Our History

Our history began in Worthing in 1946; Jones & Tomlin is a fully independent, family-run business specialising in beds, mattresses and bedroom furniture for over 70 years.

It All Began in 1946

…and some of the good people of Worthing who bought furniture from us then, are still loyal customers today! We love meeting people who can remember buying their first dining or bedroom suite from us back in the 40’s or 50’s. We’re always delighted to hear that they’re still using it in their home, or that they’ve been coming back to us ever since. Family is at the very heart of our business; therefore we’re proud that our products have been at the heart of countless family homes for generations.

When Mr Leslie Tomlin – who went on to become a town councillor and, later; Mayor of Worthing, opened the first store on Chapel Road, his vision was to supply a wide range of quality home furnishings with affordable prices; and second-to-none service. He handed the reins to his son; Richard Tomlin, and in the 40 years that followed, the company refined its focus to specialise in beds, mattresses and bedroom furniture. In addition, opening a further two showrooms in Horsham and Chichester. Today, Adam Tomlin (Richard’s son and Leslie’s grandson) is at the helm; and we are extremely proud to be an independent, family-owned British business that has been trading for more than 70 years.
