Race Furniture recent interiors and lifestyle photo shoot on location in our AHM location house in Harpenden.
Race Furniture is proud to still manufacture the iconic mid- twentieth century designs of its founder Ernest Race.
Race’s first chair, the BA3, was exhibited in the 1946 Victoria & Albert Museum exhibition ‘Britain Can Make It’. At a time of limited resources, the BA3 manufacturing process was revolutionary and used salvaged materials, including recast aluminium from redundant aircraft and upholstery from recycled RAF lightweight cotton duck fabric. Today, the BA3 is exhibited at the V&A as an example of iconic British design.
Race was awarded many accolades and his furniture could be found everywhere from the suburban home to the most lavish ocean liner. In 1951 Race’s acclaimed Antelope & Roebuck became the seating for the Festival of Britain and took their place in British design history.

The living accommodation is bathed in natural light, thanks to the floor to ceiling, and wall to wall glass. Concrete and timber detailing.
