Working with other local businesses who provide vintage fabrics, and the Jigsaw Furniture Project who carry out re-upholstery work, as well as stocking pieces from local artists and crafts people, Furniture Magpie believe in keeping it local.

‘We don’t buy imported products, and as far as we can we try like to buy and promote things made right here in Devon, and if not is definitely made in the UK’ says Samantha.
