    Waring & Gillow
    is a noted firm ofEnglish furnituremanufacturers formed in 1897 by the merger ofGillowofLancasterand Waring ofLiverpool.
     
    The firm of Gillow's of Lancaster can be traced back to the luxury furniture and furnishings firm founded by Robert Gillow (1704–72) in 1730. Robert Gillow served an apprenticeship as a joiner. During the 1730s he began to exploit the lucrativeWest Indiestrade exportingmahoganyfurniture and importingrumandsugar. Following his death in 1772, the business was continued by his two sons, Richard (1734–1811) and Robert (1745–93). In 1764 a London branch of Gillow's was established at 176 Oxford Road, nowOxford Street, by Thomas Gillow and William Taylor. The firm rapidly established a reputation for supplying high-quality furniture to the richest families in the country.
     
    During the final years of the 19th century the company ran into financial difficulty and from 1897 began a loose financial arrangement with Waring of Liverpool, an arrangement legally ratified by the establishment of Waring & Gillow in 1903. Waring's of Liverpool was founded by John Waring, who arrived in the city fromBelfastin 1835 and established awholesalecabinet making business. He was succeeded by his son Samuel James Waring who rapidly expanded the business during the 1880s, furnishing hotels and public buildings throughout Europe. He also founded Waring-White Building Company which built theLiverpool Corn Exchange,Selfridge'sdepartment store and theRitz Hotel. Samuel James's son and namesakeSamuel James Waring(1860-1940) continued the family business and was elevated to the peerage as Baron Waring in 1922.
     
    Gillow's had established a reputation for the outfitting ofluxury yachtsandliners, including the royal yachtVictoria and Albert, linersLusitania,HeliopolisandCairo,Queen Mary(1936) andQueen Elizabeth(1940) for Cunard. During theFirst World Warthe Lancaster factory was turned over to war production, making ammunition chests for theNavyand propellers forDe Havilland DH9aircraft. They also established a large tent-manufacturing facility of 8,000 workers during WW1 on the now closed formerexhibition site at White City (the former Machinery Hall). They also madegas masks and trench coversfrom this site.During this time it was also at the White City site that theWorkers Unionfirst got recognition after a four-day strike mainly by women. The company also manufactured ammunition belts for use with machine guns, nosebags for horses and protective clothing for use during gas attacks.
     
    DuringWorld War IIthe factory produced parts for gliders and theMosquitoaircraft, whilekit-bags,tentsand camouflage nets were made by theupholsterydepartment.
     
    However, the business of the firm began to decline and the Lancaster workshops closed on 31 March 1962. In 1980 Waring and Gillow joined with the cabinet-making firm Maple & Co, to become Maple, Waring and Gillow, subsequently part of Allied Maples Group Ltd, which includesAllied Carpets.
     

    Satinwoodis a hard and durable wood with asatinlikesheen, much used in cabinetmaking, especially inmarquetry. It comes from two tropical trees of the familyRutaceae(ruefamily). East Indian or Ceylon satinwood is the yellowish or dark-brown heartwood ofChloroxylonswietenia.
     
    The lustrous, fine-grained, usually figured wood is used for furniture, cabinetwork, veneers, and backs of brushes. West Indian satinwood, sometimes calledyellowwood, is considered superior. It is the golden yellow, lustrous, even-grained wood found in the Florida Keys and the West Indies.
     
    It has long been valued for furniture. It is also used for musical instruments, veneers, and other purposes. Satinwood is classified in the divisionMagnoliophyta, classMagnoliopsida, orderSapindales, familyRutaceae.
