Inside it is a home full of the depth and warmth of a period building. Lucy says ‘I wanted to design something that fitted into the family of buildings that formed a relationship with them. I wanted a similar palette of materials: red brick, timer, red pantiles. I wanted it to look and feel like a farmhouse in Suffolk and to feel timeless – just a simple farmhouse, all done very honestly.’
It’s a real tribute to superb Suffolk craftsmanship and lighting by architect-designer Tom Housden for the Hand&Eye Studio really fits into this considered space with its honest design aesthetic. The pendants are hand made in the UK using the warm hues of kiln-fired terracotta.
London based Hand&Eye Studio designs and produces the work of practising architect Tom Housden. Each item is designed by the studio and then produced in collaboration with small British manufacturers, all of whom are masters of their craft.
