From 800 Stores in the 80s to One of the UK's Leading Online Furniture Retailers

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - March 15, 2013) - From Comet, Jessops, Clinton Cards, HMV and most recently Dreams, retailers are struggling to make their format work, with high rents and less visitors passing through their doors. Either those retailers are not providing a great customer experience in their stores, or the customer wants a different experience such as online shopping. FADS was similar to the large companies mentioned above, having 800 shops in the 80s - the only difference being is that we have changed our business model to suit customer demand.

Due to the rise of out of town shopping, FADS adapted their business model by reducing the number of stores, and launching an online presence that allows FADS to offer consumers a larger product range to suit various budgets. At FADS we have also adapted our product range; yes we sell wallpaper, but modern and funky wallpaper rather than your 1970s look! We also sell modern furniture to suit many styles and budgets that can be delivered next day. Modern bedroom furniture is hard to find, but FADS feature a compact and unique range that is easy to navigate via their simple, easy to use website - not to mention, their prices are cheaper than high street stores.

Whereas retailers of late have failed to change their way, FADS have been pro-active in their approach which has led to growth in recent years and are now one of the UK's leading online furniture stores with over 4,000 products to choose from.

We make it our mission to keep with the times therefore offer free delivery on everything, and next day delivery on most products. If next day delivery is not available on that particular product, our carrier will contact the customer prior to delivery to arrange a date and time instead of waiting in all day.

At FADS we aim to create a hassle free shopping and delivery experience.


FADS.CO.UK stock a wide range of modern and contemporary dining, occasional, bedroom, kids & garden furniture that suit your living style and budget. Many of our products are from leading manufacturers and brands, plus our vast product range is inspired by our in house team who ensure our customers have this season's up to date look. We offer next day delivery on most items with various service levels to suit your needs.

FADS first opened their doors in 1945 in Kent selling paint & wallpaper and in its peak featured 800 stores. Since then FADS has grown into one of the UK's most known retailers. In recent years, FADS has moved online selling our quality and unique furniture.
