About Us

Pickworth Furnishing has remained a family-run furniture shop since the day it opened its doors in 1840 and remains today one of the East Midlands’ oldest furniture stores. We showcase an eclectic mix of quality, traditional and contemporary furniture and upholstery, and offer competitive prices, high-quality pieces, and a highly personalised service. We stock many of the world’s best brands in our Loughborough-based store including Parker Knoll, Himolla, and Tetrad. We ensure we consistently offer the biggest names in finest quality furnishing manufacturers from around the world.


The family business was originally founded by Draper and Lincolnshire man Thomas Pickworth in 1840 in the Market Place, next to what is now McDonald’s.

Thomas was joined by his son Henry who showed an enterprising spirit, typical of the Victorian era. Henry was ahead of his time on many retail concepts. When the council demolished the original shop to widen the A6 he refused to be relocated to a modern 2 story building but insisted on being only on the ground floor with no step, even though this resulted in a very odd-shaped building! The door was always wide open even in the depths of winter; nothing should ever deter the customers from coming in insisted Henry.

To this day Pickworth Furnishing remains one of Leicestershire’s most well-regarded furniture stores. Customers are always treated to the highest quality, personalised service, and we even run our own delivery fleet.
