No, not THE missing link but the missing member of the Bespoke Consortium team. In the six months following our launch at the beginning of the year we have been approached by a host of talented interesting artisans including no fewer than four blacksmith/metal workers. All were impressive on several counts but our choice to complete the line-up is the lovely and talented Alex Smith who runs a forge at… read the rest of “We found our missing link”

Google 'how to be happy' and any number of expensively qualified or self-appointed psychologists will inform you that in their academic, painstaking and sometimes just opinionated studies of irritatingly happy people, two essential truths consistently emerge.

Bespoke Consortium member Jonathan Waights was approached by an old contact at LRF Designs to add an authentic artisan element to the décor of an ambitious 200 room five star hotel project in Beijing.

It is ridiculously exciting to see a vague idea nurtured for years start to turn into reality. The harder we try to find a fatal flaw the more beautiful the whole concept starts to look and I feel even more certain now we are looking at an idea which will capture imaginations and transform… read the rest of “Bespoke Consortium - it's hotting up!”

More need for Bespoke Consortium
Had a really enjoyable meeting with another potential Bespoke Consortium member yesterday. It is fascinating to see people work - the skill, artistic flair and ability to interpret a brief never fails to inspire me.
