Miles and Edwards were renowned cabinet makers who produced fine English furniture from 134 Oxford St London. They were later taken over by C Hindley and Sons in 1844. Henry Miles and John Edwards were working together between 1822 until 1844 where they made fine furniture for important customers including the Empress of Russia and the British Ambassador in Paris.


In 1844 Miles and Edwards were taken over by Charles Hindley and Sons. Their high-quality cabinet makers flourished, earning them a Royal Appointment, and a part in the Great Exhibition. Both companies are listed in the Dictionary of English Furniture Makers 1660-1840 by the Furniture History Society. Over the years they produced some outstanding pieces of antique furniture.
