‘Jumped Up Joiner’ at Tent – Blog Tour 2011


Continuing on with ‘Blog Tour 2011’ and adventures at ‘Tent London’ I had the great pleasure of meeting fellow Yorkshire man and ‘Jumped Up Joiner’ his words not mine furniture design and maker Mr Anthony Hartley.

Anthony launched his new collection of dynamic contemporary furniture designs at ‘TENT’  they even have their own names from Mr Smith the second, Mrs Smith, Ednas 1 and 3, Sidney and Harrington. NB: This furniture is not Edible!

Anthony Hartley

Mr and Mrs Smith the second

Anthony, creates dynamic and engaging furniture of the highest technical quality. He produces each piece by hand, from original drawings through to finished product.

His furniture  is based on  on forms and colours which describe motion, giving each piece a sense of force and movement tightly constrained by the strong shapes and materials

The technical integrity of the pieces is achieved through his years of experience of joinery and creating furniture by hand, understanding the technology and science of his materials and pushing to the limit the stress of woods, ply and plastics. Hand finishing and the closest attention to detail means that each piece looks amazing and performs perfectly.
