The Christophe Edwards Gallery has the atmosphere of an artist's studio. The showroom displays an eclectic mix of carefully selected furniture, pictures, objects, sculpture and lighting. The collection is not period specific; instead Christophe observes two simple rules: to choose pieces of superb design that have both expert craftsmanship as well as a timeless quality that makes every piece versatile. The sophistication and diversity of the objects has made the Christophe Edwards Gallery a first stop for top interior designers and collectors from both the UK and the USA.
Christophe Edwards followed his cousin Ralph Edwards (curator of woodwork at the V & A and author of 'A Dictionary of English Furniture,' published in 1954 and still the definitive work on the subject) into the trade. He started dealing in the late 1970's and was one of a handful of dealers in London and New York credited with rediscovering 'Art Furniture' (furniture and objects designed by architects between 1850 and 1940.) From his shop in the Pimlico Road and exhibitions in New York, Christophe built up a loyal following of international interior designers and private collectors.
In 2007, Christophe joined the Core One Collective at The Gasworks, Fulham, SW6, so that they could benefit from the potential the new extended galleries could offer. Core One was a collective of ten dealers who over the last decade have been recognized as one of the best trade hubs in Europe.
In 2015, following the Core One site being taken over for redevelpment, Christophe relocated his Gallery to the Lorfords Antiques umbrella, at Babdown Airfiled near Tetbury, Gloucestershire.
