Clerkenwell / Farringdon (EC1)
We have completed a significant number of showroom acquisitions and disposals in the Clerkenwell / Farringdon area (London EC1). This is a relatively new market, where landlords have been able to exploit the naivety of unrepresented occupiers who have been known to pay circa 100% per annum more than others who have taken professional advice.

The commercial furniture industry is driven by the likes of Steelcase and Vitra, with the rest of the marketplace following them by locating in this area. The purchase of chairs, desks, flooring and so on tends to be driven by architects and designers who are reluctant to travel widely with their clients to view what is available to purchase and this area is generally cheaper than the West End where such businesses used to be based.
The majority of furniture manufacturers and retailers therefore position themselves in this fashionable location which contains many high ceilinged buildings. The glass fronted ground floor of such properties is very suitable for furniture showrooms with upper floors providing overflow office space. The area is also a vibrant place to work with comprehensive transport options.
