The furniture industry pays tribute to Queen Elizabeth II

The British furniture industry has been quick to pay tribute to Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away peacefully at Balmoral yesterday at the age of 96.

Retailers, suppliers, service providers and individuals alike have praised the devotion, hard work and wisdom of Britain’s longest-serving monarch, celebrating her remarkable legacy and extending their sympathies to the Royal Family.

As the nation enters a period of mourning and awaits the official proclamation of King Charles III on Saturday, it remains to be seen how The Queen’s passing will impact businesses – particularly those with close ties to the institution.

The Queen’s funeral will take place on Monday 19th September, which has been declared a bank holiday. Many businesses are expected to close that day as a mark of respect.
