Out of the Dark is a charitable social enterprise that recycles, restores and revamps salvaged furniture as a means to train, educate and employ young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
May Design Series and Out of the Dark will be working together to bring awareness to the charity, and create a great feature at the show. Register now and check it out for yourself!
Out of the Dark prove they can contribute to any aspect of the furniture world.
Not only do they design and create their own furniture, they also breathe new life into old pieces, restore damaged funiture and work on special projects.
These are examples of furniture that young people at Out of the Dark designed and built...
These pieces are old or damaged furniture items that Out of the Dark have restored for clients...
They have also worked on a number of special projects, including Bloomberg's 'Waste not, Want it' project in which they were commissioned to revamp 18 chairs, 4 coffee tables and 3 floor lamps using Bloomberg's wire to do traditional crafts such as weaving, caning and rushing.
Out of the Dark appeared at INTERIORS UK in January with a stunning feature area of their work. At the end of the show we were able to provide them with a large amount of fabric from the Fabric Pavilion, designed by Shaun Clarkson.
The young members of the charity are using the provided fabric to create something spectacular for the May Design Series, launching their exciting new collaborative furniture range using fabric donated from exhibitors Timorous Beasties.
We can't wait!
