Design Studio Isle of Trees has started a range of furniture aimed at artists who are looking for space, style and flexibility with an eco-friendly slant. The range is brought out under the Factree division, and on order you can get trestle tables, benches and bookracks. The furniture is produced from a single sheet of wood, making sure that there is no wastage. The tables and tops can also be printed on to, making each table unique.
We're featuring the first prototype range which doesn't have any prints or design on, only nice bright colours.

IMG_0410 A new furniture shop opened in Woodstock called VAMP:
Worshipers of fine design from decades past and admirers of ingenuity are joining the crowds visiting VAMP, the recently opened interior shop, celebrating stylish furniture, décor and homeware products sensitively revamped with contrast and colour. VAMP is located in the old St Mary’s School, Corner of Treaty Street and Albert Road, Woodstock. Original items of furniture, large and small, ranging from art deco and retro to Scandinavian inspiration have been carefully sourced from all times and places and have then been perfectly restored and customised, on-site in the workshop, with profound technical confidence and a colour-burst of creativity. The VAMP visionaries are Michael Dodds and Paula van Niekerk. Michael has years of experience at Wood Design and his respect for the techniques of the different eras dovetails with Paula’s creative flair. Paula, previously owner of Sublime Events, fine-tuned her skills coordinating bespoke décor for a wide variety of sensational events.
