Upholstery retailer Arlo & Jacob joins TCM fold

Arlo Jacob Islington SquareUpholstery chain Arlo & Jacob has joined the TCM Living portfolio after the company bought it from its directors.

Mark Smith, TCM Living chief executive and Julie Smith bought Arlo & Jacob from administration in May 2020, with the blessing of TCM Corporation, TCM Living’s Thailand listed parent company. 

TCM owns Alstons Upholstery, Ashley Manor Upholstery, AMX Design and Alexander & James.

The chain plans to launch a flooring collection later this year, utilising the skills of TCM Corporation.

‘I am pleased with the progress that has been made since Julie and I acquired the business just over a year ago. Bringing it into the TCM Living Group is the logical next step now that the business is on more solid foundations and can leverage and benefit from the wider group’s buying power, skills and know-how,’ says Smith.
