Leeds Duo Wins FSB Award
Leeds based Cameron and Declan Christie, the owners and minds behind UK Trade Furnishings, were named on the Forbes 30 under 30 list, winning the FSB Young Entrepreneur of the Year award 2018. This award is thought to be the first of many to follow this year.
“We’re beyond excited to have been given this award. Luxury Flooring and Furnishings continues to progress at every turning point and were looking forward to many great years of trading ahead,” commented on the achievement Cameron, Managing Director.
Declan, Managing Partner, also shared his thoughts about the award: “Winning this award is just another step in the right direction for us. Having left school at 16, both myself and Cameron are proud to say we are following our dream. With more award nominations lined up, we hope to extend the achievements of UK Trade Furnishings even further.”
Luxury Flooring and Furnishings is one of the UK’s leading online flooring retailers, offering a wide range of products. The business turns over in the region of £8 million per year at present. Deciding to expand their portfolio further, the duo launched in 2017 Tile Monkey and Rug Mountain under the UK Trade Furnishing parent company.
The company is experiencing a growing demand for their services across Europe; therefore the website for Luxury Flooring and Furnishings has been translated to further increase their availability online. Similarly, both Tile Monkey and Rug Mountain are following in their predecessors footsteps and are becoming increasingly busier with every quarter.
Cameron and Declan are cousins and they grew up locally in Harrogate. Having left school at the age of 16, both of them worked hard to pursue their dream of becoming business owners. After noticing there was a gap in the market for an online supplier of luxury wood floor, Luxury Flooring and Furnishings was created in 2013.
