Case Furniture

Case Furniture was founded by Paul Newman in 2006. The company produces high-quality furniture by leading designers at an accessible price, supplying the international market as well as several large UK retailers.

Robin Day had been working on the idea of an armchair based on the cubic form for many years before Case finally put it into production in 2006 as the West Street Chair.

In September 2014 Case launched an authentic new production of Robin Day's 675 Chair (1953). An an early example was sourced as the template for development work carried out in consultation with the Foundation. The Robin Day 675 Chair is available in a choice of oak or walnut with black or chrome frame from UK and international design retailers or directly from Case. In March 2015 it was awarded a Design Guild Mark by the Furniture Makers' Company.

Case celebrated Robin Day's centenary with Robin Day: Redefining British Design, a retrospective exhibition of historic Robin Day pieces on loan from private collectors, held at the new Wandsworth showroom during London Design Festival 2015.

In 2019 Case organised A Day to Remember charity project. Fifteen leading textile designers were invited to customise the Robin Day 675 Chair with their own upholstery fabrics. The one-off pieces were auctioned online and all proceeds donated to the Foundation to support our educational work. This project heralded the launch of new wool-mix fabric and cream leather standard options for the 675 Chair.
