The name Fullers Finer Furniture is synonymous with high quality bespoke furniture. The expertly designed and crafted work has been consistently in high demand since the company was established in 1985. Fullers, never a company to rest on their laurels, thrives on enterprise, change and challenge, at the same time recognising the need to maintain, preserve and respect, historical craftsmanship.

One major change occurred in August 2017 when proprietor Paul Fuller’s son, Oliver, joined the company as an Apprentice Furniture Maker. Oliver attended college one day per fortnight and qualified with distinction in furniture manufacture in 2019. He then enrolled for a further year at Didac College to gain his level 3 qualification.

Paul may have qualified some time previously but he also gained 11 distinctions in furniture studies and an impressive total of three first prize medals.

On Monday 2nd March 2020, Paul and Oliver attended a special ceremony in London where they were presented, by the Lord Mayor, Alderman William Russell, with the prestigious Furniture Makers’ Company, Master Certificate in Furniture Making and the Apprentice Certificate in Furniture Making, respectively.

The awards are sponsored by City and Guilds and City of London. Each application is assessed by a panel of representatives from the Furniture Makers’ Company and the applicant must provide evidence of achieving an appropriate level of responsibility within the industry and having a technical knowledge in the relevant sector. 

‘The recognition of our individual skills and experience means a great deal to us,’ said Paul. ‘The fact that we were both presented with our respective certificates at the same ceremony made it a truly memorable day. I feel proud to have two generations of award-winning furniture makers in what is a family business. The aim now is to strive together to extend our skills and experience”.
