Another Country makes contemporary craft furniture. Our designs are archetypal, calling on the familiar and unpretentious forms of British Country kitchen style, Shaker, traditional Scandinavian and Japanese woodwork. It’s the spirit and functionality of these honest forms of furniture that we endeavor to re-interpret for a modern customer.
Our promise to you:
We endeavour to produce our product and run our business at the most sustainable level possible. We source timber that is sustainably certified from either UK, European and US suppliers, manufacture in workshops in the UK and Europe, pack and deliver directly to you. We intend for our product to last and we do everything possible to give them longevity.
Another Country is made up of people who are committed to working and living responsibly. Every aspect of what we do is considered. From our beautiful business collateral (designed by Bravo Charlie Mike Hotel) that is kept to a necessary minimum, designed to be of generic use and printed on recycled stock, to our packaging that is made of recyclable cardboard with recyclable paper or board inserts. There are instances where our suppliers use packaging that may not always adhere to our standards but be assured that we work tirelessly to ensure they will do so.
Our day bed mattress and bolster, floor cushion and seat pad are made by Naturalmat for Another Country. Naturalmat is the only UK mattress maker using certified organic latex and certified organic coir (coconut fibre) and source their lambswool locally.
As our business grows we intend to stick to our principles and come up with solutions that enable us to grow sustainably and responsibly.
How it's made
We combine traditional methods of making with modern technology to ensure that each piece is made with great care, attention to detail and precision. Every piece is hand assembled, hand finished and quality controlled before leaving our workshops.
We have filmed one of our visits to our wonderful partner workshop in Portugal, one hour south of the beautiful city of Porto.
We really believe you can not make furniture in a better way than this. We hope you agree.
