Functional Art – bespoke furniture
We often describe our bespoke furniture as functional art. Chris is a creator of unusual furniture with design that’s less ordinary than standard. But that said if you are designing furniture then it still needs to be serviceable. We believe every piece we design and make should have a practical purpose as well as artistic notability. Functional art is about getting the best of both worlds by blending interesting artistic design with function.
Last weekend we exhibited our furniture which included two new pieces at the Hendall Arts Exhibition. The event featured a stunning mix of art and sculpture along with our functional art furniture. Displaying art alongside practical design cleverly shows how the two work so well together. And better allows the visitor to visualize decorative arts in a room or display setting.
New furniture for our collection
Firstly, the latest addition to join our coffee table collection is the modern industrial styled Sigiriya. Sigiriya the pyrite table is steel made then hand finished in real aged brass. This contemporary table displays a new design style for us with boxy angular lines.
The second new piece is the Paisley Bench. Using the paisley coffee table base but sliming it down then topping with solid oak wood slats for the seat.
Hendall is a beautiful location and a great space to show arts across the disciplines, indoors and out. Luckily the weather was fine. So the outdoor terrace area was a pleasing space to view our contemporary benches and the other sculpture on display.
