Birmingham’s premier shopping and lifestyle destination, the Mailbox, is adding to its extensive home furnishings offering with the arrival of leading bespoke kitchen designer and manufacturer, Harvey Jones, this spring.
Harvey Jones Kitchens will open on Level 1 at the Mailbox in May, sitting alongside the impressive home furnishings and interiors department which includes MADE.COM. Heal’s, BoConcept, Calligaris, The Design Quarter and Wesley Barrell, in addition to Kitchen Gallery, Castle Fine Art, and iLite Lighting, an authorised Swarovski Lighting retailer.
With 31 showrooms across the UK, Harvey Jones has been making bespoke kitchens from its Cambridgeshire workshop for more than thirty-five years, and within that time has crafted more than fifteen thousand handmade kitchens. The brand is known for its understated, premium-quality cabinetry, combined with thoughtful design, service, and value for money. All kitchens are designed and made to order.
John Curwen, CEO at Harvey Jones Kitchens said: “We are delighted to be opening in the Mailbox, Birmingham. We have been keen to bring our furniture to the area for some time and have been looking forward to the right location becoming available. The site offers the perfect location for our customer demographic and provides a different model from our usual high street showrooms. It is the key premium shopping destination in the city. We’re hopeful that this showroom, our 32nd, will be another successful addition to our portfolio, and we look forward to starting a number of exciting kitchen projects across the area.”
Simon Samuels, Partner at Brockton Capital, joint owners of the Mailbox with Milligan, said: “We know that our customers are interested in high end contemporary kitchens and furniture, and Harvey Jones at the Mailbox complements our existing mix of both aspirational and accessible home furnishings and interiors brands. We’re delighted to be welcoming another leading name to the Mailbox.”
The Mailbox is also home to Harvey Nichols’ 45,000 sq ft flagship store; fashion retailers including Paul Smith, BOSS, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein Underwear, Emporio Armani, Daniel Footwear, L.K. Bennett and Gieves & Hawkes, Ribble Cycle’s first flagship showroom, The Wedding Club and Fine & Country, in addition to Everyman Cinema, Malmaison, AC Hotels and the Mailbox’s popular canalside bars and restaurants.
In Autumn 2017, the Mailbox launched its leading edge, smart technology solution, bringing a range of new and exciting services to deliver a whole new level of engagement. The Mailbox app allows customers to pre-book and pre-order food, access personalised promotions and experiences, book tickets for events and get the latest exclusive content.
