Design Centre Stories

Style With Substance

Turnstyle Designs’ new showroom is a highly imaginative world of hardware. The British brand’s products are popular across the spectrum of design, from residential to commercial to superyachts.

Fusing quality that’s second to none – everything is hand-made, hand-stitched and hand-hammered in the Devon countryside – with an original design sense, it uses only high-quality solid brass and sources its vegetable-tanned leathers from Tuscan tanneries. Turnstyle Designs is also committed to lowering its impact on the planet: it has removed 99% of single-use plastics from its packaging, using biodegradable alternatives instead, and operates its factory and offices using self-generated solar energy.

Its latest offerings include a new matt-black chrome finish (pictured above) that takes its collections in a contemporary direction. Products in this finish are made to order – and the technique is a closely guarded secret.
