Deadgood. Deadgood indeed. I. Would. Like. Most. Things. On. Their. Website. A design collective of furniture and product designers have joined forces to produce a solid, polished and well-executed business. Beautifully presented in a sensible and well-thought through approach, enabling the products to shine in their own right without having to compete with bad visual clutter. And shine their products do.
Above is the splendid ‘Harvey’ 3-seater sofa which was designed in-house at Deadgood and is a blend of everything that makes Britain great. Using a combination of tweed and leather you get a hybrid sofa which references the past whilst having its four legs firmly in the present. ‘Working Girl’ stools have a similar genetic pool. A simple design sees a element of industrial past combined with bold striking modern-coloured legs.
But it’s not all work and no play. We see a constant ability to giggle and have fun and why not? Who said design has to be serious all the time. Using the British artist John Burgerman’s drawings to decorate rugs and chairs sees this lighthearted approach in action, as does Lee Broom’s delectable ‘Parq Life’ collection and the Capsule armchair (below). Be sure to check out the rest of their designs on their website and bookmark it. I reckon we’ll be seeing a lot more of them in the future.
