Perch

Perch is a hallway bench that gives you a place to "perch" your shoes and umbrella.

The hallway is often regarded as a space of transition, used to store belongings which one takes with them when leaving the house. Space can often be limited in the hallway and can become cluttered very easily. Perch encourage uncluttered living, getting the user to focus on what they need.

Made from solid American White Oak, Perch is a premium piece of furniture designed to last. Three wooden Oak spindles provide shoe storage for up to four pairs of shoes. The brushed aluminum Insert houses a single umbrella. This encourages the user to only store what is necessary.

The Ample Rocker

The Ample Rocker, the rocking chair that gives you ample space to relax.

Inspired by the traditional spindle rocking chair and informed by user research, the Ample rocking chair is designed to create an immersive experience. The wide spindle frame and two deep fibre-filled cushion pads cradle the user. The integrated arm covers can be lifted over and used as lap blankets, creating a ‘cosy’ sensation further informing the narrative of comfort and relaxation. The detachable back cushions and wrap around blanket can be removed to allow the user to achieve a more traditional look if so desired.

The contrast created between the wide traditional wooden spindle structure and oversized soft cushions creates a unique aesthetic that sets it apart from other rocking chairs on the market.
