High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Waring & Gillow is
a noted firm of English furniture manufacturers formed in 1897 by
the merger of Gillow of Lancaster and Waring of Liverpool. The firm
of Gillow's of Lancaster can be traced back to Robert Gillow
(1704-72) in 1730, having served an apprenticeship as a joiner.
During the 1730s he began to exploit the lucrative West Indies
trade exporting mahogany furniture and importing rum and sugar.
Following his death in 1772, the business was continued by his two
sons, Richard (1734-1811) and Robert (1745-93). In 1764 a London
branch of Gillow's was established at 176 Oxford Road, now Oxford
Street, by Thomas Gillow and William Taylor. The firm rapidly
established a reputation for supplying high quality furniture to
the richest families in the country.
