Anbôise - New Luxury Interiors Brand
Handcrafted British Furniture, Contemporary Designs, Curated Art & Antiques
NEWS (29/07/2021): The new luxury interiors brand Anbôise offers evolving collections of Furniture, Lighting and Accessories curated by Creative Director, Annabelle Holland, founder of the award-winning eponymous design studio – with the assistance of an experienced team of Art and Antique experts.
Annabelle is known for her combinations of contemporary and classic furniture, which create a sense of evolution over time and provide unique, multi-layered designs with depth and interest.
“We wanted to create a brand which will help inspire others to create unique interiors that feel curated rather than just decorated.” Annabelle Holland, Creative Director of Anbôise.
The company name Anbôise (pronounced ohn-bwahz) is inspired by the founder’s ancestor, Charles II d’Amboise, known, amongst other things, for being Leonardo da Vinci’s patron. Just as Charles promoted the arts and design through da Vinci five centuries ago - Anbôise looks to bring together and promote the best in art, design and craftsmanship today.
A curated selection of art, antiques and rugs * are offered alongside a stunning selection of handcrafted furniture and accessories. All of the Anbôise upholstered furniture - including armchairs, sofas, benches and headboards - is handmade in the UK and designed by Annabelle Holland in partnership with master craftsmen. They have been designed as timeless pieces of furniture which will be passed down through the generations.
Annabelle has also designed the luxurious collection of Anbôise cushions. Handmade in the UK using only the very best fabrics, including intricate hand blocked prints, Italian velvets and Belgian linens. Complete with silk trims or contrast piping, they are a perfect example of the beautiful craftsmanship on offer at Anbôise.
A rich and varied collection of tableware, glassware and decorative accessories will provide unique and welcome accents to any home. Whilst the wonderful selection of contemporary lighting and furniture complements the antiques on offer beautifully.

* Further details on the Anbôise offering:
Anbôise Antiques - The Anbôise Antiques Team has over 50 years experience dealing antique English furniture and are members of BADA (The British Antique Dealers’ Association), the leading trade association for the fine art, design and antiques community, and CINOA (Confédération Internationale des Négociants en Œuvres d’Art), the principal international confederation of Art & Antique dealer associations. The team's criteria for buying stock has never changed - Good Design, Originality, Good Colour and Patination.
Anbôise Art - The Anbôise Art Team has over 15 years experience running art galleries. The team are constantly travelling to see artists in their own studios, immersing themselves in the way they work, getting to understand their background, how they paint and the paints they use.
Anbôise Rugs - With over 30 years’ experience, The Anbôise Rug Team are specialists in the Persian rug trade. The team travel frequently to source pieces they see as unique works of art, which often require years to hand-knot and complete.
Anbôise Fabrics - Anbôise collaborates with leading fabric houses to create all its upholstered furniture and soft furnishings, selecting only the finest fabrics with a focus on craftsmanship. Launch collaborations include:
Lewis & Wood - Since they were established over 25 years ago Lewis & Wood have had "a determination to use British talent and manufacturing, and to be adventurous and experimental. When most mainstream fabric and wallpaper companies bring out dozens of new designs every year, Lewis & Wood introduce a select half-dozen. In a world of too many fabrics and wallpapers, Lewis & Wood offers the edited version - high-quality, considered, and concise. Lewis & Wood designs have a sense of individuality, a quality that speaks of the carefully-crafted as opposed to the mass-produced." Ros Byam Shaw, author of English Eccentric
Pukka Print - Founded in 2013, Pukka Print's hand blocked designs merge Indian botanicals, flowers, and foliage with an English colour palette to create a very Anglo-Indian feel and look. The collections all combine an innate understanding of English decoration and style with a passion for genuine 16th and 17th century prints originating from India. The look is timeless and understated, the colours subtle and classic. The designs are inspired by Indian motifs and play with colour and scale. Block printing requires immense skill, experience, and patience. Often this traditional expertise has been passed from father to son through the generations. To create the patterns, each block is very carefully and slowly printed onto the cloth by hand whilst the registration (knowing how to line the block up) is all done by eye.
