Libra was the result of an epic journey across the globe to India. Joe and Christine McLaughlin left the UK in 1969 on a three year journey which would take them via Portugal to Afghanistan, Pakistan and India, ending in South Africa in 1971. They collected antiques and artifacts along their journey which they sent home. Upon returning to the UK they began selling their wares to independent retailers. Libra was born.
Four decades on, our family owned business designs and wholesales one of Europe’s leading collections of furniture, lighting and accessories. We create signature themes, using products designed in England and sourced around the globe. Our mission is to inspire through instinct, passion and design.
We aim to bring a generous sense of excitement and uniqueness to collections with an equal portion of quality and research behind them and are proud to have served the contract interiors market and retailers since 1972.
