Crafting a Difference

To us here at Tom Raffield, sustainability isn't just a buzzword—it's a way of life. Throughout 2023, we worked continuously to prioritise eco-friendly practices and materials, ensuring that each of our designs has a positive impact on both interiors and the planet. With our newly appointed Sustainability Coordinator, Katie, we have become trail blazers as sustainable business – ensuring we do all we can to support the planet, with our craft.

Although we have always measured our carbon emissions, this year we focused even more on how we can reduce them, including renewable energy – continuing our partnership with Ecologi. We have also pledged to reduce emissions by 50% by 2030.

We have used plastic free, recycled packaging for a long time but we regularly review our offering to ensure every design arrives to it’s forever home in the safest condition, in the most sustainable way. We continued to use sustainable, FSC certified packaging materials, but made sure to maximise the potential of all our bespoke packaging, whilst minimising waste.

Events and collaborations

Great things happen when creative minds come together. That's why we teamed up with a talented selection of interior experts and like-minded companies to provide you with beautiful content and exciting gifts.

15 years of Tom Raffield

We proudly marked a significant milestone this year, as we commemorated 15 years of innovative craftsmanship, environmental stewardship, and creative growth. From our beginnings in the iconic wavy, wooden house, we have thrived endlessly.

Paint & Paper Library

We worked with Paint and Paper Library to showcase how to create statement walls that make an impact on your wall, not the environment.

Biophilic design for rented homes.

One in five households in England and Wales now rent, a figure which has doubled in the last two decades. Renting continues to grow in the UK as many are simply priced out of home ownership and mortgages remain increasingly difficult to secure. We spoke to interior expert Sharon, of @a_story_of_home, to discover how she has made her mark on her rental home, and why biophilic design is so important.

Our year wouldn’t have been so amazing if it wasn’t for your unwavering support. Here are just a few beautiful spaces you have shared with us this past year…

"I chose the Arbour Armchair in Seagrass to sit next to my books - my little reading corner. It’s perfect and the sweeping curves are simply gorgeous. So well made too!"

- Carol M.

"A beautifully crafted and stunning Mullion Floor Light that arrived just two days after placing our order. Very well packaged and arrived in perfect condition. It looks fantastic in our sitting room, giving a lovely ambience to the space. This was our first Tom Raffield purchase but it won't be our last: we're already planning the next one!"

- Ivan G.
