Carl Hammond

Carl Hammomd Furnishers is a family run business established in 1962 by Carl himself. Carl learnt his trade at Cattles Furnishings before saving up enough money to buy a small amount of stock and rent the small ground floor shop at 355 Hessle Road, Hull, East Yorkshire. After numerous expansions the shop still occupies 355 Hessle Road along with 3 other units, with showrooms on 2 floors. Many people will remember the warehouse Carl occupied at the bottom of Rugby Street off Hessle Road during the 1970's/80's, that was demolished in the early 1990's to make way for the new Hessle Road development project.

The Shop at 351-355 Hessle Road was greatly expanded at that time to show all the furniture under one roof. Carl's son, Paul, joined the company 26 years ago, he now runs the business with the help of Joe who joined the company 14 years ago. Paul and Joe have a vast knowledge of the upholstery and bedding trade.
