Here at Marloe we're always on the look out for other British designers who create functional yet stunning pieces, and that's exactly what we found on a recent visit to Benchmark Furniture.
Nestled in the Berkshire countryside, a stone's throw from Hungerford, Benchmark's showroom and workshop are places of pure craftsmanship. With a collection of standard off-the-shelf pieces complemented by bespoke one-offs, it's clear they care very deeply about what they design and make.
Founded in 1984 by Sean Sutcliffe and Terence Conran, with a dream of creating a craft based workshop, Benchmark has established itself as a producer of beautifully designed furniture made in a responsible way and at a reasonable price.
Take a look and see for yourself - and maybe even treat yourself to British made piece.
