BREXIT update! Act now and beat post-referendum price increases

In light of the recent EU referendum vote and the marginal victory of 'BREXIT', the pound has struggled against the euro and has just reached a new 31 year low. The pound is expected to undergo a slow recovery and as a result of this our European suppliers have issued warnings that their prices will increase dramatically (between 10 to 15%) in the next few weeks**. This includes award winning and iconic brands such as Knoll, E15, Moooi, Gan and Zeitraum to name but a few.

But hold on, there is still good news! We have a HUGE summer sale currently underway which has many brands discounted 15% at pre-brexit prices! Also available are a range of outlet items, including ex-display furniture & lighting pieces, that are discounted up to 50%.

Make sure you don't miss out on the piece of furniture you have coveted for so long because of the recent BREXIT vote. See a range of iconic furniture and lighting below that will be affected by the price increase and act now to save!

Thank You Messages

I have rarely experienced such excellent quality advice, support and reliability. Your staff communicate effectively and helpfully. I am a truly satisfied customer. I love my String Shelving and I will not hesitate to return to Utility for my next purchase. Thank you!

Your customer service has been fantastic. I'm seriously impressed. Really pleased to be able to place the bigger order and make your time worthwhile. I think I need to send you a medal!

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

Excellent customer service and immediate response to enquiry (live chat). Very happy every time used Utility both online and on high street.

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.

Comment: I just wanted to say that Esther on the checkout in the L1 store made my day today she was so friendly
