Rest Easy: A New Line of Bedroom Furniture from Another Country

Since its launch in 2010, we’ve been fans of the contemporary craft furniture by UK-based Another Country. We’re adding their new bedroom furniture line to our wish list.

Designed by Another Country for UK home retailer Heal’s, the Sleep Series (sold at Heal’s as the “Craft Series”) is an appealing group of sleeping and storage pieces inspired by the functional forms, clean lines and enduring craftsmanship of Shaker furniture. As with other collections, Another Country manages to take this traditional inspiration and make it throughly modern and timeless. 

NB: During this week’s London Design Festival, you can visit Another Country at the designjunction show set in a 1960s postal sorting office in Chelsea. They will be launching “Series Three,” a collection inspired by Edwardian workshop furniture, as well as a new textile “soft” series.

Above: Another Country’s Bedroom Collection features five pieces that work as a group or independently. Made in Portugal of FSC-certified ash wood with Another Country’s signature authentic craft detailing: dovetail joints, traditional wood drawer runners, and brushed brass hardware. In the UK, the collection is sold exclusively through Heal’s.

Above: Finished with brushed brass feet and a soft natural linen-covered headboard, the Sleep Series Bed Two is available in single, double, and king sizes; £3,200 for the king size.

Above: Designed to sit at the end of the bed, the Blanket Chest Two can live comfortably anywhere; £1,400.

Above: The exposed brushed brass hardware stands in contrast to the cool ash wood. 

Above: Functional and slim, the Tall Boy Two offers maximum storage with a minimum profile. All the storage pieces, including the Tall Boy, feature brushed brass knobs; £3,000.

Above: The craft details really stand out on the diminutive Bedside Table Two. Like the storage chests, the table is designed with a small Arts and Crafts-inspired upright on the back of the tabletop; £1,400.

Above: Chest of Drawers Two features three drawers that grow in size from top to bottom. The top drawer is lockable, and the bottom drawer is sized generously to accommodate large items; £2,500.
