Feather and Black enters administration

Feather & Black has joined its sister company Multiyork in administration. Feather & Black has 123 staff, operates 25 stores and sells online. Administrators Duff & Phelps are trading the business whilst it seeks a buyer. Both Feather & Black and Multiyork which employs a much larger team of 547 people, had been hit by a lowdown in consumer spending as well as increasing competition in the homeware and furniture sector.
