Christopher Burley of Heliconia Furniture designs and makes contemporary re-imaginings of 20th century classics, from the Edwardian decorative to the simple lines of the mid-century modern. His inspiration varies from the extremes of post war architecture to the soft nostalgia of the Arts & Crafts movement.
Whether you are considering adapting an existing Heliconia piece or wish to commission something entirely new, your creative imagination and specific requirements will help Chris produce something totally unique.
Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
