About Us
Do you want to work with a lovely group of people in a family environment?
We’re a family brand who consider ourselves champions of family life.
We’re named after our founder’s two children, Arlo and Jacob; two energetic little boys who love to build forts from their home sofa. It’s thanks to their imagination of turning their sofa into a playground that we decided to create sofas that were built to last a lifetime of jumping, playing, napping, and snuggling.
We know that families come in all shapes and sizes, which is why our furniture does too.
Arlo & Jacob is a forward-thinking, contemporary furniture brand steeped in a history of craftsmanship. All our furniture is designed in-house by our talented product team – and occasionally in partnership with renowned designers, like Tim Fenby and interior professionals like House & Garden magazine. Working from our factory in Long Eaton, the home of British upholstery, we design, hand make and deliver upholstered furniture with a difference.
