Straw Collective creates furniture that straddles the line between playful and polished. By balancing these two qualities, the pieces become contemporarily unique, perfect for that modern individual or family looking for something to add character and personality to the home.

Launching their debut collection of lighting and furniture during the London Design Festival 2011, Straw Collective showcased their clean aesthetic and quirky touches. A group of extremely talented designers, Straw Collective is made up of Davide Bianchi, Graham Smith, Ola Leander and Sam Hextall. Hailing from backgrounds of graphic design, product design, furniture making and scenic artistry, the four creatives make highly functional and original designs that clearly make a statement.

Although Straw Collective's designs conform to a certain direction, they are surprisingly versatile, allowing them to fit into just about any space. Stats for Playfully Polished Furniture Trending: Older & Buzzing
