For more than seventy-five years the name of C. John has been synonymous with the best woven works of art. C. John carpets, rugs, tapestries and textiles grace a myriad of homes from the simplest apartments to the grandest houses of the world.
Our founder, C. John, opened his first showroom in Henley-on-Thames in 1936. two years later he obtained larger premises in High Street, Oxford. Then in 1947 the Mayfair showrooms were established at 70 South Audley Street.
In 1966 he received the accolade of being appointed as supplier of carpets to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the first in his field to receive the Royal Warrant. The C. John tradition continues under my personal directorship.
We offer an expert restoration and cleaning service which is carried out by our own craftsmen, who combine their great skill with the finest materials available.
Our gallery offers a small example of our personally selected range of items. I hope to have the pleasure of personally welcoming you to our showrooms where you may view the items currently available. I am sure you will enjoy seeing these beautiful artefacts and discussing their origins.
If you are looking for something particular or to grace a special room then we can send a selection of images to you for initial consideration. Please contact us to discuss how we may be of assistance by telephone or email.
We strive to be environmentally friendly in many ways including using appropriate recyclable underlays and where possible recycled wool for restorations. Antique carpets,rugs,tapestries and textiles by reason of their age, have no effect on the environment.
