Gabriel Ross is thrilled to be the first and only Canadian firm representing British designer, Steuart Padwick. Padwick's first collection debuted in the UK in 2009 and was quickly picked up by high end retailers such as The Conran Shop, Heals and Liberty. Launching in North America this year, grshop.com is the place to find Padwick designs online in Canada and we have a showroom order on the way for the viewing pleasure of those local or visiting Victoria BC.
The collection currently features 17 pieces of finely curated furniture and lighting including home office, bedroom, dining, desk and floor lamps, and versatile storage units. Padwick's hallmark design aesthetics include quirky legs, vivid colours and solid wood - all with a nod to British culture and wit.
The award winning Darcey Oval Table illustrates Padwick's primary interest in furniture legs and bases - often considered secondary by designers. Darcey measures approximately 84" x 41", making a perfect dining surface with plenty of leg room due to the base posture. Manufactured in Canada by Speke Klein, Padwickk has this to say regarding the partnership: “I want to produce more of my work closer to where it is sold – it makes sense for the business and it makes sense for the environment."
Recently featured in February's Food and Wine Magazine, the Double Cross Table is one of the most versatile pieces in the Padwick collection as it functions as both a console and dining table. Its lemon yellow legs and picket-fence like silhouette lends a more rustic charm to this piece, though it integrates well in any modern environment.
For bedroom, Steuart Padwick offers his Pointe sleep series that includes a modern bed frame, bedside table and two chests of drawers. The Pointe bedside table, featured in Elle Decor Magazine in 2010, offers concealed storage and compliments the matching bed frame perfectly.
Lighting by Steuart Padwick is fittingly named "Sticks". Composed primarily of wood, the tabletop and floor lamp have counterbalanced arms to perfectly position the lamp head - available in black and cream finishes. Padwick's Sticks Floor Lamp was featured in Garden and Homes Magazines in 2010 as part of a shortlist of floor lamps coined "Smart and functional designs guaranteed to light up a room in style"
Stay tuned for an update on Steuart Padwick's newest designs launching this week at London's leading independent design festival, Clerkenwell Design Week, May 21-23, 2013.
