About

WorkHouse is a contemporary British furniture brand

Workhouse is a British furniture brand. Our style is a combination of boutique with a contemporary edge. Our designs reflect modern living and the flexible working environment with an eclectic range of products spanning soft furnishing, lighting and tiles alongside desking, storage and partitioning.

WorkHouse products are manufactured in the UK using hands on craftsmanship as well as modern technology. Manufacturing locally enables us to offer a range of fabric, colours and finishes as well as bespoke designs.

WorkHouse cement tiles are the exception. These are hand-made in Tangiers by master craftspeople using traditional techniques to produce the highest quality encaustic cement tiles.

WorkHouse products are manufactured to stand the test of time. We make a conscious effort to responsibly source materials and support the British manufacturing industry.

Custhom
Designers

Custhom now works with clients on concepts for branding, retail spaces, restaurants and domestic projects.

Custhom have applied their signature Palladian pattern to develop tile designs Vanbrugh and Webb for the WorkHouse British tile collection.

Roy Pegram
Designer

Born in 1923,  the late Roy Pegram is one of the original tribe of Brit Pack artists pre-dating Damien Hurst by some 45 years.  A contemporary of Peter Blake but with a tonal style more akin to Bridget Riley, Pegram’s paintings are preoccupied with highly controlled movement, inspired by the tight lyricism and syncopation in swing jazz and the elevated beauty of Bauhaus’s form and function. Selected artworks by Roy Pegram have been adapted to fit the WorkHouse British tile collection.
