Celtheath Contract Furniture
Anne and David founded Celtheath Contract Furniture back in 1990, having spent many years working within the UK furniture industry for the leading luxury furniture specialists Waring and Gillow. They recognised there was a need for a customer focused furniture restoration and bespoke furniture manufacturing service within the hotel and leisure sectors.
This opportunity was rewarded within their first year of trading as they secured the prestigious contract to refurbish the furniture and upholstered fixtures for the Dorchester Hotel on Park Lane, London. The Hotel was closed for this major refit with the brief that the furniture needed to retain its original 1930s look and ambiance.
This family-owned business has grown from strength to strength to become one of the UK’s market leaders in the supply of bespoke upholstery; the refurbishment of existing furniture; and furniture logistics to the commercial, residential and contract sectors.
In 2001 their daughter, Elizabeth, joined the company to continue the family commitment to a long-term focus on their customers, employees, suppliers and the greater community. With her husband Chris joining the company as Contracts Director in 2016.

Understanding that referrals are at the heart of the business, we have grown to become a recognized leader in the supply of bespoke upholstery, refurbishment of existing furniture and logistics in the commercial, residential and contract sectors.
