With an experimental workshop set among 6 acres of ancient woodland in Cornwall, England, Tom Raffield’s lighting and furniture designs are synonymous with nature; each product is hand-shaped using sustainable wood and created as sculptural pieces of art using a pioneering form of steam-bending.  

Coinciding with an outstanding and well-received appearance on Channel 4’s Grand Designs and retail exclusive collections for John Lewis and Heal’s, the launch of Tom Raffield's new collection of lighting and furniture in autumn 2016 marks an exciting new chapter for the brand.
