Tom Faulkner, the founder of the business, has been “making things”, as he says, for 25 years. It all started with a coffee table, which he decorated using stencils and spray-paint. Impressed by his own ingenuity he started to sell tables to friends and family, and when redundancy from the world of music suddenly arrived he took a deep breath and started a business. “It was a leap in the dark” says Tom. “Then I knew nothing of business, or interiors, or furniture for that matter!”
In 1995 Tom discovered metal. He needed a chair to sit on for an exhibition of his tables, but he didn’t want just any old chair. He found a small forge in Wiltshire who could make him some, to his own design. Metal was an amazing discovery for Tom, he was seduced by its stylistic possibilities – the fact that it could be bent and twisted into almost any shape you liked. He was thrilled by its strength, versatility, and simplicity.”
Tom started to design new tables and dining chairs.
