AND Furniture was established in 2010 by London-based Melanie Nelson with a mandate to source, design, manufacture and promote exceptionally crafted furniture for the collector and design enthusiast.
Melanie has been a practicing Interior Designer for almost 30 years, working internationally for much of that time, including 17 years as a partner in Addison Nelson.
The AND philosophy is rooted in the desire to explore new ideas and approaches, to collaborate with artists, technicians and artisans to produce the best products that are possible.
Melanie has designed chairs for the Royal Academy of Music in London and has also exhibited her furniture creations in Verona, Italy with international design firm Sawaya and Moroni, and has shown at RIBA London.
Formed in 2011 together with Hong Kong-based textile designer and long-time friend, Di White. This was a natural evolution for AND Furniture strengthening the international exposure of the brand as well as the ties between Hong Kong and London.
Di also specialises in sourcing products and materials for local architects and designers as well as maintaining her reputable and authoritative web blog at insitehk.wordpress.com.
