Fret Two

Some time ago whilst visiting the park I passed a house with the type of decorative block wall that was popular in the seventies. I was immediately arrested and stood staring at the pattern, I had seen it somewhere before. A couple of days later I was stuck on a new design for a sideboard when the pattern on the blocks just jumped into my head. After a little research and being very pleased with its Moorish origins I came up with a design incorporating it in the doors. I showed it to my brother, he wasn’t sure. ‘I’m not sure,’ he said. I smiled reassuringly. ‘It’s Moorish.’ I told him. ‘Oh I see,’ he replied. ‘Like a chocolate digestive.’ The Fret Two Door is part of a very moreish range of handmade and hand painted cabinets with inlaid laser cut frets in the doors and ends. Each self closing cupboard has a single adjustable shelf, except for the Tallboy which has two, and a painted back so that it can be used as a room divider. It comes in white as standard but other RAL colours are available on request.

Due to a physical limitation that prevents him from blowing his own trumpet Richard Baker is quite possibly the best furniture designer you’ve never heard of. Born in 1961, the year of the E-Type Jaguar and the son of a renowned English furniture maker, it was obvious from an early age that Richard had a burning desire not to do what his father did. However, after gaining a bunch of 5's in his CSE's, failing to finish box construction at technical college and getting fired from a men’s clothing emporium for wearing the wrong trousers his father decided he needed a course correction and put him to work in his factory sanding an infinite number of chair legs. So enamoured was Richard of his dusty new vocation that he ran away to Australia and thrived as a low achiever, he didn't look back, until he did. Having learnt the wisdom of actors, Richard returned to England and accepted his father's invisible cloak of credibility and so attired wrestled some cash from a hapless bank and with his wife Libby opened Rume, a furniture store with Richard as the creative director, which is a made up title that people without any qualifications use. Coming to terms with his imposter syndrome but not overcoming it Richard was surprised to discover that other people thought he was actually rather good at designing furniture, so he kept doing it and still does.
