Furniture Design

Hollis Newton


With a small team of talented craftspeople, Hollis Newton re-imagines antique and vintage furniture, creating one-off bespoke pieces of furniture.

The company name “Hollis Newton” has a family history. “Hollis” is the name of the creative and wanderlustful maternal uncle of founder Roxanne Brathwaite. “Newton” belonged to the eccentric great uncle on her father’s side who, along with his wife Marge, owned an antique shop in their native Trinidad. In addition, each chair design carries the name of a family member. Roxanne works with her brother, Russell, and upholstery masters Berkley Peazer and Pamela Phillips, who have become like family.
