Tom Mark Henry’s James Richardson Furniture Edit
Sydney, NSW, Australia
Finding utility and comfort in James Richardson Furniture’s Miniforms and TON collections, Tom Mark Henry’s edit celebrates designs whose timeless quality and minimalist aesthetic make living easy – each piece defined by the finesse with which it explores materiality, light and sculptural form.
Coming together in 2014 to form Tom Mark Henry, Cushla McFadden and Jade Nottage, the duo behind the internationally recognised studio, value functionality and authenticity above all else. Designing for an increasingly broad portfolio of retail spaces, private homes and hospitality venues, Tom Mark Henry’s selection of pieces from James Richardson Furniture’s collections accentuates the studio’s love of simplicity.

Light is deliberately harnessed in the furnishings Tom Mark Henry has selected. The Ozz floor lamp acts as small side table and as a beacon of warmth in a room. Adapted for the wall, the arc and conical shade slot into small spaces yet perform as a feature, while its minimalist aesthetic and clean lines cement it as a favourite of Tom Mark Henry’s.
The Juice table sees light refracting through its positive and negative space, with the simplicity of the form and balance between light and darkness giving it a meditative air. Similarly, the silhouettes created in the frames of TON Armchair 30 play with light, shadow and space. Meanwhile, the translucent amber glass of the SodaSideTable seems to be illuminated from within when the light strikes it. This piece is reminiscent of the 1970s, imbued with a bespoke quality that drew Tom Mark Henry’s co-founders to the design.

Further standouts of the Tom Mark Henry edit are defined by their sculptural forms. The rotund, unconventional shapes of the Botega sofa immediately evoke comfort, with supportive lines to recline against. The geometry of the marble Chap Coffee Tables make them feel like permanent centre pieces, and the TON Armchair811 sees the addition of a sculptural arm elevate the classic design.
Timeless yet eclectic, the Miniforms and TON collections from James Richardson Furniture pay homage to the idea of interior design as a holistic process, in which items must both harmonise with their surroundings while singing their own song. Tom Mark Henry’s edit captures the essence of these collections, responding to both the character and minimalism inherent in both.
