Introducing Cornwall’s oldest family run business, Alfred Smith & Son – much more than just a furniture store.
Established in 1811 and recognised as Cornwall’s oldest family run business, Alfred Smith & Son in Penzance is a modern business with a wonderful heritage. Now in their fourth generation and third century of trading, Alfred Smith & Son continues to grow and just this year, the team excitedly unveiled a brand new showroom in Penzance, in partnership with British bed maker, Rest Assured.
Over the years the team have developed a wealth of knowledge on all aspects of furniture retailing, offering expert advice on choosing the right furniture to suit your requirements. This can include anything from sofas and chairs when upgrading your living space, to dining sets, carpets and flooring, soft furnishings and, of course, bedroom furniture, including some of the finest beds and mattresses on the market.
Owner Sue Calvert tells us: “We pride ourselves on our personable customer service. We like to build a rapport with our customers and really look after them, which is why they return time after time.”
If you’ve decided that 2019 is the year to upgrade your bed and bedroom furniture then a visit to the beautiful Penzance showroom comes highly recommended, with over 50 beds, mattresses and divans on display from brands including Hypnos, Relyon, Harrison, Somnus and Simba.

You’ll also benefit from the Rest Assured 60 night comfort trial guarantee, so in the unlikely event that you’re unhappy with your new bed, you can simply return it for something more suitable.
