Annie Eadie began her career in the interior design industry working for Nina Campbell and John Stefanidis.

One of her interior design clients was looking to source some elegant, iron garden furniture. When she couldn’t find anything suitable, she decided to create her own design and manufacturing base in England – that was in 1990 and marked the beginning of The Heveningham Collection.

Over the years, the growing collection has become known as the ultimate in stylish, classic and highly durable iron furniture which is sought-after by discerning interior designers, garden designers, architects and individual clients for many of the world’s most beautiful homes, palaces, terraces, pools and five-star hotels. The latter includes the likes of The Connaught, Claridge’s, The Mandarin Oriental, Four Seasons Trinity Square and The Beaumont in London, Lime Wood in Hampshire, Sandy Lane in Barbados, The Lowell in New York and, most recently, Relais Christine in Paris.

The collection is comprised of dining sets (tables can be made in bespoke sizes), chaise longues (single and double), armchairs, bar stools (for any bar height), swing seats, benches, stools, simple obelisks and Versailles tubs. Every design is handcrafted to order in the UK; a range of standard designs comes in black, dark green, gunmetal or white. Alternative colours are available on request.

All designs, unless specified, are hot zinc- coated followed by a custom-made powder coating process, giving the furniture a beautiful and durable finish. They are all suitable for both interior and exterior use and come with Sunbrella cushions. All tabletops can be supplied in granite, limestone, marble or glass.

The Heveningham Collection can also be custom-made and manufactured to clients’ exact specifications in special colours and finishes. The company’s policy has not changed since it was founded more than 28 years ago and that is to offer clients the best in English craftsmanship, a high level of customer service and furniture made using only the finest quality materials throughout the manufacturing process. This ensures that everything, from the two-seater steel frame armchair to a glass console table, is both luxurious and built to last.

The company also regularly undertakes bespoke commissions for individual projects. The Collections’ designs have proved extremely popular with clients throughout the UK, Europe and North America and have been selected for residences on the Côte d’Azur, as well as Tuscany, Geneva, New York, Los Angeles, Palm Beach, Palm Springs, Chicago, Toronto, Aspen and Virginia.

The Heveningham Collection also features several pieces specifically for indoors, such as iron frame beds, children’s chairs and free-standing shelves – all of which remain in keeping with the simple, sophisticated look of the rest of the range. Smaller pieces in the collection include floor- standing candlesticks and a drinks trolley, which works just as well indoors by the fire as it does for summer garden parties. This is an utterly chic collection of iron furniture that fits into and complements any design style.
