Our Heritage & Our Family

Our founder started his career designing cabinetry under the guidance of Terence Conran in the 1970s, where he fell in love with contemporary design
In 1988 the iconic British retailer Heal’s approached Roger to start an upholstery design and manufacturing house. Over the next 25 years, Roger and his wife Pat worked relentlessly to make furniture for Heal’s and a host of British retailers, as well as raising their three children Mollie, Nick and Francesca.

Fast forward to today and whilst Pat and Roger are focused on grandchildren, the business is owned and run by the second generation. Nick has taken over the design reins as the Design Director and Nick’s borther in law, Marc is our Managing Director.
