Hush by Naughtone

Our latest featured brand is one that you my not be familiar with if you are from the United States. British-based contemporary furniture manufacturer Naughtone is setting high standards in quality and design and is making a name for themselves both in the UK and internationally.

Cloud Sofa by Naughtone

The entire range of Naughtone products is designed to perform its own function and do it beautifully by using skilled British craftsmanship and quality materials. Materials like solid hardwood frames locally obtained from sustainably managed forests in Harrogate where the company is located and 100% wool fabrics, sustainably manufactured by Bute Fabrics on the isle of Bute in Scotland. They make an effort, as a company, to make  as little impact on their environment as possible while producing functional and well designed contemporary furniture.

Naughtone was founded in 2005 by Mark Hammond and Kieron Bakewell with the goal of creating genuinely useful, accessible and beautiful contemporary furniture for the British market as an alternative to the European brands that dominate the industry.

When you think of modern and contemporary furniture, you may think of Scandinavian design which helped define the 50′s and 60′s or Italian design which became popular in the 80′s and 90′s. Naughtone wants to become a major contributor in defining a new wave of British-style design in contemporary furniture both in the UK, as well as around the world. Judging by their sleek and original take on design, I would say that they are well on their way to doing just that.

Two and Three Seat Track Benches with Shared Backrest

Their range includes comfortable modern lounge chairs, sleek and contemporary sofa designs, and amazingly versatile upholstered benches all done in hard-wearing, versatile and colorful wool fabrics. They also offer a great selection of stools, tables and accessories all with that unique Naughtone flair.

Unfortunately, Naughtone is not readily available in the United States as of yet but to me, that just makes this cool and hip modern furniture brand all the more unique and interesting. If you interested in this unique brand of contemporary furniture that seeks to put the term “British Design” in the modern furniture industry’s parlance, check out their website at naughtone.com.
