About Us

We are passionate about what we do. We always work with our customers to ensure they are getting exactly what they want to make their house into their home. It may mean going the extra mile for you, but that’s what we enjoy doing!

Fashion Flooring was established in Bishop’s Stortford by Tony Orme in 1992. Dave, his youngest son, worked in the store while Russ, the eldest, carried out the fitting with Tony. He traded there until he unfortunately lost his premises due to redevelopment of the town centre in 2003. Tony made the decision to retire, but Dave always wanted to bring the family business back to the town.

Fast forward and in 2017, a lovely new shop location was found in the heart of Bishop’s Stortford. This was also the time to expand into soft furnishings, lighting, accessories and decorative items for the home.

We are a team of three who all work together, each one of us is involved with every customer from the time they walk through our door until completion of their order.

EXCELLENT SERVICE We had the flooring replaced throughout our house and are really pleased with the end result. The entire process from ordering to fitting was handled in a highly efficient and professional manner and we would have no hesitation in recommending.

A visit is definitely recommended! We’ve been looking for ceiling lights for quite a while but never been able to find what we were looking for. Staff were lovely and very knowledgeable and with help we ordered 2 ceiling lights; they are amazing! Absolutely love them! Thank you Fashion Flooring & Interiors... will definitely return.
