PIEFF furniture was a range of avant-garde furniture designed and produced in Cradley Heath near Birmingham from 1970 until 1983.
Tim Bates joined his brother in the company in 1966, and in 1969 they introduced a new range of modern up–market contract furniture.
Although the PIEFF range was originally aimed at up-market contract buyers, it was soon extended to appeal to retail customers and within two years was stocked by the leading retailers across the UK including Harrods, Heals, Waring & Gillow, John Lewis, House of Fraser and many more, and regular exports were also being made to customers in North America, the Gulf States, Australia and Hong Kong.
By the mid-1970s PIEFF Furniture could be seen on television programmes such as “This Is Your Life”, “Blake 7”, “The Good Life” and many more, and the British government’s Property Services Agency was buying this furniture for use in prestige locations in government offices and British Embassies around the world.
