Growing up surrounded by the natural beauty of Exmoor, England, Tom Raffield was inspired at an early age by the unspoiled landscapes of his environment. Whilst studying at art school he developed an innovative steaming method which allowed him to manipulate a variety of wood types and bring his stunning designs to life. These contemporary pieces are heavily influenced by forms found in nature, and are constructed using sustainable materials and ecologically sound practices. Handmade in Cornwall, England, Tom Raffields exquisite collection of lighting and furniture offers a remedy to the current throw-away culture, and re-introduces the concept of the cherished collectable.
