about us

mrfdesign are experienced manufacturers and suppliers of contract furniture within the UK. In addition to our standard product portfolio, we offer a bespoke manufacturing service working to site specific dimensions.  We provide a complete service working model, from design to production and final assembly.  All of our products are manufactured to an agreed programme and can be professionally installed by our fitting team.  Our core values are to provide a quality product and service from start to finish, ensuring full customer satisfaction.

our approach

Our manufacturing facility is situated in the heart of the Midlands and it’s where all of the fun happens. We are experienced furniture designers and understand the importance of bringing ideas to life.  Your furniture is manufactured to order, giving you the opportunity to customize the design & specification prior to production.  Our professional working methods ensure that we work efficiently throughout the process to deliver projects on time and on budget.

the team

The mrfdesign team is made up from a lot of Steve’s & Andy’s with the exception of Matt, George

and Eny; we are a small group that packs a punch!


The quality of our upholstery work is a key attribute, reflecting our goal for excellence & professionalism within the business.  With three BA (Hons) design degrees plus an MA qualification, and many years’ experience in manufacturing, mrfdesign has established a good reputation within the UK contract furniture market.  A wide range of skill sets is represented within the team with major strengths ranging from problem-solving, manufacturing flexibility and customer service.  Our direct involvement with clients to achieve their design requirements is a prime objective and, along with a complete project management facility, forms a significant part of the company’s USP.
