About us

An established, credible family business, Philip Thursby was founded as Thursby Furniture Ltd by Philip’s father, Harry, in 1947. In 2007 Philip opened Philip Thursby’s, moving away from furniture to specialise in carpets and flooring. 

The business is now a father and son operation. Both work side by side in the business, which has been located at the current Sunderland premises for over 20 years.

As we are part of the Associated Carpet Group, which has over 250 carpet dealers nationwide, we can source high quality flooring and carpets for a good price. Not only can we access the best prices in the business, we supply some of the highest quality brands. Talk to us in Sunderland today and let’s cover your floors!
