About E Reeves Ltd

House of Reeves is Croydon's oldest and largest furniture store and has been trading for over 140 years. Our famous Croydon landmark in Church Street displays Croydon's most comprehensive sofa suites, beds and mattresses, dining room, bedroom furniture and sofabed collections.

Founded in 1867 By Edwin Reeves, from Sherborne in Dorset, on a site opposite the Croydon Parish Church in Church Street, the West Country Cooper traded with his wife, brothers and son, introducing ironmongery, furniture and a secondhand department. House of ReevesEdwin's son, William Arthur, expanded the company, opening branches in Caterham and in his Father's home town of Sherborne. William T Reeves became the Managing Director and ran the company  until his death in 1982, when his son Maurice succeeded him. Following the riots, Maurice has come out of retirement to assist in the running of the Company alongside his two sons, Trevor and Graham and our third director, David Barnes.

Over the years the company has seen many changes. From the expansion in the '50s and '60s, harder times came with Croydon's redevelopment in the '70s, and so the company contracted back to its Croydon base. During those times the company still flourished, famed for its Auction Rooms (3,388 sales in total), its specialised valuation service, and secondhand department.

By 1977, the area had become so synonymous with Reeves, that 'David Ellis Place' was renamed 'Reeves Corner'. Following the installation of the Tram network at the start of the Noughties, our nearest tram stop adopted the same name.

The company made a major transition in the mid 1980's to selling purely new furniture and beds for the modern household. This change heralded a big challenge for the company and it was from this that it developed into the company you see today, offering a fantastic range of furniture in all styles.
