The Archie Collection

Handcrafted in England

By Adam, Nov 12 2013 06:26PM

In the workshop we are currently building 3 special edition Archie Bar Stools ready for the launch of the design at the Interiors UK show, 19th-22nd January at Birmingham NEC. We will be exhibiting at the show for the first time and these stools will display the bespoke nature of our work.


The aim was to create a construction that challenged the physical properties of the materials whilst maintaining the natural curves and signature industrial styling that runs throughout the Archie Collection. The elegant steel blade is cut by hand and shaped around a wooden former (shown below). Two of the steel blades are laminated with thin strips of wood to create the main support and combining the properties of the materials.



We have been making wooden seats from 3 different timbers to both compliment and contrast the steel blade. The wood is carefully selected and then goes through a number of processes to shape and finish each seat. The wooden seats are sleek, comfortable and long lasting, finished in a lacquer to protect and preserve the wood.




The steelwork for each stool will be finished with one-off paint jobs exclusive to the show. We use an exciting selection of colours with different timbers to suit different environments. The two pack paint provides a durable finish that makes our furniture suited to both indoor and outdoor use.

I am excited to be exhibiting for the first time at the Celebration of Craftsmanship and Design at the Thirlestaine Long Gallery in Cheltenham. The show, which takes place from the 17th-26th August, is the largest selling exhibition of high quality bespoke furniture in the country attracting visitors and exhibitors from around the world.


I will be launching two new designs from the Archie Collection including the much anticipated dining table.


Last year I visited the show and was blown away by the quality of the work on show and this year promises to be just as special. I hope to see some of you there...

We are close to finishing the first Archie Benches, the first seating option from the Archie Collection. The benches offer a versatile solution for the home, well suited to being paired with a small Archie table to create a compact dining area.


The bench will be displayed for the first time at The Celebration of Craftsmanship and Design in Cheltenham but will be available to order from the 1st June.
