About the Maker: Furniture Designer Peter Bollington blends a background in Interior and Graphic Design with Fine Furniture manufacturing, to create handcrafted works which focus on a harmony between the object and the built environment they inhabit. Primarily focusing on the beauty and warmth of solid timber for his craft, Pete also compliments this material with snippets of plywood, and accents of colour, to provide the viewer with added levels of engagement with the works. His work seeks to balance clean lines and strong geometric shapes with a softness and refined touch enabled through the chosen materials.
Having studied at various design schools with Australia and gained additional experience working in interior design and furniture manufacturing, Pete launched his own furniture and design label 'Curious Tales' in Melbourne in 2013 and continues this practice in Canberra today.
