David Phipp House Furnisher is situated 6 miles north of Bournemouth in Ferndown, Dorset where they have been trading for over 44 years. One of the South’s leading Independent Furniture Retailers, the showrooms are still proudly owned by David & Anne Phipp and their two daughters, Susie & Sarah.

David originally started by opening a small second hand furniture shop in Parley Cross in 1972.  In 1980, he expanded by purchasing premises in Glenmoor Road in Ferndown and in 1984, a further shop at Longham.  In 1992, David purchased the Welcome Lodge Hotel on Ringwood Road Ferndown and this was transformed into the showrooms as you see them today.  Over the 44 years, the showroom has grown into one of the most prestigious in the South with over 30,000 sq feet, offering traditional and contemporary furniture including beds and bedroom collections.  Top leading manufacturers are on display including, Duresta, Parker Knoll, Ercol, G-Plan, Stressless, Vi-Spring, Tempur and Somnus. 

The welcoming Balcony Café at the heart of the showroom serves Italian coffee, speciality teas, light lunches and a range of tempting cakes.  A successful addition to their service has been the wheelchair friendly courtesy car, offering the chance for more elderly and infirm customers to visit the showrooms.

The company pride themselves in maintaining very high standards of customer service along with traditional values and an enviable reputation for exceptional quality and choice, all at very competitive prices.  Promotions are regularly held when customers are invited to view new ranges and displays plus taking advantage of special offers.

Whenever you visit, you can be sure of a warm welcome and a professional, courteous service.
