Chip off the old block

It’s like the adolescent kid of the mild-mannered parents. Literally in this case. Lutyens furniture and lighting has been recreating the designs of Sir Edwin Lutyens since 1987 but 2016 saw the great man’s granddaughter, designer Candia Lutyens, take on the mantel with her Lutyens Contemporary  range. Her aim is to bring a contemporary twist to the classic designs by using new materials and manufacturing techniques. The range includes chairs made from moulded ply, above, Perspex tables and bedside tables, lanterns and mirrors made from Valchromat, an engineered, self-coloured wood – which can additionally all be purchased pret-a-porter, online! Those with limited levels of lucre for Lutyens might be interested in their more affordable desk and table accessories, like condiment mills, clocks, lamps and candlesticks made from turned walnut and sycamore.
