Wonderful matched pair of 19th Cent Country House Howard & Sons Sofas The company was first started in the year 1820 and almost after 25 years ventured into the upholstered furniture business. The year 1848 saw a major boom in the business of the company and from then on they were on an uphill climb towards becoming one of the best. Few years down the line in the year 1869, the company brought together all its shops under one roof and later the company won its Royal Warrants in 1901 after becoming a limited company. After 1935, popular decorators Lenygon and Morant took over as the ‘Makers of Howard Chairs and Sofas' and continued to take the name forward by creating quality sofas and armchairs.

Howard and Sons have ruled the century as the makers of the finest quality upholstered furniture. They have been the market leaders with their innovation whilst keeping to some of the most traditional techniques of manufacturing. Even today these sofas, armchairs and other items of furniture are very much in demand but are rare. For the modern day collectors these furniture items will definitely prove to be sound investments as their demand and supply equation will surely add to their value with each passing year.
