Not bound by convention, our forward-thinking outlook means we’re constantly forging new and greener ways to run our business. We’re proud to push the boundaries of design. We pioneer new making practices and products using the latest technologies and systems to align our business with the very best.
Design through making, exploring materials and their limits. We are constantly developing new techniques, ways of working and ways to improve.
Genuine, original, the real deal: we pride ourselves on being unique. From our honest, handcrafted designs to the people and traditional techniques we employ, we stick to our roots and don’t try to be something we’re not. We’re confident in who and what we are, that’s what sets us apart from the rest.
Great design goes beyond our thoughtfully crafted pieces that stand the test of time. It’s about considering the ecological impact at every step in the design journey, seeking the route with the smallest footprint to protect the natural word that inspires us, and giving back to the community. At Tom Raffield, sustainability is a way of being and breathing.
Being ambitious has got us to where we are today. We strive to be the very best employers, designers and makers in the most sustainable way we possibly can. For us there is no end game it’s seeing how far we can push ourselves to learn, pioneer and make a difference whilst staying true to who we are.
Our focus is to form a business that flourishes and will last beyond our lifetime. We proudly craft designs that will become heirlooms of the future, shape relationships that will go from strength to strength, and make decisions based on what’s best for people and the planet. In our eyes, there is no other way.
We are driven by our strong guiding principles to become a business known for its honesty and authenticity. We are a pioneering brand that sets the bar high, from our product and customer service, to our supplier selection and transparency.
Learning never stops. In the same way that we transform straight grain timber into striking, steam bent products we feel passionate about educating and training our team to become leaders in their chosen field. We share techniques, we develop new skills, we teach ourselves, our customers, our suppliers. It’s a continuous loop that never ceases to stop.
Passion unites our team members and our customers and is at the very heart of everything we do. A passion for innovative British design, for the nature that inspires us, for everything we are striving to achieve daily: passion is our main drive.
