Here at LPC Furniture we care about investing our time now in the best staff of tomorrow. We rely on our customer service, our quality furniture and reputation to compete with the big boxed companies. With nearly 30 years behind us, LPC Furniture is going from strength to strength and we’re excited to add another role to our growing team.

This Interior Design role entails working in retail and advising customers, initially alongside the owner of the business, Pam, at our new Windermere store to ensure the smooth running of our shop whilst working towards a nationally recognized qualification.

Key responsibilities will include:

  • Moving furniture and creating displays in our showrooms as well as helping and attending with roadshows and county fair exhibitions when required.
