Robert M. Stirling
Robert M. Stirling, Dealer in Fine Furniture, &c., 89, Renfield Street, and 52 to 56, Bath Street.—
The furniture trade of Glasgow, like every other staple branch of commerce, comprises every class of dealer, with corresponding ratios of value and excellence. As in everything else, so in furniture, it always pays to get the best. An establishment which stands in the van of the choicest line of the furniture trade is that of Mr. Robert M. Stirling, of the above address. The business was originally established by Messrs. Stirling & Wylie, in 1880, in Maxwell Street, and subsequently Mr. Stirling became the sole proprietor, removing to the present commodious premises.
These consist of an extensive ground floor, reaching from Bath to Renfield Streets, also three eligible flats above, and contain one of the most extensive, as it it is one of the freshest and most elegant stocks of fine furniture, carpets, curtains, and bedding in the city. Mr. Stirling manifests an intimate knowledge of the wants of the public, and has kept most thoroughly up to the demands made upon his house. All of the newest designs in parlour, chamber, dining-room, and kitchen furniture, are included in his stock. His parlour suites are obtainable in all the latest styles of upholstering ; his carpets include the choicest patterns in Brussels, Turkey, and Persian, Kidderminster velvets, tapestries, three-ply ingrains, &c. The firm also have a very large stock of Eastern rugs, in which they do a large trade. Various patterns of oil-cloths, linoleum, bedding in profusion, &c., can be found here, and all goods are quoted at astonishingly low prices.
Mr. Stirling deals with the best classes of our citizens, and makes a speciality of completely furnishing all sizes of houses, residential mansions, flats, &c. Estimates are promptly furnished, and the terms are of the most liberal character, presenting to all an opportunity of obtaining what they want in the way of house furnishing. The prompt, upright, and reliable character of all Mr. Stirling's dealings, and the superior quality of his furniture, have secured to him the representative position he now holds, and renders his establishment a specially interesting feature of Glasgow's activity and enterprise.
