Colourful Cabinets

Launched at London Design Week as part of Tent, I saw this piece from Yorkshire-based designer Anthony Hartley. Using oak, he creates these colourful cabinets by hand laminating each ply drawer, spraying and lacquering. The bright range of colours cry out to be touched, with their smooth wave like texture.

Hole in the Floor

Hole in the Floor is a serious of ingenious shelving units for a private commission in 2010. From the design studio Raw Edges, these units are based on the idea of things ending unexpectedly. The resemble vertical drawers that are sliced at the bottom. Not quite sure how they get those books so far down, but it’s an interesting concept, making you do a double take. Simple and thought provoking.

Citti Modular Storage

Really like the way this really is customisable. Many products and furniture boast this feature, without actually satisfying the means. This range by Zweed in Sweeden is a beautiful yet simple design. Width and height can be adjusted by changing the boxes around. Each piece is made to your order, and the manufacturers can paint it to any colour choice. Doors and drawers are also available as an option should you wish to hide the things you store. Boxes are made from painted/lacquered MDF and the legs are lacquered Birch.

Lille Round Table

Love curves on furniture and I think the Lille collection from Willis and Gambier do it so well. In particular the ‘Round Lamp Table’ with its subtly edged drawers and Cherry/Alder veneer colour.

Refurbished Credenza

I love finding stories about old furniture that have been restored, and this refurbished credenza is a classic case. Paint chipped and a few dents made this piece unloved, but with the hard work and determination of a man named Ryan Thompson it has been turned into a beautiful, useful object.
