Jonathan Charles Fine Furniture is the vision of Jonathan Sowter, an English furniture designer who excels at the art of fine antique reproduction. They design and manufacture the highest-quality European antique replicas as well as our own unique transitional designs, which are distributed to the best shops and interior designers throughout North America, U.K., Spain, Italy, and France, just to name a few.
What makes Jonathan Charles different is their meticulous attention-to-detail and pursuit of high-quality construction. Their passion for detail is also reflected in the in-house brass foundry, in which they manufacture their own hardware so that when they design a new piece of furniture they can also design one-of-a-kind pulls, hinges, locks and even keys for that piece.
Jonathan Charles works with artisans who display a large range of skills. They take pride in their work, which is evident in our beautifully-crafted antique replicas. They go far beyond just creating furniture that resembles English classics, and they employ age-old techniques, which breathe soul and lasting-quality into our products.
Jonathan Charles never compromise on design and would be foolish to compromise on quality. Only the finest materials are used in their furniture. They employ inspectors that ensure technically-sound components and design throughout the process. These experts oversee production, checking in at key transaction points so that nothing is overlooked. Before an item is packaged, it is reviewed with a keen eye and must pass a comprehensive checklist by our quality control inspector.
