Simon Taylor celebrates 35 years with a new showroom

Simon Taylor Furniture is celebrating its 35th year in business and will mark the occasion with a new showroom at its Cane End Works headquarters in Bierton, Buckinghamshire.

The new space will have a range of hand-painted shaker and contemporary kitchens and will feature various appliance brands, including Gaggenau, Miele, Novy and Siemens. There will also be bathroom displays that will include products from Villeroy and Boch and Perrin and Rowe.

There are other plans in place for the company in 2020, including a launch of a new website that will have monthly blog content, which will be supplemented by social media activity. The photographs will be produced by interiors photographer Darren Chung.

Simon Taylor, managing director of Simon Taylor Furniture and an occasional columnist for kbbreview, is a trained cabinetmaker and founded the business in 1985. The company has both a trade and consumer arm and provides bespoke furniture from its workshop in Bierton.

Simon Taylor said: “I have always had a passion for making truly bespoke furniture and the past 35 years have been both very fruitful and enjoyable as no two projects have ever been the same. Over that time, I have also made a lot of good friends in the KBB industry: colleagues, clients, suppliers and competitors.

“We are celebrating this anniversary by making a major investment in the future of our business, both with the refurbishment of the showroom and the creation of a new digital platform to showcase the Simon Taylor Furniture brand. I am excited about the plans we are undertaking as I am already looking forward to our next big anniversary, in five years’ time.”

Over its 35 years in business, Taylor and his team have worked on several projects. These include a full refurbishment of an English stately home, luxury central London apartments, bespoke interior renovations and has produced handcrafted pieces for Linley, while also working directly with architects and interior designers for their schemes.
