Arthur Brett

Arthur Brett’s roots in furniture date back five generations as far as the early 19th century with chairmaker John Brett, born in Norfolk in 1815. In 1870, his son Jonathan T. Brett founded the company making and selling furniture with his six sons. 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.

The company’s experience in restoring priceless antiques gave Arthur and his team of craftsmen the expertise to create authentic and museum-standard reproductions. This tradition of quality and craftsmanship continues to the present day.

Over the years, the firm has established its reputation for making the finest English furniture, with their committed teams of craftsmen, most of whom have served the firm for decades. They have passed down to successive generations the traditional skills and techniques of which any 18th century cabinetmaker would be proud. With this wealth of history and experience Arthur Brett can offer the finest handcrafted bespoke furniture for 21st century living.

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.
