Luxury furniture brand sold outside administration
The international tax, audit and advisory firm Mazars has announced the sale of the business and assets of Clive Christian Furniture to the manufacture of luxury interiors.
The company, based in Farnworth, Bolton, is a leading supplier of kitchens and furniture to a network of showrooms around the world. Julien Irving of Mazars LLP and Christopher Brindle of Campbell Crossley & Davis have been named co-directors of the company, which took office on April 8.
This follows a period of challenging business conditions, further impacted by well-documented global supply chain issues in the wake of the pandemic, and other macroeconomic forces.
Julien Irving comments: “We are delighted to complete the successful sale to a new owner of such a remarkable British brand. The company was affected by difficult trading conditions. The sale will ensure continuity of operations and the company will retain all of its highly skilled workforce and continue its international business activities.
Phil Cole, Director of Luxury Interiors Manufacturing, adds: “I am delighted to become the owner of Clive Christian Furniture. Clive Christian Furniture is considered the originator of opulent pieces for the home, and that’s not going to change. Synonymous with exceptional quality, craftsmanship and skill, I am proud to continue the work of the company and, in doing so, ensure the continuity of the workforce, suppliers and our global network of dealers and partners.
