The Made With Oak story began 12 years ago when our founder, Nadeem, was made redundant from his day job in interiors. Passionate about the industry, he began selling furniture on eBay.
The business started small, on a kitchen table in fact, and grew at quite a pace. Soon, chartered accountant and now co-founder, Maaz, came onboard to manage the books and help with operations.
Eleven years later, business was going well but Maaz and Nadeem wanted to create something a little different. To get inspired our founders ventured to India, Vietnam and China. Whilst in India, they discovered reclaimed furniture made from old fishing boats, which is now known as the Harbour Range. This sustainable approach to manufacturing inspired them and has remained a key part of their sourcing process ever since.
Along with inspiring furniture, our co-founders also wanted to create an online platform that was easy to navigate with a broad, yet carefully selected, range of furniture. A new, customer centric furniture website that would place quality and style at its very core.
The platform quickly took off and their hand-picked ranges proved popular as sales surpassed early expectations. Following this, the Made With Oak team has expanded and we have grown from strength to strength.
Featured in the local press and nominated for an ecommerce award, we attribute our success to putting our customers first and sourcing quality, evergreen furniture designed to last a lifetime.
