ROCKMAN & ROCKMAN Epicentre of the British Furniture Industry
ROCKMAN & ROCKMAN is based close to the spiritual heart of the aged East London furniture profession around Shoreditch, epicentre of the British furnishings sector from mid-19th to mid-20th Century. The majority of our local metropolitan landscape is mainly shaped by Victorian and Edwardian structures that were constructed particularly to house their workshops, factories, display rooms, storehouses and wood lawns.When we arrived right here over Two Decade ago many of the regional production and retail furniture trade had actually gone but there were still numerous fascinating aged stores that stocked countless unusual fittings and furnishing equipment. Since then regretfully, they have actually all gone and the abundant spectrum of items available has actually vanished with them - the last being Daniel Lewis & Sons carraige fittings on Hackney road, killed off by the red course parking after over 200 years trading in the exact same structure.At ROCKMAN & ROCKMAN we have a massive store of old brochures and reference from the 20th Century furnishings industry, the majority of specific to the Shoreditch area. These catalogues consist of an interesting goldmine of styles from a shed time.
