Christopher Howe has sourced antiques from around the globe for their unique provenance, exceptional quality and character for over 30 years. His deep understanding and appreciation for the design and craftsmanship of these antiques has led to a huge inventory of fine old pieces and has informed a diverse and acclaimed collection of new Made by Howe furniture and lighting.
Each new design is hand crafted in Britain by our dedicated band of highly skilled and experienced craftsmen.
Our Bespoke Made by HOWE collection allows our customers the opportunity to commission furniture to suit their interior, adapting the size, fabric and detailing – making each new piece truly personal. Contact our friendly orders team for more information.
Our Pimlico Road showroom and 7,000 sq ft Battersea warehouse could furnish everything from a converted sheep shed or your daughter’s first flat to a complete country house or even a room or two of Hampton Court Palace.
“The furniture and materials Christopher Howe selects and designs seem to transcend time and space, at once charmingly period and strikingly modern, without a hint of stuffiness… every object is alluring and useful and bewitchingly timeless.” New York Times
It is our mission to provide our clients with furniture of the very best quality and value for money. We believe good value for money represents the most advantageous combination of cost, quality and sustainability. For us cost takes into account the longevity of the piece. By choosing only the best materials, the best methods and the best craftsmen, our furniture is made to last a lifetime and beyond. We envisage Howe furniture as the antiques of the future.
“Our furniture might seem expensive but broken down there is no disputing the good-value of great-craftsmanship” Christopher Howe
“I’ve worked with Christopher for over thirty years now, creating furniture with total dedication to traditional methods under Chris’s keen eye. The best designs just keep evolving, as they would have done in the 18th century, becoming evermore courageous. This paw [of the Pawfoot Bench] for example, started off as a simple provincial rendition and as we worked took on a life of their own. It’s wonderful to think of them standing proudly now in the National Gallery” Roy Smith
