Designs with Personality Spirited, luxurious, lyrical - these are our keywords. The Nigel Coates furniture and lighting collection combines craftsmanship with witty reconfiguration. Whether a chair or sofa, a chandelier or a wine glass, Coates’ idiosyncratic interpretation enlivens the home. From the well worn to the pure and simple, our collection has enough breadth to enhance any stylistic mood. Ideas are drawn from the underbelly of British culture, the talismans of the Italian design or the natural world. We usually manufacture in Italy in collaboration with our wide-ranging network of makers. Most pieces can be viewed in our HQ in Bloomsbury, Central London. We are happy to work with contract customers and will ship worldwide.
