This year’s Origin will be taking place from 2nd to 14th (closed on 8th) October and will feature a stand with examples of work by bespoke furniture designer-maker Christian O’Reilly. Based in Devon, Christian creates exquisite designs which stand out from the crowd thanks to a combination of good old-fashioned craftsmanship and uncluttered beauty. Christian uses a wealth of design experience to create stunningly simple designs with fluid lines and clean detail. The majority of his commissions are made from English hardwoods such as Cherry, Elm or Ripple Ash which he favours in particular for their intricate textures and hues. Christian’s range includes chairs, coffee tables, writing boxes and manuscript cabinets, all featuring his trademark combination of beauty and practicality. All of his products are bespoke, allowing him to create a design which fits perfectly with the client’s requirements. Christian’s work resonates with iconic style and exceptional craftsmanship, creating an end product that is truly individual and can be appreciated for generations.

Notes to Editors

Origin, The London Craft Fair is run by the Crafts Council and is now in its second year. The first show attracted over 22,000 visitors, bringing together over 300 of the most innovative and influential international designer-makers, and providing a rare opportunity to meet these makers and buy their work. Designs on show range from fashion accessories to functional and decorative objects, with the opportunity to commission one-off works of contemporary craft. Glass, ceramics, jewellery, metal, furniture, paper, basketry, wood and textiles are all represented, making the fair a true celebration of the unique and the hand-made. Origin takes place annually in Ben Kelly’s specially designed pavilion in the Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court at Somerset House.
