About Company

We have a lot of things to be proud of here at Oak Furnitureland.

Firstly, let's talk about our furniture itself. From beautiful bedroom cabinetry and sofas you can't help but sink into, to dining tables you can gather around with loved ones and customisable mattresses that guarantee a dreamy night's sleep, there's something for every room in the home.

All our furniture is exclusively designed and properly made. We use quality hardwood that's been responsibly sourced, and we let the natural beauty of the wood shine through in each piece.

And then we have our people. From our showroom colleagues and our delivery drivers to our customer service team and logistics department; everyone works as one united team, driven by a shared purpose and values.

In short, we make furniture that we're really proud of, so that we can help people make their house a real home. Why not join us?

At Oak Furnitureland we have put Diversity and Inclusion at the top of our people agenda, as we believe that a more diverse and inclusive workplace, where people of different backgrounds are truly represented ensures better outcomes for all colleagues and the business.

You'll find an inclusive environment where you can be yourself and where everyone is driven by the same purpose and values.
