Jonathan Charles works with artisans who display a large range of skills and take pride in their work, which is evident in their beautifully-crafted antique replicas. They go far beyond just creating furniture that resembles English classics. Jonathan Charles employs age-old techniques, which breathe soul and lasting-quality into their products. Inspirations come from original antiques that Jonathan discovers in his travels. Sometimes, they reproduce them as accurately as possible, while at other times they take a detail that they like and design a completely new piece of furniture around that feature. Oftentimes, they will start the design process from scratch. They gather inspiration from a variety of sources – be it a classic wallpaper design, nature, classic antiques, a rare object, or jewelry.
