Owned by Will Fisher, Jamb Ltd is driving the trend for English Country House aesthetic.
Jamb has built a reputation amongst architects and designers for dealing in only the finest quality furnishings. Specialising mainly in antiques, lighting, they posses the country’s largest collection of antique chimneypieces, with over 100 from the 17th to 19th century. Careful of maintaining their company’s ethos of English country house aesthetic, all products in their reproduction furniture range are modelled on items they have actually owned.
Founders Will Fisher and his wife Charlotte arrived in their Pimlico showroom after a much celebrated auction of their personal collection at Christie’s in 2012. Necessary in order to move premises, the sale contained many items that garnered intense bidding, with one taxidermy Chihuahua achieving more than forty times its estimate. The day was a great success with the overall lot achieving £3.9 million against a pre-sale estimate of £2.5 million.
For a serious collector like Will, whose lots were composed of rarified English country house items, this auction granted him the rare opportunity to start from scratch. It also raised an interesting question concerning market trends. With Jamb’s ethos centred around heritage and integrity, it shares many parallels with the market’s current ‘industrial’ focus.
Currently working on a private residential project in Hanbury Street, it will be interesting to see how the market responds to Will’s adept eye for detail. This could prove to be a showcase to a new aesthetic direction.
