In 1978 Martin Taylor started his antiques company specialising in furniture from the eighteenth century to the 1930’s. His particular love was Victorian and Edwardian furniture. As time went by he found that more and more people bought his furniture for hotels, restaurants and pubs as centrepieces or bought sets of reclaimed chairs for dining.
Martin realised that to complement his antique furniture he needed to be able to supply new furniture that could be supplied in repeatable styles and in volume so since 2008 he has brought together a unique collection of chairs, tables, stools and benches that represent the best in British furniture over the past 250 years from Chippendale to Arts and Crafts. Our new reproduction furniture has been manufactured especially for the contract and hospitality markets.
As well as a great product range Taylor’s Classics also has an excellent team of craftsmen trained in the arts of restoration and skilled in manufacturing bespoke pieces of furniture. From veneering to French polishing the team are able to restore furniture that will last for many more years. Our sales team work with customers throughout the UK and around the world. We work closely with interior designers to develop a specification and with a wide variety of customers that include owner managed pubs and restaurant or hotel groups that want to build a chain.
We are passionate about our furniture and we take pride in making our customers happy. We hope that by viewing this website you will see why many people believe that Taylor’s Classics is the leading designer, manufacturer and restorer of traditional furniture.
