The Addison Ross Limited of today stands for a quality of design and a sophisticated use of colour that makes this UK - based, family-owned company a respected provider of picture frames and clocks to luxury accounts around the world.
But this world-wide presence had its humble beginnings in the rugged Scottish Borders, where Co-founder David Addison Ross was raised. From its small beginnings, in 1978, as an art gallery featuring sporting art, the company quickly expanded its focus, and opened a second gallery in the heart of London's Belgravia in 1981. This gallery provided handmade frames to many of London's West End galleries, and soon a much needed 10,000 sq. ft. factory and warehouse was added in the beautiful Cheviot Hills of Northumberland, in the Scottish border.
In 1982, the Belgravia gallery began supplying original artwork to many of the banking institutions and hotels of London. During this phase, Addison Ross was instrumental in launching the careers of many up-and-coming artists. The patronage of the Queen, the late Princess Margaret, and other members of the royal family began in the 1980's, and continues to the present.
The best was yet to come! In the early 1990's, David Ross met and married the lovely young Australian Sarah Major, and together they launched what is now the public face of Addison Ross Limited, their original signature Addison Ross photo frames.
Quality, design, elegance and innovation are at the heart of every collection that David and Sarah produce. Their bi-annual introductions are launched at important trade shows in Paris, New York and the UK, and are eagerly awaited by their devoted following of luxury retail shops, designers, and decorators.
In mid-2016, Addison Ross will be adding a Home Fragrance category. Two years in development, the collection was curated with great detail by Sarah Ross, in collaboration with the UK's leading parfumiers. The collection will feature 10 unique fragrances for candles and diffusers. The sophisticated Addison Ross Fragrances for the Home will be a stunning complement to the existing Addison Ross lifestyle.
The Addison Ross family - David and Sarah, their talented offspring Harry and Isabella, and Boris the Dog, are proud to present the Addison Ross product range, a compilation of the outstanding collections of Addison Ross.
