This elegant table combines inspiration from three different legacies. The polished Orkney stone top features an engraved Maeshowe dragon which is a reminder of when Vikings came to Orkney and all the reminders that they left behind. The style of the table is influenced by Charles Rennie MacIntosh and it is combined with the lasting legacy of the arts and crafts style. The legs are a prominent feature of this table as they terminate at the top of the table as a wedged through mortise and tenon joint. The legacy table is an extra special item of furniture as the materials made to use it all came from Orkney. The piece of stone for the top came from a quarry which is a fossil bed in the parish of Quoyloo and the wood used to make the table is a Whitebeem tree that was felled in Kirkwall.
Dimensions 360mm x 360mm x 505mm high
This coffee table features carved Walnut panels that feature the Orkney runic alphabet. These letters, written by vikings, can be found at various sites in Orkney and have been the influence of many Orkney creatives. Stone has been commonly used to make furniture in Orkney for many centuries, with the oldest examples being found at Skara Brae; the polished Orkney stone top in his design continues this with this theme.

Made using traditional basket making techniques and Orkney straw. This coiled basket has a more contemporary look as it is stitched using black flax string rather than the more traditional white sisal string. These time consuming-to-make baskets will last a lifetime and longer and will find a wide variety of uses around your home. The one Kevin's family have is used as a fruit bowl. Traditionally these basket were made entirely from straw and string but Kevin designs and makes his own version of these with a solid wooden base to make use of cuttings of wood in his workshop. This addition offers a more sturdy and practical item.
Materials - Orkney Oat straw, flax string, Oak base.
Dimensions 390mm diameter x 140mm high
The design and shape of this basket is inspired by the lines and shapes of traditional wooden built boats. Kevin's grandfather was a boatbuilder on the isle of Westray and he has long admired the skill and beauty of a hand built boat.
Materials - Orkney Oat straw, sisal string, oak
Kists are one of the most practical items of furniture to own. Made from Oak this designer kist is not only highly functional, it is also a beautiful statement piece for any style of home. The kist top features a stunning marquetry panel inspired by the famous Maeshowe Chambered Tomb. The marquetry, like all the different shapes, sizes and colours of the stones that make the tomb, all fit together to build up a circular design. The circular design of the marquetry piece culminates to an engraved brass disc in the centre that shines when the sun hits it just as the inside of the tomb lights up during the winter solstice. Inside the kist, there is a carved panel that says "Solstice" in runic letters. To meet additional storage needs, there is also box and drawer to be found. Early kists were not made using quality heavy timbers such as Oak, nor did they feature flush handles as this one does as they needed to be lighter and easier to lift for regular moving.
Materials - various timbers make up the marquetry panel along with the engraved brass disc, while the main kist is made from Oak with inlaid cherry above the carved handles.
