Harvey Brown has been established for over 15 years, designing and manufacturing traditionally upholstered bespoke furniture. Their experience in antique furniture for 30 years means they are ideally suited to create new sofas and chairs using traditional skills. Initially, the demand came from existing clients, who were looking for high quality handmade furniture.

They specialise in producing hand stained leather armchairs inspired by their restoration projects. Experts in their field they have created stunning pieces of furniture that would sit perfectly in any home.

Included in their range is the Paris chair, which has been upholstered using natural fillings and hand stained leather to recreate an original 1920’s style. While the Stanley chair has a deep seat to give a very relaxed feel. All seat cushions in their chairs are filled with duck & down and covered in either hand stained leather or fabric.

The latest addition to the Harvey Brown Collection is the Abbey chair upholstered using natural fillings, hand tied coil springs, with a duck & down filled seat cushion. Their leather staining techniques reveal the natural patina of the hide, making each chair individual in appearance and feel.

They also specialise in the restoration and conservation of leather club armchairs & sofas, using hand-staining techniques on new leather to match the colour of the existing hide. Careful consideration is given to preserving and restoring the original leather & upholstery to retain the authenticity of the furniture.

Other projects include the Dudley Chair, which has laminated and veneered arms with a deep upholstered seat and back - a small but exceptionally comfortable chair.

Their upholstered ottomans with turned legs also come covered in kilim, horsehair or vintage carpets and can be made to any size!

They have a small highly skilled team of upholsterers, with new staff trained in house to keep standards high. They undertake individual commissions, working closely with clients throughout the process.

Harvey Brown’s workshops are located in Tolleshunt D’Arcy, a small Essex village on the East Coast south of Colchester. However they work throughout the United Kingdom and Europe, with a stockist in the United States.
