FURNITURE OUTLET STORES UK
John Lewis Home Outlet
John Lewis have a wonderful outlet store based in Swindon, primarily used to sell customer returns of electrical goods and modern bedroom furniture at a fraction of their original cost. The turnover of stock is fast so don’t hang around umming and ahhing if you see something you like.
Trade Secrets is AMAZING! It sells overstock, cancelled orders and returns from 6 of the biggest names in UK furniture at heavily discounted prices. They currently stock sets of warehouse in two locations, Banbury and Burton on Trent with lots and lots of living room furniture which they sell thick and fast. Stock changes on a regular basis so it’s well worth stopping in a couple of times if you have something specific in mind.
If you’re near to Suffolk, Leeds, Bath or Reading you can’t go far wrong with hitting Multiyork’s factory outlet stores. In these stores you can pick up ex display pieces of table or many other thing and returns at great discounts. Choose from leather sofa and chairs through to dining tables and TV cabinets and stand.

If you’re a fan of Emma Bridgewater’s beautiful designs it is well worth paying a visit to the Emma Bridgewater factory shop in Stoke – you can even paint your own items with the help of Emma Bridgewater artists in the decorating studio (I reviewed this activity here). Not only can you buy everything cheap in the factory makes but you can also visit the seconds shops to find samples, seconds and discontinued lines at knocked down prices. You can also buy Emma Bridgewater seconds online here or visit the online outlet.
