Ashbourne House


It started here…

Co Founder Ben Walsgrove was developing a student scheme in Nottingham and was determined to not furnish it with run of the mill student furniture, that would neither excite him nor his ever more demanding client, his tenants……..

He commissioned experienced furniture designer, Adam Ross, to challenge the status quo and design a robust yet design led solution. 

By combining white melamine faced plywood with an innovative design, Adam proved that by using plywood, the furniture could be far harder wearing than the traditional MDF or MFC and could also be very attractive with curves being incorporated in to the designs. The results now speak for themselves. 100% occupancy at higher rental levels with no maintenance issues whatsoever. 

‘Working with Adam made me realise that there was a huge gap in the student market that needed filling quickly. Within a month of setting up the company we realised we were on to something…student furniture can be exciting and if the right materials are procured it can also last far longer than other alternative furniture’
