HANDCRAFTED DESIGNER GARDEN FURNITURE AND LIGHTING MADE IN CORNWALL
Tom’s furniture designs couldn’t be manufactured on an automated factory production line. His designs are truly handmade and they are both artworks and sustainable, functioning pieces. Tom’s portfolio includes designer garden furniture, relaxer chairs, outdoor tables, wooden benches, lampshades, standard lamps, ceiling lights, side tables, dining tables, floor standing lights, loop chaise lounges, log baskets and loop coat hangers.
Whether you’re looking for a different product size that is offered on his website, or require a completely unique design, Tom can make adjustments to an existing item or accept a commission to produce a piece that fits perfectly into your home.
Tom Raffield ‘s work is Eco-friendly!
His dedicated team handcraft sustainable lighting indoor furnishings and designer garden furniture using the process of steam bending. They always begin with high quality wood and this sustainable timber is mostly sourced from the UK. The timber is steam shaped by hand in their workshop in Cornwall. This is a low energy, environmentally friendly process where the wood is passed through a steam-filled tube. The heated and moist wood becomes malleable and can then be bent into almost any shape. The wood then cools but the shape memory is retained.
Quality Build Process
There are no nasty glues and very little waste. Once the wood has dried out the team hand makes either bespoke pieces or small batches of existing designs. Each product is built with care and stringent quality control to ensure longevity. The stunning and beautiful shapes that are found on the Cornish landscape have always influenced Tom’s designs.
Tom’s business has grown significantly over the past year thanks to investment and dedication. He has built and moved into his new woodland workshop, taken on three additional employees, introduced fresh photography on his state-of-the-art website with a new brand video, as well as revitalising the content of his blog and social media accounts. All this activity has seen the business grow locally and internationally, capturing the attention of interior designers, designer garden furniture retailers and consumers worldwide.
