Office furniture designer and manufacturer Bisley has opened a new UK showroom on Manchester’s Mosley Street – an area that is synonymous with architects and designers.
The new 2,900 sq ft showroom, the firm’s second in the UK and its first in the north of England, encompasses two floors of the Calico building, a recently restored former industrial warehouse. The decision to open a premises in Manchester was taken due to the rapid growth in demand witnessed in the northern and Scottish markets.
Bisley recruited Scott Douglas as its first Northern Sales Director, and his first initiative was to find and open a dedicated Bisley showroom in the region. Douglas has developed a strong team around him, including A&D Manager Ellie Phillip, Reece Chappell and, more recently, Niamh Kirwin. They will be focusing on the architectural and design market, while also displaying the Bisley Home domestic interiors range – which was launched at Clerkenwell Design Week earlier this year.
The opening of the new Manchester showroom follows a recent relaunch of Bisley’s Dutch showroom in Tilburg, and precedes the relaunch of its Dubai showroom in the autumn.
