What they say about themselves
It all started with one woman’s trip to India all the way back in 1974.
Antonia strove to be independent, working with a movement of traders to forge her own path to support her family. Antonia created the first ‘lifestyle’ brand that imported exotic homewares from India, Morocco and Europe to the UK.
On Easter Monday in 1974 we opened our first store on Elgin Crescent, Notting Hill. The store became home to Antonia’s exotic and eclectic finds from around the globe, and you can still find us in the same spot today.
1994: Our second independent store opens on Regent’s Park Road, Primrose Hill. This vibrant area perfectly suits our unique-spirited style, and you can visit us in the same spot today.
After enormous success with the G&G stores and mail order catalogue, we take the leap to create our very first website for customers from around the UK to browse and shop at home. The business begins moving from shop and mail order to online, with the help of Jamie who launches the first G&G website in 1999.
2009: To celebrate 35 years of G&G we decided to launch a range of bespoke Birthday products and collaborated with lots of friends to create a range with the lovebirds as the emblem. We picked up a lovebird sticker whilst we were in the market in Goa and loved it so much that we also used it on our wedding invitations!
After 37 years at Graham & Green, Antonia retires. Her legacy leaves two unique boutique stores in London’s most vibrant areas, close relationships with suppliers around the globe and a rich array of memories. Jamie and Lou have already been working very closely with Antonia in their careers at Graham & Green, and take on the roles of Managing Director and Director of Sales & Marketing respectively.
2016: The perfect place to showcase our growing collection of furniture, upholstery, lighting and home accessories. Our flagship store is just around the corner from the inspiring Westbourne Grove and provides enough space for our thriving trade department and design consultancy services.
After moving to Bath a year before, we found ourselves on the inspiring and independent Walcot Street in Bath’s artisan quarter. This soon became home to our first store outside London and the company’s head office.
What their perfect customer looks like
You like a mix of old and new, glamorous and industrial, colour and neutrals. You like to be at the forefront of what is interesting and new, without being a slave to trends.
Curves were everywhere in this Autumn’s design shows, and Graham and Green are on it with this gorgeous curved sofa.
Many of the lights and furniture have Art Deco styling and this chandelier would make an impressive statement in the right room.
Under their “Sustainable” category are these recycled cotton pieces, including a lovely upholstered bench.
- Warehouse Location: Chippenham
- Collection/Viewing: Showrooms in London and Bath
- Returns: 14 days to return, £10 – £48 for courier collection depending on size and type of item
Graham and Green have a rare combination of several showrooms and a strong online presence. They use their smaller size for good, reducing delivery waste where possible and focusing on customer service.
As a small family business we like to be transparent and honest about our delivery costs. We don’t make any profit from delivering products to our customers and have chosen to charge for delivery and returns rather than hiding it in the price of our products.
We work hard to find the best delivery service for every product we sell, and select a service based on the weight, size and fragility of each item.
All delivery charges apply per order, and not per item; you will only pay for the largest item/service in your order. To reduce emissions and negative environmental impacts, if you’ve ordered furniture items with standard delivery items we will process and despatch everything together. This means that everything will be delivered at once using our specialist courier at a time to suit you, usually within 5-10 working days.
We deliver within mainland UK and also to Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Isle of Wight, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, Scottish Islands, and Isle of Scilly. If you live abroad we’re happy to assist in providing relevant details for arranging a courier to collect from our warehouse. Parcel weight and dimensions may be required when you are sourcing a quote from third party couriers, please contact our customer services team by email here or call +44(0)1225 418 200.
