Furniture & Lighting Design
Melbourne, VIC, Australia
Tide Design are committed to the design and production of high quality, handmade, unique furniture, designed and built to provide an enduring appeal.
January 2007, and having decided to leave an office career, George Harper, the founder of TIDE Design, was about to embark on a Diploma of Furniture Design and Making at the Box Hill Institute, Melbourne. Whilst studying, weekends and evenings and any time in between was spent working in a small backyard shed, developing ideas, and producing chopping boards to be sold at local markets. Tide Design was soon to follow, and was established to market the handmade furniture that they are so passionate about creating and sharing. Since that time it has all been about developing the Tide Design range and style.
Tide Design were, and continue to be, inspired by simplicity, attention to detail, quality design and manufacturing, and most importantly, individuality. Tide Design have come a long way since those humble beginnings, but the guiding principles will always remain.
