Derek Welsh: Graft

Work / Photography

Derek Welsh’s Graft collection features a whole host of design gems

It’s not often we feature furniture design here on It’s Nice That, and we like to think that means you can rest assured that when we do, it’s seriously good stuff. You’ll be pleased to hear that Derek Welsh’s new collection, Graft, is no exception to this rule, featuring admirable craftsmanship and beautifully selected materials.

Graft is Derek’s attempt at moving away from expensive one-offs and bespoke pieces, culminating in a collection of stunningly-designed modern utility pieces with everyday functionality. It’s all smooth lines and restrained colour palettes made from unfinished oak and linoleum that gives each piece a vintage edge despite its contemporary design. Also impressive is Derek’s collaboration with photographer Reuben Paris to ensure the shots of each piece are just right – the kind of attention to detail we can’t help but admire.
