Is it Furniture or is it Art ?

Style&Co - Kevin Stamper

If you have followed my last two mood boards you may have noticed the same furniture designer featured.  I must admit, I do love great furniture design and understated elegance. So, it’s not surprising, that one of my favourite designers is Kevin Stamper.

I first discovered Kevin Stamper’s amazing work at The Celebration of Craftsmanship and Design Exhibition.  I was spellbound by the beauty of the Plum Blossom Cabinet – it was love at first sight.  Never before had I seen furniture that was also a beautiful work of art.  I was so intrigued to see more of his work.  It’s Kevin’s exciting use of colour that sets him apart from other furniture makers.  So rarely is this seen in furniture.  Hand-dyed veneer that allows the beauty of the wood to shine through.

Kevin first set up his furniture company in 1992 with a workshop in Wimbledon.  His inspiration comes from his own water colour paintings.  As you look at his pieces, you can see the beautiful colours of nature and the landscape.  The pixilated design captures the mood and emotion of the scene.  Making these such special and unique pieces.

To achieve this signature style Kevin hand dyes his veneers.  The squares of sycamore are then precisely cut to match the design.  Each one is unique, possessing it’s own grain pattern and texture.

The pieces are all hand made to the highest quality, with a beautiful finish inside and out.  Look at the detailing below on the Estuary cabinet.  I found with all of Kevin’s furniture you have to open the door and see the beauty of the inside too.
