Our team is made up of passionate British and European creative thinkers, confident in mixing cultural and multinational knowledge in crafting designs fit for purpose and spaces where people can find comfort away from home. Our design, our craft, our product is created with authenticity, comfort and overall quality enabling a fantastic range built for the contract environment. From the workspace to a hotel lounge, the university campus to a restaurant.

“Making places for everyone” is what we genuinely love creating through design led furniture.
