Sofas are hand crafted and made to order from the finest materials, sourced from around the world.
Our leathers are natural, have character and age beautifully. All our wood comes from sustainable forests and our shapely legs are hand turned and polished to perfection. Fillings are super soft, mixing feather, foam and fibre.
We test to the highest British standards, (including our own A&J bottom test!)
Artistic Director, Mark (Alexander) Smith, is a creative furniture designer with Northern soul. Comfort is his passion which means every sofa is made to sink into and every button stool made for feet up! Whichever country he awakes in is where he is looking for something new and inspiring to bring home to the A&J Drawing Room.
Home is deep in the Derbyshire countryside with illustrator wife, Julie, and two boys, Oska and Ned, not forgetting exceptionally naughty dog, Gus, (who has been known to chew the odd foot stool or two). And when Mark isn’t making sofas, he can be found with tennis racket in hand and phone no doubt in the other!
Managing Director, David (James) Lee, has a head for numbers, an eye for detail and penchant for purple suits. A lover of design and British heritage, he wanted to create a brand that could build upon years of expert knowledge with a fashionable twist to create signature pieces for your home.
Born and bred in rural Staffordshire, he has spent most of his working life in the industrial heartlands of England. When not surrounded by spreadsheets, he spends family time tucked away deep in the Worcestershire countryside with wife Debbie and children Alexandra and James. David fancies himself as a man of wine, especially red, and loves nothing more than relaxing with a glass whilst listening to Rock music.
