Neptune Guildford opened on August 16.

For those who are yet to discover Neptune, theirs is a world of beautifully made furniture, textiles and accessories for the home and garden.

Design wise, they’re perhaps most known for kitchens with their heirloom-worthy dressers not far behind. But it’s their approach to design that also helps to set them apart from the rest.

Neptune stores present their furniture in room scenarios. You understand how the furniture translates to real rooms.

Every Neptune product tells the tale of incredible thought and detail, because they want them to be better than you ever expected

It’s not all about looks. It’s just as much about the way a product works; things that you may never see, but which elevate a design into that special something that you just couldn’t ever be without.

And they’re certainly most respected for their commitment to craft and quality. Never will you find chipboard in a Neptune piece, nor will you see MDF, ever. Put simply, they make things they’re proud of, and want you to be too.

Founded in 1996 – Neptune in fact celebrated its 21st birthday in July this year – the Wiltshire-based brand has grown and grown and now has just shy of 30 stores across the UK and Europe. And when we say stores, that doesn’t really do them justice.

Neptune approaches the build and design of its stores as a long-term investment, transforming often old, unloved buildings into spaces that feel like a home. Its furniture is presented in room scenarios, so you wander from living room into kitchen into bathroom and in many of its stores, out into a garden or terrace.

It’s a way to understand how the furniture translates to real rooms, but also how effortlessly they all come together.

Sat on the curve of Guildford High Street lies our new-concept store, Neptune Guildford. It’s a sash-window fronted Georgian property that was, once upon a time, a bank. It will showcase an edited selection of its designs and only one of its kitchens, serving as a gentle introduction to the brand.

A large number of their home accessories will also be on display and available to shop and take home on the day.

First the month of opening shoppers receive a £15 voucher when they spend £100 in-store for you and a friend. For more details, visit

Neptune Guildford, 171 High Street, Guildford, Surrey, GU1 3AJ. Tel: 01483 345480.
