When Barney Willis and Nigel Gambier started Willis & Gambier as a bed designer and importer in 1990 they could never have anticipated the growth of the pine furniture market. Within 8 years they had successfully taken control of 14% of the UK bunk bed market.
In 1998, the brand shifted direction and was repositioned into the premium furniture market selling wooden bedroom and dining room furniture.
Now our highly experienced teams of designers and technicians use their expertise, imagination and passion to create traditional and contemporary designs which provide both style and practicality in any setting.
Our core values are to produce beautifully designed furniture using appropriate woods and a mixture of solid and veneered finishes to offer the customer long lasting furniture at affordable prices.
With over 135 collections created over the last three years, we have become a global company with a well established reputation for excellent quality and service and we are one of the main suppliers of premium furniture in the UK, to many of the leading retailers in the UK and Republic of Ireland.
Now managed by Samson Holding Ltd., Willis & Gambier continue to design and manufacture furniture and are market leaders in premium bedroom and dining collections.
Samson Holding Ltd. is one of the leading wholesalers in the United States residential furniture industry and probably the worlds largest manufacturer of furniture, employing over 14,000 people worldwide.
Samson Holding Ltd. produce and sell a wide range of furniture under a host of brands, including Universal Furniture, Legacy Classic Furniture, Craftmaster Furniture, Pennsylvania House, Samson International, and licensing programs such as Better Homes & Gardens, and Paula Deen.
We hope our website gives you a sense of the style and passion that is Willis & Gambier.
