Fine Furniture Ltd, Herefordshire
Herefordshire-based Fine Furniture Ltd lives up to its name by designing, making and selling beautiful, contemporary and traditional wooden furniture, principally as bespoke commissions.
Based on a busy main road in Bartestree near Hereford, Fine Furniture’s premises had not been refurbished for many years and the company was seeking finance to transform the interiors of the showroom’s two buildings into a contemporary art and craft gallery space.
This would also showcase the mixed-media work of fellow artisans and in the process, increase footfall and bring in an additional income from sales commissions.
To support this convincing and strategic aim, a loan of £25,000 was awarded.
The difference made
With the company’s bank refusing to help the Impetus business loan enabled this long-standing company to meet its aim, which was to continue and thrive. The result has been a £42,000 social and economic impact.
