In this interview with Design Insider, Andrew describes Curtis’s beginnings in Leeds over 25 years ago and its development into a company known for quality and bespoke hotel furniture. 

Could you tell me about the heritage of Curtis?

Curtis have been making furniture for UK hotels, here in Leeds, for over 25 years. Our first client was Thistle hotels and we still work with, what is now the Clermont Hotel Group, today. We moved to our current factory almost 10 years ago and in that period we have extended the size of our production facility three times.

What sets Curtis apart in the commercial sector?

Could you talk me through 3 key projects you’ve supplied?

How do you develop your products?

Whilst virtually every project we do is for bespoke furniture there are often key themes that run through the furniture. Upon receipt of the client’s instruction we come together as a team to launch the project and discuss each individual piece in detail. With representatives from production, design, sales, purchasing and project management in the meeting we typically have over 50 years of knowledge around that table.

What does the future hold for Curtis?

25 years in and we are more excited than ever. Our business has grown over these years on the back of one principle: Look after the clients and they will return. Our new brochure is littered with photos of projects that we are doing for long established clients, many of whom have come to Curtis more than 10 times for their furniture.
