We're delighted to present our new collaboration with the talented textile designer Eleanor Pritchard. Eleanor designs and manufactures beautiful upholstery fabric using high quality yarns that are suitable for contract use and we've teamed up to create a new look for our solid oak Long Eaton Bench. Upholstered in Aerial fabric : Totley Orange and Rowridge Blue, the Long Eaton is a smart looking bench.
A sleek and striking look for winter... our Quayside Pendant Light and Burgess Compact Table are now available in Black.
New arrival... Our new spun aluminium pendant light, the Quayside, is a minimal take on the industrial pendant lights from a bygone era. We'll be launching the Quayside in four different colours (red, white, grey and yellow) at this year's Clerkenwell Design Week: May 19th - 21st. We'll be up on the 2nd Floor in the Farmiloe Building... only 4 weeks to go...
If you fancy a trip across the Channel you can now see the Hyde and Burgess Compact ranges at Moore Design, a furniture dealer in the heart of Paris. With their stylish new showroom and their varied range of products this looks like a great place to visit...
We have just recieved some photographs from event organisers Innovision from this summer's British Business Embassy that was held at Lancaster House in The Mall. The BBE was a unique event that was hosted by UK Trade & Industry (UKTI) during the Olympic & Paralympic Games and we were delighted to be a part of it. During the BBE this prestigious Neo-Classical building had 18 of its rooms transformed to showcase modern art and design from both new and established British designers, photographers, furniture makers, and sculptors. We're proud to say that two of our Finsbury sofas upholstered in Camira Blazer featured in the State Dining Room amidst good company in the form of the Matador Chair by Terrance Conran and a Damien Hirst artwork. Other contributors to the event included: Paul Smith, Jasper Morrison, Barber & Osgerby, Ross Lovegrove, Ron Arad, Pearson Lloyd, Matthew Hilton Bethan Gray, Dare Studios, Thomas Heatherwick & Grayson Perry.
We're pleased to announce that Ralph Buschow of Studio Buschow recently approached us to use the AR001 & AR002 arm chairs and sofas for the new work space at the London creative communications company CHI & Partners. We're glad to see they've bedded in well.

It's been a marathon of a show but we're now onto the home straight... Grand Designs Live ends tomorrow. It's been a busy week where we've met some lovely people and seen some great products; Beyond the Fridge, John Green, Tandem & The Retro Kitchen Company to name a few. We've even been fortunate enough to pick up a 'Grand Designs loves' plaque.
It's been great to meet all those who have visited us over the past 8 days and thanks too for all the positive response. We hope to be back again next year...
