Welcome to Blacks of Sopwell. Established in 1989, we’ve been making quality solid wood furniture for over 20 years. We’re a Hertfordshire based, family-run business, and personally ensure that the build and finish of each of our products is of the highest quality. Whether you’re looking for a classic or modern style, or something a little different, we are here to help.
We’re still the preferred stockist of Starbay Furniture in the UK. Made from solid rosewood with brass fittings and beautifully finished, Starbay is inspired by original designs found on the great Luxury Ocean liners.
Furniture isn’t just about looks, of course. We personally ensure that the build and finish of each of our products is of the highest quality. Our handmade furniture is built by experienced craftsmen using only the finest materials, sustainably sourced. In addition we stock ranges by leading furniture makers from around the world. Tongue and groove drawer-bases and cabinet-backs ensure your furniture will have a long life – traditional dovetailed joints come as standard.
All our furniture comes individually finished, through the use of different stains, waxes and lacquers. Or, if you're feeling creative, furniture can be bought untreated so you can apply your own finishing touches. This site showcases just a few of the hundreds of pieces of wood furniture we can make. Plus a few clocks, mirrors and vintage items too.
