Ferrious UK Design Store Relocating to Altrincham Press Release

Ferrious, a leading UK design shop, is due to open its doors in Altrincham in early 2019. After falling in love with one of the original Art Deco Burton stores situated on Stamford New Road, the duo behind Ferrious tracked down the owner of the building, and on meeting, discovered a mutual passion and desire to bring the building back to life. The obsession with the Burton family grew, and trips to the few original stores still left in the UK have culminated in restoration of the original glazing and the commissioning of key features in order to return the building back to being the home of great style; albeit this time in furniture and lighting.

Over two floors, the shop will house the best of European design. The passion with which the collection has been curated has been built from a 30 year career. A career that has seen the duo exhibit their work in Milan, Paris, New York and London and design homes throughout Europe and America. Ferrious has worked alongside distinguished architects on projects as diverse as The Home Office with Terry Farrell, to the first collection of furniture and lighting by Ilse Crawford. Jeremy West, director at Ferrious said, “The companies we work with have become our friends; our desire is to work with people whose overriding passion is beautiful design. If what we do and what we show can lift your spirits, then we have succeeded”

After 21 years based in central Manchester, and having created one of the country’s most beautiful design shops from a derelict railway arch, Jeremy, Paul and the Ferrious team are thrilled to be moving to an incredible new showroom and becoming part of the community that is growing in Altrincham. Alongside the shop, the showroom will continue to host the events programme that has been built at their present showroom, bringing design exhibitions straight from the Milan fair and offering a platform for young, emerging talent.
