Our Story So Far
The Painted Furniture Co. brand was launched in 2010 by husband-and-wife Adam and Rosy. The two already had extensive experience in the furniture industry. Yet they found the state of modern furniture quite bland. There was too much wood finished with too much lacquer. They began toying with the idea of swapping the lacquer for paint.
On a whim they asked one of their oak collection suppliers to paint a few pieces in a nice grey-green colour. The supplier responded with an oak dresser painted in a colour Adam and Rosy refer to as 'Rockford'. And with that piece, their first Cotswold collection was born.
Painting their oak furniture instantly provided a collection that still offered all of the same quality customers had come to expect. It was simply injected with a bit of fun by way of colour. Incidentally, that first Cotswold dresser with Rockford paint still sits in Adam and Rosy's home today.
They knew they had something different right from the start. They also knew that The Painted Furniture Co. brand needed to be different from top to bottom. They set out to make their brand, and their company, something people were not expecting.
What Makes Us Different
More than a decade later, The Painted Furniture Co. is still different by design. What makes us different? A lot of things, beginning with our premium quality, timeless furniture that is unlike anything our customers can buy elsewhere. No one else has our colour choices. No one else combines natural wood with high quality paint finishes the way we do. But that's not all.
We believe our customers are even more important than our high-quality furniture. We go to great lengths to ensure that every customer is taken care of throughout the entire buying journey. From initial contact to delivery and beyond, putting smiles on customer faces is always top priority. We want you to keep smiling years after delivery and final inspection.
The quality of both build and finish across our various collections is exceptional. You can certainly buy cheaper furniture elsewhere, but if you want something that really demonstrates why you spent a few extra pounds, our collections offer exactly what you're looking for. You will fully understand every time you look at your piece from The Painted Furniture Co.
Unlike nameless and faceless corporate retailers, our company is run by a relatively small group of real people just like you. We actually like meeting and talking to our customers. If you have a particular request, know that we have probably heard it before. We will do whatever we can to accommodate you. If you need some advice, we will happily talk about furniture and fashion for as long as you like. And if you ever have a problem after delivery, we will give you our full attention. We will do whatever it takes to resolve the issue.
We do not have sales associates, relationship managers, or customer advisers. We employ real people who have a real interest in both our customers and our business. Whenever you interact with The Painted Furniture Co., you are interacting with people who want to enjoy their homes and furnishings just as much as you do. In short, we live in the real world, too!
Nestled in the pretty countryside of the South West, in the Vale of the White Horse, this bustling workshop is at the heart of our furniture collections.
Does our description sound romantic and storybook-worthy? The location actually is and it’s in our workshop is where all of the magic happens. Every piece of furniture we sell is made to order here. Every piece is handcrafted by experienced builders who know their stuff.
The one thing you will not find at our workshop is mass production. We don't employ hundreds of workers standing at a conveyor belt assembling one or two pieces as they pass by. Each furniture piece is given the attention it deserves by a small number of craftsmen.
Our workshop is just that: a workshop. It is not a huge mass production factory churning out piece after piece without any acknowledgement of the customer who will own it.
Handmade in Britain

Made in the UK
Choice of Colours
It is one thing to claim furniture is handmade in Britain, but it's an entirely different matter to actually do it. To us, 'handmade' means something specific. Our craftsmen rely on traditional building techniques. They are familiar with dovetail joints, rulers, pencils, and line drawings. They are familiar with time-tested basics because they return to them day after day.
To us, 'handmade in Britain' means combining traditional furniture building techniques with modern machinery. The machinery makes it easier to create precision dovetail joints, for example. But the joint itself is a traditional joint that offers exceptional strength. It has been used for centuries because it has proven itself.
Experience and Skill
Our craftsmen have over 100 years of experience in the timber trade. They know their stuff like no one else in the business. Yet experience alone cannot produce the furniture pieces that come out of our workshop. Experience must be combined with skill to achieve the level of quality we demand.
Needless to say, our craftsmen are among the most skilled in the industry. Not only that, but they also love what they do. They put their heart and soul into every piece they produce. You will see it every time you glance at your painted furniture from The Painted Furniture Co.
As for materials, we source our timber from experienced suppliers. Only the highest quality materials will do. We choose timber with a mind toward the quality of your furniture years down the road. In other words, only the best materials make it possible to create timeless furniture. Our experienced carpenters work with it using a combination of modern and traditional cutting and construction techniques.

We just wanted to say how delighted we are with our new bedroom furniture. The Cirencester showroom is well laid out with an amazing choice and all the staff helpful and knowledgable but we would like to thank you in particular, for helping us to decide on the style and colour to suit our needs and keeping us informed from order to delivery. The Oxford range is perfect in our cottage bedroom and the quality is excellent.
I would like to mention the delivery team who were friendly and professional and took great care in placing the chest of drawers, gents chest and bedside tables in situ.
The whole experience has been a pleasure from start to finish. We will definitely recommend you to family and friends.
