About The Romo Group
Founded in 1902 by Robert Mould, Romo is a family run business in its fifth generation.
Based in Nottinghamshire, UK, with offices and showrooms in London, Europe and the USA, The Romo Group now has six established brands all of which have their own unique character and style. Each brand has its own in-house design studio creating a diverse range of fabrics, wallcoverings, trimmings and accessories to suit customers' tastes and needs worldwide.
The Romo Group Brands
In 1902, Robert Mould, who gave his name to the company, started a small-scale furniture manufacturing business in Nottingham, England. By the 1930s, the company had become wholesalers to the upholstery industry, supplying furnishing fabrics and components for the manufacture of furniture. The company continued to evolve until eventually the upholstery manufacturing side of the business ceased completely and the supply of furnishing fabrics became the company’s primary focus. In the 1980s Romo started its own in-house design studio, injecting a more creative approach to design which redefined Romo as the design-led company it is known as today.
The group is now managed by the founder’s great grandson, Jonathan Mould, along with his niece Lindsay and children Felicity, Emily and Jordan. With extensive international showrooms and distribution, The Romo Group has over 350 employees and is recognised worldwide, with exports totaling approximately 70% of sales. Customer satisfaction and employee welfare are at the core of the company’s values, and although much expanded, Romo remains very much a family business.
