Balmain and Balmain have been making quality sofas and chairs since 1987 and Henrietta Gillespie now runs the bespoke furniture business, which was started by her parents, from her home in Wilton near Marlborough.
If you’ve ever felt daunted by the large furniture stores where they offer very little flexibility or help, then try settling into one of Henrietta’s own comfy sofas while she guides you through the possibilities.
You decide on the depth, the number of seats and the fabric. Choose from straight back, serpentine spring back, cushion back, inset scroll arms, capped-on -arms, bun-feet, kick-peat skirts, turned legs and many more options.
All the furniture is made in the UK at Balmain and Balmain’s own workshop. The result is top quality, bespoke furniture without the high street overheads.
The big difference with Balmain and Balmain” says Henrietta “ is that you view the possibilities in a home environment and have my undivided attention. There are plenty of examples on show to give you ideas, but nothing is fixed. Every piece we make is unique”.
