From the archives ... the Covent Garden workshop

From the archives ... the Covent Garden workshop

June 2017

In the early days of Luke Hughes, the Covent Garden workshop was so small that larger pieces of furniture had to be assembled in the back-streets outside. 

Here is one of a set of circular benches being made in 1987 for a shopping centre in Harrow, London (and they’re still there, thirty years later!). Pictured above are craftsmen Joss Skottowe (left) and Mark Adams (kneeling) and the team’s able administrator, Christian Jebb (behind).

The images come from the company’s vast archive of photos and drawings accumulated over the last four decades, only now the subject of a proper archive retrieval exercise.
