About Abode



Abode ShopfrontAbode began in 1975 when the founder left his job in dairy farming and moved to South Norfolk and in doing so turned a wood-turning hobby into his profession. Initially the company started by producing turned wooden components for other furniture makers and making a small range of furniture in a small farm based workshop. The hand crafted furniture was sold to local customers and at specialist craft shows around the country.

The business grew steadily and in 1996 our Norwich store opened in an impressive architect designed building in the historic city centre. From this unique store and via the Abodedirect.co.uk website we currently send furniture all over the UK.

We have continued to develop our own furniture ranges and moved to larger premises in 1999 and expanded again in 2004 to give us much greater workshop and warehouse space.

Our policy is to maintain a close working relationship with manufacturers. We regularly visit factories and carry out our own quality control checks to ensure our standards are maintained. We actively source furniture from around the world, as well as the UK, and we are always looking for high quality furniture that we can offer at great value prices.

Abode Direct continues to trade successfully under it's new owners, Cooper Services of Little Fransham,Norfolk.
