Spink & Edgar Upholstery has expanded the number of retailers that will exclusively stock its new sofa range, with the appointment of Harrogate-based Smiths The Rink.
Owned by luxury bedmaker Harrison Spinks, Spink & Edgar Upholstery launched at the end of 2014 to a select number of retailers across the UK. The sofa range, which has replaced 60% of the foam and other man-made materials with world-leading spring technology and natural fibres grown on its farm in Yorkshire, is now available from Smith’s 30,000 ft2 premises.
Smiths has a reputation for offering a diverse range of quality furniture in both traditional and contemporary styles. The retailer will sell a selection of Spink & Edgar Upholstery’s new range and will be the only stockist for the North Yorkshire area.
Oliver Smith, director of Smiths The Rink, says: “We’re really excited to be stocking Spink & Edgar Upholstery’s range of sofas. As well as offering something completely new to the furniture market with the spring technology in the seat cushions and throughout the frame, the quality and finish is second to none.
“The high-end upholstery, expert craftsmanship and bespoke service really fits our company’s ethos and is exactly what our customers look for when investing in quality furniture.”
Harrison Spinks’ revolutionary world-leading HD pocket spring technology, used within the new furniture, has received two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in Innovation and Sustainable Development. Capitalising on the luxury bedmakers 175 years’ experience, Spink & Edgar Upholstery has created a range of sofas which carries across the quality, heritage and commitment to innovation from its parent company.
Jo Moore, commercial director of Spink & Edgar Upholstery, adds: “Since launching at the end of 2014, we’ve been really pleased with the reaction from both retailers and consumers who have grown tired of seat cushions flattening over time. By reinventing comfort from the inside out with our unique spring technology and natural fibres, we’re confident that we have revolutionised the way upholstery is made.”
As well as Smiths The Rink stocking the new range of sofas, other retailers include Cookes in Birmingham and Dorset, Martin & Frost in Edinburgh, Ponsford in Sheffield, Sterling Furniture in Tillicoultry and Stocktons in Manchester.
