About Us

“We were delighted with the furniture we received from MBI, we wanted a contemporary style to our canteen and Margaret suggested bright, modern options that perfectly matched our theme.


All of our team are delighted with the new facility.

“Dodd & Co have worked with Margaret for a number of years on different projects at both of our offices.


I have always found working with Margaret to be very enjoyable. She is friendly, professional, reliable and proactive considering our needs now and for the future.


Just recently we asked Margaret to design and quote for a complete refurbishment on the 2nd floor of our building to accommodate our growing accounts team. Despite the challenges of an old building with pillars to work around she came up with a modern design which made the most of desk space and utilised all available space with storage, which is exactly what our initial brief had been.


The MBi installation team attended site and worked to strict deadlines and minimised disruption to our working week, working quickly and efficiently to get the job done.


We’re delighted with the results.

“MBI provided us with a complete solution when it came to furnishing our office. They came to visit our premises and introduced us to their range using brochures and catalogues. We were also given sound advice by Margaret on what style would suit our office environment. Once we had made some decisions on the style of furniture, we were presented with some 3D images of our proposed office. This was a great help to visualise how the office would look and it gave us a chance to modify the design prior to placing an order.


The furniture arrived on the agreed delivery date and was assembled by the MBI team with minimal fuss to us. We are very happy with the finished offices and with the service provided by MBI.”

Margaret Barrow from mbi says “We were delighted our tender to revamp Team Furmanites offices was successful -after the recent fire and flooding. Our aim was a consistent theme throughout and the creation of a professional working environment from first impression in reception area through to each and every office and meeting room, the end result speaks for itself”.

“Margaret and her amazing team at MBI have helped us transform our office into a fantastic space for both customers and staff alike. From the planning, through design to the ordering and installation Margaret made the whole project so much easier. We can not recommend MBI highly enough, thank you so much”.

Margaret Barrow from mbi says “We worked on both the back office and flagship branch interiors for this local Building Society, sourcing carpets as well as furniture and planning the full layout and colours too. As with many retail and office premises, the transformation – complete with computers and telephones back in place – needed to be done over a single weekend for the client to carry on with business as usual. When construction problems made that difficult, we found some additional flexibility and ensured that the PBS team could keep working, whatever”.

Margaret Barrow from mbi says “This project was very much colour themed around the client’s branding. We were able to source task chairs, management chairs, reception seating and conference furniture that kept to the corporate colours throughout. We even found a way of moving a large conference table down a small stairway to the lower level meeting room”.

Margaret Barrow from mbi says “In some ways this was a typical project – a tough tendering process, tight deadlines and, part way through, changes to the brief and new budget constraints. We’re pleased with the results and confident that our flexible approach to furnishing the bar and communcal areas of these accommodation facilities will be a good showcase for us in West Cumbria.”

“mbi have been supplying GGG for a number of years and have recently supplied us with new furniture for our office redevelopment. We are very pleased with the latest additions to our offices and break out areas which have also utilized existing furniture creating useful and modern spaces.”

Margaret Barrow from mbi says “We’ve supplied desks and other office furniture to Gilkes over the years and it was good to pull this together for a revamp, adding to the existing desking with matching conference ends and other elements and also creating the soft seating areas, branded with Gilkes’ red.”

“Working with MBI has had a number of benefits for the meeting rooms at Warwick Mill. The furniture that they recommended has been practical, hard wearing and helped to provide the right aesthetics for the meeting rooms.


The service that MBI provided was faultless from start to finish and following their recommendations has proven extremely cost effective.”

Margaret Barrow from mbi says “This project was all about sourcing ranges of seating and tables that would be as flexible and as versatile as possible. The conference chairs are comfortable for longer meetings but also stackable to create space. The Flip-top table tops can be turned, enabling the tables to be moved easily between rooms. Overall, the effect is an efficient and smart conference and meeting facility and, for the team at Warwick Mill, there are added but hidden practical benefits too.”
