LOFT: The interiors company breathing life into Manchester’s High Street

Beginning with a single van in 2003, LOFT has kept pace with Manchester's rapid growth - expanding into a nationwide furniture provider.

The Manc The Manc - 1st January 2020

Pre-millennium Manchester is unrecognisable to the city that exists today.

Back then, there was no Beetham Tower, no Spinningfields, no flats bumping their heads on the clouds hanging above New Islington.

Everything has changed in the past twenty years – and various architects, developers and politicians have rightly enjoyed credit for turning our region into one of the world’s most exciting places to live.

But LOFT is something of an unsung hero in the assembly of the Manchester skyline.

As Manchester began to blossom with brand new flats, apartment, blocks, offices and student accommodation  in the early noughties, a man named Benjamin Hall created LOFT – which became the place to go to furnish interiors.


Two decades on, Benjamin and his hundred-strong team are continuing to add style to Mancunia with their brand new store in Northern Quarter. 

Beginning as Buy-To-Let Furnishings with a single van in 2003, LOFT has kept pace with Manchester and grown almost in parallel – expanding into a nationwide provider for high quality furnishings and interiors.


The company now employs 135 people full-time – with dedicated departments that cater for landlords, agents, student accommodation providers and BTR developers.

The LOFT Shop on High Street, which opened in February, is an exciting addition to Manchester city centre – with different deals available almost every day of the week.

These include ‘Sofa Sunday’ where customers can receive 10% off all sofas, ‘Accessories Tuesday’ (buy two cushions get one half price). We love this one; ‘Dine With Us Wednesday’ – offering 15% discounts on dining sets. ‘My Favourite Chair Thursday’ includes 10% discount on all armchairs, and at the end of the week there’s ‘That Friday Feeling’ – with discounts on bed frames and mattresses.


Shoppers can benefit from free delivery, assembly and installation with purchases (along with next day delivery available).

High-end furnishings come at affordable prices – with expert team members on hand in-store to offer insightful design advice.

LOFT has thrived by staying in tune with market trends – which have changed rapidly and dramatically during Manchester’s revival, whilst also remaining rigidly committed to its original core values.

Their promise is simple: All new furnishings come delivered, assembled and installed; and any old items are removed, replaced and recycled.

The LOFT Shop on High Street has been designed with the community in mind; offering trendy, characterful furnishings for the everyday home. 


LOFT is continuing to play a huge part in the rejuvenation of Manchester, which it has done for over 17 years.

Now, the team is all set for another chapter. 

You can check out LOFT’s new shop at 26-28 High Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester, M4 1QB.
