The stunning building
is modelled on the
original Crystal Palace
Each floor of the store is carefully
curated, with ever-changing room sets
that show off the furniture and provide
customers with inspiration.
The ornate picture windows are the
perfect backdrop and also showcase the
latest looks and trends to the outside
world, including passengers travelling
past on trains to London and Manchester.
Furniture is sourced from all over the
world, although British manufacturers
such as Duresta, Ercol and Tetrad take
centre stage, reflecting the importance
of provenance, quality and design.
'We hand pick every piece you see in
store,' says Nick. 'Over the years, we've
built up some pretty special
relationships with our suppliers, both at
home and abroad, which allows us to
source the best quality products at the
very best prices.'
Arighi Bianchi is described as an
emporium, full of treasures waiting to be
discovered - and you certainly get that
feeling as you walk around the store,
with every corner revealing new and
interesting pieces that create
a real sense of drama.
But with so much choice, it can
sometimes be hard to decide, which
is where the store's unique personal
'WE HAVE BUILT UP SPECIAL RELATIONSHIPS
WITH OUR SUPPLIERS, WHICH ALLOWS US
TO SOURCE THE BEST QUALITY PRODUCTS
AT THE VERY BEST PRICES'
shopping service comes in handy.
Nick says: 'Our personal shopper can
help with everything, from choosing
individual pieces of furniture to
complete project management.
'We can create simple room schemes,
mood boards and digital floor plans,
as well as overseeing the ordering,
delivery and complete installation of
any of our products. Whether you
just need someone to help pull things
together or more involvement with
a major refurbishment, we're here to
offer help and advice.'
Interior design is a key part of Arighi
Bianchi's DNA, with everything available
under one roof, from living, dining
and bedroom furniture, to flooring,
wallpapers, paint colours, curtains and
blinds, lighting and accessories. And
with experienced staff on hand to help,
it's the ideal destination if you're looking
for direction. Arighi Bianchi offers a
complete shopping experience, with
free parking and an award-winning
café-bar, where you can enjoy coffee
and cake or indulge in a delicious lunch.
There's a new Home & Gift
department and The Flowerhouse
Cheshire, too, selling fresh blooms and
indoor plants for those finishing touches.

Recently hosting its first Home
Edit Event, Arighi Bianchi invited
special guest Sarah Beeny, to be
on hand to offer advice about all
things house and DIY.
Property and interiors guru Sarah
took a walk round the store, stopping
for coffee in Café Bar Arighi, and
taking part in two lively Q&A
sessions. She answered questions
on renovation, home ownership and
finding your own interiors style.
Interior designers and bloggers
toured the store, sharing live
coverage and photos with their
followers, and workshops were
packed out with customers learning
how to create a mood board, as well
as building their own terrarium.
