Read on to find out more about Robinson of England’s founder, David Robinson.
From my early days as Marketing Director of a small fashion house, I had a natural flair for the style people wanted to achieve. The Chesterfield sofa is probably one of the most iconic design statements we have ever known. This is why it still lives as strongly today as it did 150 years ago! Of course, as with many things, we know that there are ‘Chesterfields in style’ and then there are ‘real Chesterfields’. It is the latter that we endeavour to craft for our clients here at Robinson of England.
Now, 15 years on, we have amassed a comprehensive stock of all manner of Chesterfields. From the luxury of our new Signature Chesterfield sofa range to the character of a 150-year-old antique piece, we have it all.
We have a buzzing team of passionate Chesterfield enthusiasts as well, who really take pride in their work. I love all of our furniture and with our Manner 1 crafting option, we are able to offer quite simply the finest sofas and true legacy pieces.
We provide the ultimate in luxury.
Horse tail-filled, hand dyed, fully hand tacked and with fully coil-sprung seats, arms and back — these are the quintessential pieces! However, we understand that not all of our clients are looking to commission a Manner 1 sofa, which is why we also craft in Manner 2 and 3.
I think it’s important to be able to offer the right Chesterfield sofa to every individual. Whatever piece you decide on, we help you understand exactly what it is you are buying. We have a Chesterfield to suit every mood, each defined by colour, style and condition. For us, it’s all about giving you the information you need as a customer to make the right decision for you. Commercial work also makes up a primary part our company.
We’ve worked alongside designers in London on projects such as Dunhill’s flagship store in Beijing, Google’s head office reception, Harris & Hoole and Red Bull. Our impressive client list goes on. With us, you can be confident of an in-depth knowledge, passion and understanding that will help you to find your perfect Chesterfield sofa.
