June 2017 marks the third anniversary of the opening of our Burlanes Sevenoaks showroom. What an amazing three years it has been; we have seen our Burlanes team double in size, along with the launch of Decolane: our most versatile style yet.
Established in 2011, in a converted barn in West Farleigh, Burlanes has grown from strength to strength. After a successful three years at the barn, we took the decision to move our showroom to Sevenoaks, whilst keeping our workshop in West Farleigh. Fast forward another three years to 2017, (involving the expansion of our Sevenoaks showroom and moving our workshop to Rochester), and Burlanes begins the next chapter of its journey - new team members and a brand new premises! We are excited to announce that we are opening our second showroom in Chelmsford, Essex.
"After three successful years in our Sevenoaks showroom, we are really excited to be branching out to Chelmsford. As an independent company, we work closely with our customers to provide a bespoke service from the first meeting, to the final handover of a project, and we are looking forward to expanding our customer base into Essex. Two of our founders are Essex born-and-bred, and are excited to be bringing Burlanes back to their home county!" - Lindsey Durrant, Burlanes' Sales Director
We pride ourselves on having a strong team of highly skilled and dedicated staff, and have recently welcomed a number of new people to our team. Russell Sargent has a very successful career history in design, and has recently joined our CAD designer Kim Carrington, at our Sevenoaks showroom. Our Sales Director, Lindsey Durrant, will be spending much of her time in our Chelmsford showroom, with Jon Sillitoe, our Design Consultant. Dave and our workshop team will remain in Rochester, producing the handmade, bespoke kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms and furniture for both of our showrooms. Your Burlanes furniture really is handmade by us, here in the UK.
Burlanes Chelmsford will be showcasing all of our latest handmade furniture collections, including our three bespoke kitchen styles, fitted bedroom furniture, bathrooms and living areas such as a boot room, dining area, a breakfast pantry and a utility room / laundry. We also have an extensive library of Ca'Pietra natural stone flooring and encaustic flooring on display, and are delighted to be an authorised Cosentino Elite showroom, showcasing Silestone and Dekton worktops. On display will also be a Mercury range oven in Snowdrop, a fully functioning Quooker boiling-water tap, a stunning Hurlingham bath and a working BORA induction cooktop, with regular demonstrations, lighting and other home accessories.
Burlanes Chelmsford will be open Monday to Friday, 10am - 5pm, and Saturday 10am - 4pm.
Finally, on behalf of the whole Burlanes team, we would like to thank our customers, past and present, for your continued support of a small independent business.
