Now here’s a lovely place for a Sunday morning browse. Trunk sells handcrafted furniture made from reclaimed teak. The founders, VJ and Jit work with small communities in developing countries and promise to tread lightly on the earth.

The collection is made in small workshops rather than large factories and, in addition to teak, include natural materials like linen, stone and silk.

There’s an undeniable Eastern twist to many of their pieces but they have a contemporary edge too which is what appeals to me. I have always wanted a wardrobe like the one in the image but I also love the sharp tailoring of this console.

This is a great idea. A table made from volcanic stone with a detachable lid so that you can store (or hide) things inside. I’m thinking a secret stash of salted caramels for starters. No-one would ever find them there.

And who doesn’t love a delicate hairpin leg on a well-turned stool? This is the mid-century influence coming through as it does below with this geometric stack of nesting tables.

Many of the designs are one-offs or, at most, limited edition, but contact them if there’s something you particularly like. You never know they might make you another.
