Just-Right Beds: Three Modern Heirloom Designs by Pinch of London

July 16, 2020

Russell Pinch and Oona Bannon design what they call “considered furniture.” For years now, we’ve been fans of the couple’s London studio, Pinch, and recently took note of their Christo line of wooden beds that look like refined versions of children’s book illustrations come to life. They’re also seemingly sized for the three bears: there’s a single, queen-size, and four-poster.

Of the Christo silhouettes, the couple say: “Shapes that are too dominant convey a ‘look at me’ vibe that feels too self-conscious for a room you want to relax in. One-note simplicity, on the other hand, risks being too beige. So in this case, we drew, modeled, redrew and remodeled until we were happy that the pieces had stature and elegance while also feeling comfortable with themselves.”

Oona cryptically tells us that the name of the line, “riffs on Julie Christie with a bit of informal grandeur thrown in. It sounds like a sweet nickname for a favorite godson.”

“Their furniture is both classic and simple with a contemporary overlay,” we wrote in our first post about Pinch Design back in 2009.
