Our Company

We have a lot of things to be proud of here at Oak Furnitureland. 

Ever since we started out, quality has been at the forefront of everything we do. We’re still guided by our original vision. We think every home deserves beautiful furniture that’s made for real life. And we keep the prices real, too.

We’ve built strong relationships with suppliers and quality control teams and have our own delivery crews and customer service centre. All this means we can get our real wood furniture and fabulous sofas into people’s homes as quickly and cost-effectively as possible – with nearly half a million orders every year!

We make furniture for real homes, where children bounce on sofas, papers are stuffed into dresser drawers, and storage footstools are great for a quick tidy-up. Quality is built-in. And it’s not gone unnoticed. Oak Furnitureland has appeared on the Sunday Times Fast Track list for six years running, and our photogenic furniture regularly features in magazines like House Beautiful, Good Homes, Home Style and more.

At Oak Furnitureland we have put Diversity and Inclusion at the top of our people agenda, as we believe that a more diverse and inclusive workplace, where people of different backgrounds are truly represented ensures better outcomes for all colleagues and the business.

We have an inclusive environment where individuals can be themselves and where everyone is driven by the same purpose and values. We are committed to fairness in the way we hire new colleagues and if any additional support is required during the selection process, we’re happy to make the necessary adjustments for anyone that needs them.
