Case Furniture was established in London in 2006 by Paul Newman, a furniture designer who made products for Heals and Liberty of London.
In the late 1980s Paul Newman exhibited at Milan Furniture fair (Salon di Mobile) where he met Australian retailer Aero who produced his range. In partnership they launched a UK franchise of Aero in Westbourne Grove and later on Chelsea’s Kings Road.
Aero was sold in 1999 and it was from here that Paul set up Case Furniture with a clear vision: to create quality, authored products that are accessible to the mass market using modern manufacturing techniques.
If you want to buy British cutting-edge design that’s made to last a few of our favourite pieces of Case Furniture are:
Case Dulwich table
The Case Dulwich Extendable Table is a firm favourite with customers. Designed by longtime collaborator of Case, Matthew Hilton, the table has smooth lines, curves and a very functional aesthetic. It features mitred joints, visible through-tenons in the legs and proportions that show its quality. The Case Dulwich table also comes as an Extendable Round Table in an Oak or Walnut finish.
Case Cross table
The Cross Fixed Table by Matthew Hilton has all the features of the iconic and multi-award winning (Design Guild Mark 2008, Elle Decoration Best Furniture 2006, Homes & Gardens Classic Design Award 2007) Cross Extending Table without extensions. Featuring Matthew Hilton’s signature minimal aesthetic with the base keeping simple lines to allow plenty of leg room.
The Case Cross Round Tableis a very expressive piece of furniture that will make a statement whatever the space. The solid wood with chamfered edge detail makes it simple and lightweight and the splayed legs create a comfortable experience with plenty of leg room, like the rest of the tables in the Cross collection.
Case 675 chair by Robin Day
Designed by award-winning Robin Day in 1952, the Case 675 Chair is a classic piece of British modern design history. Awarded the Design Guild Mark award, the chair is known for its curved veneered plywood back. In 2014 Case worked alongside the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation to source an original version and develop a new model that was authentic to the original.
“Case have been willing to go the extra mile to develop a product which is very close to my father’s actual 1952 design. The result is startlingly fresh and authoritative; one glance is enough to convince that this is the real Robin Day 675 design, vigorous, poised and finely proportioned. Like all his chairs, it is also very comfortable.” - Paula Day, daughter of Robin & Lucienne Day.
Case Pala dressing table
Designed by sibling partnership Sarah & Henrik Böttger, who design for Case, Normann Copenhagen, Ligne Roset and more. The Case Pala Dressing Table feels pure and functional, with two compartments, a drawer and storage and a detachable mirror. It’s a great choice for smaller spaces and looks elegant and minimal at the same time.
Designed by Japanese-born Shin Azumi, the Covet Desk is simple, practical and comes in an oak or walnut finish. The surface is glass, creating a light and aesthetically pleasing design, ideal for the home office.
