Working as an antiques dealer for over 50 years, Charles has built an extensive knowledge of antique lighting and developed an eye for interesting and significant pieces. In 1992 following a conversation with renowned designer David Easton, Charles agreed to replicate one of his lanterns, leading to the design and manufacture side of the business. Since then the collection has evolved to over 400 designs and today Charles Edwards is considered one of the leading designers and manufacturers of 19th and 20th Century inspired English, French and American lighting. Charles Edwards is located at 582 & 575 King’s Road, London.
The permanent catalogue collection is a testament to the enduring passion of Charles. Owning and overseeing virtually every aspect of the business Charles has been able to create a consistent style and quality in the collection which does not concede to trends or whims. The catalogue collection is recognisable as work originating from a single mind, making it virtually impossible to imitate. The collection embraces the subtle and achieves a permanent style, characteristic of the English Country House look.
The antique selection, along with the door furniture and alabaster dish lights, are handled by the sister company Charles Edwards Across-the-Road, located at 19a Rumbold Road. For more information please visit the website www.charlesedwards-acrosstheroad.com.
Charles Edwards distinctive style is regularly featured in notable publications including Architectural Digest, Veranda, World of Interiors, and House & Garden. The custom size and bespoke services offered by the inhouse design studio continues to adapt and expand the collection.
