A kitchen design studio has announced plans to relocate to a new showroom at Sunny Bank Mills in Farsley.
After more than 13 years at their current showroom in Seacroft, Arlington Interiors have announced plans to take over a newly refurbished 4,000 sqft retail unit in the former Farsley textile mill.
Arlington Interiors’ head designer Hayley Reid paid tribute to Sunny Bank Mills owners, the Gaunt family. She said:
“We’re so excited to be involved with such a forward-thinking project. The Gaunts have the vision to make Sunny Bank Mills and, consequently, Farsley even more of a destination than it already is. The building is absolutely beautiful with so many original features, and we think it suits our design ethos perfectly.”
Established in 1829, Sunny Bank Mills had a reputation as one of the finest cloth producers in the world.
Since 1917 it has been owned by the Gaunt family, and is now run by the sixth generation of the Gaunts, cousins John and William.
Sunny Bank Mills has previously been a set for the filming of Emmerdale and Heartbeat, and since 2010 has undergone a multi-million regeneration into a base for a number of artistic and creative businesses.
Bosses are now concentrating on creating a retail wing to the mill.
Arlington Interiors will have 11 kitchens by Kuhlmann and Sheraton on display, with appliances by Miele, Siemens and Neff. Sinks and taps will be by Zip, Quooker and Caple with worktops by Silestone, Dekton and Corian.
They will be moved into the new showroom by Christmas, with plans for a grand opening weekend in early February.
