Supplier of the Week: Case Furniture

Case Furniture is our Supplier of the Week; 28 November - 4 December.

Case have been working with award-winning and world-renowned designers since 2006 to bring exceptional contemporary furniture design to the market at an affordable price. From a smaller residential order, through to large retail or commercial order, Case have the experience and manufacturing in place to satisfy both markets.

We spoke to the team to find out more.

What's the story behind Case?

The British furniture company Case promotes a core value of modernism in its belief that the best design should be accessible to the mass market. Case combines quality, tradition and cutting-edge technologies to make the works of designers like Matthew Hilton, Marina Bautier, Nazanin Kamali and Samuel Wilkinson available at accessible prices.

We are dedicated to delivering exceptional contemporary furniture design at good value.

How does sustainability feature in your designs?

Case’s key sustainability goal is to make products that have longevity both in terms of quality of design and constructional durability. Case believes that to have a product in daily use for 50yrs that can be passed down to another generation is a justifiable use of material. Another measure is to use sustainable timber from well managed sources and reduce waste where possible.

Sustainable timbers are used, such as in the Valentine Bed, Valentine Chest of Drawers & Valentine Bedside Table

How do you select the designers you work with?

It varies. Sometimes we are approached with new and exciting products and ideas. Other times, we recognise qualities in designers that reflect ours and that is often the best start.

We always have our eye on new designers.
