WHERE WE’VE COME FROM
We are a third-generation, British family business with a history that goes back forty five years. Founded by the late Cedric Collier in May 1977 who practised casting as a hobby after an initial interest in woodwork, he began by producing handles and brass mounts for the antique trade.
From humble beginnings in a shed in the back garden of Founder, Cedric Collier, the company grew rapidly in size and reputation. Within a few years Cedric could no longer work on his own, and it was then that son, Geoff, joined the team to work alongside his father. By the nineties, the pair had made significant strides forward in the growth of the business and decided to make the move to a new barn location in Hooe with nearly 30 employees. In 2005 under the direction of son Geoff Collier, whose knowledge and skills were attracting the attention of world class designers and architects, Collier Webb moved its Foundry to its current location on the South Coast of England.
With the luxury market now alert to the unmatched skills of Collier Webb in lighting and furniture making, we cemented our position with a London presence. In 2011, with business partner Andrew Webb, a Sotheby’s trained and renowned interior designer, Geoff opened the Collier Webb Gallery, on London’s Fulham Road, later moving to our current site on Pimlico Road.
WHERE WE’RE GOING
In July 2018 we unveiled a new-look Collier Webb, with the relaunch of our showroom in the heart of London’s luxury design district. Carefully designed to be the perfect place to meet, talk and collaborate on all things interiors, our showroom showcases the very best of Collier Webb.
In September 2019 we opened our second London showroom, this time at Europe’s largest design centre, the Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour.
While our products and processes are continually evolving and are being appreciated in many different locations around the globe, our values remain the same.
The Collier family heritage continues, with Geoff and the team supported today by his daughter, Danielle Collier. And, as it has been for the last forty five years, every piece that leaves our Foundry displays a unique handcrafted appeal and wears a promise of quality that is pure Collier Webb.
