Old Boot, a leather upholstery business specialised in the sale of Chesterfield style sofas online and from its London showroom, has been placed into liquidation.


Nicholas Hancock of corporate recovery firm UHY Hacker Young was appointed liquidator of the company June 28.

Old Boot Sofas traded from premises on Wandsworth Bridge Road in Fulham as well as online. It is believed to have ceased trading around the end of May, leaving some customers in the dark as to the situation regarding outstanding orders.

Founded in 2011, the company had annual sales of about £2 million, but it slipped to a £43,883 net loss in 2016–17 having recorded six-figure profits the year before.

Its directors and two largest shareholders are Glenn Blackman and Andrew Conaway, who previously ran a circa £3 million turnover cabinet furniture ecommerce operation before the company behind it (Futurelook Ltd) ceased trading back in 2010. Mr Conaway joined Old Boot and became a shareholder in 2014.
