Charles Barr Mahogany Furniture Collection

  2. 2. Charles Barr Collection The name of Charles Barr dates back well over 100 years to the latter part of the 19th Century. It was in 1861 that a chair maker by the name of Charles Barr set up a workshop in the parish of Shoreditch in London. With the assistance of his three sons the business flourished but it was the influence of Charles Barr’s youngest son Ernest that changed the company from a chair maker to a company specialising in what would have then been considered to be furniture of the period drawing inspiration from such Joint Managing Directors, Danny Bryan (left) and Kevin designers as Robert Adam, George Hepplewhite, Thomas Sheraton and Hutchins (right) Thomas Chippendale. With the passing of time the company faded into near obscurity and it was not until the late 1940’s that the name of Charles Barr was resurrected by a London businessman by the name of Wilfred Griffiths. Relying mainly on outside manufacturing sources the company grew and began once again to be successful, but it was the appointment of two key members of staff Bryan and Hutchins, together with the interest of a business entrepreneur by the name of Chris Stockwell that saw the business move to a new level. Two new factory sites were set up at Sandy, Bedfordshire and Wroxham, Norfolk. These production facilities saw the company increase its range of furniture which was now being designed and made in house by the Bryan and Hutchins partnership. In 1992 a Management buy out saw Bryan and Hutchins take control of the business and since this time the company’s product range has been significantly developed to incorporate the decorative traditional style that Charles Barr is known and renowned for. Supplying most of the better quality independent outlets throughout the UK the company also exports its furniture all over the world to countries such as the USA, Japan, Russia and Europe. With a standard range of furniture which is second to none the company also provides a complete bespoke service from the original concept and design stage through to final production and delivery.opulent Today with so many imports flooding the UK and the country’s manufacturing base on the decline the Charles Barr story continues. grandeur 4 Training schools have been set up at both Wroxham and Sandy factories tosophisticated ensure that traditional cabinet making and polishing skills are not lost. To these methods the company has added modern technology and innovations regal 20 ensuring that Charles Barr furniture is even stronger than an original andelegant more tolerant of changes in heat or humidity and no longer the exclusive preserve of the very wealthy. traditional 24stylish PLEASE NOTE: All dimensions on the following pages are rounded to the nearest centimetre or inch. trafalgar 32
