About Us

In 1978 Martin Taylor started his antiques company specialising in furniture from the eighteenth century to the 1930’s. His particular love was Victorian and Edwardian furniture. As time went by he found that more and more people bought his furniture for hotels, restaurants and pubs as centrepieces or bought sets of reclaimed chairs for dining. Since 2008 Taylor's Classics has brought together a unique collection of chairs, tables, stools and benches that represent the best in British furniture over the past 250 years from Chippendale to Arts and Crafts. Our new reproduction furniture has been manufactured especially for the contract and hospitality markets.

Our 40,000 square foot warehouse, showrooms, factory and offices in Stafford include new equipment allowing us to produce tables, chairs, stools and benches from the timber plank to the finished items of furniture. So our wood machining, spray and French polishing facilities together with our upholstery department ensures that we are fully in control of quality and scheduling. Have a look at our Bespoke Manufacturing page to see what goes on in the workshop.

Our extensive storage space has allowed us to increase our stockholding of antique and reclaimed furniture so if you visit us you will discover an Aladdin’s Cave of unique and interesting furniture and furnishings. You will always find a warm welcome at Taylor's Classics.
