Another Satisfied Student Union…

We seem to be very popular with universities at the moment, the University of Sussex in Brighton are the latest to order our crate retail display units for their shop. A simple and elegant solution for a small shop, the units can be moved around to provide a range of configurations and of course can be wheels out of the way for cleaning.

Paul, our customer was very satisfied and said: “Thanks for the crates they look great.

A Million Meringues

Remember the last time you had to make a million individual meringues and you were thinking: “How on earth am I going to deliver them to the client?”, well look no further than the team here at Furniture Crates. That’s exactly what Sylvia at Meringue Girls did, she’s the leader of the fastest meringue piping gang in the world. We produced over 200 branded wooden trays for them in 5 days, we were feeling pretty good about ourselves until we saw what the Meringue Girls had to do! They are awesome.
