​Furniture Crates Ltd is based in the heart of East Sussex and is at the forefront of design and manufacture of beautiful wooden display crates, creating visually appealing and functional displays for your brand or store. From small independents to major retailers, Furniture Crates Ltd can offer unique bespoke solutions as well as a wide variety of displays available on our website.
​​What we can offer;
1. Visual Appeal: Rustic Display Shelving Hits the Mark
​Countless studies have proven the value of visual aesthetics in retail displays. Visual presentation not only gives retailers the opportunity to set their products apart as being different and special in comparison with alternative or similar products but, importantly, can make consumers less sensitive to price. 
​When deciding on the visual aesthetics of your farm shop display, it pays to consider the profile of your customers and the kind of shopping experience they will respond to best. Generally speaking, farm shop customers are environmentally and ethically minded consumers. Words that might define their expectations include ‘natural’, ‘wholesome’ and ‘organic’, so a farm shop environment filled with plastic shelving and crude artificial lighting, for example, would be incongruous. 
​Rustic wooden display units, on the other hand, work extremely well in a farm shop environment. There’s nothing unnatural or pretentious about real wood and its simple style offers the perfect backdrop for showcasing wholesome produce. 
​Furniture Crates offers a range of different-sized units – from tall free-standing shelving units to angled shelf counter-top displays – to create interesting variety within your display and make sure there is a consistent theme across your entire product range. 
2. Brand-building: Use Your Display Furniture to Build Customer Loyalty 
​Farm shop display furniture doesn’t have to be boring. At Furniture Crates we think natural wood looks amazing, or as an alternative we can also colour match to Pantone and RAL references if required painting the inside and the outside of the crate. This creates an eye-catching pop of colour that not only adds to the visual appeal of the display but also makes it totally unique to you and instantly recognisable as your brand. 
​Even better, to really make your farm shop display units work hard for you, we can print your logo and graphics onto selected display panels. Every opportunity you get to promote your brand as part of your customers’ shopping experience is a valuable opportunity to build customer loyalty and trust. 
3. Functionality: Choose Farm Shop Display Furniture That’s Fit for Purpose! 
​Farm shop display furniture, must satisfy many different demands; it has to be strong, durable, easy to clean and easy to move – as well as being aesthetically pleasing. Fortunately, as well as being visually attractive, wooden shelving units tick all the boxes here, too, even more so if free-standing units are fitted with lockable wheels for easy manoeuvrability. Wood is, after all, a beautiful, natural material that’s capable of withstanding a few knocks, won’t show dust and will stand the test of time. 
​We pride ourselves on building farm shop furniture from sustainable, FSC certified wood. 
4. Ease of Assembly: Avoid Expensive Shop Fitting Fees
​Farm shops need the flexibility to rearrange their retail displays to take account of seasonal variations, promotions, and new supplier relationships. So it pays to source free-standing units that either come pre-assembled or can quickly and easily be self-assembled, without the need for a complex array of tools – or an army of shop fitters. 
5. Forward Thinking: Flexibility To Grow Your Business
​It pays to choose farm shop display units that are modular in nature and can easily be re-configured or added to at a later date in order to accommodate growth and/or change.
