    Tom Faulkner Furniture: Beautifully Bespoke

    A look at some of their unique ranges and the inspirations behind them
    1 March, 2023

    Here at Blend Group, we know what it’s like to specialise in bespoke luxury. That’s why we love Tom Faulkner – one of Britain’s finest exquisite furniture and accessories designers and makers. Synonymous with metalwork, Tom and his team have over two decades of experience which has led to signature qualities including clean lines, distinctive silhouettes, simplicity and beautiful materials.

    Metal provides endless opportunities to challenge what’s possible with form. Tom’s designs are often inspired by nature, with the Papillon collection, for example, taking its cues from the interstitial lines that run between the boulders of California’s Joshua Tree National Park. Additionally, The Lily shape finds its roots in the aqueous silhouette of a lily pad, floating peacefully as the top of a Cocktail Table, for example.

    These considered forms are integral to the Tom Faulkner Furniture collection. However, they are endlessly customisable, creating the opportunity to produce bespoke pieces to suit your vision. Tom Faulkner has an extensive range of finishes available, from the classic Bronze, to the more intricate Butterfly options. Ulysseys Blue, for example, combines cool hues which flow into one another to entrancing effect.

    Their Specialist Finishes are formulated in-house using metal powders to produce rich, characterful surfaces, and are painted onto each piece by hand to achieve the perfect balance. Florentine Gold is among the most popular options, creating an antiqued effect without compromising on luminosity. These almost alchemical pigments can even be combined as illustrated in their Hug Pendant.

    Materials are a cornerstone of the Tom Faulkner practice. Richly patterned marbles bring added intrigue to signature designs like the Capricorn Dining Table. Dichroic glass casts cascades of technicoloured light over captivating pieces like the Papillon Cocktail Trolley, while Antiqued Mirror adds a sense of depth to streamlined classics like the Madison Coffee Table. There’s also an array of leathers to choose from, with robust yet beautifully smooth bridle leathers applied to designs like the Berlin Easy Chair, or more supple variants laid as a surface for desks like the Albany.

    Any of these premium materials can be mixed to produce furniture with an individual feel. Alternatively, you can introduce your own selections to upholster a piece to your particular specifications. The size and dimensions of Tom Faulkner’s designs can be tailored to suit your needs as well, given each piece is made to order in their own Wiltshire workshop. If you’re looking for an entirely bespoke creation, they are very happy to work together to create exactly what you’re looking for, remixing existing designs or concocting something entirely new.
