The Company Modern classic fabric designs on high quality pre-loved furniture, produced in England

With almost twenty five years design experience you can be assured that our work is meticulous and every piece we produce has excellence as standard. Our design inspirations can come from anywhere but each piece is unique, giving the customer the assurance that the design on their chair will never be seen anywhere else.

The fabrics we use are hard wearing but washable, and we use high quality antique (mainly pre 1970, sometimes as far back as the 1920s and 30s) chairs sourced from auctions and sales and checked for their sturdiness and use of robust hardwoods. Where we can we leave the original components of the piece intact, only replacing webbing, springs, padding and frame where absolutely necessary. If possible we only do minimal restoration to exposed areas of the original piece, such as legs, as we believe those signs of use and wear form part of the essential character of the item.

As well as selling many unique items we also undertake commissions - if you have a design you'd like to see on a chair then we can supply it onto fabric for you, or then upholster it onto a chair of yours, or supply the whole finished product.

Edward Lefroy

Edward Lefroy is the founder and principle designer of the company. He has been a graphic designer for almost twenty five years, his work ranging from designing over 30 national magazine titles, artwork for record and film companies, designing and running his own clothing label, as well as a myriad other design projects. His work has won both regional and national awards.

In 2010 he inherited a large amount of antique furniture needing urgent restoration, including several period armchairs. He decided to personalize them in his own classic-modern style, found a ready market waiting for them and so Lambert & Stamp was born.

Inspiration can come from anywhere: ‘I can find I’m inspired by anything… old book covers, jazz record covers, pop art, travel posters… but mainly I’m inspired by the idea of creating a new brand that takes inspiration from classic English design and looks forward to making some classic pieces for the future’.

He divides his time between London and his beachside house in Cornwall.
