About Us

naughtone is a British furniture design and manufacturing company based in Yorkshire, UK. Founded in 2005 by design graduates, the business grew rapidly and in 2009 saw the launch of one of naughtone’s most significant products; the Hush chair.

In 2012, naughtone founded our own upholstery factory allowing us to play to our strengths and in 2013, ventured into the US market with instantaneous success.

In 2016, naughtone entered into a strategic partnership with Herman Miller with a view to accelerating our growth in global markets. We manufacture at home and increasingly internationally, to support our approach to sensible lead times, pricing and environmental factors. In October 2019 Herman Miller acquired shares in naughtone taking ownership to 100%. naughtone remains an independent brand within the impressive Herman Miller Group of companies.

The naughtone product range is 100% unique to naughtone, having been designed in house or specifically commissioned. The range consists of seating, table and storage products and attempts to cater for most commercial furniture demands away from the desk and task chair. Our products are pared down aesthetically and have multiple finish options to make them broadly appealing.

naughtone is a modern company with an inherent focus on social and environmental impacts. Our excellent environmental practices are recognised by multiple industry accreditations and we are proud to have Health Product Declarations (HPDs) for a range of our products. Our furniture is used by some of the most influential brands in commerce and culture and our passionate team believes there is no better proof of the relevance and application of the product range.

We have our own showrooms in the UK and North America and our products can be seen in furniture dealer showrooms all over the world.
