Give Furniture

We rely on brands, designers, stylists and supporters to donate beautiful furnishings for the women and children we support. This often means returns, seconds or ex-showroom stock; items that didn’t end up being used on projects, and we also value the gorgeous things donated by supporters and the local community.

We are currently in need of:

  • Cabin beds, bunkbeds or cots
  • Small wardrobes
  • Chest of drawers
  • Small bedside tables
  • Small coffee tables
  • Side tables
  • Shelving units
  • Wall shelves
  • Storage baskets
  • Small desks
  • Home accessories
  • Children's accessories
  • Light shades and lamps
  • Kitchenware
  • Artwork (lightweight with perpex, not glass)
  • Lightweight mirrors

    If you have any of these items in excellent or 'as new' condition to donate please email us photographs and dimensions at donate@furnishingfutures.org and we can arrange a time for you to deliver it to us in Leyton, or we may be able to arrange collection if you are within London.

    Please note we cannot accept items that are scratched, damaged or with any missing parts.

    Thank you 🙏

DONATING FURNITURE FAQs

How can I donate furnishings? - Professionals

If you are a brand, designer or stylist and you would like to donate furnishings please email us at donate@furnishingfutures.org with details of what you would like to donate and we would be delighted to talk to you about your donation. Please include photographs and dimensions, quantities and links to products where possible.

How can I donate furniture? - Member of Public

If you are a member of the public and have items you would like to donate please email us at donate@furnishingfutures.org with clear photographs and dimensions of the items. We do not always have the storage space to accept donations so please check with us first.

Please check the "What Furniture do you accept" section below before contacting us.

Do you collect donations or where do I drop them off?

Wherever possible, donations need to be dropped off to our warehouse in East London. We can sometimes collect within London when we have a family in particular need of your item of furniture but this costs us a lot of money, so wherever possible we ask for donations to be dropped off to us once we have confirmed we can take the items.

We cannot receive unsolicited donations, if you are a brand or designer or someone who may have stock to donate, we will talk to you about how best to organise logistics with our partners.

What furniture do you accept?

We work primarily with the interiors industry to repurpose good quality furnishings and homewares such as returns, seconds, excess stock, ex-dosplay or showroom stock or props from shoots, film and television.

Donated items need to be in excellent or 'as new' condition, and suitable for use in families' homes. This is because we believe that the families we support deserve to have nice things, and good quality furnishings raise self esteem. It also costs us money to mend or dispose of unsuitable items. 

Please note that some conditions apply:

  • We can only accept upholstered items that still have the fire tags attached due to fire regulations.
  • We can only accept items that do not have stains, marks, rips or scratches on them.
  • We cannot accept used mattresses.
  • We cannot accept anything broken or with missing parts - please carefully check items before donating.
  • We do not take toys, clothing, books or used kitchen items and white goods at this time.
  • We do welcome good quality donations of furniture where we have the space to store them. This includes larger items of furniture as well as accessories, artwork and soft furnishings.
WHITE GOODS

We are looking for a brand partnership with a company who could donate good quality new white goods, so if this is you please get in touch.
