Every Soane Britain design is made in Britain in small workshops that excel in traditional crafts, such as iron forging, chair making, precision engineering and saddlery. Their design and production teams work closely with the craftsmen to ensure exceptionally well-made, classic and enduring designs. Orders are made with the client’s choice of materials and finishes from Soane Britain’s in-house collection of woods, stones, metals and leathers. Alternatively, clients’ own material may be used. They are well known for wicker furniture and lighting which is all made in the last wicker weaving workshop in Britain.
Soane Britain’s patterned and plain fabrics are woven and hand-printed in British mills and workshops to Lytle’s own designs. Wallpapers are hand blocked by expert English printers. A bespoke service in furniture, lighting, fabrics and wallpapers is also available to clients.
Soane Britain’s clients include international interior designers, decorators and architects with their designs found in many important private homes, chalets and yachts around the world as well as hotels, restaurants, members clubs, boardrooms and retail spaces.
