Makers' Eye double award winners!

May 25th 2015

To add to our winning of the Bespoke Furniture category in the National Wood Awards last year we are proud to announce that our 'Poon' two drawer desk for St Hugh's College Oxford has now won a sought-after Design Guild Mark.

Given by the Furniture Maker's Company, our guild body, this honour is awarded for Excellence in Design in British Furniture.

Desgners Tony Portus and Simin Pirie created the desk as part of a larger range of desks, library shelving, low tables and refectory tables for the new Dickson Poon China Studies Centre, commissioned by St Hugh's.  With further pieces now being added to the range this work has proved attractive to both private and business clients, and is a really exciting development for us!
