JB Global, which owns the Oak Furniture Land brand, is the creation of entrepreneur Jason Bannister, who remains MD and sole proprietor of the firm.

Bannister became one of the UK’s most successful “eBay entrepreneurs”, after he began selling furniture online to supplement his income while working as a salesman in his hometown of Burnley. Demand took off and he eventually left work to set up shop on his own.

Oak Furniture Land now has 54 showrooms across Britain and is the country’s largest retailer of solid wood furniture.

JB Global’s other brands include OFL Home and The Online Furniture Shop.
