Quick update

I have not been keeping up with a weekly blogg as I have been busy! We have just finished two bedside cabinets and nearly another wardrobe for the client that had the "giant" wardrobe just before Christmas.

I am pleased to say that our client has ordered the new coat hook designs so I should have some in situ photos available soon.

Our new collaboration with Dan Griffin and Roz, under the banner Griffin+Sinclair, is going well with lots of new ideas in the pipeline - chairs, shelving and tables - plus some new ideas for multi-functional furniture. All very stimulating and giving my work a new impetus so keep watching this space.

Bill Amberg

The Griffin + Sinclair team attended a fantastic CPD talk by bill amberg last week. The incredible leather expert spoke about his love for leather and gave a step by step guide on how it is treated for different purposes. 

He passed around some of the most exquisitely soft pieces of leather we have ever touched and talked through different techniques such as knitting leather which gives an elasticity and could be used on the backs of chairs.

Favourite quote from the event...



'My designers work inside the workshop! It promotes creativity' Bill Amberg.

We know exactly what you mean!
