part of a life changing transformation to the home of a family in Derby.
In time honoured tradition, Martin & Parker remains a company small enough to care and large enough to cope.
