If you’re after some rustic, chunky, solid wood furniture, then you have come to the right place!
Funky Chunky Furniture started up in South Shields, North East England, in early 2013 with the view of creating top quality solid wood furniture for everyone to enjoy. From our humble beginnings, operating part time from a garage and making only one or two shelves per week, to then growing into a small workshop, providing our rustic furniture across the UK and parts of Europe.
Due to our rapid growth the small workshop became too small and we have now expanded into a much larger workshop, just up the river in Jarrow. This grants us the capabilities to generate more jobs and create more new products.
With this in mind, the future of Funky Chunky Furniture is very exciting and we are looking forward to showing you loads more new pieces of rustic furniture very soon!
As the name suggests we do some very chunky furniture, manufactured by our own joiners in our own workshop based the North East of England.
Whether you’d like some rustic living room furniture or chunky bedroom furniture we are sure to have something to suit your needs. Our current product range includes the likes of coffee tables, TV units, dining tables, bed frames, chests of drawers, floating shelves and mantels, with more items and lines to be added in the not too distant future.
The main thing needed to create chunky furniture is chunky wood. The chunky timber we choose is full of beautiful rustic character and features that make each piece truly one of a kind, so you can be sure that no one else will have anything identical to your own.
To make our furniture we use solid pine or solid oak. The pine is used to make the majority of our products, including coffee tables, dining tables and bed frames and the oak is used only to make our oak shelving and mantels. Check the item description of each product if you aren’t sure.
We use an independent review collection service, called Feefo, which allows our customers to leave service and product reviews. In February 2018 we were awarded Feefo’s most prestigious accolade, the Gold Trusted Service Award (following on from being awarded their previous highest accolade in 2016, the Gold Trusted Merchant, and the Gold Trusted Service Award in 2017).
To win this award companies needed to have collected at least 50 reviews in 2017 and achieved a service rating of at least 4.5. We collected 559 reviews with a service rating of 4.9, thanks to our wonderful customers!
Not only that, but in our short time we have also had products featured on national TV - Peter Andre's 60 Minute Makeover - and in magazines - Grazia and Your Home.
Other than supplying direct customers with our chunky wooden furniture we have also worked with plenty of stores, designers and business owners to meet their own work needs.
This involves the likes of large department stores, small shops and mostly local and national stove and fireplace fitters, who constantly return for our solid oak shelving, mantels and rustic floating shelves.
Our workshop is not far from Jarrow town centre in the Viking Industrial Park. This is where we make and dispatch all of our products. We have a showroom in development with some of our most popular items on display, so please feel free to drop by if you’d like to have a look at what we do.
If you plan to come by public transport the Jarrow bus and Metro stations are only a 10-15 minute walk, or if you plan to drive we have plenty of on site parking space available. When you arrive you can enter reception through the front door, simply ring the bell and one of our friendly office staff will be able to help.
