I was one of the first people in the UK to start using MDF, when it was so hard to get I had to order it direct from the manufacturer.
Things have changed a lot since then, and now it's difficult to buy any kind of furniture that doesn't have MDF.
All these suites of furniture used to be manufactured by my manufacturing business in China; but that was before the world went to pot in 2008.
I don't know if I should be flattered by the fact that my furniture gets copied so much. You can buy pirate copies of my designs in China, Vietnam, Hungary, New Zealand, and America. But I'd rather you didn't.
This furniture is now all made to order in my own studios, which sounds expensive,...
But I've cut out: the shipping by sea; import expenses; the wholesaler; and the retailer.....
(all of these middle-men increase the factory cost of each piece by a multiple of x5)
This means that this furniture can be made to order for about the same price as you'd have paid in a shop in 2008.
