Our wholesale range includes furniture, lighting and home accessories exclusively designed by, or for, Authentics. For more than 25 years, we've built our reputation on the quality of our products and the service we provide to our customers, so we choose both the designers we collaborate with, and the UK and overseas trade partners we distribute through, with care.

We offer independent advice and consultancy to the corporate sector, using our design and manufacturing base, and are happy to produce bespoke products for special projects, events or promotions.
