Furniture Now! is a leading community waste, re-use and training organisation helping as many people as possible access learning, skills development and household affects thereby reducing societyĆ­s negative environmental impact and building social inclusion.

We have a constantly changing stock of beautiful furniture from a wide variety of sources including brand new stock (often end of line and hence very good value) as well as pre-loved/refurbished stock.

There will be something to suit every taste and budget.

Additionally, training is central to all we do at Furniture Now! - we work closely with our trainees to get them the skills they need to progress but the public can also access our courses - many for free.

We are delighted to announce that the Furniture Now won the Education, Motivation and Training award for 2015, at the Lewes and Wealden Business Awards on Friday 19th June 2015. This is quite an achievement for such a small charity. We are so proud of the training team and our learners for their hard work and dedication that has made it all possible.

We have a number of new and free courses available at you at our Training centre on the Britland Estate, Eastbourne. For more information please click here.
