Younger was a leading light in high end British contemporary furniture and design.
Younger made top end furniture for discerning customers during the 1950s, 60s and 70s. Their products were made in low volume, crafted to the highest standard and always on the cutting edge of design.
Under the direction of talented design director John Herbert, Younger was a pioneer of contemporary style. The firm was one of the first to embrace the organic Scandinavian style in the late 1950s.
By the late 1960s Herbert had tired of the Scandinavian style and was keen to forge a new direction in contemporary design. Herbert found new inspiration in traditional Spanish design and well crafted Georgian furniture. This new design direction paved the way for a new style that would define the coming decade.
Although the Younger style was always leading the way in contemporary design it remained an expensive and exclusive product, loved by many but owned by a lucky few.
