Premier Cane Furniture History

Welcome to our official Premier Cane Furniture blog where we keep you up to date with the latest news, trends and tips surrounding cane and rattan furniture. Before we get in to any of that we thought we should properly introduce ourselves. 

Who are we?

We're a family run business that was establish in 2002 by Mark Wheeler under the name of Premier Cane and Crafts. Mark had previously manufactured cane and rattan furniture from 1983 to 2001. He set up the shop on a narrow cobble street in Melton Mowbray and manned the shop for a couple of years whilst continuing his job as a mail man, eventually he was able to leave his job from the Royal Mail in 2005 to take on the shop full time.

We then moved to a new location in a greenhouse on a farm called Millhouse in late 2005. The new shop came with its fair share of problems due to it being a giant greenhouse it was freezing in the winter and too hot in the summer, this was not good for the furniture. Mark continued to manage the business by himself until 2007 when his wife Ellie wheeler decided to leave her job on the ambulance service to join Premier Cane Furniture full time. Ellie had always been a corner stone to the business from day one and had worked part time since the first opening day in 2002.

In 2014 we decided to relocate for the 3rd time to a unit in East Goscote and in 2016 Premier Cane Furniture decided to hire their first apprentice. This apprentice was Drew Wheeler, the eldest son of Mark and Ellie. Now we have got to the present day and if you managed to read that without getting bored to tears then brilliant you now know who we truly are.

What is our aim?

We aim to achieve extremely competitive prices whilst not compromising quality. We hand check ALL of our furniture and we personally deliver it to your door at no extra cost.
