Jonathan Charles thinks in a past-perfect tense, one also pitch perfect for today. The design team thoughtfully updates scale, proportion and functionality to make traditional styling beautifully relevant for our times. Interestingly, sometimes an historic detail – an anthacus leaf relief, the slope of a cabriole leg, the fretwork on an antique brooch – is an exhilarating point of inspiration for something bold and entirely new.
At Jonathan Charles, there’s no disconnect between inspiration and execution. Uncommon craftsmanship – marquetry, gold-leafing, hand carving, hand-rubbed finishes – is the standard. In its own brass foundry, Jonathan Charles even fires, hammers and bends hot metal to its will, creating unique hinges, pulls, locks and other decorative details.
Jonathan Charles design, style and craftsmanship all beg for an up-close and personal inspection and experience. The showroom is located within the stunning Markor building with an entrance on E. MLK Jr, Drive.
