About Us

With an uncompromising commitment to British manufacturing, Soane’s mission is to design and make enduring and life-enhancing furniture, lighting, fabrics and wallpapers through collaborations with a network of some of the best craftspeople in Britain.

Since 1997, the integrity of the manufacturing process has underpinned all Soane’s work. Every single piece is made in Britain, using a network of workshops that excel in traditional crafts. The evolving collections include entirely new designs as well as pieces inspired by antique originals. Soane has showrooms in London, New York and San Francisco.

Meeting craftsmen and women on a summer-long road trip in 1997, co-founder Lulu Lytle’s vision was to make well–designed furniture which had the quality and longevity of the best antiques.

From blacksmiths to cabinet-makers, saddlers to ceramicists, rattan weavers to precision engineers, Soane now collaborates with some of Britain’s finest makers, and has become a showcase for the best of the country’s established and new craft industries.

British Craftsmanship: Nurturing Skills for Future generations

Soane is proud to champion British crafts, celebrating the enthusiasm and pride in workmanship shared by all its makers in order to create furniture, lighting, fabrics and wallpapers. Soane is determined to secure the future of traditional crafts by investing in its workshops, most notably reviving the last remaining rattan weaving workshop in the country, where it has established an apprenticeship programme.

Our Commitment to Rattan Craftsmanship

Whilst superb craftsmanship underpins all that Soane does, nowhere is this more evident than in the designs made in its rattan workshop. The Soane rattan story is one of making furniture and lighting, founded on integrity and longevity, whilst reviving an almost extinct British industry. In 2010, after 8 years working with Angraves, the last rattan workshop in England, Lulu received news that it was going into administration. The fear of losing these specialist skills from Britain forever, ending the tradition of rattan weaving in Leicester since 1886, gave Lulu the courage to establish Soane’s own Leicestershire workshop. Soane is proud to have now initiated its own thriving apprenticeship scheme to foster skills passed down over generations.

Enduring & Life-enhancing Designs

The Soane principles of elegant proportions, bespoke materials and the integrity of the manufacturing process were established from the outset. Soane’s evolving collections include furniture, lighting, fabrics and wallpapers, with many pieces inspired by the best antiques, as well as entirely new designs. Every design is made in Britain to the highest standards of craftsmanship with the aim of contributing to the joyful atmosphere of any interior.

Creative freedom: Custom & Bespoke

Soane collaborates closely with a network of talented craftsmen and women across Britain to ensure pieces are exceptionally well-made and employ the best quality materials. The made-to-order designs can be customised using an extensive selection of in-house materials and specialist finishes. Alternatively, you may use your own materials. The Soane Bespoke service is also available to those wishing to commission an entirely bespoke piece.
