mbi has been established in Kendal for over 30 years, successfully furnishing the businesses of Cumbria (and beyond).

Margaret Barrow, Sales Director and the face of mbi, started out in the family business and developed the office furniture department into the independent company of today, trading as mbi Office Limited.

A lot has changed in that time but we’ve kept our independence, developed our relationships with some great designers and manufacturers and built a reputation for quality and reliability, style and service.

From its showroom and offices on Beezon Road in Kendal, mbi has furnished businesses from the smallest family enterprise to the thriving SMEs and multi-national organisations of Britain’s Energy Coast.

Whatever the commercial requirements of the client and the demands of their space, we offer a tailored service and access to extensive ranges of seating, desking, storage and everything else that you’d expect to find in today’s business environment.
