FEATURED: THE TELEGRAPH'S INTERIOR DIRECTORY 2021

We’re delighted to start the year featured in The Telegraph’s A-to-Z interior directory, a definitive guide to creating a stylish home for 2021.

Having spent so much time in our homes this past year, we’re naturally looking to quality comforts and feel-good homewares. Our homes, have fast become our places of work, our sanctuaries and everything in between.

Proudly flying the flag for handcrafted furniture design, you’ll find us in a great line-up of fellow British designers and makers, set to inspire you and your home this year! We caught up with Jessica Slater from The Telegraph to chat slow design, and reflect on how lockdown has impacted the way we consider our spaces and purchases. 

“We have been forced to respect our homes and to re-evaluate how we use our homes. This has meant that people are spending money more carefully and more thoughtfully.”

Our studio continues a family legacy of British design and fine craftsmanship with a keen on sustainability. We take great care at every stage of production, from carefully selecting the best British timbers, to each piece lovingly handmade in our workshop intended to last for generations.

“We’re interested in ‘slow furniture’ on lots of different levels: so the slow accumulation of furniture that you like and that is functional, which is likely to make it stand the test of time; but also in our means of product development and manufacture, we take care in what we produce, why we produce it and how we produce it.”

A must-read for anyone planning an interiors project or with keen eye on emerging British designers.
