Young & Norgate has a beautiful line of hand crafted Bespoke modern furniture. I really enjoy the sharp geometric lines found in these pieces. The Animate bedside table and writing desk are the stars of the show for me. I am pretty smitten with the drawer front’s beveled edge that allows it to set in and flush. The cool factor comes from the exposed drawer rail, it is both form and function. The bright colors mixed with the walnut are a nice juxtaposition.
In a fast moving world we make slow furniture. Every piece we make has had the luxurious ingredient of time mixed in to its being. Add passion, a good amount of graft and an unhealthy dose of perfectionism and you will get the base ingredients of our furniture. We love the honesty of wood. Its imperfections, its incessant movement years after the tree has been cut down. We want to celebrate this beautiful material in our furniture. By paring it with clean lined designs or contrasting it with colour, we allow it to continue telling its story.
