The vast Arighi Bianchi furnishings store is renowned
for its unbeatable choice and superb customer service
estled in the foothills of the
Peak District, just a stone's
throw from Macclesﬁeld train
station, this Grade II* listed
building is a gem waiting to be explored.
With more than 60,000sq ft spread
across four ﬂoors, the Arighi Bianchi
store offers hundreds of pieces of
furniture and accessories.
'We're passionate about furniture,'
says managing director Robert Bianchi.
'Everything we do is focused on quality,
provenance and design.
'We hand-pick every piece you see in
store, from sofas to sideboards, beds to
table lamps, armchairs to accessories.
Our young design team create beautiful
room sets for inspiration, and our expert
staff are always on hand to help.
'We pride ourselves on customer
service, which has always been at the
heart of our business.'
But that's not all Arighi Bianchi has
to offer. The company also has an
award-winning café bar where you can
enjoy a glass of wine or a bite to eat
- including homemade cakes, popular
chef's specials and delicious Sunday
roasts. It's the perfect excuse to take a
break and relax between shopping.
Over the years, Arighi Bianchi has
built up some special relationships with
its suppliers. This means the company

having so much room to display things
is that we can cater for every taste and
style,' says Robert. 'So whether you
love the modern Scandi look or prefer
something more classic, you'll ﬁnd
everything under one roof here.
'I love coming across new pieces that
I know will look great on the shop ﬂoor
- this season's trend for luxurious velvet
upholstery, for example - although I
never put style before substance and
always check the quality is tip top.'
With three local warehouses, its own
delivery team and a ﬂeet of branded
