Why Choose Us?

We thought you needed to know a little bit about what makes us so special...

1 Run in the family

Did you know we’re a family-run business? It all began 69 years ago when Charles Barker and Alex Stonehouse opened the very first Barker and Stonehouse showroom in the North of England.

Fast forward to today, we are in our third generation of ownership by the Barker family and are the largest independent furniture store in the U.K. Read our story >

2 Never ending choices

We know that homes have personalities too. That’s why we offer a huge range of lovely pieces for your home in a cornucopia of colours, textures and patterns. So you’ll certainly find something you love. We can even provide a 2-year guarantee, which can be extended to 5 years if you prefer.

3 Door-to-door

We have our very own friendly delivery team. They don’t just deliver to your door, they place your furniture exactly where you want it and ensure you’re super happy with your purchase before taking all of the packaging away. Find out more >

4 Hassle free returns

If you’re not over the moon with your online purchase, that’s okay. All we ask is that you ring us within 14 days and we’ll come and pick up it up. Please see our returns page for more information. Read more >

5 Remove and recycle

We will gladly recycle your old furniture for a very small fee, to make room for your shiny new Barker and Stonehouse buys. If the items you are giving away are in a good condition, we will donate them to the British Heart Foundation to be resold in their stores. Find out more >

6 0% Finance? Fine

Simply pop in to your nearest store or click the ‘Buy on Finance’ option at the checkout. Pay your 20% deposit today and the rest in small chunks throughout the year. Our 0% finance option means you can spread the cost as easily as you can spread out on one of our comfy corner sofas. Find out more >

7 Doing good with wood

We're pleased to be a founding member of Trees4Trees, a non-profit organisation established in Indonesia to empower local communities through an ongoing reforestation and education programme. Already, over 100,000 saplings have been planted as a result of the initiative - good for the planet, the growers and the future of sustainable furniture. Read more >
