Espoke bed page

Furniture design and manufacturing start up Espoke Living has officially launched its new website and business.

The company consists of manufacturing duo Aqeel Ahmed and Faisal Akbar, as well as marketing specialists Ken Davies and Nathan Pearson, who all teamed up to make the venture a reality with the website going live this month.

The concept behind the company is to allow consumers to visit its online platform and design their furniture, ranging from sofas to beds – including a choice of fabrics, to a bespoke finish, using its unique design technology.

Manufactured at its Lancashire-based workshop, the company has been able to keep its start-up costs below £150,000 due to its four partner collaboration of skills, and has also been awarded with the ‘Made in Britain’ mark.

Commenting on the launch, founding partner, Aqeel Ahmed said: “It was important to us that the customers get a great buying experience and this starts with the website and continues through to the furniture being expertly delivered by our own team.”

Co-founder, Faisal Akbar added: “This union is distinct because both the marketing and manufacturing teams are all partners in the business, therefore we all have a vested interest in making the Espoke brand the premier producer of quality furniture in the UK.”

Having launched only last week, the company is already fulfilling orders and recently sponsored two awards at the prestigious Asian Media Awards in The Hilton, Manchester.

The company confirmed that plans are already underway on version two of the site, incorporating more advanced technology, as well as drawing up plans to talk to major retailers to demonstrate the Espoke technology and fulfilment platform.
