About Gillies

Gillies was founded in 1895 by James Gillies, moving to Broughty Ferry, Dundee in 1906 as cabinetmakers, upholsterers and removal contractors before finally opening on the current site as ‘House Furnishers’ in 1939. Since then Gillies has continued to provide the North East of Scotland with the highest quality home furnishings, carpets and flooring.

Gillies understands family life, and how important your home is to you. This is why as an independent family run business we have helped to furnish homes all over Scotland for over 100 years and continue to be one of Scotland’s premier furnishing retailers responsible for helping you to create a home.

In our showrooms you will find a huge selection of sofas, dining furniture, occasional furniture, beds, bedroom furniture, carpets and all types of flooring. Within our flagship Broughty Ferry store you will also find curtains, wallpapers, soft furnishings, linens, cookware, giftware and occasional lighting.
