Shelf Life


It’s always great to re-discover a designer you were once very familiar with. Susan Bradley is one of the national treasures in the design world. She rose to fame with her insanely original Outdoor Wallpaper back in 2005 when she began being featured in every interior publication worth mentioning around the world. Her just as successful Creep range of shelves followed not long after.

I regret to say Susan fell off my radar for a few years after that, but this had the slight advantage of me being delighting with her work all over again [like a goldfish]! To cut a long story short – aren’t her new pieces brilliant?

‘Shelf Life’ is inspired by a visit to the Victoria and Albert Museum and household domesticity. Based on the shadows created by absent objects you may find on shelves – from vases to coffee pots, cake stands to jugs, the shelf sits in your home like a practical piece of art. These are very reasonably priced at £55 per shelf.
