The mrf team

mrfdesign is highly respected within the UK furniture market and has major strengths ranging from a good reputation, flexibility and customer satisfaction.

The quality of upholstery work is a key attribute reflecting our goal for excellence & professionalism within the business.

A wide range of skill sets is represented within the team.

A complete service working model, from design through production to assembly and completion of project, is our key selling point. This all-in-one delivery is cost effective and makes it easier to complete a project on time, to price and to specification.

Our direct involvement with clients to highlight their design requirements is a key objective – this and a complete project management capability form a significant part of the company’s USP.

mrfdesign as a micro business can compete with the very best in the furniture industry through its wide skill sets and flexible manufacturing capability. Its design portfolio and delivery of services, as well as the reputation of each director within the industry, have helped to build the brand over the last 12 years.

Flexibility and rapid response manufacturing are readily enabled by retaining all major operations in-house.
