Nick James has collaborated with artist Bridget Jones to bring you this range of 1950’s inspired furniture.
Using Bridget’s expert knowledge of colour and print and Nick’s expertise in furniture, two creative minds have converged to create something of the past.
Inspired by 1950’s design and aspiration, Bridget Jones’s Jet pattern print has been used to create formica which has then been used to create a sideboard and drop leaf table.
The sideboard and table are made from Oak and specially printed Formica employing a ‘Jet pattern’ print by Bridget Jones.
Nick James is a designer maker of high quality, unique and creative furniture. Nick both designs and makes his pieces and takes pride throughout the process to ensure the integrity of his work. Much of Nick's work is made to commission, meeting the extact needs of every client, whilst being innovative and of the highest standards.
Nick James is a highly skilled craftsman. He’s an advocate of traditional woodworking techniques that are rare in contemporary practice. A machine can’t pick up a piece of wood, study the flow of the grain or make a decision about how to use it. Nick established his first class techniques whilst attending the country’s leading furniture college, Rycotewood. He uses the best time-tested methods of connecting pieces of wood by unbreakable mortise, tenon and dovetail joints.
Nick believes in elegance through simplicity, style through substance and solidity. As a natural breathing material, wood will always change with its environment. Every step of Nick’s manufacturing and design process has been tailored with this in mind.
Hearing Nick talk about stumbling on the most beautiful piece of wood is like hearing an explor er rejoice in the discovery of a new island. That passion is apparent in every aspect of his work from the initial designs through to the construction and the finish of the piece.
To Nick, each piece of wood has its own story which develops as the wood is transformed. The environment is very important to Nick James. Integrity and ethics are at the heart of Nick’s craftsmanship. He respects his materials and his attention to detail is evident in everything from the techniques he uses to the way he sources the wood. Where possible all timber is acquired from sustainably managed sources. Any surplus wood is recycled.
For every piece of furniture made a tree is planted
