Since it was founded more than 40 years ago, the Clive Christian Furniture Co has garnered a global reputation for its ultra-luxurious kitchens and bespoke fitted cabinetry. Now under the stewardship of owners David and Heather Dare, the company is once again at the forefront of British manufacturing as it continues to apply the same exacting design principles used in its kitchens to other spaces across the home, including dressing rooms, studies, libraries and bars (of which there has been an increase in enquiries post-lockdown). With showrooms across the UK, US, Europe and now Asia (the company opened in Vietnam earlier this year), Clive Christian Furniture has an impressive international presence yet still remains a valued part of the local Lancashire community, offering apprenticeships in the workshop and investing in skilled craftspeople who wish to keep the tradition of cabinetmaking alive.
Sketched concepts are transformed into technical product designs, uniting beauty and functionality in harmony with the world’s finest materials
lifestyle supplier Glancy Fawcett’s Manchester showroom, it consists of a meeting room, dining area and relaxation space, and will be furnished with a Clive Christian bar, cabinetry and pieces from the brand’s Flare collection.
Also set to be unveiled imminently is the Clive Christian x Glancy Fawcett Client Lounge. In response to a growing number of multi- generation families living together under one roof, the company has seen a rise in requests for more fragmented, flexible living spaces with a dual purpose. Once again home entertaining, dinner parties and the idea of the kitchen as a hub is on trend and having a showpiece space that is both functional and almost art-like in design and finish, is back. 2021 and beyond will see new launches and further extension of the Clive Christian Furniture portfolio, all aimed at an audience looking for future-proof, detail-oriented, imaginative designs that truly elevate a space.
