About Us

Jessica Pownall has been running a successful 20th century antiques and interior consultancy business since 2010. She has developed a keen eye for style, colour and eclectic taste. Jess’ love for mid century Italian and French upholstery has inspired her to set up Artisanna London. Through lovingly restoring old pieces in luxurious fabrics over the years, she has got to know and respect their sculpted forms and her made-to-order collection of chairs honour these beautiful and unique designs from the past. Jess remains passionate about antiques and continues to source exquisite 20th-century mirrors, lighting, occasional furniture and decorative pieces that are included in the Artisanna London collection.

Artisanna London sells made-to-order upholstered furniture inspired by mid-century Italian and French design. Each unique piece is handcrafted and upholstered in England by a team of exceptionally skilled artisans, using both traditional and modern methods. Our aim is to create beautifully sculpted and comfortable pieces that reflect the glamour of the 1940’s and 50’s and are timeless to suit any contemporary interior. We also have a curated collection of twentieth century antiques.
