The collection is designed by Leo, who, having been immersed in the world of furniture and works of art for over 25 years, felt it was a natural progression to create his own designs, made by some of the first craftsmen in England, many of whom Leo has known since his days at Christie’s. The designs are influenced by his love of early 19th Century Decorative Arts, and the works of Soane and Hope, but pared down to create a studied, elegant and modern look.
All our furniture is built for us by hand in England, by specialist craftsmen and craftswomen, many of whom we have known for 20 years. Each piece is made to order in a variety of timbers and finishes – which we will be happy to advise on. The beech frames for our sofas and chairs are made here and then covered in our upholstery workshops, every button back, bullion fringe and brass banded frame is made to order.
