Ian and Joyce Brown established the company some 30 years ago specialising in English country antique chairs. The company soon grew to include a workshop to produce the bespoke items that were increasingly being commissioned. Today I & JL Brown is a family business recognised around the world not only for our unparalleled collection of English and French country furniture but for the skill of our craftsmen and the quality and variety of furniture that we make. Antiques remain an important part of our heritage and we continue to hand pick interesting and unusual examples from the UK and Europe to complement our London and Hereford showrooms.
Our furniture is built and finished by hand in our own Herefordshire workshops. We use only the finest, hand selected timbers which can then be stained, painted and distressed to your own specifications. Our trained and knowledgeable team can help you with all the design options that we offer. For example the same table can look quite different if made to suit a contemporary setting with clean lines and a light distress than if ordered in a more heavily distressed finished for a traditional home. Think of it as having your own design team at your disposal willing to make you that one piece of furniture you have always had in your mind but just can't find. We use our wealth of antiques, museum pieces and historical documents as inspiration for new designs and so are more than happy to tackle any unsual request that you may have.
We also carry an ever changing eclectic mix of lighting, decorative objects, furnishing fabrics and gifts for the home that we carefully hand pick and select from around the world. Our showrooms are well worth a visit to be able to see the extent of the selection that we have available. Our highly experienced sales teams will also be able to help guide you to the item of furniture that you have always wanted but could not find.
