Raw leather and alder wood work an artisan vibe – perfect lines are strictly out to lunch.

This bamboo pendant raises the style stakes a notch or two – its irregular shape adds extra edge.

Team an angled chair,smoked-oak table with a burnt-wood bench. Let’s not play it straight...

Thought this stool was sculpted by hand? Think again – it’s digitally designed and laser cut. Had us fooled...

Steam-bent furniture goes large with oversized cushions – echo the sofa’s design with a curved screen.

An egg and soldiers brekky in bed is a breeze with a stylish side table that includes a removable tray.

A slab of freshly felled oak, cut into an enormous board, makes an epic contrast to this close-up view of bark.


This tall, dark and handsome cabinet features hand-scorched cladding – playing with fire never seemed so cool.
