Our story…

Since the 1950’s the Bridgman name has been synonymous with the supply of luxury furniture for the home and garden. We see furniture as an investment, something that can be passed down through the years, integral in family meals, celebrations with friends and relaxation.Our aim is to consistently deliver the highest quality furniture to all customers whilst providing first class customer service and after sales care. To achieve this we employ furniture experts worldwide and design all of our furniture with 3 main considerations: style, comfort and quality.
