Essex Interiors supplies products for Alan Partridge film set

Essex Interiors was the furniture supplier of choice for part of the set of 2013 Alan Partridge's movie, Alpha Papa.

On 7th August, this critically-acclaimed movie-first for the much-loved fictional TV and radio presenter, Alan Partridge, shot to the UK box office's number one spot in its opening weekend.

Filmed in Norfolk and South London, a number of scenes feature the infamous DJ working in his office, where he is surrounded by Essex Interiors' classically-styled antique reproduction furniture. In total, the company supplied a captain's chair, a Regency-style leather-top desk, a mahogany bookcase and two reproduction filing cabinets.

"I was asked if I could deliver these items to their South London studio within a week,” says owner of Essex Interiors, Christopher Court. "Our Regency style reproduction furniture is a very popular line, so immediate supply is never a problem and we always pull out the stops to meet deadlines, whoever the customer is. Within the week I’d personally delivered everything they needed.”
