Byron & Byron create and supply a variety of hand-crafted and traditionally finished curtain poles and accessories and was created in 1984 to supply a demand of the rapidly growing interior design sector of 1980’s Britain.
The company was founded by a then, young Italian Orazio Gualtieri, his passion for traditional craftsmanship and design pushed Byron & Byron to stand out against the crowd. The decade of energy and opportunity in 1980’s London allowed the youthful entrepreneur to marry his knowledge of design and traditional wood finishing techniques to produce a small range of classically decorative curtain poles and accessories.
Our ideology of Byron & Byron has been fundamental from the start; to have control over the whole process of the design. From conception, to prototypes, to the final manufacturing of each component. The luxury of having an on-site workshop allowed Orazio to be experimental and creative with finishes, responding quickly to growing trends and fast paced changes in colour and design.
The ability to immediately tackle problems and develop innovative ideas over the years is unique to Byron & Byron. The cutting edge design of our wooden bay poles and decorative polmets are prime examples of this and we strive to lead the market with our attention to detail and continued focus on the design.
An innovative and unique collection inspired by the organic aging process of wood. Six finials are available in the collection in 8 natural finishes. For a rustic edge, we have designed Saltash, which is bound by rope for an earthy effect. Each piece is hand-crafted, finely finished by experienced craftsmen and produced using the finest timbers. All here in Britain.
A stunning collection of rustic wooden poles, in a palette of oak finishes. Inspired by English country cottages.

Historically know as ‘Cornice Boards’, these window treatments were first designed to frame the window, disguising fixtures. Our decorative pelmets have been created not only for function, but for style too.
Available in a range of styles and hand finished, this collection boasts both contemporary and classic designs.
Designed to get noticed a new breed of window treatments that are a cross between your typical curtain poles and pelmets. Available in larger sizes with an enhanced gliding system, they allow to hang heavy curtains.
One of the main challenges of contemporary homes is that little or no wall space is allowed between the top of the window and the ceiling. Where a limited amount of space has been afforded, a polmet can offer the perfect solution, allowing for a range of window treatments, both modern and traditional.

Over 30 years later and Byron & Byron are still producing curtain poles, finials and accessories. With growing demand, production has become increasingly sophisticated but the focus still has a high reliance on the skill and attention of a talented team of gilders and craftsmen. With successful designs now the product of experience and expertise, we have grown from a small Islington workshop to a production plant in North London. However, our core values remain unchanged, a passion for the product, a love of flamboyance and a determination to provide elegant and fitting solutions for both traditional and modern window treatments.
We are proud to be a British manufacturer and whilst timber is sourced from outside the U.K., the process of creating the product from concept to crafting the final piece is all done on home soil.
