One Foot Taller at Timorous Beasties Shed April 7, 2017 15:30

Glasgow. Timorous Beasties and One Foot Taller met in 1995 in Glasgow.  We've been friends and collaborated on various things over the years, even though I moved to France and have been running One Foot Taller from afar since 2007. I planned a March trip to Glasgow in order to do some work with the Glasgow School of Art, meet with designers clients and manufacturers in Scotland. So... we decided to get some of my work up with theirs in the new Timorous Beasties Shed space, - a beautiful and industrial showroom, big enough to celebrate the scale of their work. We chatted a little as they got the space together so it was lovely to see it in action at the end of my week there.
On a rainy Friday evening the other week people wandered in to see that TB wall-coverings and fantastic upholstered furniture were shown in full glory, illuminated here and there by One Foot Taller clusters of lamps and suspensions. A great night in the Shed and a lovely way to see the pieces complimenting each other. Sometimes intricate, sometimes bold and always impressively interesting, the surface patterns on show from Timorous Beasties provide a beautiful and rich environment for calm and elegant lighting to float within. It’s a joy, after all this time, to see our products working together as well as ever.

No no, not bored - just making boards. Have to stop once the snow's thick and the car's packed though... snowboards are even more fun than sanding boards.

Go to the boutique page to order some of these boards fresh off the chop saw.

Mine landed in the deep shelf on the left... September 11, 2015 15:24

When you have to keep everyone's stuff off the floor, it really should be shelves: Make em solid, big enough, and make sure that they're all different sizes for organise-tastic pazazzzzzzzzzzzz… These ones are about to go in the bathroom and be covered in lotions, bubbles, ducks, towels and toilet paper. I'm tempted to just keep them in the bedroom for clothing target practice, - "where did your T-shirt land?"

No. That would be shelfish. This'll go in the projects ideas page, in oak and in larch...

...

Quand vous avez besoin de ranger vos affaires il vous faut une étagère...Il faut qu'elle soit grande et solide, avec des lieux de tailles différentes pour se faire plaisir en rangeant...

On va mettre cette étagère dans la salle des bains, mais je suis tentée de la laisser dans la chambre, pour lancer des vêtements dessus.

L'étagère sera disponible... (Chêne ou Mélèze) sur la page projets idées.

Some people haven't sanded wood, seen that change and and smelt that smell. Try it. I'd better finish sandin.
