London Craft Week 2018

It was with much excitement that we hosted our own event at London Craft Week this year when we did a demonstration and talk in our showroom as well a tour around our workshop and stores.

Every year our desire to attend lots of lovely events by our suppliers seems to get scuppered and we never join anything more than a drinks party to celebrate the week, so at least with our own event we had no excuses but to attend!

Our Managing Director, Hugh, talked everyone through how we make our sofas, while Adam our Workshop Manager upholstered a frame by hand tying the strings, putting on a cane edge and even stuffing it with hair and fibre.

We had two un-upholstered frames in the showroom with different treatments on each arm to show how you can customise at a basic level. One arm had contrast piping, another flanged cord, another polished brass nailing and the final one a piping ‘on the edge’, instead of the usual under the arm.

It was a great morning with guests viewing various exciting, just finished, pieces as well as visiting the workshop downstairs following the demo.

Below are a few pictures and videos from the day.
