Meet Your Maker // Anna Nicoles – ALN Furniture
What started your journey into woodwork ?
I have been creative and interested in ‘Art and Design’ from a young age at school. I made my first piece of furniture, a rocking chair, as my final year A-level project. My teacher brought in his own wood lathe for us to have a go on. Which was my first introduction to woodwork and wood turning. I was hooked working with wood from this point.
If you could describe your work in three words – what would they be?
Creative, bespoke furniture
Who (or what) do you take inspiration from ?
I take inspiration from the natural world around us and architectural forms.
What project would you like to work on in the future ?
I would like to build my own eco-friendly workshop and home.
Which designers inspire your practice ?
John Makepeace and specifically his Millennium Chair.
