How would you describe your style?

"We believe in understated luxury, making designs with quality materials and embracing these natural features to make the design stand out. Designs have a stylish and paired back approach to their decoration. They are practical and bold in their individual appearance but are conceived from a shared palette of materials and finishes, that allow the eclectic mix of designs work together throughout the studio’s entire range.  It is important that each design is identifiable as a unique piece. Daniel uses his education in furniture design and his love of the Dutch and British design movements of the early to mid 20th century to create harmonious designs with character."

"In 2021 we completed the design and manufacture of over 250 bespoke gathered and tailored lampshades for the Gleneagles renovation including their St Andrews’ Square townhouse. Other large-scale projects include the supply of bespoke lights made for the new San Carlo restaurant in London, where ten bespoke wall lights were designed from initial sketches and conversations with the client to a finalised design executed in-house using our brass manufacturing and soft gathered shades. At the time of writing, the studio is also in the process of supplying 50 lights to the newly developed Arthur Stanley House, London."
