Benjamin Warner, Wager Charles Sillett and Charles Ramm signed an article of partnership on 20th October 1869. The following year the new company, Warner, Ramm and Sillett, began producing woven furniture silks. The succeeding company, Warner & Sons, would quickly go onto become a prestigious brand. This first study morning in our Warner & Sons Anniversary season will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the brand and explore their industrial and design history.
