Local Business Spotlight: Graham & Green24 October 2018
For a taste of chic, diverse West London style right here in the heart of Bath, make a beeline for the city’s artisan quarter and the new Graham & Green Bath store.
This formerly London-only brand, which has shops in Primrose Hill, Bayswater and Notting Hill, was established in 1974. It’s a family run business, established by Antonia Graham and now run by Jamie, Lou and their son Max.
The family has now moved out of London and luckily for Bath residents and visitors, has made a former bakehouse on Walcot Street into its new headquarters – and Graham & Green’s only store outside of Bath. Speaking of the move on the company’s website, furniture designer Jamie says:
“We fell in love with Somerset’s picturesque landscape and Bath’s architecture. Being right in the heart of the city’s artisan quarter is perfect for us; we’re surrounded by inspirational independent businesses and interior design shops. It’s the perfect place to come for a weekend away; the whole city is brimming with good food, a creative atmosphere and endless design inspiration”.
What to expect at Graham & Green Bath
While strong family values form the backbone of the business, the brand is mainly known for one thing – style. The Graham & Green furniture specialists work with designers, artisans and crafters from all over the world, as well as supporting local industries.
Whether shopping in-store in Bath or on the Graham & Green website, you can browse exceptional quality, beautifully-made furniture and homewares.
