More InformationBrights of Nettlebed is one of the longest established family run classic furniture specialist in the United Kingdom. The business is owned and run by Robert & Henry Stamp, whose family have a tradition in antiques and English furniture. Robert's uncle, F. Roy Stamp (collaborator on the book Queen Anne and Georgian Looking Glasses), ran the antique specialists, Biggs of Maidenhead (est 1866), whose extensive archives are now maintained by Brights. Many of the designs which Brights produce are influenced by this collection of detailed drawings and photographs.
Brights’ flagship showrooms are in the village of Nettlebed, in Oxfordshire – four miles North West of the historic riverside town of Henley on Thames. The first showroom, opened forty years ago, was the town’s bakery until the mid 20th c – the huge bread ovens still dominate what is now the ‘Oak Room’. Since taking on these first premises, Brights has grown to include the surrounding buildings – a butcher’s, a grocery store, and a very grand Georgian residence. Today, these are joined by beautiful gardens. Within the Showrooms, there are thirty two classically furnished room sets – the 12,000 square feet provides adequate space to display extensive selections of furniture, lighting, room accessories and mirrors embracing the history of English furniture.
