Howard Chairs

This is a list of our current stock of chairs made by Howard and Sons. Please enquire if you do not see what you are looking for.

Howard and Sons Armchair

Howard and Sons armchair, this chair is the huge and very comfortable Titchfield model which is almost as big as a chaise longue or a day bed! This one is in remarkably good condition still in its original H&S ticking which means that it still has its wonderful down cushions and original springs in place.
This Howard chair was made in October 1966 by George Webb, at one time the director of Howard Chairs. From such illustrious beginnings it must have lead a very charmed life to have survived in such good condition. We found this chair in Ireland and we would love to know the story of where it has been and who owned it for the last fifty eight years.
This might be the actual largest and is definitely the equal largest Howard chair that we have had in stock.

Pair of Easy Armchairs by Howard and Sons of London

A very rare pair of Howard and Sons chairs standing on ball and claw feet. These chairs are large and comfortable. They are stamped Berners Street which is the earlier and most desirable period for these comfortable chairs. There is some writing on the original back cushions but it is hard to make out the name of this chair. They are the same size as a deep seated Bridgewater but they are likely to have a different name with this special order leg. The price includes all restoration to the woodwork and upholstery except for the price of the fabric itself. Please ask about fabric options or simply send us your own fabric at no extra charge.

Two Antique Turned Leg Bridgewater Easy Armchairs by Howard and Sons of London

Two Bridgewater model armchairs made by Howard and Sons of London.
These two chairs stand on the earlier sort of turned legs for which the company is so well known. These chairs are currently upholstered in sprung horsehair with no feather cushions. This method of upholstery lends itself to applications where the plumping of cushions is to be avoided, such as high use or public areas. The cushionless Bridgewater is also the ideal model to be upholstered in thick fabric or leather, neither of which work very well with down feathers. However, all the systems of upholstery have the same frame shape and, as when new, these chairs can be upholstered with a plain, waisted or button back or they can also be re-upholstered using the famous siege de duvet system which makes them so very comfortable.

Pair of Grafton Armchairs made by Howard and Sons

Pair of antique armchairs made by Howard and Sons of London. This pair are the shape of Grafton chairs except with a P shaped arm. As can be seen in the photographs, one of these is plain back and one is button back. Howard chairs were available with plain back, button back, waisted back or the siege de duvet system. Included in the cost is full restoration to any of the above finishes. Siege de duvet is my favourite.

Pair of Antique Grafton Model Howard and Sons Chairs

Pair of Howard and Sons chairs, Grafton model, stamped Howard and Sons Berners Street. The pair of chairs in question have square taper legs not turned ones as pictured here. The fabric is the same, but can of course be changed.

English circa 1910 £15800



Howard and Sons Bridgewater Chair

Howard and Sons Bridgewater armchair with square taper legs and with siege de duvet upholstery. Certainly the favourite model for several of us here at Hares. Let us know if you want a pair as there are always more in the pipeline, but their casters hardly touch the ground so quickly do they fly out the door.

English circa 1910 £6,800


Howard and Sons Tub Chair

Good early Howard and Sons tub chair standing on the classic Howard turned leg and stamped cup casters. This chair has been reupholstered recently and the internals are in good order with some minor marks and damage to the fabric.

Howard and Sons Bridgewater model armchair

Howard and Sons Bridgewater model armchair. These are the most popular of the comfortable Howards. It is smaller than the Harley and Ivor of the same shape and is also smaller than the Grafton model which is a different shape.
