Furniture brand celebrates 30 years with new range

British furniture maker Roger Lewis has launched a new contract furniture collection, Kyoto.

Aiming to bring the bespoke craftsmanship and unique design more often associated with residential furniture into the contract market, the launch comes as Roger Lewis celebrates its 30th birthday, and is the debut collection of up-and-coming British designer, Richard Jones.

Utilising Roger Lewis’ renowned experience of residential furniture design, Kyoto combines a stylish and modern design with comfort and functionality required for contract furniture pieces.

The range also sees Roger Lewis offer a more versatile portfolio of products, with the collection featuring bar stools, tables and privacy sofas – a first for the brand.

“I wanted to take the strengths that Roger Lewis is known for, such as fine-tailoring and enduring timelessness, and repackage them within a form that would stand up to the demands of a contract environment,” explains designer, Richard Jones.

“We didn’t want a product that felt like a traditional contract piece of furniture, we wanted a piece you’d be happy to have in your home.”

“When I first saw the designs for the Kyoto range, I thought they definitely had the Roger Lewis ‘handwriting’,” adds Nick Lewis, design director at Roger Lewis.

“The collection offers something different to your standard contract furniture, with its softness and ‘uniqueness’ of design.”
