The mid March showroom opening party was a great success where the champagne flowed and every canape consumed. Approximately 120 guests experienced the many fine pieces of cabinet and upholstered furniture displayed. Parties were treated to a comprehensive factory tour by the Directors and Designers of both Greengate and Luxury in Wood.
Factory tours start from where the rolls of fabric enter the production process. Every inch of material is quality checked and accurately measured before proceeding to cutting, sewing and ultimately covering expertly upholstered chairs and sofas. Guests were fascinated to experience the ‘leather mine’ where countless hides are carefully stored away from direct sunlight.
The tour took in the furthest reaches of the wood mill where a fine array of timbers are delivered and marked out using new and historic templates. Chair, cabinet and table making areas where explored followed by polishing and despatch. The evening was rounded off in the showrooms with the customary prize drawer winners receiving their rewards. Bidding fond farewells then heading home with renewed enthusiasm to enhance their homes with fine English craftsmanship.
