MAPLE & CO - LONDON (Paris and Buenos Aires)


Maple & Co was once the largest furniture retailer and manufacturer in the world.  The company was most prolific in the late Victorian and Edwardian era, specialising in fine quality Arts & Crafts Furniture, designed and produced in their own workshops. However, they continued producing fine quality furniture up until the 1980s.

Maple & Co was established by John Maple, a shopkeeper from Horley, Surrey, who later opened a furniture shop in Tottenham Court Road, London. However it was his son, John Blundell Maple , who made Maple & Co a success. With exceptional business skills, John B. Maple took over the company while still a young man. By the 1880s they were the largest furniture store in the world, exported their fine furniture to every continent.  Maples manufactured their luxury furniture entirely in-house, at a huge modern complex. A timber importer and furniture exporter, they landed prestigious contracts furnishing fine houses, hotels, embassies and palaces in Europe; among them Tsar Nicholas’s Winter Palace and the Hofburg Imperial Palace in Vienna. Never compromising on quality, Maples produced a huge catalogue of fine furniture, covering every avenue of interior design from Chippendale Revival to Aesthetic styles to Art Nouveau designs – all from the same catalogue.
