Founded in 2009 as Burlanes by Danny Wood, who partnered with an independent cabinet maker to create furniture, the company acquired its first workshop in 2010 which measured 10m wide.

Changing its name to Arbor Lane Interiors in 2021, the company moved into a 5,000sqft workshop to manufacture its own furniture in 2015.

It doubled the size of its workshop in 2020 to accommodate more projects, updated its spray booths in 2022, and by 2023 Arbor Lane Interiors serviced a network of 16 showroom partners.

A statement issued by the company about the management buyout read: “This marks a significant milestone for us and underscores our commitment to the KBB industry.

“We are grateful for this opportunity and look forward to leading Arbor Lane Ltd into a new phase of growth and success.

“Our vision is clear: to build upon Arbor Lane Interiors’ strong foundation, innovate within our industry, and continue supplying high quality furniture to our valued customers.

“We are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of quality and service that Arbor Lane is known for.

“We extend our heartfelt thanks to Danny and Remi for their support throughout this transition and would like to wish them all the best with their future endeavours.

“We are excited about the future possibilities that lie ahead. Stay tuned as we embark on this exciting journey together!”
