Founded in 2004 by Jason Bannister, Oak Furniture Land is one of Britain’s largest online retailers of exclusively hardwood furniture. The firm claims that, in a little over two years, it went from housing its stock in chicken sheds to being eBay UK’s largest retailer by turnover in 2006. Later that same year, it launched its own website selling oak, mahogany and mango wood furniture designed by Bannister and crafted overseas. Sales have grown by 85% a year, from an annualised £2.7m in 2006 to £17.1m in 2009.
