North East furniture retailer Turnbull & Thomas has launched its first retail showroom since its inception as on online business earlier this year.

The company—which sells mid–high end furniture brands such as Frank Hudson across products groups spanning cabinet, upholstery, beds and accents—has opened a shop at Urlay Nook Road in Eaglescliffe.

The company was incorporated in March this year and has—until now—been trading solely via its ecommerce website at turnbullandthomas.co.uk.

Its co-directors are Gareth Thomas, md at Teesside manufacturing company Icon Plastics, and Terence Turnbull, who has 24 years’ experience in the Armed Forces, where he acquired expertise in distribution, re-supply and logistics.
