Kettle pays tribute to founder

John Kettle, the founder of furniture supplier Kettle Interiors, passed away on Saturday 5th November aged 73 after a long battle with cancer.

"John was a devoted husband, father to three and grandfather to seven, and he enjoyed it most when the house was full," says Kettle's international sales director, Simon Ainge.

"Many of you would have known John for being sociable at furniture events over the past 30 years and making friends with so many retailers and suppliers in the industry along the way. Regardless of what was going on, he managed to retain a laid-back attitude.

"John had a love for great food, as well as a keen interest in horse racing, stemming from his early career as a bookmaker – but it was his unfiltered, razor-sharp wit that will be most fondly remembered.

"Our thoughts are with his family at this time."
