The Stephen Neall Group (a family run business that has been based in Harrogate for 30 years) have recently undertaken a half a million pound refurbishment & fit-out of a 9000sq ft. building in Central Harrogate. The was refurbished with the sole aim of creating a design centre, the heart of which is a mono brand store for one of the world’s leading furniture brand, Poliform.
This mono brand store is the only one outside of London and its exclusivity to the North of England aims to draw clients, interior designers & architects to a Northern hub of design & inspiration.
Stephen Gee, Managing Director of Stephen Neall said: “We are continually pushing the boundaries to create dream homes for private clients and we need an impressive showroom space to showcase day furniture and night furniture that demonstrate our style and quality standards. I’m really excited about the redevelopment of the old Co-op building that I have dreamed of owning for decades, even the new name for the building is exciting. The inspiration for (The Factory) came from Andy Warhol’s original studio in New York that was also called “The Factory” and often known as “The Silver Factory” because of the silver foil used on walls to create reflective light in the studios; likewise we also plan to subtly use silver tin foil somewhere in the building along with a collection of pop art images of the Team Stephen Neall. The Factory in Harrogate isn’t a shrine to an iconic artist but will be a subtle nod to his creativity, a design studio and hopefully Harrogate’s hang out for interior designers, architects, of course the discerning public, and even club Stephen Neall from time to time. Our business continually evolves and the new premises will provide us with the extra space we desperately need. Our design teams are amongst the best and we have some really exciting plans for the building, I can’t wait to see it completed and rocking with activity.”
