We usually have a wide range of antique Regency armchairs and Regency style armchairs plus a choice of Regency desk chairs, some of which are antique whilst others date from more recent times but have still been very skillfully made in the much sought after and appreciated Regency style. Traditional materials and methods of construction are used wherever possible.

Antique Edwardian Armchairs, Antique Victorian Armchairs and Desk Chairs

The Victorian period was sandwiched between the Georgian and Edwardian periods and is probably one of the most admired and sought after periods for furniture in general. Queen Victoria’s reign was from 1837 until her death in 1901 and furniture made during that period is, strictly speaking, Victorian, however makers continued to produce furniture in the Victorian style long after her death and indeed to this very day.

In this section you will find numerous examples of fine antique Victorian armchairs and other Victorian furniture and we have been careful to include a gallery of photographs with every listing so that you can see for yourself the kind of high quality craftsmanship on offer and the excellent condition that our inventory is in when offered for sale.

Many people find that furniture from the slightly later Edwardian period is more to their taste and we also stock a good choice of Edwardian armchairs and Edwardian office or desk chairs for you to choose from.

Art Deco Armchairs and other Art Deco Furniture

We also have examples of Art Deco chairs, including Art Deco armchairs and other Art Deco chairs together with other examples of Art Deco furniture as well as many more antique and contemporary armchairs from a variety of different periods. Lovers of Art Deco furniture and Art Deco chairs in particular will find a fascinating selection of items available.

Handmade Leather Captains Chairs and Other Contemporary or Period Style Chairs

One of our most popular ranges of chairs is our English handmade leather Captains chair and other new leather upholstered office chairs. If you are looking for a super comfortable and imposing office chair then you need look no further than these beauties - all handmade and assembled by craftsmen in England and available in a number of different colours of leather. The sumptuous leather Captains chair is a particular favourite although others such as the leather Directors chair and the leather Gainsborough chair also appeal to many of our customers and are also available in a variety of leather colours.

When browsing this category you will also find examples of armchairs in the Chippendale style as well as many more from other periods in the history of furniture making. If you do have a particular style or period in mind it is well worth signing up for our free new arrivals notification service, which will give you the heads up when new items are added in your category(s) of choice.

We often carefully restore and/or reupholster antique armchairs and antique desk chairs before offering them for sale to our customers and when this is the case it will always be pointed out in the product description together with a gallery of photographs showing, in detail, the condition of the article in question. We have our own workshops and our own craftsmen who share our values regarding quality of work and choice of top quality materials.

Bespoke English Hand Made Leather Directors Desk Chair Bruciato

Bespoke English Hand Made Leather Directors Desk Chair Bruciato

An absolutely stunning bespoke new leather 'Director's chair' in a beautiful bruciato colour, hand-made in England with materials of the finest quality. Height is adjustable with swivel/tilt mechanism. ‘Old English’ bruciato is an aniline-finished leather that is tanned to ensure a pleasing distressed or ‘aged’ finish from new. Extra fat liquors are applied during tanning to give the leather a slightly waxy feel. These leathers are designed to allow the natural marking variations of the leather to show through to the finish coat. Pull-up leathers do not have a consistent colour density across the whole hide and are designed to change colour and sheen when pulled or stretched. They are not as colour fast as pigmented hides and are designed to allow furniture to age and relax through use and over time. Evidence of marks and scarring will be seen through the surface finish. Each hide will be unique, as will be the furniture on which it is used. The studding is achieved with close individual nails or studs -  not by using strips - and each nail is individually hammered in by hand. The seat has individual double cone hand springing, each spring is hand-sewn to the beechwood frame and the filling is canvas, fibre and felt. Handmade English furniture of this quality can last for generations if well-cared for. Available in other colours upon request. Bespoke orders and wholesale enquiries welcome. Condition: In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.

More About Louis XV Furniture Throughout the reign of Louis XV furniture design evolved taking in various fashions. The preference for smaller items and more comfort came to the fore during the Louis XV period, contrasting with the more bombastic and large scale grandeur of the early styles from the Louis XIV period, which had been heavily influenced by the need to have furniture that match the grandeur of the massive rooms in the Palace of Versailles. Louis XV had many of these rooms divided up and a more intimate styling became fashionable. Many new forms of chairs were developed during the Louis XV period which all had more comfort in mind. These included the chaise longue, the Bergere which had a low seat, an extra cushion and wings which made it easier to take naps in the chair and the Fauteuil de cabinet - a chair designed to with with a desk and provide much more comfort whilst writing. These Louis XV dining chairs with their padded back and seats show this trend for comfort and will add the ‘wow’ factor to any dining table. They are in excellent condition as can be seen from the photographs. Viewing A Set Of Louis XV Dining Chairs In Person We recommend that you try and browse through our objects personally.

Thomas Chippendale (1718-1779) is synonymous with the English rococo style of the mid to late 18th century. Born in Yorkshire he moved to London where he published his celebrated book of designs: ‘Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker’s Director’ in 1754. This collection of furniture designs became the most important collection to have been published and illustrated virtually every type of mid 18th century domestic furniture. By this it had become common to create specialised furniture for every type of activity and the creativity of the cabinetmaker and carver knew no bounds. His designs were also used across the centuries in Europe and the American colonies resulting in a great deal of furniture with the ‘Chippendale’ look. This wonderful set of mahogany dining chairs carries on this proud tradition. These chairs are in excellent condition as can be seen from the photographs we have provided for your perusal.

Bespoke English Handmade Amsterdam Leather Arm Chair bruciato

Bespoke English Handmade Amsterdam Leather Arm Chair bruciato

This is an absolutely stunning new bespoke 'Amsterdam Armchair' in a beautiful bruciato colour, hand-made in England with materials of the finest quality. Old English is an aniline-finished leather that is tanned to ensure a pleasing distressed or ‘aged’ finish from new. Extra fat liquors are applied during tanning to give the leather a slightly waxy feel. These leathers are designed to allow the natural marking variations of the leather to show through to the finish coat.   Pull-up leathers do not have a consistent colour density across the whole hide and are designed to change colour and sheen when pulled or stretched. They are not as colour fast as pigmented hides and are designed to allow furniture to age and relax through use and over time. Evidence of marks and scarring will be seen through the surface finish.   Each hide will be unique, as will be the furniture on which it is used. The studding is achieved with close individual nails or studs -  not by using strips - and each nail is individually hammered in by hand.   Seats have individual double cone hand springing, each spring is hand sewn to the beechwood frame. The filling is canvas, fibre and felt.   The effect can be very pleasing although bear in mind that this hand-dyed leather can fade in direct sunlight. Handmade English furniture of this quality can last for generations if well-cared for. Available in other colours upon request. Bespoke orders and wholesale enquiries welcome. Condition: In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.
