Specialist furniture makers with a global reputation

As a leading bespoke furniture maker with a strong focus on the high-end, residential interior design market, ijlbrown has come a long way since it began over 40 years ago. A family-run business with workshops in Herefordshire and a highly talented and knowledgeable team of craftsmen, the company’s showroom on the King’s Road in Chelsea is a hidden gem for many leading interior designers and their clients. Their country workshops produce exclusively designed collections and individual one-off items for the design trade, as well as for residential clients looking for that ideal piece of furniture to fit their unique space (over 80 per cent of ijlbrown’s work is bespoke).

 

Using modern materials combined with traditional methods, their craftsmen make each piece by hand, producing furniture of a distinctively high standard. The company also has production facilities in the Far East that are capable of making items for larger commercial projects, where price, volume and quality are crucial elements. The move towards cleaner, more refined lines can be seen in the Hoxton Collection, where walnut furniture features detailed starburst veneers and highlights of polished metal inlays with faux shagreen drawer fronts. Exclusive ranges such as the Cambridge Collection – a constantly evolving range of occasional furniture in an ageless, classic style – and the modern accent Brompton Collection, (which references art deco and mid-century furniture in satin brass and antiqued mirror), are typical of the new products that ijlbrown is continually introducing to the market.

The King’s Road showroom offers a new interior consultation service, with an in-house design team that advises on furniture and placement within the home

Alongside the furniture, their showrooms feature a dedicated gallery of pieces from lighting producer Visual Comfort, including top designer names such as Aerin, Kelly Wearstler and Barbara Barry. Their hand- picked accessories from Europe add the finishing touches to any interior project and, in response to demand from residential clients, the King’s Road showroom offers a new interior consultation service, with an in-house design team that advises on furniture and placement within the home.

Key projects include: Gleneagles, Hide Restaurant, The Langham, Burgh Island, and The Marylebone and Kensington hotels. Flexibility is integral (product finishes can be adapted to suit either a traditional or contemporary scheme) as is the level of service: ijlbrown pledges always to go the extra mile to deliver its absolute best. This commitment starts from the initial meeting to discuss a commission through to final delivery by the in-house team of installers. What really sets the company apart, though, is its ability to excel with both tables and chairs – surprisingly rare for a furniture maker – whether in off-the-shelf collections or bespoke designs. This is a business with heritage and tradition at its core, yet looking to push the boundaries of furniture making for the future.
