Our first London Lives girl, Marie Dessuant, is the lead designer at contemporary furniture company, Another Country. Established in 2010, this London-based company resides in Kensal Rise, north west of the capital and Marie has worked there for almost a year. With inspirations from British country kitchens, to Shaker, traditional Scandinavian and Japanese woodwork, the look at Another Country is cool, clean and beautifully-crafted. From day beds to candle sticks and even work desks (we're very jealous of Marie's), all wooden products are made from solid woods in the UK and Europe, where they are manufactured in the Another workshops. Here are a few of our favourite pieces.
