The History of Nathan:
Barnet Nathan was a furniture maker of Russian origin and began to manufacture hand-crafted pieces of furniture from his work shop in Hackney Road East London in 1916 and founded B & I Nathan with his brothers. During the first and second world war the company supplemented their high-quality furniture-making business with making munition boxes and tent pegs for the war effort.
By the 1950’s, Nathan was specialising in dining room furniture and creating a brand names. Their dining-room suite the ‘Compton’ was chosen to represent the best British design at a major exhibition in New York in 1954.
The company radically embraced Scandinavian design in the 1960’s and used innovative designs using veneers, primarily in teak. A cohesive look in the home was Nathan’s ideal aesthetic, one which carried through from living room to dining room.
