New Brand Feature: Meet Jonathan Charles

by |

Jonathan Charles Fine Furniture offers antique furniture replications that combine the beauty and history of antique furniture without compromising quality or stability. As the years pass, beautiful antique furniture pieces begin to fade and their functionality starts to dwindle. Jonathan Charles Fine Furniture seeks to reconcile this problem by offering replications of antique furniture that mirror their predecessors but bring improved quality and a longer life-span. The result is a structurally sound furniture piece with breathtaking design that you are free to use in your everyday life without fear of damaging a hundred-year-old antique.

Specializing in creating European antique replicas as well as unique traditional designs, Jonathan Charles Fine Furniture is a trusted brand adored by many and distributed across the world. Jonathan Sowter, an English furniture designer, began Jonathan Charles Fine Furniture with the vision of creating furniture pieces with an unprecedented attention-to-detail and high-quality construction. His dream became a reality with the company’s start in 2004. Beginning with just ten employees, Jonathan Charles Fine Furniture expanded to over 1,398 employees by 2011.

At its core, Jonathan Charles Fine Furniture values quality. They take pride in their work which employs age-old techniques that breathe soul and lasting-quality into their products. Artisans work to craft accurate replicas of English classics that also maintain the highest level of quality and style. They only use materials of the finest quality in their furniture, and inspectors ensure that each piece is technically-sound. These inspectors also oversee production, check in at key transaction points, and review a comprehensive checklist before any piece is packaged.

One way that the company achieves this high level of expertise is through their in-house brass factory. This factory allows them to manufacture their own hardware. In-house manufactured hardware means every piece of furniture features one-of-a-kind pulls, hinges, locks and even keys for that piece. Through this meticulous attention to detail, Jonathan Charles furniture aims to constantly expand into new markets, while continuing to be a brand synonymous with the finer things in life.

Jonathan Sowter finds much of the inspiration for his furniture from his own travels around the globe. Through venturing across the world, Sowter draws unique ideas from sights and design aesthetics he picks up from other cultures. Whether he replicates exactly what he’s seen or he uses one aspect of an inspiring piece to create an entirely different line, Jonathan Charles furniture is full of innovative ideas that honor the classics of the past. Often times the design process starts completely from scratch. The designers may pull inspiration from antique wallpaper, nature, classic antiques, a rare object, or jewelry. From the drawing board, the production stage begins. The company is sure to never be limited by their workplace. They expanded their factory to develop new skills in advanced marquetry, bronze casting, hand carving and more to accommodate their growing creativity.
