When the store first opened in 1862, furniture arrived by rail and was delivered to the shop by hand cart to their single store in Fowey. In 1920 owner Jesse Julian, keen to move with the times, bought the first motorised van in the entire village, a Model T Ford with solid rubber tyres that enabled him to deliver furniture as far as London (it only took three days!).
The company has continued to innovate and change to meet the needs of their customers, but their commitment to great quality and service remains the same. It’s still a family affair, many of the team have been with the company for over 25 years, giving them an intimate knowledge of the furniture sector and enabling them to best meet the needs of their customers.
Service is the real difference at Julian Foye – it’s always personal and aimed at making your life simpler. Delivery is free of charge throughout the whole of Cornwall and West Devon and staff are happy to phone you shortly before arrival so you don’t need to take a whole day off work. They’ll unpack your new furniture and place it just where you want it. You can also pre-arrange to have your old furniture taken away, all in one simple move.
As well as furniture, Julian Foye also offer carpets, curtains and soft furnishings so you can achieve a complete look and create a coordinated room you’ll love. Their latest innovation is to offer a complete interior design service with advisors on hand to help you design your scheme and bring together complimentary colours and fabrics. They offer miniature samples of curtains you can take home and trial at home and customers benefit from the expert advice of specialists who have overseen many interior design schemes to completion.
