Design & production
When designing a piece of furniture I will make a selection of designs based on the size and style requested taking into account position and use as well as the surronding interior design setting. After designs are chosen, and tweaked where necessary, I will make 3D renderings and sometimes scale or full size mock ups.
When designs are finalized I can begin building the frame from hardwood, bearing in mind the style and finish of any show wood if the legs are to be integral to the frame for strength. The filling can be modern or traditional and will depend on the shape and level of comfort. I will make up the piece to calico for a last check before final fabric.
Fabric and finish
Fabric choice can be off the peg from a supplier, provided by the client or designed one off for the client's piece. I will make suggestions as part of the process and can source any style of fabric. I also work with a designer who creates beautiful artworks of all kinds and now designs fabric for one offs and small runs.
