The Designers Behind Ethnicraft

You’ve shopped the stylish furniture pieces at Ethnicraft, lusted over them, and even brought them home – but have you ever wondered about the creative minds behind these best-selling works?

Here is an inside scoop to the designers we work with, and what inspired some of the Ethnicraft furniture pieces you all know and love.

heidi Heidi Earnshaw

With its clean lines and contemporary aesthetic, the Tripod Side Table by Heidi  Earnshaw is, without a doubt, a winning piece. The Toronto-based designer and  furniture maker takes her cue from Japanese and Scandinavian architecture, and  re-interprets historic pieces into modern furniture. But more than that, her  background in fine art and a deep understanding of the nature of wood make her  designs versatile enough for every home.

 Nathan Yong

Often described as one of the most influential designers of his generation, Nathan  Yong is the man behind the N-Chair collection. The Singapore-based innovator  isn’t just proficient in furniture design – he also dabbles in various fields from  interior design to architecture, graphics, product development, and  branding. Pieces from the N Chairs collection bear all the hallmarks of Yong’s  design ethos: modern, elegant, and eye-catching with a clever use of material. And  this year, Ethnicraft has launched a new version: the N4 High Chair, another eye-  catching piece to spruce up your interiors.

It takes a creative genius to come up with something as inventive as the Utilitile  Collection. Someone like Patrik Turner, one of Canada’s most innovative  furniture designers. Much of his designs have been featured in respected  publications and even housed in the Mint Museum in the U.S. – making every  piece from the Utilitile Collection a must-have collector’s item. Whether it’s the  Utilitile Hooked coat hook, Utilitile Keyed shelf or Utilitile Mirror tile, these  space-saving pieces are perfect for homes that are short on space but big on style.

 Patrik Pettersson

Swedes are famous for their clean, minimalist, and classic design aesthetic. The  Pettersson Dining Table by Swedish designer Patrik Pettersson is the perfect  embodiment of the signature Scandinavian look with its sleek lines, beautiful oak  and teak finish, and signature crossed legs. Pettersson may have first studied to be  a lawyer, but clearly, design is his calling – as evidenced by his strong  international reputation, having participated in many celebrated fairs such as  Maison & Objet in Paris and the Design Weeks of London and Milan.
 

It’s true what they say: behind every masterpiece is an artist. And with Ethnicraft furniture pieces, that is what you’ll get. A masterpiece conceptualised and crafted by some of the world’s most creative minds in design.
