About Brights of Nettlebed, A Tradition In Fine English Furniture

Brights of Nettlebed has established itself as one of the longest running family operated specialists in classic fine furniture in the United Kingdom. The business is owned and run by Robert & Henry Stamp, whose family have a tradition in antiques and English furniture. Robert's uncle, F. Roy Stamp (collaborator on the book Queen Anne and Georgian Looking Glasses), ran the antique specialists, Biggs of Maidenhead (Est 1866), whose extensive archives are now maintained by Brights. Many of the designs that Brights produce draw influence from this collection of detailed drawings and photographs.

Our Showrooms

Brights’ flagship showrooms are in the village of Nettlebed, in Oxfordshire. Four miles Northwest of the historic riverside town of Henley on Thames. The first showroom, opened forty years ago, was the town’s bakery until the mid-20th century. The huge bread ovens still dominate what is now the ‘Oak Room’. Since taking on these first premises, Brights has grown to include the surrounding buildings. Including a butcher’s, a grocery store, and a very grand Georgian residence. Today, beautiful gardens accompany the Showrooms, which feature thirty-two classically furnished room sets. The 12,000 square feet provides adequate space to display extensive selections of furniture. As well as lighting, room accessories and mirrors embracing the history of English furniture.
Brights of Nettlebed also have established showrooms on the King's Road, a respected part of London’s design community.
We pride ourselves on being the UK's major classical furniture specialist with the largest stocks of reproduction furniture, including traditional sofas, gilt mirrors and handmade cabinetry inspired by the finest Georgian furniture. If you cannot find anything to suit you from our three million pound stocks, we have more than 5,000 previously made designs to order, or we can make any piece of bespoke furniture in any style from any timber.

Our Staff & Services

There is a real emphasis on traditional values at Brights, and all visitors experience a relaxed and highly personalised experience. All Brights staff possess a wealth of knowledge in the furniture industry and are happy to dedicate time to clients ensuring that every purchase is the right one. Brights pride themselves on a discreet, easy and confidential service. Of course, it’s not always possible to make a decision there and then. Therefore Brights are happy to offer a ‘Home Approval’ service, where pieces can be ‘tried out’ at home, on a completely obligation free basis.

Many young people have joined our established teams of skilled craftsmen, designers and sales consultants. Together they are able to supply not only individual pieces of exquisite replica furniture, but also to create total interior design schemes. Once our craftsmen complete the design stage, they will skilfully produce the necessary components using traditional skills such as cabinet making, wood carving, marquetry, French polishing, gilding, inlaying, and upholstering. They have the ability to faithfully replicate any period piece to an unsurpassed level of quality. As a company we have maintained a policy of continual reinvestment. One consequence of this is that we operate entirely from freehold premises. This allows us to pass on savings in overheads to the customer in the form of fair prices. The finest quality and the best value - at Brights of Nettlebed, we look forward to being of service.
