This summer’s big project for me is next year’s designs and brochure. Have therefore decided to spend this week doing some intensive design and marketing work, identifying trends and outlining new ideas.
For the next few months, the cabinet makers and I will be churning out four pieces a week, designed and tested (which is a lot on top of normal production and workload). However, have nominated head of woodwork and three newer and more positive members of the team to work with, including our furniture design graduate. It is making for a really inventive team – a blend of enthusiasm and knowledge, combined with technical design training.
I get so absorbed in these jobs, it’s virtually impossible to concentrate on anything else or relax. Am so furniture focused, I find it impossible to take in the plot of anything I watch on the box.
