Scottish sales are continuing to rise for The Headboard Workshop; much to the delight of the small, family-run company based in rural South Wales.
The Headboard Workshop receives a significant number of orders from north of the border for their beautifully crafted bespoke upholstered headboards and bedroom furniture.
Flying in the face of a world where lower priced, mass produced furniture is becoming ever more prevalent, The Headboard Workshop offers quality craftsmanship to the discerning customer at an affordable price. The team is of the strong belief that furniture should be beautiful and functional; as well as durable, and so insists that every single piece of its bedroom furniture meets this criteria.
Product innovation is always very high on the agenda at The Headboard Workshop, with the team constantly looking to come up with new and diverse models to introduce to their collection. The team also insists on reviewing and refreshing their fabric selection on a regular basis to ensure that they continue to provide customers with the widest choice possible of superior upholstery options.
The company started out over 30 years ago in a London garage belonging to Euan and Laura Kelway-Bamber. The headboards were all made to order, all in the customer’s own material and were always delivered on time. The word spread quickly and the team has never looked back. Since its inception, the company has grown considerably from a team of two, to the current team of 15. Despite the increase in numbers, the business is still run very much as a family business, with Euan and Laura leading the sales and marketing team from the company HQ near Chepstow and Peter and Debbie Davies heading up the workshop in Blackwood, Caerphilly.
It is surely not a total coincidence that the man at the helm, Euan Kelway Bamber, is of strong Scottish lineage, being the son of Lieutenant-Colonel Claude Glen Kelway-Bamber who served with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. Customers will also not fail to notice that a significant number of their headboard models are named after Scottish Isles. The Iona, Mull, Jura and Arran models are amongst their most popular models.
According to Euan, “For whatever reason, we appear to have developed a particularly strong customer base in Scotland. People really appreciate the fact that we are a small, rural UK-based business and know that whatever they receive will have been handcrafted by real people, rather than mass-produced on a production line somewhere.
“We place great importance on outstanding, good old customer service and although we are very much an online business, customers know that we are always here and happy to speak with them to ensure they get exactly what they want.”
