Some of our Creations

  • In Touch With Nature

    Right now, one of the most popular interior design concepts is the ideal of a natural, clean and holistic home, filled with and inspired by nature.

    This design concept takes inspiration from fairytales and storybooks, and draws on a basic colour palette and the use of natural materials. At Free Range Designs, we love helping you to create the home of your dreams, so here are some suggestions of things you can do to make your home in touch with nature.

    Colour Scheme

    For a tranquil, nature-inspired interior design, it’s a good idea to use a basic natural palette for your colour scheme, in order to make sure all of the elements tie in well together. For instance using gentle greys, whites and blues for base wall colours, with touches of charcoal black.

    For soft furnishings and accents, take inspiration from all you would see out in the open and combine this with your personal tastes. Colours such as yellow, green, light brown, pastel pink and floral shades will all work well to accomplish this theme.

    Furniture

    When furnishing your home with a theme of nature in mind, it is important that wherever possible you use natural materials, particularly wood. This will work to complement the fairytale-inspired, holistic look and create a pleasing, comfortable environment to live in.

    Introducing furniture that enhances the feeling of whimsy and quirkiness will also help to accomplish this look, as well as creating focal points for your rooms. Pieces such as driftwood beds, handmade dining tables and bespoke seating that retain the natural curves and character of the wood used to make them will all contribute to a truly natural feeling home.

    Accents

    Accents and accessories are the finishing touches to any home or interior design, and choosing the right accent pieces will help you to perfectly complete your nature-inspired spaces.

    Handmade items made from ethically sourced and natural materials, such as driftwood hearts, driftwood mirrors and dream-catchers, will all enhance your fairytale design, whilst also matching your furniture. These natural wall hangings will help you to complete your home and turn it into a place where you can relax, unwind and be at one with nature.

  • Driftwood Banister and Stairs

    We have just returned from installing this driftwood oak banister in Reading. The client wanted to replace her straight normal banister with something more rustic and charming. So she called the specialist wibbly wobbly  carpenters to make her a funky hobbit styled banister.

    We had a good time making this, thanks Lucy and Ben.

  • Creating a Unique Wedding Rooted in Nature

    As spring and summer edge closer and closer, the wedding season will soon be upon us, and the trend for outdoor weddings is getting more popular year upon year.

    If you want a down-to-earth, quirky ceremony nestled in nature, then an outdoor wedding is perfect for you, and our handcrafted wedding arches create the perfect scene for you to say your vows.

    Wedding arches provide a great focal point and can be personalised by weaving flowers or special messages through them.

Forged in all sorts of designs, these chairs can become the focal point of any occasional setting, and will be particularly useful for the bride and groom if you choose to have readings or performances during your ceremony.

  • Everything is Possible

     “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible’!”

    - Audrey Hepburn

    One of the most popular questions asked all over the world is ‘what do you do?’ which of course refers to your occupation. For many, this question comes with a certain weight of trepidation and pressure, for us though it is one of the most satisfying questions to answer. And when Wickes asked us what we do, we were more than happy to go one step further and show them.

    As you will see in the video below, what we do is a little different and the whole process relies entirely on creativity. From seeing the finished product in the driftwood strewn around the Dyfi estuary, to adding the finishing touches to our furniture, the most important aspect is creativity.

    Creation is what we live for, and being able to make a living from it makes it all the sweeter!

    For a little closer look at how we do it, press play on the video below and sit back and enjoy...

     

    Specialising in the unique requires that we must put convention firmly in its place on a daily basis, choosing rather to take the route less travelled.

    If you enjoyed our video then please take the time to share it and help to spread the message about what we do.

    Thank you.

     

  • "Once upon a time there was a teacher looking for a special chair...

    Once upon a time there there was a teacher who wanted to read a magical story to her class of children. To read her story, she wanted to sit upon a seat that would inspire the same mystery and wonder she hoped to get across in her tale. The teacher was looking for a natural, wooden seat, full of character and charm that she could use in her classroom or outside in the playground. A playground chair, a story time chair, an enchanting focal piece from which the story will unfold ...

    Once upon a time chairs are here to be found.

  • New Garden Bench for Spring 2015

    The first snowdrops are starting to appear and with them the promise of spring being not too far away. As we dream hopefully of warmer weather to come, we've been working on new outdoor furniture designs, and here is our latest Garden Bench.

    Designed with a similar playful feel to our Pixie storytelling chair, this two seater outdoor bench will provide a space for contemplation and relaxation in any garden, park or school playground area. Bring on the sun - we're ready for you!

  • Four Poster Bed for Yurt

    We just received these photos of a four poster bed that we made for a glamping site in Northumbria. The bed is made from silver birch thinnings and we tried to keep as many of the branches intact as possible. Designing furniture for yurts also meant that the back posts of the bed were lower that the front posts.

    "Just sending you an image of your amazing bed. We love it and so do all our beds"

    Very best wishes, 

    Rob

  • Stylish Rustic Furniture

    Who says that rustic furniture could not be stylish too. Here are some photos of our rustic four poster bed in the trendy The Hand and Flowers restaurant and guest house.

    In 2011, The Hand and Flowers became the first pub to receive two stars in The Michelin Guide. They are also the proud holder of four AA rosettes and currently voted number one UK restaurant by Restaurant Magazine.

  • Greeting from Free Range Designs

     

    Seasons greetings from a cool and crisp, sunny mid-Wales.

    We've had a busy year that's included moving workshops from the top of a mountain to the luscious valley below and recruiting some fantastic new makers to the Free Range fold. Poised and ready for a bright new year, we wanted to share some of our favourite pieces of 2014.
