Always at the forefront of fashion, Holland & Sons employed some of England's leading designers and participated in many of the most important international Exhibitions of 1855, 1862, 1867, 1872 and 1878.
Howard and Sons was established by John Howard at 24 Orange Street London in 1820. In 1854 the firm was established in the heart of the West End at 22 and 36 Berners Street. They employed their eclectic range of styles working for many prestigious clients at important houses such as Sudbury Hall in Derbyshire and Elton Hall, Huntingdonshire.
Howard and Sons of London were one of the best upholstery makers of the Victorian era. They were as well known as the antique furniture makers Gillows for the quality and styles of furniture. In fact Howard and Sons worked together with Gillows on several occasions and it is said that they manufactured pieces of upholstered furniture for Gillows and other renowned makers such as Holland & Sons.
Howard and Sons chairs were shown at large exhibitions around the world and they supplied several Royal homes.
Howard and Sons were mainly well known for upholstered antique easy armchairs, sofas, wing chairs and chaise longue. They only used the finest materials and made their chairs for comfort. They mainly used traditional upholstering techniques such as tenon jointed frames, stitched front edging and they used solid woods for the frames so their chairs were not just comfortable pieces of furniture, but also hard wearing and built to last.
