Contemporary furniture designers to check out on our Directory

13 Dec 2020

Our Directory is the ultimate resource for finding practices to design, build and furnish your home. We’ve recently updated our listings with some contemporary furniture designers from our favourite makers and so we’re rounding them up here for you to suss out.

Fred Rigby Studio
Fred Rigby Studio are London-based interior and furniture designers, who have worked on projects from a reimagined Tuscan villa to Rosa Park’s Francis Gallery in Bath, Somerset. Their furniture offering includes the shapely Cloud Sofa, made for Francis, and is aptly named for its pillowy, puffy form. Curves are a defining feature of the collection, with pieces drawing references from pebbles and free-flowing lines, like the Kidney Desk. Check out their online shop for more.

Another Country
Another Country looks to the furniture traditions of Britain, Scandinavia, Japan and the Shaker movement to create modern classics that fuse minimalism and functionality with just enough contemporary detailing to keep things interesting. Our favourites are the solid oak dining table, boxy Sofa One and Hardy Chair, a modern interpretation of the classic captain’s chair crossed with a low-back Windsor. Their Marylebone showroom is now open six days a week by appointment. 

Benchmark Furniture
With clients including Ilse Crawford, John Pawson and David Chipperfield, Benchmark’s bespoke furniture commissions take pride of place in some of the world’s best interiors. But you don’t have to be a leading designer to get in on the action. The recently-updated OVO collection is a masterfully-crafted series of simple pieces designed by Foster + Partners, and is available to order now.
