After running a local hotel and, with a background in property development, Rob and Nikki eventually fell in love with furniture and design, leading them to go on and manage a chain of shops before setting up the Inspired Rooms Furniture Superstore.

The Furniture Retailer

Rob and Nikki took the decision in early 2017 to merge with other local furniture business, Jeff Williams, in order to create a one-stop shop for all your furniture needs. The merger has allowed Jeff Williams to retire, whilst still continuing his business; For Rob and Nikki, the extra space has allowed them to expand their range and the flexibility to style their range as they want.

Inspired Rooms Furniture Superstore can now be found in Market Street, Torquay (Directions).

Inspired Rooms Furniture shop sells an exceptional range of top quality oak furniture, painted furniture, Oak furniture, beds & mattresses, sofas, lighting and accessories such as bedding and cushions, all competitively priced.

Love your High Street

Inspired Rooms has been an active supporter of Love your High Street and it's clear they're really passionate about all things local:

We work and live in Torquay and as a local independent retailer, we employ local people to serve our customers, maintain our shop and deliver our furniture. When the phone rings, you can speak directly to the person that served you in the shop, the owner of the business, the driver who will deliver to you. As a result, we are able to offer a very personalised customer service experience and we greatly value the relationships we have established with our local customers over the years. We also work closely with several local hotels, B&Bs and care homes. For us, shopping local is at the core of our business and we ourselves shop locally to support our community. Wherever possible we also buy British made products and all of our sofas and mattresses are made and supplied by reputable British companies.
