Online Shop of the Week - Jake Phipps

Well this isn't technically an online shop but I've loved Jake Phipp's work for such a long time that I'm sneaking him in as a shop - you can order from him direct so that surely counts!

Jake set up his product design business in 2005 in response to an increased demand for his work. He originally trained as a cabinetmaker and began by designing and making one-off furniture on a commission basis. His work caters for a wide range of projects both commercial and domestic and includes Isis the world's thinnest folding chair at just 3cm and the quirky Jeeves and Wooster pendant lights made from bowler and top hats.

I covet Jake's beautiful and simple love seat made from solid cedar. It is a classic piece of understated functional design.
