Tom and Danielle Raffield’s lifelong passion is steam bending wood into extraordinary curvy shapes.  They’ve spent much of their lives using the technique to make small-scale furniture and lighting, but now they’re taking their craft to the next level.

Their new home will have curvy steambent cladding, twisty hand made furniture and interior walls covered with a smorgasbord of naturally-weathered timber from their woodland.
