New Designers show review 2011-Thread&Berry Martin Stephenson
There were loads of other goodies to discover at New Designers part two. Here’s what stood out from the furniture, designer maker, product design section: From Northumbria University I loved Thread&Berry soft toys by Martin Stephenson (always sucker for a nice soft toy).

New Designers show review 2011-Toby Whitworth
There was an outstanding selection of wood based furniture design from the Building Crafts College. Makes me want to study how to make useful things with my hands again. Toby Whitworth created a beautiful curved laminated coffee table in zebrino and oak.

Raymond Coe‘s bold laminated coffee table came in ash.

And a more linear coffee table was designed by Sofia Linden. Wish I had money to fill my house with this kind of bespoke design.

New Designers show review 2011-Paul Butcher
The Really Tallboy by Paul Butcher was very eye catching, inlaid with a design that looked to be inspired by animal markings or paw prints.
