Who we are

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.
