Argington Logo

Argington is the brainchild of Jenny Argie, a fine artist and Andrew Thornton, an architect and mathematician. Married in 1999, they combined their disciplines in 2002 when inspired by the birth of their first child and formed Argington in 2003, a line of modern children's furniture.

Argington's motivation and passion is family. They begin with their three children, who are the inspiration for each piece and end in the studio where loose sketches start Jenny and Andrew's creative process. Each piece was born out of necessity - a question asked and ultimately, a problem solved.

Argington's designs answer questions that commonly arise in aesthetically sensitive households: How do we build a bunk bed that we can live with? How do we make a high chair that is beautiful and won't disrupt the character of our dining room? Ultimately, their furniture is built with longevity, sustainability and innovation in mind and is strong enough to serve successive waves of toddlers as they grow through their many phases of development.


Mindful that we can no longer act in a way that puts our planet at risk, the philosophy at Argington is to make furniture and bedding conscientiously and to minimize its environmental impact.
