Maple & Co was established by John Maple and continued by his son John Blundell. The company was most prolific in the late Victorian and Edwardian era, specialising in fine quality furniture, designed and produced in their own workshops. By the 1880s they were the largest furniture store in the world, exported their fine furniture to every continent. Maples manufactured their luxury furniture entirely in-house, at a huge modern complex in Tottenham Court Road. A timber importer and furniture exporter, they landed prestigious contracts furnishing fine houses, hotels, embassies etc. Among them Tsar Nicholas’s Winter Palace and the Hofburg Imperial Palace in Vienna. Never compromising on quality, Maples produced a huge catalogue of fine furniture, covering every avenue of interior design.
