Traditionally upholstered in Dorset using solid beech and mahogany frames, made from the finest seasoned timber and both dowelled and glued for maximum strength. Each seat is individually hand sprung with coil springs, sewn in by hand using time honoured upholstery methods that have been passed down from father to son.
By combining the skills of craftsmen across the world - the hand carving culturaly ingrained in the South Pacific with the tried and tested upholstering techniques passed through the generations of British upholsterers - we are able to present an exclusive collection of stunning upholstery available to cover in an almost huge range of fabrics.
Brights of Nettlebed patrimony stems from Biggs of Maidenhead, an antique dealership established in 1866 and contributors to the publication Queen Anne & Georgian Looking Glasses, by F. Lewis Hinkley. Many of the antique mirrors which passed through Biggs' books are now in Brights' archive, and many designs are based thereon along with mirrors at auctions by Sotheby's and Christies over the past 20 years.
Brights of Nettlebed are associated with an art studio of several extremely talented artists, each having their own individual achievements and areas of speciality. We have the experience to assist in you in commissioning a reproduction or an original, painted by hand by an established artist.
Very few traditional weaving families with the required knowledge and skill remain, meaning sourcing rugs of this quality can be extremely difficult and for the majority, not viable. However, we believe in supporting the traditions and making the additional effort to present unrivalled products to our clients. The families have been personally visited by Brights of Nettlebed's chairman and director, Robert and Henry Stamp to ensure the quality of materials and manufacture, appropriate human rights are adhered to and that the community is supported.
