    • "Brilliant quality items…"+

      From walking past the shop in Matlock some years ago I promised myself I would have an Indigo bed. We brought our friends from Bedford to visit the store and they purchased before we did and were more than pleased. In 2013 we bought our beautiful Indigo bed to take pride of place in our church conversion home, the bed has been fantastic and hopefully all being well we plan to be visiting again in the coming months to look at a couple of new sofas. We love the ethos of this lovely company, happy pleasant staff, and beautiful, brilliant quality items something worth saving for every time.

    • "The quality of the product was outstanding…"+

      I would like to say a massive thank you to all the team at Indigo Furniture. Special thanks go to a very patient and helpful Jessica. Thanks also to Helen, Ali, Kyle, Scott and anyone else I may not have mentioned. After looking at the website for a year I finally took the plunge and bought a Merchant's Plank Bed and Georgian Plank Panel Bed without having ever seen them or any of your products. Due to the distance I did not visit the showroom so was rather hesitant when deciding to make a purchase as what you see online is not always what you get. However, I was so pleasantly surprised as not only was the service impeccable from start to finish, the quality of the product was outstanding. So much so that less than six months later I went back for more. My daughter and I are very very happy with our new beds and mattresses that I cannot see myself ever going elsewhere again.

    • "Beautifully made furniture..."+

      Beautifully made furniture and carefully put together by the great guys that delivered. Thank you for taking your shoes off every time you entered my home (cream carpets) a first class service.
