Clean and Simple: Furniture from a Low-Key Londoner

February 5, 2015

“In general, I’ve always strived to do things as simply as possible,” London furniture designer Dean Edmonds tells Port Magazine. “I’d like to think that by keeping the look and feel of my pieces clean and simple, they can work in any environment.” Edmonds lives in London but commutes to his workshop in Herefordshire, which is next door to his father’s steel fabrication workshop. “There’s an oak mill down the road, so I have everything I need,” he says. His pieces are made to order (contact Edmonds for pricing). Here’s a sampling of our favorites.

Above: A privately commissioned oak veneered ply and steel Folding Table.

Above: Slatted-Back Chairs made from oak-veneered ply and steel. 

The Marble and Steel Coffee Table is available from 1934.

Above: The Stacking Stool with a wax/oil-finished black Valchromat top and lacquered steel legs is £100 ($152) from Bermuda Trips.

Above: The oak-veneered plywood and steel Cabinet.

Above: The String Series is “an experiment in steel and an homage to the string chair. I hope to show the beauty and fragility that steel can possess, much like the string of the chair that was at first the inspiration.”

To see more, go to Dean Edmonds and shop our Furniture finds.
