“Mark has a knack for seeing beauty and value in things others might discard. His was the original jam-jar light, and he and Sally were using antique grain sacks as upholstery and mismatched floorboards as panelling years before fashion caught up with them.” Stella magazine, the Telegraph
Made of Wood is a celebration of recycled pieces, age-old crafting techniques, clean modern lines, and global influences as well as art and tableware with a handmade feel.
Explore the modern craft movement and maker culture with Made of Wood, the latest book from award-winning retailers Mark and Sally Bailey of destination concept store Baileys Home.
The first half of the book explores the many ways in which we can use wood in our homes – sculpted, left in its natural state, roughly sawn or smoothly planed, recycled, or painted. The second half of the book, Wooden Stories, contains 12 case studies, each one offering a glimpse into the homes of people who have used this most ancient and versatile of materials in creative and inspiring ways.
Living with wood brings tactile comfort to every day, warms any interior, and will give your home a sense of soul that is so often lacking in this age of mass production.
