Julian Joseph is an online interiors boutique and we design, curate, love and live inspiring furniture.
It all started between four friends who had a penchant for interiors and in particular the humble chair.
We wanted to design jaw-on-the-floor statement chairs that turn heads and also spark a little interior envy!
Julian Joseph is made up of Hannah and Luke Silver and Louise and Mike Cronin. In 2012 Hannah and Luke moved from Texas to Shanghai and coincidentally Louise and Mike left Blighty also bound for the bright lights of Shanghai. Thanks to fate and good fortune three of us enrolled at the same Mandarin school and it was instant friendship.
Hannah and Louise soon discovered a mutual love for interiors. It became clear that between the four of us our experience spanned interior design, marketing, manufacturing and finance.
After much daydreaming of owning a business, we took the plunge and left bustling Shanghai behind and headed to rural South China, known for furniture production. We immersed ourselves in the world of manufacturing and after six swelteringly humid months returned home.
Hannah and Luke currently manage the U.S. side of the business based in Texas whilst Louise and Mike oversee operations in the U.K. and Europe.
When we began our journey we set out to offer attainable luxury and created a collection that includes traditional designs with modern touches, cute as a button velvet cocktail chairs, a contemporary linen range and chic footstools. Our designs stand out in avant-garde interiors as well as accentuating calmer spaces.
Our Ava cocktail was also used at the FOX Golden Globes after party at the Beverly Hill’s Hilton Hotel. We’re pretty smiley about this!
And you may have even seen our chairs at various restaurants and hotels up and down the country…like we said, our chairs get out and about!
And voila. That’s Julian Joseph.
