Before founding Jentique, Geoffrey Jenkins was well known as a toymaker. In 1932, he designed a water driven hydraulic toothbrush called the 'Kavor'. It was incredibly expensive and required a complicated setup so was unfortunately destined for failure. While the "Kavor" didn't find a market, Jenkins did succeed with a well manufactured gramophone.

It was the success of the gramophone that led Jenkins to focus on furniture making under the name Jentique Furniture. Unfortunately it appears that Jenkins lost control of the company in 1936 to his business partner Bernard Smart (better known as the owner of Metamec clocks).

By the late 1950s and 60s Jentique had become a prominent nationwide British furniture brand, specialising in modern, contemporary furniture. It capitalised on the trend toward clean Danish lines offering a range of refined Dining furniture including sideboards.

Today, Jentique furniture from the mid century era has become prized for its elegant proportions, attractive design and excellent build quality.
