Tom Raffield Launches Exclusive New Biophilic Inspired Luxury Planters.
With an experimental workshop set amongst six acres of ancient woodland in Cornwall, Tom Raffield designs are synonymous with nature; each product is hand-shaped using sustainable wood and created as sculptural pieces of art using a pioneering form of steam bending.
Tom Raffield’s new collection, The Green Range, continues to showcase the brands signature curves yet, for the first time, marries traditional steam bending craftsmanship with the skilled art of ceramics. The result? A boldly unique collection of luxury, contemporary indoor planters that simultaneously summon nature inside and transform living space.
The Tom Raffield Green Range: Inspired by nature, Shaped by steam, Curated by you.
Stand outs of the new range, available exclusively from Tom Raffield, include the Merryn Floor Standing Planters, whose twisted blades of steam bent oak stand shoulder to shoulder in a spherical formation to support a sleek edged, hand glazed, ceramic planting bowl. Other key pieces include the versatile, Morvah Ceiling Hanging Planter and Morvah Wall Hanging Planter, which feature a single, solid oak steam bent strap designed to cradle a handmade earthenware bowl.
“A celebration of sustainable, biophilic design and traditional craftsmanship, The Green Range is born from the nature that inspires it”
With elegance and versatility in abundance, extending this versatile design comes a wall hanging version. The Morvah planter is suspended from a gently arching wooden arm, steam bent from a solid piece of oak wood.
Sixteen elliptical blades of twisting steam bent oak stand shoulder to shoulder in striking spherical conduct to support a nestled, handmade earthenware bowl. A unique and eye-catchingly dynamic planter that is guaranteed to bring any space to life.
Tom Raffield and the workshop
Combining traditional techniques with modern design thinking, Tom Raffield breaks new ground – from their origins in 2008, right up to their pioneering products and services today.

The woodland studio provides the backdrop for a team of skilled makers trained by Tom. “Each piece we create has been on an experimental journey - individual, organic and carefully considered. We source everything from sustainable woodlands and coupled with the low energy steam bending process, it is very ecological with little wastage,” explains Tom Raffield, designer and maker.
Handcrafted in their studios in Cornwall, England, the range of contemporary lighting and furniture Tom Raffield creates is based on beauty, integrity and a desire to create unique, high-specification products that will be cherished by their owners for years to come.
