Furniture Collection by Jonathan Saunders
Alexander Zaxarov
Feb 18, 2020

Having stepped back from the whirl of the fashion calendar, Jonathan Saunders is returning to his first love with a collection of minimalist furniture.

‘When I started the development, I had an almost pent-up need to try lots of different techniques,’ he explains. ‘I wanted to work with resin, with stone, and all these combinations of materials.’ That said, he’s constrained himself to three groups that form the basis of the pieces: marquetry, tubular steel and textiles.

The tubular steel group includes a square stool with leather upholstery; a ‘pyramid’ table made of interlocking squares with an inset resin top; and an armchair with a lattice work of nylon webbing. The marquetry group uses sycamore and stained beech to create a long bench, a set of shelves with crystal surfaces and a cube stool. For the textile group, Saunders wanted to explore a more free-spirited approach, creating one-off textiles for interiors, upholstery and wall hangings, made using his signature free-pouring and screen printing technique.
