About Us

Our Vision

Our ambition is to furnish and finish local homes with quality goods, from our family to yours.

We want to be true to our founding principles and the DNA of our business that has been formed for over 50 years. In simple terms, what makes us unique is that Sterling is a family, with family at the heart of everything we do. We're a family business, selling to generations of families.

We want to introduce our customers to our family of brands and services. We want to invite aspirational homemakers to explore new brands, quality products and services as their homes evolve. We want to create a shopping experience customers will enjoy sharing with family that will ultimately lead to house-proud owners showing off fantastic new products in their own homes.



Our History

Over 50 years ago, George Knowles Snr saw the growing popularity of out of town retail developments were offering in America back in 1973. He converted an old mill in Tillicoultry, Central Scotland, into the largest and most diverse furniture and homewares showroom in Scotland. This first store was ahead of its time and has since become a truly unique and pioneering retail experience. The store building itself has developed and grown, and now our flagship store offers the most individual and unique home shopping experience, with something for everyone.

With our vast experience in sourcing, selling and delivering great quality furniture, we're proud of our unique shopping experience and trusted reputation. We constantly look for new and innovative ways to develop what we can offer to our customers as well as bringing the latest trends and home inspiration to life.

No matter what your style or budget is, no matter how large or small your home is, no matter whether you want to accessorise one room or re-imagine your whole house we're confident that you'll find everything you need and lots that you love at Sterling Home.
