Happy 150th Birthday to Parker Knoll

150 years in business is a rare achievement, but this year Parker Knoll is celebrating this impressive milestone, testament to the quality of their furniture.


Their sofas and chairs are still as hugely popular today as they were in 1868. Many of us recall our granny having a Parker Knoll chair and therefore often associate the brand with the older generation but this is definitely not the case today, their designs are modern and luxurious and would grace any home. At Harris Furnishings, they are delighted to be the exclusive suppliers of Parker Knoll for Spain and the Balearics. We look at this iconic brand and their strong history in this article.


The history of Parker Knoll

Parker Knoll had humble beginnings in a small and simple workshop in London 150 years ago, and since then the brand has been renowned the world over for designing and developing the best handmade British chairs and sofas. Established in 1868 by Shoreditch born cabinet maker Frederick Parker, he used time-honoured techniques in building the finest furniture which he learnt from his father. He passed this pride in his work to subsequent generations ensuring quality, comfort and design remained the founding principles that can still be found at the heart of Parker Knoll today.

Treat Yourself to Some Parker Knoll Furniture

Given the current exchange rate from EUR to GBP, now is a fantastic time to purchase your Parker Knoll furniture, particularly if your savings are in euros. Although the drop in the pound is not great for those reliant on funds from the UK, this is counteracted by them benefiting from the exchange rate when they buy furniture from British manufacturers. In other words, if the GBP rate were to improve, imported products from the UK would cost our clients more. Take advantage of ‘Made in Britain’ items and you could be enjoying this Christmas in the lap of luxury on your Parker Knoll sofa.
