Having switched his attentions from fashion to furniture with the launch of his first collection in March 2020 – which just so happened to coincide with the start of the Covid pandemic – Jonathan Saunders has just announced his second collection of interior pieces for his eponymous label. While his fashion career has been nothing but a success to date, Saunders was never simply wedded to clothing, having trained as a product designer and furniture maker early in his education. Given the capabilities he has shown in both collections, his early training has dovetailed perfectly with his fashion design, contributing a bold use of textile to the forms he has imagined.
Solid, sculptural ‘deck chairs’ are covered in beautifully printed Saunders fabrics, statement screens pair dyed fabric with delicate timber joints, and bold cloud-like stools are expertly welded with the help of artisanal metal workers, with each piece displaying Saunders’ brilliant eye. See more of his work on his website and on Instagram.
