Case Furniture

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

In 2006 Case collaborated with Robin Day to put his long-considered design for an armchair based on the cubic form into production as the West Street Chair.

In September 2014 Case launched an authentic new production of Robin Day's 675 Chair (1953). An early example was sourced as the template for development work carried out in consultation with the Foundation. The 675 Chair was awarded a Design Guild Mark by the Furniture Makers' Company in 2015.

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. 

Case has worked closely with us to develop the long-awaited reissue of Robin Day's Forum Armchair and Sofa (1964), working from original design drawings and an example of the original production. Attention to detail has included recreating the seat angle, slender comb joints and full width timber plank casing, while incorporating modern materials such as Dacron-wrapped foam cushions, solid walnut or oak to replace the tropical hardwood veneers used in the 1960s, and a metal-reinforced frame for strength and longevity. Case's authentic reissue of the Robin Day Forum design launched at Clerkenwell Design Festival in May 2023.
