Why join the Furniture makers’ company?

Supporting, educating and inspiring… None of these would be possible without our membership.

All our members are connected with the furnishing industry and bring a wealth of knowledge, experience and contacts they are keen to share.

They could be designers, manufacturers, distributors, craftsmen, retailers, suppliers, lecturers, PR practitioners or journalists. We have individual and corporate members, men and women, young and old.


What they all have in common is their passion for the furnishing industry and a wish to give something back. Members volunteer their time and expertise, helping to steer our activities and grow our remit as a modern livery company. They support and sponsor our many fundraising events around the UK and educational programme.


They provide many opportunities for us to grow and expand what we do, telling the world about us and furthering our aims and objectives.


Our members enjoy having the chance to get involved, to meet each other, to hear other points of view and widen their knowledge.

“Membership gives us a platform to make a worthwhile contribution, giving something back to the industry”

Richard Jessup, Lectra

Get involved locally

Our head office is located at Furniture Makers’ Hall in London, but we are a national charity that supports the entire UK furnishing industry. With members from businesses up and down the country, we’re not short of people supporting and organising events to fundraise for the charity, mentor and encourage local students and promote the work we do. 

Our six regional committees enable furnishing industry colleagues to build links with local members and get involved with our many activities, both charitable and otherwise.
