Launched in 2015 by Monty and Dan at the age of 17, Furniturebox is an expanding online furniture business dedicated to beautiful, quality and affordable products backed up with exceptional customer service. Something that the two founders believe is responsible for the company's fast growth.
Monty had already seen success selling online when the idea for selling furniture such as dining sets online struck. "I was talking to a friend about how everything was moving online except furniture which was still very much bricks and mortar."
Monty says, "I wanted to apply the same principles of selling online, such as fast and free delivery and affordability, to furniture. I started looking for products and asked Dan if he wanted to join me for a year before going to University to see how it goes."
Five years later, no University degrees and thousands of customer orders…the two haven't looked back.
Monty and Dan launch Furniturebox, occupying their first premises in a part of the Beaumont Business Centre.
Incorporated the company - it's official!
Furniturebox's first year is a big success. University is definitely off the cards as the guys focus on growing a successful business instead.
Started selling on Tesco Direct - a big milestone in the company's growth.
