Comments Off on Mid Century Modern Inspiration

Mid Century Modern design, be it furniture, graphic design or architecture, has always been a favourite and a fascination of ours.  A truly international movement and a sign of it’s time.  The use and/or incorporation of innovative materials, construction and manufacturing techniques and colour were then and remain now inspirational.

We use traditional methods of craftsmanship to produce our mid century modern inspired plywood range of lamp bases, made from Birch plywood which is turned and finished with a natural wax; the understated beauty of this layered material is revealed and it is beautiful.

We currently have four table lamp designs which we produce in plywood;  Tower Table Lamp, Vase Table Lamp, Column Table Lamp and the Doric Table Lamp and one stunning standard lamp, the Tower Standard Lamp.

There is a new table lamp design in the making too, so please do keep checking our website for updates or follow us on twitter, facebook and pinterest to keep informed of our new products and events!

Tidy, Tidy!



Comments Off on Tidy, Tidy!

It’s been a busy start to the year and we are not sure where the time has gone as we find ourselves mid way through February already,  we’ve been concentrating on updating the new website, improving our presence on our chosen social media platforms and meeting new people.

We have had some really fabulous new product photography of some of our new products undertaken by Nick Smith Photography, new postcards designed by Northbank Design  to be printed by our friends at Ripe Digital – a huge ‘thank you’ to all these lovely people without whom our presentation would not be as wonderful as it is!  We love working with our friends  and cannot recommend them highly enough whilst keeping our business truly local.

In preparation for the traditional spring clean as Spring rapidly approaches, and we’re sure that none of us will be sad to see the back of the dreadful wind, rain and awful flooding that has impacted on so many locally in Somerset and further afield, our thoughts have turned to practical interior solutions for hallways, guest rooms, boot rooms, utility rooms and the like where we all need a bit of order and which often get neglected.  We have a new towel rail in the making, pegboards with shelf (just the place for something gorgeous), pegboards in different sizes for those hats, coats and scarves, key racks for the plethora of keys we all own, roll holders. decorative mirrors and boot racks.

One of our favourite social media platforms is Pinterest (,  we  love all things Scandinavian and have been busy pinning, the end result being , you will see, a bit of a Scandinavian influence in our colour choices; Emperors Silk, Barcelona Orange,  Greek Blue and Antibes Green feature with a dark wax finish.

We hope that you enjoy the results, please do share our blog with your friends and family and we hope to hear from you soon!
