Howard and Sons
of Berners Street in London were the foremost upholstery maker of the nineteenth century, regarded in the same way as Gillows were for cabinet furniture. Howard and Sons were such an important company that they collaborated with Gillows on several important projects and may have even manufactured pieces of upholstered furniture for Gillows as well as other important makers such as Maple and Co.
