Small Business of the Year entrant – JLC Interiors Ltd

JLC Interiors Limited’s service is so bespoke its range is virtually limitless and it can work with rooms of any shape and size.

The Hednesford-based company designs, manufactures and fits bespoke fitted furniture for every room in the home including lounge units, media wall units, wardrobes, kitchens, home offices, understairs units and entertainment spaces.

Founded by husband and wife team Libby and John Chapman in January 2018, the business now employs a team of six staff including John’s sister, Karen.

“Our team is like an extended family,” said Libby. “We’re very family oriented. We’ve known most of the people who work for us for a long time – there aren’t many people who can say they’ve known their colleagues for 35 years.”

John has been working in the furniture industry since his teens so it was a natural progression to start his own business.

“My husband has been doing this since he was 14 and started helping his dad when he was still at school,” said Libby. “He’s always had an aptitude for woodworking and has worked with all types of wood over the years.

“John is a very knowledgeable individual and not only does he design the furniture he buys the necessary items, manufactures and on occasions delivers our products.

“He follows every job from beginning to end and has a profound understanding of what customers want.”

JLC Interiors’s USP is that unlike some fitted furniture companies it isn’t limited by standard sizes.

“Our furniture is so bespoke that we’re not governed by standard sizes. Some companies have units that come in particular sizes and can’t make them bespoke to fit a room. We can make furniture bespoke to fit any space which can come in useful for curved ceilings, angles and other irregular spaces.

“We can do whatever the customers needs and make use of every space that’s available.”

JLC Interiors Limited has entered the Small Business of the Year category of the Staffordshire University Business Awards.
