A modern-day design legend, Christopher Guy Harrison is an internationally renowned designer whose luxury furnishings brand Christopher Guy is known for its elegant fusion of contemporary mood and classic values. A few years after selling his first mirror frame at Harrods in London in 1994, Harrison established vast workshops in Indonesia. Within a decade, the Christopher Guy brand of luxury furnishings and decorative lifestyle accessories was a global sensation, with showrooms in more than 40 cities throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
