The Online Furniture Store (Robert James Interiors)


The Online Furniture Store, our internet brand has been trading online for over 17 years, owned and run by 'Robert James Interiors', a long-established furniture retailer (since 1988). You can be rest assured that you are in safe hands as we are truly experts in the furniture industry and still a family run business.

The founder, Robert ‘James’ Lightfoot has been at the helm since 1988, along with wife Trish. There have been many changes along the way, starting out as traditional reproduction furniture specialists to our present-day contemporary furniture specialist status. In 2008 our trading name changed from Yesterdays of Wolston Ltd to ‘Robert James Interiors’, the name change came about because as the store started to sell more contemporary furniture instead of the classic reproduction the name didn't fit.

We are known locally for providing quality furniture hand selected from some of the best manufactures, you can visit our village showroom as well as shop with us online, we will always try to give you the best levels of customers service, always happy to share our experiences and knowledge to help you get the right piece of furniture for your home.

Meet the Team - I have already mentioned myself and wife Trish, but we also have two other leading members of our team, both experienced and dedicated to customer satisfaction, Wayne and Matthew.

Wayne (Cooper) has now been with the company for over 20 years and lives in the same village as our store, Wolston with his partner Kay and three children. A keen Liverpool supporter (we don't hold that against him), and part time football coach, Wayne is a very valued member of staff who believes in doing things the right way for the customer, its fare to say he has many customers that would call him their friend, you are in very capable hands.

Matthew (Lightfoot) with us for over 3 years and counting, Matthew is our youngest son who had been in the background since he was a schoolboy helping on deliveries and today he is full time. Music is his passion, you will be in very capable hands as Matthew is a very conscientious worker who gives the very best, to all our customers.
