Today is the last day in the office before the Christmas break and many people are looking forward to their holiday. Plumbs have been busy over the last couple of weeks with many Christmas activities including office parties, a Christmas meal served by the production managers in fancy dress and a Christmas raffle.

We hope that everyone has a wonderful Christmas!

Retirement After 34 Years Service! (That's 12,418 days)

After 34 years at Plumbs, Maureen Williams retires today.

Plumbs regularly celebrate long serving employees of 25 years. To achieve a 34 year run however really is something to be very proud of.

Maureen joined Plumbs in the seventies, and has worked in many departments over the years including the shops and exhibitions. More recently she worked as Showroom Manager. She has always been a great "people person" and will be greatly missed. Congratulations Maureen and best wishes for your retirement!

The Ultimate Face Lift For Two Eighty Year Olds!

We have finally finished the two antique wing back chairs that came in recently for a face lift. People have been following the progress of these chairs on Facebook and Twitter so I thought I would do a photo montage to show the full effect. Doesn’t the finished result look fantastic?

The finished chairs and recliner (centre in the final photo) will be returned to the customer in time for Christmas too. Please remember that these photos have not been taken in a photography studio so the final picture is not a true reflection of the fabric colour! Apologies for the lighting and colour variation.

We even managed to find some history on the chairs after the original tag fell out one of the chairs. Originally made by Pole Manufacturers H.J. Searle & Son Ltd, the ‘Berkley Chair’ was sold for many years. Look at this poster that we found on the internet that was featured in the newspaper advertising a later model of the chair!
