Introduction to the first collection
Here at Plant & Moss we enjoy creating products of high quality with character & charm. Handmade in Great Britain, our products are made using a range of time honoured skills and modern techniques. We produce our work in small batches, seeking to create designs that will enrich an interior with exclusivity, style and character.
- Odd Couples Bench -
Personifying the quirky couples at the restaurant that sit next to each other instead of opposite, Odd Couples Bench embodies human characteristics. The contrasting backs represent these different characters whilst paying homage to traditional chair making.
Our first collection, which contrasts natural and traditionally crafted pieces with reappropriated industrially-produced objects, comments upon the ideals of heirlooms and inheritance surpassing the rush of materialism. The desire for quality is back. The focus on “improve not move” and the desire for added meaning in everyday objects sees people reinvesting in their homes and furniture.
We hope that you will enjoy and find pleasure in the character and humility created within this collection.
- Log Stool -
Turned by hand from freshly fallen trees, Log Stool is designed to crack and display its own unique pattern. Naturally changing over time, it becomes an organically formed art piece brought into the home.
You’ll usually find us in our studio in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham, but if you have a question you might find it easier to contact us here: firstname.lastname@example.org

A busy time at the Plant & Moss studio:
Recently it has been a busy time at the Plant & Moss studio. The past few weeks has seen us running round the country. We’ve been visiting manufacturers, taking products to POP-UP shops and preparing for exhibitions. We have been involved with Urban Bird who have setup a popup shop in Winchester as part of their fashion week. Urban Bird have put on a great show with a mix of all that is design, ranging from products, furniture and lighting to photography, art and textiles.
Top Drawer: Stand Q28
For our first time ever we will be showing a selection of our work at Top Drawer London, giving the eager ones of you out there an opportunity to see some of our new work up close before the London Design Festival.
Top Drawer is from the 11th to 13th of September 2011. It will bring together an inspirational showcase of over 600 carefully selected British and international suppliers to the central location of Olympia, London. We look forward to welcoming you to our stand. Here at Q28
We are excited to say that this year in September (22nd-25th) we will be exhibiting not only at Top Drawer but also at the Tramshed. The Tramshed received a huge amount of interest when it launched last year. This year the event will build on its success from last year again in the Tramshed, Shoreditch.
Thinking of Christmas (already?)!
In the world of magazines its that time already! We were selected by Mydeco Boutique as one of their highlighted designers for their ‘Christmas in July 2011’ event.
Hosted by Home House we met for the ‘bloggers breakfast’ followed by press invitations for a preview of whats to come later this year. On show was a great preview collection by an eclectic selection of designer makers, all launching new products chosen especially by Mydeco Boutique for their Christmas shop. The work demonstrated the high level of quality and range of work available by British designer makers today. The British Designed & Made movement looks only to grow stronger with this collection of work, also the theme chosen and highlighted by London Design Festival for September this year.
