Company history

Lulu Lytle and Christopher Hodsoll founded Soane Britain on the Pimlico Road in 1997 designing beautiful furnishings, which are hand-made in Britain to give lasting pleasure. Since then Soane has become defined by its exquisite craftsmanship, elegant proportions and deliciously English sense of the exuberant.

With uncompromising commitment to British manufacturing, all of Soane’s furniture, lighting and fabrics are made in workshops around Britain. For nearly 20 years Soane has sought out and cultivated relationships with dedicated artisans practicing prized skills such as iron forging, fine chair making, precision engineering and saddlery.

Soane is proud to have secured the future of British-made rattan by the acquisition in 2011 of the last surviving rattan weaving workshop in Britain.  An apprenticeship scheme has been established, ensuring that these skills are fostered and developed.

Producing the handmade collection locally allows the quality to be constantly monitored and ensures a personal, collaborative relationship between Soane’s design studio, the workshops and our clients.
