Furniture design: contemporary design unified with traditional materials and finishes

 Tim Oldham

"I always try and consider aesthetic and functional design from new perspectives, and try to realize designs which fully suit contemporary life in the domestic, commercial, aesthetic and media settings - with great emphasis placed on the degree of finish and functional quality of the finished piece."

 After graduating from Kingston University in 1990 in Furniture and Product Design Tim spent several years in the Cevennes, France, working with different materials such as wood and stone through all stages of production of interior and exterior design projects.

Since returning to the UK in 1997 he has taken a design-led approach hand-in-hand with his practical 'making' skills: combining modern and traditional craft techniques with reference to his specific experience with natural materials.
