G Plan Design Heritage
THE G PLAN STORY
The furniture that rebuilt Britain.
We proudly trace our roots back to 1898, when Ebenezer Gomme began handcrafting beautiful furniture in his workshop. In 1953, his grandson Donald launched the G Plan brand and with it a post-war furniture revolution, as he took the then radical step of selling sofas without matching chairs. Over the years G Plan has created some of the most enduring and iconic furniture of the 20th century, something that we still aim for with every piece we design today.
In 2012 we launched G Plan Vintage in collaboration with Hemingway Design – a stunning range of furniture inspired by our design heritage. It’s a collection that embraces the quality and craftsmanship of G Plan, along with Hemingway’s fresh and vibrant approach to vintage projects.
A benchmark for British design since 1953, G Plan has a consistent drive for design innovation and evolution. We blend beautifully balanced design with the perfect mix of style and function to deliver high quality furniture to British homes. Come home to Good design. Come home to G Plan.
Crafted, not made
Every G Plan sofa is handcrafted to order in the UK. Our highly skilled designers, craftsmen and women lovingly create every design from initial sketch through to finished product, ensuring every detail is perfect. Quality design isn’t something you look at. It’s something that you feel. It’s about understanding people and giving them things that make their lives better. That’s why we craft supremely comfortable, exceptionally hardwearing furniture that looks
It's all in the detail
G Plan has become a benchmark for classic British design. But what’s made it such an enduring favourite is the way that it’s crafted as much for living rooms as it is for showrooms. This is furniture that loves to be lived on.
We go to great lengths to source our fabrics and leathers from some of the finest mills and tanneries around the world. Beautifully stylish, but equally selected for quality and handle, you’ll notice our comfort commitment every time you sit on one of our sofas or chairs. And even though you can’t see inside your sofa, you can rest assured it is as lovingly finished as the outside with hardwood in all load bearing areas, quality springs and premium fillings. It is our policy to purchase timber from responsible sources, where reforestation is assured.
