British Craftmanship

A story of creativity.

Alexander & James was founded by furniture designer Mark (Alexander) Smith and businessman and design aficionado David (James) Lee. Their aim? To create signature sofas and chairs rooted in British heritage that offer a combination of high-end designer style and luxurious comfort.
Mark and David work with a team of talented furniture designers and makers, hand sketching new designs that are both timelessly stylish and right on trend. With its modern take on traditional elements like scroll arms and Chesterfield- buttoning, Alexander & James consistently redefines classic British style.

The finest fabrics and leathers.

The sofas, armchairs and footstools in the Alexander & James collection feature only the finest fabric and leather upholstery. Carefully selected high-quality fabrics, including plain and pattered wools, velvets and linens, are available in an array of colours from subtle to bold. Premium leathers are sourced from around the world and offer a variety of grain and texture styles. Each exhibits its own characterful markings which means that your leather Alexander & James sofa or armchair is a one of a kind.
