Baines & Fricker

fill them, stack them, hang them, mount them, love them.

With great design comes great versatility combine that with a great aesthetic and you've got the perfect recipe for fabulously designed interiors. We couldn't wait to get our hands on this brilliant revival of the classic fruit crate, and now we're happy to announce that the Baines & Fricker fruit crate is now in the boutique showing off one of Britain's great creative talents.

Brighton based Baines & Fricker are a husband and wife team bringing creative, innovative products to the design market. Snapped up by the likes of Liberty and Paul Smith their unique designs and individual stamp are being appreciated and are already having a big influence on how we choose to style our interior space.

It is no wonder that Steve Baines and Eliza Fricker's collaboration is such a great success; Baines has has a background in furniture making and Fricker illustration and screen-printing.  Together their utilitarian approach to design influenced by a wide range of elements; early modernist through to post war utility furniture, industrial architecture and the even the more mundane and everyday such as street signs, their inspiration is full of the often overlooked aspects of our heritage. They believe that things for the home should have longevity and they use this philosophy when creating their pieces, keeping British heritage at the heart of it all.

Taking on the fruit crate using strong lines and saturated colour these 'nutility' pieces are made with birch ply sourced in the UK and made in their workshop on the south coast of England.

The fruit crates are brilliantly versatile you can use them in as many ways as you'll find things to store inside. Used for storage in any room in the house you can sort them into existing shelves, stack them up or mount them on the wall.
