1982

Founder Jonathan Coulthard buys and renovates his first house - sparking a lifelong love of home design.

Makes a life change and decides to turn a love into a career. Completes City and Guilds training in furniture making and becomes the first student on his course to sell his exam piece at the end of year show.

1995

Starts my fathers heart in a hidden-away 10×20ft workshop.

1997

Moves to a small workshop in Nethergreen, Sheffield, used by joiners for more than 100 years. By now, people are really talking about my fathers heart and the customer list grows to include Harrods, Regents Park in London, a royal family and some of the most prestigious private homes in the region.

2010

The owners of the Nethergreen workshop decide to convert it to houses so my fathers heart moves to Aizlewood Road. But, despite an enviable base in the city’s antique quarter, the search continues for the perfect location.

2012

Agree the purchase of land at Broadfield Court and approach one of Sheffield's most adventurous architect studios - award-winning architect Tim Justice from AAD architects - to design our landmark showroom and workshop. The result is striking, reflecting the unmatchable quality and unique design of my fathers heart craftsmanship.

2013

my fathers heart takes on the international market-leading SieMatic brand, beautifully built contemporary German kitchens. A perfect partnership.
