Firefly House

About us

Firefly House was founded in 2003 by Jan Aitken and Russell Davis who share a love of design.

From humble beginnings we’ve grown into a well-regarded specialist in Mid-Century furniture and a feature at modernist design shows both here in the UK and overseas.

Jan Aitken

Jan went to Farnham Art College, and followed a career as a textile designer consulting globally for the likes of ICI. She has been an interior designer for 20 years, having worked for KA International and Graham & Green (London) before co-founding Firefly House.

Russell Davis

Russell started his career in the City until realising he far preferred the look of aluminium to trading it. As co-founder of Firefly House he is now able to marry his commercial experience with a passion for modernist design.
