Great fun at this year's #clarkenwelldesignweek  a real shame there is no Farmiloe building this year. 


Apart from the great woodcarver down in basement of St John's and a few makers in the dungeon there is less craft based stuff and less woodwork generally. Have the exhibition coats gone up?  Lots of Danish and Italian firms selling office stuff.

Arts & Crafts Morris chair - Arts & Crafts Settle

We spent eight years looking for the right sofa for our awkward lounge & then Heliconia was recommended to us. 

Chris visited our home to measure and see the space. He then navigated around some red herrings that we provided in our brief, guiding us towards the best design. The final price was surprisingly reasonable considering the quality of materials, craftsmanship and bespoke design. 

We could easily have paid the same in high street for something far less suitable. The final design is the perfect style for our Arts and Crafts home. Chris even met the challenge of getting the settle through our narrow front door. The settle is both beautiful and functional and it has transformed our home. It is lovely to think that it will last a lifetime.

Galley Dining Table - Foal

We contacted Chris because we recognised the high quality craftsmanship in his work. We had an idea of what we wanted, and by working with him, we were able to realise a perfect design. Chris's approach in collaborating with us enabled a greater level of creativity and resulted in a unique and beautiful object (the Foal Table). 

His attention to detail in refining and realising the design was intrinsic to the process. He made maquettes and he wasn't satisfied until we were all happy with the design. He also spent time helping us choose the right wood. The finished table exceeded our expectations and the Foal has become a prized piece of furniture.

Writing Desk in walnut and maple

I met Chris when he was exhibiting his cocktail cabinet at MADE London crafts fair at One Marylebone. The cabinet is a true "object of desire" - I love the design, workmanship and the aesthetic appeal. I had no space for a cabinet but picked up a business card after chatting to Chris and knew exactly who I wanted to commission to design a desk a few months later. 

Chris is a pleasure to deal with and he spared no effort in the design stage and was not at all pushy in the process. It was apparent that he takes great pride in his work and in delighting his clients. The end result has surpassed my expectations and I love the fact that a photographic storyboard illustrates the creative journey.

Fitted wardrobe and bedroom chest of drawers

I was delighted to work with Chris to commission a number of pieces for my house bringing both design and manufacturing ideas together with the vision I had for the overall look and feel for various rooms. My son is delighted with his bedroom wall unit and my wife loves the natural look to the bedside drawers that have been made by Chris. 

Chris also designed made and installed the hall console table and mirror in a very tight space-it looks great in Walnut and steel which complement the other materials used in the hallway."

Spalted Lacewood Coffee table #7

#spalted leg frame for #LondonPlane #Lacewood #coffeetable is planed, scraped & sanded & ready for oil.

Spalted Lacewood Coffeetable #6

My #coffeetable in #spalted #LondonPlane & #Lacewood has been reduced to the smallest of components and whilst its strength has yet to be tested, its tiny limbs could certainly have done with more localised cramping. Too much play....
