Spring 2014 will see Bethan Gray Design launch a major new collaboration with leading US furniture and homewares retailer Crate and Barrel.
Bethan Gray is best known for her warm, contemporary, timeless and elegant design. She has a passion for using luxury natural materials, such as leather, marble and solid wood, combining these through both high-end craftsmanship and cutting-edge manufacturing technologies. From the onset of her career, award-winning Bethan has worked with international manufacturing and retail brands giving her a unique understanding of the design process and what works commercially.
Bethan’s recent successful collaborations include the G&T collection with furniture developer Thomas Turner, stocked at Liberty and Mint (London), Lane Crawford (Hong Kond & Beijing), Rinascente (Milan) and Bensimon (Paris). Further exploring her love of stone, she has collaborated with Wallpaper* Handmade and launched a range of marble dining tables for stone specialist Lapicida. An extremely commercially successful collaboration with the Design Collective at John Lewis, has helping reposition John Lewis as a design leader, and produced their best selling Noah Dining range. Spring 2014 will see her launch a major new collaboration with leading US furniture and home wares retailer Crate and Barrel.
Bethan draws inspiration from a variety of sources; from everyday objects that surround all of us, to discoveries whilst travelling the globe. Her designs are reflective of her personal history, strongly rooted to traditional Welsh culture and craft. Her great-great-grandmother defied nineteenth-century convention to become a cabinetmaker, while her grandfather worked as a forester and would make small carved objects for Bethan as a child - nurturing a love of crafting objects from natural materials. It is her attention to research, development and detail that has led to Bethan Gray to become one of the UK’s most commercially successful designers.
Curated by 100% Design, "New British" celebrates the revival of UK small-scale, high quality furniture and lighting, and will be featuring pieces from Bethan Gray’s G&T collection, alongside pieces from other leading UK design brands.
