Villiers Forbes Portfolio 2009
Villiers Forbes was formed by Greg O'Connor to fulfil a long term ambition to design and manufacture high quality furniture. Joined by college mate and fellow designer Jason Brown, the pair plan to offer some of the finest examples of restrained modern style and honest British craftsmanship.
Villiers Forbes furniture is different and individual. How? Well firstly we don't mass produce our pieces by the million, we only produce small batches and limited editions, so our pieces are pretty exclusive and collectible. Secondly we combine materials and techniques to give you the flair and individuality of the finest hand craftsmanship with the accuracy and precision of engineering production.
