They say;

WOODMANCOTE RETRO is a furniture design company based within the Stroud Valleys in Gloucestershire.

We have a passion for designing and creating beautiful, functional, simple and timeless furniture, that is accessible to all.

We produce tubular steel furniture that is unique and rooted in mid-century design. It’s simplicity stands out, while being versatile and durable enough for a range of interiors. The 10 principles of Dieter Rams pretty much sum up our ethos at Woodmancote Retro.

We are passionate about sourcing and salvaging beautiful local high-quality sustainable hardwoods and recycled plastics. We incorporate these into our furniture design, and by doing so reduce potential landfill and waste. This is why we started doing what we do – and have never looked back.

Our ethos is a commitment to supporting the local circular economy. We collaborate with like-minded suppliers and makers to produce high quality furniture that you will not find on the high street.

We love rattan furniture and this armchair from West Elm really caught out eye.

This gorgeous piece is a modern take on a classic French style. With a metal frame and rattan weave the chair makes a real statement.

Time to start adding some new keys pieces to your interior to give it a lift and new look for the coming season. Splashes of colour will lift the mood and give focus for a room.

Stand out pieces have a great patterned, midcentury feel, with strong muted colours. Layer up throws and cushions, cluster vases in various sizes and shapes, and add easy greenery with their great selection of artificial plants.

What a thing of beauty – sculptural, with the smoothness of concrete, a wonderful silhouette. The Hauteville low armchair may have a high price tag but this is like art to invest in.

£750 from Tin Design

They say;

In praise of the raw material, the shell construction, concrete and rebar. Refined by a technicality increasingly sophisticated, the Hauteville low armchair is a contemporary image of the low armchair of the 50’s. Unexpected flexibility and comfort. We Tin gals held a meeting on these for an hour or so, they were so comfortable we decided to stock the range! A lifetime investment.
