50th Anniversity 1974 - 2024

Posted: 08/07/2024

Just around the corner from Nantwich’s bustling main street, Webb House Furnishers beckons with the charm and warmth of a beloved family business. Since Howard Webb opened a small reupholstery shop in Crewe back in 1974, this enterprise has blossomed into a revered furniture retailer. Now celebrating nearly 50 years in business, Webb House has not only transformed a quaint 19th-century red brick building on Mill Street into a delightful 12,000-square-foot showroom spread over three floors, but also expanded with a new branch on Pepper Street in Nantwich earlier this year. The heart of Webb House beats with family values. Howard’s wife, Joan, joined in 1987, bringing a wealth of retail experience. Their children, Rebecca and Neil practically grew up in the aisles of the showroom. Today, they’re integral to the business—Neil manages day-to-day operations and sales, while Rebecca adds a dash of flair to the buying team, also curating the showroom’s look with tasteful accessories and soft furnishings. 

Thanks to their membership in a national buying group, Webb House combines the personal touch of an independent retailer with the clout of a national chain. This enables them to offer an impressive array of heritage brands like Parker Knoll, Stressless, G Plan, and Sherborne, alongside modern collections from Venjakob and Rom. Webb House are committed to personalised service, ensuring every customer’s journey is exceptional. Howard has developed a sophisticated back-office system that integrates with their website, allowing the team to pull up detailed management reports and purchase histories. This helps them provide tailored advice in the showroom, ensuring that every recommendation complements the customer’s personal style and home décor. Joan Webb, with her deep industry knowledge, personally ensures every visitor feels cared for. Her dedication has cultivated a loyal customer base, with many returning since the store first opened. It’s this personal touch that creates a welcoming atmosphere and keeps people coming back. 

As Webb House Furnishers celebrates its 50th anniversary, complete with a snazzy new branch on Pepper Street, it’s clear this place is more than just a furniture store—it’s a showcase of a true family business and an unwavering commitment to quality. This is more than just a shop; it’s a place where passion, dedication, and a promise of exceptional furnishings have made Webb House a cherished part of Cheshire for the last 50 years.

Webb House Furnishers acquisition of a historic building in Nantwich has infused new life into one of the town’s most iconic structures. The newly established Pepper Street store, once the home of Bratt’s represents a significant development in the town’s commercial landscape.

This expansion marks Webb House second retail location in Nantwich, complementing the Mill Street shop, opened in 1994 by Howard and Joan Webb after re-locating from Mill Street Crewe. Encompassing three floors and 10,000 square feet , it has served the Nantwich community well over the years. The addition of the Pepper Street store further extends their reach, adding an impressive 7,000 square feet of retail space. This expansion not only broadens the range of products offered but also enhances the shopping experience for their customers. 

The Pepper Street store, with its three-floor layout and accessible lift, is a testament to the Webb family’s commitment to traditional, comfort-oriented furniture. This new location boasts a collection of esteemed brands like Stressless, G-Plan, Parker Knoll, Celebrity and Sherborne, offering a variety of reclining furniture including lift & rise. Known for their exceptional customer service and aftercare, Webb House continues to uphold these standards at their new location. 

The opening of the Pepper Street store is the culmination of the Webb family’s dedication and passion. Howard, Joan and Neil have carefully selected the inventory, while Rebecca, with her expertise in interior design, has beautifully arranged the showroom. Her skill in selecting accessories and soft furnishings, available for purchase, adds an extra layer of appeal to the store. Howard and Joan bring nearly fifty years of industry experience to the Pepper Street location, offering invaluable guidance to customers seeking both comfort and style in their furniture choices. 

Adding to their charm as an independent family-run business, Webb House is part of a national buying group. This membership provides them with the competitive edge often associated with larger national companies, allowing them to offer a wide range of products at competitive prices. 

The spacious Pepper Street location, focusing on comfort furniture, enables the Mill Street shop to expand its contemporary furniture offerings. The Mill Street store is poised to offer a range of modern and stylish furnishings. Rebecca’s growing prominence in the interior design community, bolstered by her popular Instagram account ‘Insidenumber5’, ensures that customers will find a carefully curated selection of fashionable sofas, chairs, dining sets, and an extensive variety of beds and bedroom furniture. This blend of traditional and contemporary, coupled with a commitment to quality and customer service, positions Webb House as a cornerstone of style and comfort in Nantwich.

Sleep Well: A guide to selecting the perfect mattress

Posted: 11/08/2023

Choosing the right mattress for the best night's sleep...

Selecting the correct mattress is paramount to ensure a restful night's sleep. 

Investing in a mattress that aligns with your specific sleep requirements is crucial. Therefore, the significance of purchasing a mattress tailored to your needs cannot be overstated. 

Here are some valuable pointers to aid you in making an informed decision:

1. Know Your Sleep Preferences: 

Consider whether you prefer a firm, medium or soft mattress. 

This largely depends on personal preference and any specific back or sleep issues you may have. 

2. Understand Different Mattress Types: 

Pocket Sprung: Springs wrapped in individual fabric pockets, providing independent movement and reducing motion transfer. 

Memory Foam: Conforms to your body shape, providing excellent pressure relief.

Latex: Known for it's durability, comfort, and hypoallergenic properties. 

Hybrid/Combination: These combine different materials, like coils and foam, to offer a mix of benefits.

Open Coil Sprung: A classic design with a series of connected springs. 

3. Consider Your Sleeping Position: 

Side Sleepers generally prefer slightly softer mattresses to cushion their shoulders and hips.  

Back Sleepers tend to suit a medium-firm mattress to support the spine. 

Stomach Sleepers need a firmer mattress to prevent the spine from curving unnaturally.

4. Check for Support and Comfort: 

A good mattress should provide both support and comfort. 

5. Consider Allergies:  

If you have allergies, look for hypoallergenic materials. 

Some mattresses are designed to resist allergens such as dust mites.

6. Test in store: 

Whenever possible, lie down on the mattress in the store. 

Spend several minutes in your typical sleeping positions to see how it feels. 

7. Research Brands: 

Look for reputable mattress brands known for quality and durability. 

8. Consider Motion Isolation: 

If you have a partner who moves a lot during the night, you may want a mattress with good motion isolation to prevent disturbances.

By following these expert tips, you'll increase the likelihood of finding a mattress that suits your needs and provides the comfort and support necessary for a restful sleep.

Grace by At The Helm

Posted: 07/08/2023


Let's style our Grace collection...  

Grace by At The Helm is a contemporary reinterpretation of the timeless chesterfield design. This collection exudes sophistication with its sleek, clean lines and deep tufted detailing along the arms, seat and backrest.  

Now to elevate your room by adding carefully curated elements that complement your furniture to create a truly beautiful space… 

Start by choosing artwork that resonates with your personality and complements the overall colour scheme of your room.  Then introduce a touch of nature and freshness by incorporating greenery into your styling. Add potted plants or a vase with fresh flowers to add a pop of colour.  

The key to achieving a well put together space lies in the selection of accessories. Use an assortment of soft furnishings, playing with different textures, colours and patterns. Then incorporate items which add interest, such as books, a tray, pots and ornaments.  

Lastly, lighting plays a pivotal role in setting the mood and ambience of any room. Consider installing a combination of floor lamps, table lamps and perhaps even a stylish chandelier to create layers of lighting.

Let's take a closer look at Becky's Living room from @insidenumber5

Before the renovations began, this space was a blank canvas...

Becky decided to fill the expansive walls with full height panelling, which was then painted in 

Farrow & Ball Purbeck Stone to create a cosy feel to the room.

Over to the furniture and accessories, Becky selected a beautiful mix of tones and textures, then used larger scale pieces of furniture like our statement coffee table to finish the look.

Using Panelling in your home

Posted: 01/06/2023

Panelling is a great way to incorporate a traditional and yet very contemporary feel into your home. Although it may look like an expensive addition to your space, panelling can be a low cost option to add a three-dimensional look, and its easier than you might think!

In our showroom (pictured right) we have used a dado style panelling. This style works very well in either a living room, bedroom or up a staircase and usually consists of rectangular shapes of wood fixed onto the wall. These aren’t often overlapping and are quite sparse in their design too, yet create a stunning effect.

You'll need to measure up for how much panelling is required and also consider the required thickness. When you have all your equipment you can follow these easy steps:

1. Fix your panelling frame to the wall with either glue or hammer and nails

2. Make sure each of your squares are exactly the same dimensions and are the same width apart

3. Use a spirit level each time to make sure the lats are straight before you adhere them to the wall

4. Caulk any areas that need it and sand down afterwards so its smooth

5. Lightly dampen a sponge and apply to the panelling before you then apply an acrylic primer - use 2 coats of the primer

6. Now you are ready to paint! We would recommend at least 2 coats

And voila! Its as simple as that!

Stressless Stella 2.5 Seater Sofa ROM Vegas Modular Sofa

Autumn Trends & Colours 2021

We love the comfort and cosiness of the autumn season. We have seen a resurgence of the autumnal colours - ochre and burnt orange in our furnishings. These colours ooze warmth, making them the ideal accent colours for the colder months ahead. We like to mix them with gold accessories and dark wood. Earthy tones of olive and terracotta, create a tranquil haven for you to retreat to. The colour ochre will really brighten up a room - if it is teamed with neutral colours surrounding it, it really works.

On the top left adjacent, we have the Stressless Stella 2.5 Seater Sofa in a Copper Leather. This sofa features an adjustable headrest and as its modular it is available as a corner suite or in many different configurations. 

On the bottom left we have the ROM Vegas - another modular sofa, available as a singular sofa, corner or u-shape, with adjustable back and headrests. Available in a range of fabrics and leathers.

Speaking of fabrics, velvet has been having a moment for quite some time and we still love it. A look to be savoured and admired, we have a selection of dining chairs in quilted velvet which look super stylish. If velvet isn't your thing, all our products come in a wide range of fabrics and leathers - you will be spoilt for choice!

With innovations in technology, the workplace is becoming an increasingly flexible environment, allowing for many people to access their work on-the-go. As a result of this, more and more people are choosing to work from home, the home office has become an important place in the home, it is also a good place for the children to do their homework. So if you are lucky enough to have a home office or a study, then here are the main things to consider:

How to care for your Beds

Posted: 01/06/2023

Just like all our furniture, our beds are designed to withstand general wear and tear. However, we recommend that you follow our advice to keep your bed in top condition for as long as possible to ensure maximum sleep quality throughout the natural life of your bed.

  • Do not sit on the edge of your mattress for long periods of time as this can affect its shape. • Use mattress handles, if provided, and do not overload divan bed drawers.
  • Check that the legs and castors are tightened fully from time to time.
  • Turn down the bed clothes every morning to allow the bed to cool down and breathe.
  • If you have bought a "No Turn" mattress, with a single sleeping surface, e.g. Memory Foam, Latex, Pillow Top and Anti-slip mattress, it is important that you rotate your mattress regularly. For all other mattresses it is important that you turn and rotate your mattress regularly once a week for the first two or three months and then monthly thereafter.
  • Turning will prolong the life-span of your mattress. When turning your mattress please do not allow it to bang or fall against the side of the divan, as this may damage the spring system. Some assistance may be required.
  • Take care when turning your mattresses; do it with someone else especially if your mattress is particularly heavy.
  • Frequent turning and plumping reduces natural dips and 'nesting' in spring interior mattresses.
  • The drawers within a drawer divan are usually designed to hold lightweight items, such as bedlinen, and should not be overloaded. Maximum weight: Mini drawers - 7kg, Standard drawers - 15kg.
  • Protect your mattress using a mattress cover which will protect it from coming into contact with body moisture or other liquids. Do not use detergents or chemical cleaners. Using detergents or chemical cleaners on your mattress is likely to damage the fabric and stitching. 

 Following this advice will ensure you enjoy many a good nights sleep on your bed we wish you sweet dreams!!


How to care for your Upholstery Furniture

Posted: 01/06/2023

This week we give you some top tips on how to care for your upholstered furniture. Soft upholstered furniture gets just as dusty and dirty as cabinet furniture - the difference is you can't always see it.

  • Try to keep pets off the upholstery and be careful of sharp objects such as belt buckles, toys and watch straps snagging the fabric. If snags do occur, carefully cut off the loose ends with scissors or tuck back in - do not pull them under any circumstances
  • Strong sunlight can cause fabrics to fade, so try to position your sofas and chairs out of direct sunlight
  • Sitting on the front edges of cushions or on the arms of furniture may cause distortion or damage, so avoid this at all costs
  • Velvet and chenille fabrics have a raised surface texture which is prone to flattening and shading, so it is important that you understand this characteristic before purchasing a suite in this material
  • Wood or decorative facings require minimal maintenance, and should be occasionally wiped with a damp cloth to remove dust. Do not use spray polishes or solvent cleaners, as these can have a damaging effect on both the facings and adjoining fabric
  • Caster cups are useful to reduce indentations on carpets and wood flooring
  • Vacuum or brush clean your upholstery weekly to remove accumulated dirt, which can cause colours to look faded or dull
  • Plump the cushions at the end of every day of use, particularly those filled with feather or fibre, and also smooth out the surface to prevent permanent creases being formed
  • Where you can, turn the cushions regularly to equalise wear 

 So there you have it, a few things to consider to ensure the longevity of your upholstered sofas and chairs. Next time we will cover the best ways to care for your cabinet furniture, so keep your eyes peeled for that one!


How to care for your Leather Furniture

Posted: 01/06/2023

We have decided to write a series of blogs about how to care for your furniture and being a highly reputable family furniture business that’s been around for 40 years, we reckon we know what we’re talking about! This week ‘How to care for your Leather Furniture’ we'd like to offer our top tips on how to get the best from your leather furniture and ensure its longevity. In the following weeks we will cover Upholstery Furniture, Cabinet Furniture and Beds! Leather is a natural product and will always display traces of its origin such as brands, scars, creases and growth. These hallmarks add character to the suite and do not affect the wearing qualities of the product. Leather is highly resilient and durable, and over time, develops a patina that increasingly enhances its appeal.

  • Always protect your suite from direct sunlight, as this will accelerate the natural ongoing discolouration process. 
  • On pigmented leather, dust should be removed by vacuuming and wiping with a slightly damp cloth, using a solution of warm water and mild soap on a regular basis. Never use abrasives such as household polish, which may damage the treated surface of the leather.
  • Suede, nubuck and aniline leathers require particular care, as they lack a protective coating. Use products specifically designed for these types of finish and follow instructions carefully. Always test any cleaning process on an unseen area.
  • Never place leather furniture against any heating source such as a radiator. To remove spillages, do not rub into the leather as this will cause staining.
  • Liquids should be quickly raised from the leather by using the edge of absorbent paper towels and then dabbing the area lightly with clean towels.
  • Seat, arm and back cushions should, where possible, be regularly plumped up to maintain the shape of your suite.
  • Try to avoid sitting on the edges of cushions or arms, as this may cause uneven wear and distortion of the padding and leather. Certain non-colourfast clothing such as denim can stain light coloured leather if it comes into regular contact.
  • Sharp objects may scratch the surface. Caster cups are useful to reduce indentations on carpets and wood flooring. Strong sunlight can cause leather to fade and crack.

So that’s all for this week, next time we will talk about how to care for your Upholstery Furniture. In the meantime, if you need any additional help or advice, feel free to call in to our store or telephone us to speak to one of our friendly and knowledgeable staff.
