‘Behind the Scenes ’ – On Location with Wood Bros

With just a few weeks to go before the latest additions to the Wood Bros accent chairs and compact sofas collection hit the stores, the Wood Bros marketing team are hard at work, creative juices flowing, producing the imagery that will go to make up the marketing materials for stockists and customers alike. The location for the shoot is a drafty old 18th century laundry in the back streets of Hackney in London.

A Brief History of Wood Bros

Our History The history of Wood Bros (Furniture) LTD stretches back to its foundation in 1924 by Mr H.W. Wood MBE (or ‘HW’ as he was known to all). A family company which, with it’s wide and varied past of innovation, design and hard work, diversified into many interesting niche areas. History of Cabinetmakers Coming from a long line of accomplished cabinetmakers, HW loved the strength and character of oak, the material that had built English power from its navy, buildings and homes since the 15th century. He chose oak timber, perfect for construction, to create the Old Charm collection of fine traditional furniture with its rich and decorative carvings and motifs.

Prestigious contracts of national importance...
