One of them, Arthur, an antiques dealer, gradually expanded into reproductions, setting up as Arthur Brett in the 1920s with elegant showrooms in St Giles Street, Norwich.

Arthur Brett and Arthur Brett Architectural, now make up part of a family of superb traditional furniture brands which represent the best of English Fine furniture-making; gracing the finest homes, financial institutions, hotels and Royal residences internationally.
