E & A Wates

Our business, founded in 1900 by brothers Edward and Arthur Wates, is possibly unique within Britain. We combine traditional service and a wealth of product knowledge with interior design resources, fabulous furniture and specialist restoration skills. Whether it be supplying the latest sofa or restoring Granny's grand piano, the same enthusiasm and passion will accompany every enquiry, where we will work with you to meet every furnishing challenge. The brothers started this comprehensive furnishing service and also constructed thousands of houses within the locality.

Each property took advantage of the furnishings available and early houses even benefited from our horse drawn removal service. It was in the 1920's that Wates the builders was formally created and grew to become a national company. Today E & A Wates run a four floor furniture showroom incorporating a comprehensive interior design sample library and purpose built furniture restoration workshop.
