Matthew C. Business Owner

A very brief history...
My grandfather, Robert Keyes founded the antique furniture restoration business in the East End of London in the late 1930s and then went to war for 6 years, restarting where he left off on his return.  I took over the business after apprenticing with him in the early 1980s and set up a workshop in Islington, near our current site.  I met my wife and partner, Zoë Candlin, a textile designer in 1981 and it was always obvious that we would collaborate on a project such as this from early in our relationship.  We set up After Noah together and  first opened our doors on the 11th May 1990 in a little shop on Upper Street, Islington .
