Katie Walker loves to produce original pieces of beautifully crafted contemporary furniture.
Katie has a fine art based approach - she creates pieces which are as beautiful as they are functional, often with an added element of surprise.
Since 1994, Katie's designs have been recognised with many awards, such as the Design Guild Mark from the Furniture Maker's Company, and pieces can be found in public galleries and private collections worldwide. Her work ranges from the light, witty ‘Weight and See’ cheval mirror through commercial commissions to art based sculptural pieces.
Katie has an uncompromising commitment to quality, a rigorous approach to the process of design and is passionate about keeping the industry alive. All Katie's pieces are hand crafted in the UK using only the finest quality materials.
We adore Katie's unique approach to furniture design. Her handcrafted pieces are innovative; such as her Windsor Rocker that uses a continuous band to form the rocker and chair frame, so it is no wonder that it was awarded the Design Guild Mark.
Katie's pieces blend the best of beauty and functionality which can be seen in her gorgeous Marilyn Side Table with its beautiful flowing leg design that create 'cubby hole' compartments underneath. This design is practical as you can hide any hallway clutter such as address books and still have the table top to happily home a lamp or cherished family items like photographs. Katie also touches upon the playful side of design with her Weight and See Mirror. Moving the steel ball on the base changes the angle of the mirror making this piece interactive and fun. Like many of her other pieces, it is a refreshing contemporary take on a traditional design.
We admire Katie's passion to create high quality pieces using sustainable, locally-sourced timbers, upholding the standards of great British craftsmanship.
