A Younger Ltd were a leading British furniture manufacturer in the 1950s and 1960s. They produced high quality, well made furniture, made in low volume, aimed at the top end of the market, selling through independent retailers as well as though Heals. They were amongst the first British furniture companies to adopt the Danish modern style in the 1950s and the first to abandon it, in search of a new style in the late 1960s.
Younger’s first contemporary design, teak, dining suite was the Moselle range, released in 1955. Two years later, they introduced the Volany range of teak furniture, which was kept in production for the next ten years. The award winning Fonseca collection, another inspired by Danish modern design, was release in 1959 and was produced through the early and middle part of the 1960s.
Younger’s approach to furniture making echoed the Danish modern movement in more than aesthetics; like their Scandinavian counterparts, they also emphasised the importance of quality materials and excellent craftsmanship.
Their 1964 catalogue states:
‘Although essentially modern in design Younger Furniture is based on the sound principles of traditional furniture. The natural finish of the carefully chosen woods, the many years of craftsmanship and the design of Younger Furniture has brought the Company six awards given by The Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers for excellence of craftsmanship and for original and creative design’.
Towards the end of the 1960s, in reaction to a market flooded with teak, modern furniture, Younger’s made the conscious decision to move away from Danish inspired furniture, choosing instead to develop a new direction for the company. This resulted in Younger’s producing ranges inspired by traditional Spanish style furniture and made in darker woods, the most popular of these being the Toledo range, released in 1972.
