THE HOME OF FURNITURE since 1893
It's exactly 130 years ago this year that Mr Harry Ponsford founded the family business selling household goods from a barrow in Sheffield. By the 1930s, Harry’s business had flourished so much that he was able to move into an impressive shop on Sheffield's London Road — part of the same premises in our ‘Victorian Building’ that we still occupy today.
With each successive generation of the Ponsford family, the business has evolved and grown; so much so that by the early 2000s an entirely new building was required — the ‘Millennium Building’ — which is linked by a covered walkway called the Golden Jubilee bridge. Spanning both sites, it's a symbolic link between Ponsford’s humble origins and our position today as one the most respected retailers of premium furniture in the north of England.
While furniture trends come and go, we still uphold those same values that Harry believed in: quality craftsmanship, innovative design and excellent customer service. Ponsford remains an independent, family-run business and we're proud to have been supplying the people of Sheffield, South Yorkshire and beyond for over a century.
We look forward to giving you a warm welcome in store soon.
