About Griffiths & Griffiths
Griffiths & Griffiths was founded in 1986 by Gladys Griffiths, later joined by her son Peter. The exquisite 2000m2 showroom located in Kramerville, Johannesburg (THE interiors and exterior design and décor destination of Johannesburg), is the ideal way to view the extensive range of solid Mahogany furniture – ranging from dining rooms, studies, bedrooms, occasional pieces through to lamps and accessories.
Griffiths & Griffiths are the premier supplier of solid mahogany English Replica furniture in South Africa. The deluxe imported range is sourced from the Norman Adams Collection of 18th century antiques, and optimises the very best of the Georgian and Regency periods. These are fine investment pieces, as quality replicas offer the perfect antique alternative for the corporate executive environment or the elegant home.
The solid mahogany furniture is hand-worked with traditional tools by master-craftsmen, replicating the exact proportions and carving details commissioned centuries ago. The techniques of antiquing, patina simulation and polishing, supervised by Gladys and Peter, make each piece of furniture virtually indistinguishable from the original.
With many years’ experience in the decorating industry, Gladys together with her expert inhouse team, is able to create the ideal style by combining the classic and the contemporary.
Old Chestnuts – undeniable sophistication – it was once said: “it’s the whole and not the detail that matters”. Gladys Griffiths begs to differ. The most important work we ever do, is within the walls of our own homes. The interior represents the universe for the private individual.
