The Bed Workshop has a new and suitably charming and quirky home at the Grade II Bus Depot in Avonmouth. The team have restored the previously derelict building so that it now houses four showrooms and additional workshop space as well as improved access. As well as producing a wide range of contemporary beds in sustainably sourced pine and oak for more than 30 years, expert antique furniture restorers and cabinet makers Paul Wood and Ned Fitzgerald stock a fascinating range of antique French and early 20th-century furniture including farmhouse beds, tables, chairs and dressers which have been carefully selected from Brittany and Normandy and then lovingly restored. Currently gaining popularity are zinc-topped and industrial/dressmakers’ tables and the Brittany-based buyers are always delighted to source to customers’ specific requirements. There is a wealth of expertise here and The Bed Workshop should be a first port of call for lovers of vintage furniture.
