Pieces For Places is a furniture and homeware store in the seaside town of Barmouth in Southern Snowdonia. Based in a restored three storey Victorian Methodist Chapel, we aim to offer a unique shopping experience for the design appreciative customer. Since our opening in September 2014 we have gained some great media coverage, opened a second store and had the honour of winning both a High Street Heroes award and a Fresh Business Thinking award.
We source pieces from an eclectic mix of over 120 suppliers from the UK and Europe, both large and small, so that we can offer you a choice of unique pieces that are not mass produced. This does mean that lead times can vary and stock availability can be short lived and unpredictable. Many of our tables, sofas and other furniture are made individually to order and come with a wide array of options and choices and we think the best way to make sure that you get exactly what you want is to talk to you first!
We also deliver most pieces in our own van so that we can assemble your furniture for you* and make sure you are happy with it before we leave. The person that delivers your sofa could well be the salesperson that sold it to you in the shop!
Because of all this we feel that trying to put all of our items on a website for you to buy with a click and have it arrive within a set period of time anywhere in the UK via a third party courier** wouldn’t give you the level of service that we work so hard to achieve.
What we have tried to do with our website is show you some of the kind of pieces and ranges that we have in the shop so that even when you can’t be in Barmouth you can still see what’s new and get ideas for your home.
Although you can’t buy it all with a click you can email or call the shop and we can take your requirements and orders over the phone. We regularly deliver to Shropshire, the West Midlands, the Wirral, Cheshire and Staffordshire and we can usually come up with a delivery solution for most parts of the UK. Since we opened in 2014 we have delivered to Edinburgh, Newquay in Cornwall and the East coast of Norfolk to name but a few more far flung places!
We do our best to keep the website updated but looking after the customers in our shop is our most important task and at busy times prices can be out of date and pieces can be out of stock. Please check with us, first and if you do spot an error we’d be grateful if you let us know!
*Please note that online exclusive items may be delivered externally and may need to be assembled.
**Under certain circumstances or when it is the most convenient option for our customers select items are delivered by pallet. Delivery options will always be discussed before orders are placed.
We are located in Barmouth on the west coast of Snowdonia, with a long sandy beach and a picturesque harbour bordered by the dramatically beautiful Mawddach estuary.
Barmouth is the perfect destination for seaside holidays, walking and outdoor activity breaks. There are numerous excellent cafes, pubs and restaurants.
