Vintage Classic Design At Raspberry Mash

Posted on Nov 30, 2015 by

Whether your home office is carved out of an alcove or you have a smart study, add a vintage design classic to really up the style stakes.

A post-war British icon, the understated Esavian desk was conceived by English designer James Leonard. Esavian was the trading name for the Educational Supply Association Ltd, a leading supplier of functional and affordable school furniture, fixtures and books. There is some dispute over whether the distinctive compass-inspired leg design was the original brainchild of James Leonard or his French counterpart Jean Prouve. But there is no denying the enduring appeal of this mid-century classroom classic.

This is a superb machinist’s stool by British industrial manufacturer ‘Evertaut’. The stool is in well used condition but this gives it a wonderful look and character.

Task lighting doesn’t get any better than an original Herbert Terry Anglepoise lamp. This lamp at Raspberry Mash dates from the mid-century and is fully working as well as full of character.
