About us

Established in 1887 the Robinson family have been helping to create beautiful, imaginative interiors in the East Midlands for over 125 years. In recent years, the online shop has allowed the customer base to expand and quality Furniture and Lighting are now delivered daily all over the UK. A huge range of smaller accessories are also available online, from clocks to candle holders to statues to diffusers and make ideal gifts or help finish off your room décor.


As a family run business we pride ourselves on providing a personal service to our customers. William Robinson, his brother Matthew and their colleagues are based in their fabulous showroom in Nottingham where they have a wide selection of quality furniture, lighting, mirrors and home accessory items on display – although this is only the tip of the iceberg of available items!

We love the colour pallet and quality of Little Greene paint and as well as having a daily delivery to our showroom, we also sell Little Greene to customers nationwide, normally on a free of charge next day service.

We have a huge range of high quality designer wallpapers and fabrics on offer from the best known UK and international quality brands, as well as the slightly less well known, and have invested over £60,000 in pattern books.

We offer not only high quality wall coverings and fabrics, but also offer a bespoke curtain making service and bespoke upholstery service. We are as happy to provide one roll of designer wallpaper or a small Roman blind as we are to assist with a whole house makeover. Drop in for a coffee and a chat and let us know how we can help make your home a special place.
