Independent retailer Authentic Furniture has officially opened at Birmingham shopping and lifestyle destination, Mailbox. The 3,000 sqft store is the retailer’s second showroom, and can be found within the 20,000 sqft Home at Mailbox section on Level 1, alongside Heal’s, Made.com, BoConcept, Calligaris and Design Quarter. 

Authentic Furniture offers a broad range of handmade sofas, living room and dining room furniture. MD Tim Lowry says: “At Authentic Furniture, we’re committed to providing our customers with the highest standards of quality, service, and overall retail experience. We feel a great synergy with Mailbox in this respect and are thrilled to have opened our second showroom in the centre.

“The showroom is an extremely important part of our customer journey due to the nature of our products and the customisation options available, and we know that Mailbox’s easily accessible location will provide us with a platform to engage with a brand-new customer base. It’s an incredibly exciting time to be moving to the UK’s second city, thanks to the significant level of investment and number of large corporations choosing to relocate there, and we’re looking forward to welcoming people to the new store very soon.”

Mailbox’s home and interiors offer also includes Castle Fine Art, Kitchen Gallery SieMatic, Harvey Jones Kitchens and iLite Lighting.

Melanie Taylor, head of retailer relations at developer Milligan, says: “We’re extremely proud that Mailbox is now the leading destination for furniture and interiors both in Birmingham and across the region, providing our customers with a whole home styling solution on Level 1. We’re confident Authentic Furniture’s range of beautifully made and design-led furniture will resonate with our customers, and are delighted to welcome them to our market-leading collection of brands here at Mailbox.”
