About Bedsite & Appleyards

Visit us at our showroom in Goyt Mill, Marple, SK6 7HX

Welcome to the new and improved 'Bedsite.co.uk' Appleyard Interior's official internet trading name.

Appleyard Interiors is a family-run business that has been intertwined with the furniture trade since 1879. After starting out as manufacturers we have had multiple stores over the years but our main stem came from our renowned Liverpool retail store. We are passionate about what we do, and as our trade in the North West strengthens, we look forward to keeping up with the ever-evolving interior concept our hi-tech society dictates.

We understand that the real value is in the quality of the goods; this is why we deal with some of the best furniture makers, upholsterers and bed manufacturers in the UK and Europe. Manufacturers include Hypnos, a UK bed manufacturer in possession of a Royal Warrant; Wade Upholstery whose life time guarantee and rich history of manufacturing and upholstering lounge suites, is a labour of love; and Coach House who continue to define and set the tone for the eclectic mix of furnishings available in the UK and beyond.

We hope you find our new site informative and easy to shop around. Should you want any assistance don’t hesitate to call us and we will be more than happy to help.

What’s in a name?

Appleyard Interiors – Appleyard (noun) = the company descendent, Mr George E Appleyard; Interiors (adj.) = the inside of a building or room, with respect to design and decoration. Indeed, with this new name, we offer complete transparency in what we do and what we aim for. We have the past that strengthens the future in the form of our history as manufacturers of fine furniture and we have the future that strengthens the past by way of interior design.

Indeed, we are excited about our move to Marple and are happy to be exploring the added diversity of interior design – an obvious extension based on the longevity of our business and the experience that comes with it.

The launch to take us deeper into the 21st Century

The original Bedsite.co.uk was officially launched in November 2006 – a “keeping up with the Jones’s” act to embark on the worldwide web.

Bedsite brought with it a wealth of new ranges and products for a customer base that extended beyond the North West, and an element of pride beyond the showroom. Our reference to pride stems from our passion to provide a user friendly e-commerce environment where customers can gather information and ideas before looking to ultimately make a purchasse.

Five years is a long time in the land of web, and after receiving plenty of customer feedback, we decided there was a need modernise our approach, the ease of navigation and the overall appearance of the Bedsite. As such, we re-launched Bedsite in 2011 on Magento 1.4 so as to incorporate a new refreshing design and a “shop by” feature for customers whom prefer to shop by an item type or search more specifically for an item rather than being solely focused on a brand or range.

Bedsite website developments have continued with additional features for search and custom options whilst continually updating to the latest versions of Magento every few months. Today we have more than 20,000 products available on the website which acts in harmony with our Marple showroom.

At the end of May 2017 I can report that we have just launched AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) which simply means that our website is running quickly on mobiles and tablets with a slightly more defined layout. We hope this enhances your browsing experience. Bedsite is happily operating on the latest version of Magento 1 and we have a Magento 2 version of the website in long term development. Our move to Magento 2 will only happen when we can replicate the functionality of our existing site on the M2 platform. 3rd party developers have plenty to do :).

Home to Hypnos in the North West

Our dealings with G-Plan extend back over 50 years; the manufacturer’s drive towards succeeding in creating excellent quality Cabinet pieces gives us, and subsequently our customers, the confidence to invest in G-Plan, year in year out.

G-Plan is a long established manufacturer that has been in operation for over 100 years. It was first set up by Ebenezer Gomme in 1898 in the town of High Wycombe, Bucks, at the height of the industrial revolution.

To celebrate our growing business with G-Plan, we have introduced a G-Plan Cabinet studio into our new showroom. The G-Plan Cabinet Studio displays a number of furniture pieces across a complete spectrum of their ranges: Heritage, Fresco, Monet, Matisse, Rembrandt, and Gainsborough – all presented to engage with our customers imagination.

Our studio concept is part of our new plan to give our customers something a little extra when they visit our showroom. We deal with some of the best manufacturers in the industry and we want to celebrate this by displaying an extensive range of their designs for our customers to view.

As our business strengthens and enters 2012, we are confident our showroom will develop to be one that complements the manufacturers we deal with as well as acting as a stimulus for our new interior design service.

Here is looking at Hypnos – the “most comfortable beds in the world”

Hypnos is renowned for manufacturing some of the best beds in the world. In fact, they have recently been rewarded the “best bed manufacturer of 2011” by the National Bed Federation.

The art of bed manufacturing has been perfected by Hypnos over the years, in fact since the Edwardian period - a mere century ago. With their reputable handmade craftsmanship, Hypnos continues to honour their renowned traditional, time-honoured skills to enrich what is "great" in Great British Furniture. With twice-heated springs and luxurious renewable fillings, it is to no surprise these beds have received the prestigious Royal Warrant.

The success of Hypnos and our confidence in their beds – measurable by quality and innovative comfort – has resonated in our showroom. Indeed, an extensive array of Hypnos beds covering each of their ranges can now be seen displayed in our showroom for our customers to try.

A step towards interior design

Well, Interior Design is becoming vastly popular – my husband and I were witness to the extent to which this industry has grown when we attended the 2011 Decorex show in Chelsea, London. The notion of conceptual interiors dictated by the architectural setting is becoming the norm for many homeowners. Indeed, intelligent use of space, clever lighting in rooms, complementary textures and colours – all converge to create an environment that we call home.
