How would you describe your style?

"The studio is eclectic, influences come from the natural qualities of the material we are using or an interesting detail that is created during the manufacturing process. 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. The studio works from a carefully selected palette of materials, so whilst the designs are unique there is a connection throughout the range and a focus on the natural beauty of the material."

Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

"In 2020 we completed a set of 12 bespoke scalloped lights for the recent Gleneagles Hotel refurbishment. These lights included an inverted domed lampshade with scalloped edges and decorative Antique brass caps and finials. The project used a fabric selected and sourced by the client, which was then cut gathered by hand to create the lampshades. The lights were made from solid brass, aged and polished back to create our antique brass finish. These lights are now installed in the luxurious bedrooms of the famous Scottish hotel."
