The 13 statement furniture pieces are the material form of the Taylor Howes renowned design philosophy; an underlying structure of perfect proportion and immaculate symmetry, enriched through the poetics of colour, exceptional craftsmanship and exquisite materials. Important to note that all furniture is produced in Britain.

Each statement piece possesses the same transformative qualities, setting the scene for glamorous, elevated living. Striking lines and graceful curves; rich navy blue, a colour synonymous with Taylor Howes, opulent gold and copper for trims and detailing. Specialist artisans were selected to develop hand-crafted finishes including aged-silver leaf dégradée, hand-dyed parchment and gold-thread ombré.
After successfully designing interiors around the world and a popular lighting collection in 2014, Taylor Howes for the Urban Electric Co, this new capsule collection is set to raise the benchmark for luxury furniture.
A key piece in the collection is the Midnight Sofa, built around a solid wood frame with a deep seat and low back cushion for supreme comfort, this collection piece carves a graceful silhouette in a rich midnight blue velvet fabric, accented with a studded rose gold metal trim.
The decorative cushion in Midnight collection features ‘golden’ owl from Chanel earlier sketches and completed in golden threat.
