Derby shoppers now have a new destination to discover - the Frank Knighton showroom on Ascot Drive
Frank Knighton, the region’s sofa specialists, offers both bespoke sofas and leading brands, bringing more choice and style to the city. ‘Derby seemed to be under-represented for bespoke quality crafted sofas and also the kind of leading brands that we offer such as Parker Knoll and G Plan,’ revealed managing director Richard Knighton. ‘That’s why we’re fulfilling a long-held ambition to move into Derby city centre. As a family business local to the area, we’re excited about bringing great quality, value and service to the people of Derby.’
As it prepares to celebrate its 30th year in business, this successful local family business has earned a reputation for quality workmanship. Frank Knighton custom-makes sofas to meet the precise needs of customers: from the colour to the fabric, the exact size that fits a particular space and, of course, budget. Trained staff help choose the right colours, fabrics and lumbar support. Meanwhile, the upholstery uses top grade kiln-dried beech for frames and 400mm thick high density foam to guarantee comfort and optimal performance. This furniture is built to last and comes with the reassurance of a 10-year structure guarantee. Members of staff carefully select every component – from the coil springs to the castors. Customers are even welcome to visit the company’s Ilkeston workshop to see their bespoke furniture being handcrafted.
Alongside its own premium bespoke sofas, Frank Knighton stocks leading designer brands including G Plan, La-Z-Boy, Natuzzi Editions and Parker Knoll among the 35 displays at Derby – from must-have colours and fabrics to more traditional materials, innovative new designs to retro favourites.
‘We offer all the latest styles, trends, fabrics and colours to transform homes this winter – all at specially discounted prices, including exclusive launch offers for our Derby opening,’ adds Richard.
With other showrooms in Ilkeston and Nottingham, the continuing success of this local family business proves that real craftsmanship and friendly customer service never go out of style. And it’s great news for quality-conscious Derby shoppers…
