We love the work (and workmanship) of Pinch Design in London; a collaboration between husband and wife team Russell Pinch and Oona Bannon (the former was senior product designer at the Conran Group). Their furniture is both classic and simple with a contemporary overlay that would go well with either "concrete or country," as they say.
