About Cloud 9 Art Deco Furniture Specialists
How We Started
Cloud 9 has very much been a family run business for the last 40 years. Terry Davies was initially a car interior specialist working not only on classic and vintage cars but servicing local car dealers and private customers with small seat repairs etc. The trimming aspect is still in place even today together with contract work making hoods for kit car maunfactirers. One claim to fame was re trimming the original Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in our workshop to celebrate the cars 21st birthday back in 1988.
Some years later Terry with his wife Lynne decided to expand the business and together with their love of the Art Deco period created Cloud 9 Art Deco. In the beginning the focus was putting their many years of upholstery experience and skills to good use by displaying an original reupholstered 1930s 3 piece suite and armchairs at Art Deco fairs up and down the UK.
Renowned for taking every opportunity, it soon became apparent that customers wanted to choose their own colour and material hence opening up a totally new direction for the business. They decided to store all of the original Art Deco soft furniture so that they could offer customers the option to view all the varied original 1930s stock, select their preferred style and shape of suite, chaise or daybed and then choose their own colours etc. An experience that Cloud 9 believe to be unique.
From this the business continued to grow and become more and more successful enabling them to add dining suites to the inventory before very quickly progressing to stocking the whole array of Art Deco furniture that you can possibly think of from coffee tables and sideboards to cocktail bars, bookcases, china display cabinets, desks and bedroom suites.
The website www.cloud9artdeco.co.uk became firmly positioned at the top of Google worldwide and consequently brought in repeat customers from all over the world, even Film and TV companies who need original 1930s furniture for period dramas etc. They have also featured on Grand Designs trade secrets to demonstrate the skills used to reupholster and restore/repolish the pieces.
Where are we today
Well as Terry and Lynne say they are no spring chickens anymore and in January 2012 decided to take a back seat in the running of the business and handing the reins over to their daughter Donna and Son in law Gordon who have massive plans to expand the business taking both the website and stock to a whole new level. With the continued help and support from Mum and Dad, Donna and Gordon will ensure that they maintain the passion and ethos behind Cloud 9 which is treasured by both the family and many of its customers. They have the enthusiasm and motivationcombined with knowledge and experience of owning and running other businesses to ensure that Cloud 9 Art Deco continues to develop and expand in the future. With an outstanding reputation for quality of work, Dad Terry and small Cloud 9 team are continuing to do all the reupholstryand repolishing, guaranteeing that the highest standards are retained.
