Robert Strahan 1776-1969  

The furniture firm of Robert Strahan and Co was founded in 1776. Operating from premises in Dublin at 10-11 Chancery Lane, by 1815 it was so successful that two new workshops opened at 24-25 Henry Street and 5 Leinster Street in 1845. 

They displayed their work at Dublin's great industrial exhibition of 1853, where the best examples of Irish design and manufacture were on show. In 1870 the firm moved to Abbey Street and continued to trade under the well-established family name up until 1969.
